There’s a chill in the air, which means autumn is here in the northern hemisphere! It’s time to pull out those fuzzy sweaters, warm socks, and get your fall crafting on! Today our gals are exploring fall and Halloween with the GORGEOUS Amber Moon collection by Frank Garcia!
First up is a delightful Amber Moon lantern by Anita! She even has a process video so you can see how it is made. “I love Halloween even though we don’t really celebrate it in Australia! However, I think it’s great to decorate and watch kids dress up and have fun.” ~ Anita

Ride off in splendous style in this amazing carriage created by Tanya! "Amber Moon is such a beautiful fall collection, I love all the rich warm colors! Today I am sharing a Pumpkin Carriage created with the help of my Silhouette (if you have the machine herewith the ID number for the pumpkin used: #101261) and some cutting dies. To spice it up I added 'Princess' Rita, a Julie Nutting Doll Stamp to the scene. What would a carriage be without a princess right?! I colored her using the Julie Nutting Hair & Skin Tones Watercolor Pencils and the Metallic Accents for her clothes.I used the Julie Nutting skirt stamp and Aurora's pretty hat to dolly her up and then I added some lace, leaves, string and pretty Prima flowers for the finishing touch." - Tanya

Next is this breath-taking autumn wreath by Jaya! “The Amber Moon collection by Frank Garcia is a beautiful fall-themed collection with a vintage feel to it. I was really inspired by the Amber Moon logo graphic and, so, for today's project, I decided to make something similar. I colored the hoop twigs using Dark chocolate Impasto paint and Rust effect paste. For the cluster I arranged some fussy cut images and some gorgeous flowers from the Amber Moon collection.” ~ Jaya

We LOVE memory keeping and the Amber Moon line is perfect for those pumpkin patch photos and more! “I love fall colors! Last year, when I saw Frank’s Amber Moon collection, I was so happy! My layout plays with the oranges and the greens of the collection over a more neutral background. I love the texture of the papers!” ~ Karine
