Crafty Secrets Blog Candy!

Yippie! I'm off to the cabin again this weekend and have Friday off! YAY FOR ME! I'm even going to bring paper this time so I actually have something to stamp on! DOUBLE YAY!

So since you all had to listen to me whine last week about my graffiti covered garage, I'll pay back the love by giving away a CRAFTY SECRETS stamp set! So it's a WINE SET from the WHINER! Tee hee.

Ok, I'm not funny. Anyway. So one quick announcement. If you are using the Crafty Secrets stamp sets and posting them at Splitcoast, we LOVE you for it. We'd love you even MORE if you'd post your stuff to the Crafty Secrets Gallery...did you know the gallery there is not just for the design team? If you're loving the Crafty Secrets Stamp Sets and are creating fabulous stuff with it, we wanna see it! So sign up for a gallery here: Register
And then start uploading your eye candy!

There is one trick to uploading. You'll have to reduce your photo size down to a manageable size via your photo editing software or your digital camera. The size that works best for me is no bigger than 6" wide by 10" high, or 100K or less. You'll upload the same way as you do on Splitcoast, but with smaller photos. So the biggest challenge will be to try to figure out your photo editing software...HP or Adobe, etc. Ok?

Ok. So what to comment on. Hmm...lets do this. In the comments section, post your name & favorite thing about fall. I'll choose a winner on Sunday evening, Sep. 16th!

See you Sunday! :)

Love, T.W. (The whiner)

Wow! I'm the first one! Number one never wins...:( I soooo want this stamp set though!! Guess I'll just have too buy it. My fav thing about fall is everything!! I live in SE Texas so it is HOT! We don't get the beautiful falls most people get but we do get some relief from the sweltering heat. I love when a cool front comes through and there is a beautiful breeze. It gives me hope that we will have a cold winter.
Thanks,
Angie

Susan said...

What I love about fall in north Texas is the cold fronts that come thru and cool down the Texas heat

Susan Daly said...

The thing I love about Fall is the cooler temperatures and the colors of the leaves.

Scrap for Joy said...

Pennsylvania is beautiful in the Fall. My favorite thing is jumping into my hubbys red Miata with the top down and cruising in the countryside to gawk at the beautiful leaves. (with him of course)Crafty Secrets are my favorite stamps and I love this one! Love your work Lisa. Joyce

Elaine said...

Hey TW! I love the warm indian summers that fall brings. I am in love with the world at this time of year. People are tan, everyone's happy, we're getting ready for harvest parties/halloween, soup tureens, and all is well!! That's what I love about the season!

Peggy S said...

I love the Bird Notes set -- awesome! Thanks for reminding me to check out the gallery over there and maybe upload my cards. Need to step it up a notch though first ;)

I love the crisp air and changing leaves of the fall. And also -- apple picking time!! Love going to an orchard -- getting warm apple cider too!

Rita said...

I love the cool crisp air & the beautiful colors mother nature delights in at this time of year, which is my favorite by the way! Thanks.

Kathyc on SCS said...

Woohoo, my first visit and I come upon a giveaway! Thanks for the tip to use the Crafty Secrets gallery; I bought some of the fabric swatches and need to get busy with them! I love fall cause I live in New England; what's NOT to love!

SusanH said...

Wow - great set - I'm actually a winer, not a whiner! (just kidding)
My fav thing about fall is the weather and the colors - color everywhere!!

Cathy said...

I need...yes need, not want...NEED this set! Why you ask? Cuz I'm a WHINER and a good one at that! At least that is what my DH says. My favorite thing about fall is the leaves changing to beautiful colors, the weather for HOT HOT HOT to crisp cool sweater shirt weather. I love to make cards and altered items in fall colors. Last thing is all the FUN holidays that are just around the corner. Thanks for a chance at your sweet crafty secrets candy.

KardKrazy said...

I've got a few of these clear sets from Craft Secrets --just love them. But I don't have this one -- yet! Favorite thing about fall?
The trees changing color, without a doubt. In the Midwest we get beautiful colors in the fall.

mamastamper said...

Here's my whine...well, not really, but here goes:
Fall means so much to me. Fall is definitely a time of reflection. There is so much warmth to be found on many levels when faced with cooler temperatures. A coolness that allows you to focus on what brings your heart warmth-food, children, family, art, music, or whatever brings you peace. It allows for a clear mind as the season begins to mature before entering into life's dormant winter. Ok, I'm beginning to get too deep.
Thank you for offering this candy.
-Mary Lou

Michelle said...

I don't have any CS sets yet, but if I win yours, I promise I'll post work in both galleries! :)
My favorite thing about fall is the changing leaves; it's the thing I miss most living in So. Cal. - no leaves to change here!

SmilynStef said...

I love so many things about fall, but probably my favorite is going for a drive on a cool afternoon to look at the leaves and changing countryside ~ Stephanie

Donna said...

