September is happily welcomed into my life with a smile and looking forward to my favorite month of the year, October. Perhaps it’s because I was born in the fall that I embrace the days of autumn. Cooler weather, an earthy fragrance, and the subtle changes mother nature invokes brings me joy. This September will be one to remember. My children and grandchildren will be here at the end of the month…just in time for marshmallows toasting over a wood burning fire in the ring, a celebration of fall, and hugs galore.
This week we’ll celebrate September and Friday KISS No.13 with 3 charming papers.
Welcome September papers are 8.5 in x 11 in with a golden yellow and cream stripe and gingham patterns with images from old garden catalogs that hale from the late 1800s. The rustic cart image began as an advertisement in a farm magazine from the early 1900s. The script on the middle page are the notes from a naturalists field journal, also from the late 1800s.

Papers are handy for so many things, big projects like creating beautiful, stuffed-full journals, making lovely boxes to hold everything from paper scraps to luxurious gifts or a card. I used the 3 papers to collage an autumn card.
Let’s make a list of ways to use papers :
- Collage wall art
- Tags and Labels
- Wire twists
- Party decorations
- Accordion pinwheels
- Cupcake papers and wrappers
- Cupcake toppers
- Tablescape decorations
- Treat Bags
- Party Favors
- Paper Beads
- Use in altered books
- Straw FLags
- Recycle, upcycle cans into desk accessories
- Recipe cards, tabbed dividers
- Cover an old recipe box
- Napkin rings
The list could go on and on, but we’l leave there for now because I’m sure you get the picture. I’m running late so that’s it for today. Happy creating. . .
Have a lovely day/evening!