I LOVE fall! Living in Central TX, I welcome the drop in temps...although this summer has by far been the least normal since I've lived here (10 yrs) I also love pumpkin! pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, pumpkin crunch (I made some tonight!) I just wish I knew what pumpkin juice was like (Harry Potter fans know what I'm talking about) Great fun set! love your blog!

HB said...

hmmmmm, my favorite thing about fall. Oh, I know.... A roaring Bonfire and a cold beer, on a cool, crisp night!
Have fun at the cabin - don't forget your *tacklebox*!!!

Lindy Stamper said...

I *heart* fall! Oh, let me count the ways. I live in Houston, not only do we have the Texas heat, I have that PLUS humidity. Dallas at least get the dry heat, I get that wet, icky, sauna type heat. Bleh! I just love the sweatshirt and shorts or jeans combo. It's nice but fun combo. Ooooh, and sweaters, I love sweaters... nice thin ones for the day and cashmeres for the cooler nights (which we really only get 2 weeks of those). We don't get turning of the leaves, but for the little fall we get, I LOVE!

snowmom13 said...

Hi Lisa,
I'm Anette and my favorite thing about Fall is the COLORS!!! I just LOVE Fall colors- the oranges, reds, yellows and browns. GORGEOUS!
Have fun at the cabin this weekend (and a long weekend to boot- you lucky duck!) :0)

Merveilleuse said...

There are so many things I like about fall. the colours for sure, but also the sunsets through the trees, and building fires to sit and cuddle.

Tamara :)

Sunflower Stamper said...

Love the set-I'm a Whiner too! My favorite part of fall is the cooler temps, digging out that sweatshirt for the first time! and the colors too. It's always so refreshing after the heat that we get in July & Aug!

jodene said...

A wonderful stamp set. My favorite thing about fall is the leaves falling. I like the sound of it on my feet. Also enjoy a hot fire and some marshmallows. Thanks for the chance!

Betty said...

My favorite thing aoubt fall is the crisp air and all the pretty colors!!

Well Said Cards said...

I would love this stamp set! I'm a huge fan of your blog. I love the clothes for Fall. Big, cozy sweaters and scarves. I also love using the fireplace. Oh and most of all COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!

Anonymous said...

My favorite thing about fall is the slower pace after a summer of activities. I love the cooler days and gorgeous colors too.

Starqueen said...

Hi Lisa,
I live in New England and I LOVE the fall season. I think the changing colors of the foliage is my favorite thing about it!

Your work is great, and I love Crafty Secrets!! They are on my wish list...along with Copics. I hear you on that one!
Thanks for sharing!
Regina

paige Gonzalez said...

OH how i MISS the Fall!!!! I live in Sunny Southern California and we don't have a real Fall. I love the smell and feel of the cool crisp air and the beautiful red, yellow and orange colors of the leaves getting ready to drop off of the trees. Please send some Fall my way..... :o)

Jan Scholl said...

fall- other than the colors, I hate it. I hate winter and the only thing good overall is that it revolves back to spring and summer. Can you tell I like it warm, and sunny and sticky and sweaty. I hate cold!!!!!!!!!!!

Tara said...

hmmm...favorite thing about fall would have to be all of it!! I love Halloween, Thanksgiving, the cool air, burning pumpkin and cinnamon candles, the fun fall decor, the changing leaves, when it starts getting darker earlier...well I could go on and on... :)

Tejal said...

The best thing about fall is the multitude of colors.
Thanks for the candy, and I think another blog candy should be in the near future....you're fast approaching 50K hits. congrats!

bluemoon said...

I love what happens when you stamp. Mine is even worse LOL. To me fall is the best time of year. The extreme heat has passed, yet warm sunny indian summer days are still around and winter seems far away still. I love the fresher, less humid and cooler air at night for sleeping... thank you.

The Queen Of Scrap said...

My favorite thing about fall is going to the pumpkin patch with the kids. I just love it there. I think I have more fun than the kids do! Great place to take pictures!

Robyn said...

Wow wouldn't I love to win this stamp set!
My favourite thing about fall is the changing light and the falling leaves, one of the most beautiful times of the year.
Thanks.

Karen Gladney said...

Would love to win this stamp set. I love the colors of fall and I love the crispness of the weather.

doverdi said...

I have seen a few of these Crafty Secrets sets & really like them. Thanks so much for the chance to win one.

I'm Diane from Ontario, Canada. My favorite thing about fall would have to be watching the leaves change color & all the fall fairs.

Sandra Smart said...

ok., even though I know it is still officially summer,...it really seems like it is fall here in NY already. The temperature has cooled so nicely outside and I have colored leaves on my tree in my front yard. And the kids just started back to school. I love my children, but also love that they are back in school because that means more time for stamping! :)

chelemom said...

Somehow I feel this post was especially made for me....LOL! Can I play? Don't have this set! Would love to !!!! My favorite thing about fall would have to be Halloween. We celebrate and decorate like it is Christmas here!

Julesiana said...

Could you pick something harder?? LOL!!!

I just love fall. Perhaps my favorite part is when the leaves get crunchy and they crunch when yo walk on them. I walked to school everyday as a child, I loved crunching on the leaves on the way to school!

Lisa said...

Any of us who live in the north can tell you.. There's nothing better than the clean crisp air and the beautiful colors of the changing leaves..

Anouk Martin said...

My favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather and the changing leaves. Have fun this weekend. Can't wait to see what you create! Hugs, Anouk

Linda SS said...

Wow - your cards are really amazing! Fall is the most beautiful time of year with the changing of the leaves. Just wish it lasted longer. It seems to last about 2 weeks and then Winter and the snow arrives and lasts 4 looooong cold months!

Michelle Roberts said...

Having been born and raised in FL I didn't know much about the seasons until I recently moved to the North Georgia mountains. I absolutely love the change of seasons and fall is probably my favorite time of year. As soon as you are tired of one season here comes something new! I love how people set out thier fall displays of bales of hay, pumpkins and corn stalks all around town. I call them fall festivals! LOL And I just love to see them everywhere. I love the cool breeze and the leaves falling! It is a wonderful exciting time of year and I hope it gets here soon!

I also really adore this stamp set! It is so gorgeous! And being a SU demo I don't buy much in the way of stamps outside of SU but this one is one I really need! Thanks so much!!

AscenderRisesAbove said...

visting from "stampin' when i can"; fav fall thing - tree leaves changing color, falling to the ground - the sound of crunching leaves, the smell of burning leaves - memories of toasting marshmallows over them

Paula said...

We don't get much fall in Dallas, but I do love to see the trees change their colors! And I've got the perfect spot for this stamp set--my home!

Angel Wilde said...

My name is Angel and Autumn is my favorite season. The colors are absolutely stunning. It's definitely God's most colorful seAson!

Kimi said...

CARAMEL APPLES! That's just one of the things I love about the fall...what a beautiful season...Thanksgiving....cooler weather...the colors of nature..."happy fall ya'll"...the days start to shorten (more time indoors with the family-and more sleep time!) This blog candy would be the icing on the cake! Thank you for giving!!!!!

Debbie Yates said...

The fall, and especially September is my favorite time of year - the cooler weather, raking leaves, my birthday....but my all-time favorite is apples...baked, fried, sauce, pies, cobbler...mmm-mmm good!

God Bless -

PS Love your blog!

KayellWY said...

Have a great weekend! I love the colors of fall. Of course, I love the cooler temperatures to, but I'm not a winter person. I miss *color* during the winter and I'm always excited to see the grass turning green and the colors of the flowers in the springtime. Gotta have color!

MANDEE said...

My favorite thing about fall is the colors!!! I love how the oranges, browns, and yellows all blend together on the trees and then the leaves fall and cover the ground. I love the smell of fall too, nice crisp and clean...when U can open your windows for a while and enjoy it, before you have to shut it up again and use the heater! I live in Missouri though, so on ANY given day you can use your heater AND A/c all at once!!!!! LOL! PS...I LOVE YOUR BLOG! IT TRULY FEELS ME WITH INSPIRATION!

Anonymous said...

I love everything about fall! Apples, pumpkins, Halloween and sweater weather! Thanks so much! Lisa K

Tisha\ said...

Oh! Pick me! Pick me! My favorite thing about fall is the morning practice of the high school band near my house. It's the sure sign that fall is here and a new tune is in the air.

Denise said...

My favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather, but not too cool that you need to start messing with a coat! Here in NY, fall is also great for foliage and APPLES!

Anonymous said...

Hi!! I'm from NY and the thing I love most about fall is it being cool enough to cook all the cozy things I love to bake- apple crisp, apple honey pie, choc covered apples, pumkin choc chip muffins....and the foliage here in NY is amazing!!! Thanks for hosting such a wonderful give away!! I just LOVE Crafty Secrets!!! from Michaelann

twinks said...

I would love to experience the colors of all the leaves turning color. I have not experienced it first hand. There is not much fluctuation in our seasons here in Hawaii.

I love your blog - especially when you are on the hunt for new treasures!

Desi said...

Hi, I'm Desi and I live in beautiful western Kentucky. This area is known for it's "tobacco growing." Although I am not a smoker, I do love the smell of the tobacco being "fired" in the barns around this area. The air is crisp, the colors of autumn are everywhere, and people seem to be smiling more!
Have a good day!

rozie640 said...

I love the cooler temperature even though I live in Southern California. We do get a few trees on our block that get some yellow and red leaves but not nearly enough so I have to satifsy the seasons change with the decorations I see in peoples yards for Halloween and then Christmas and all the seasonal stuff in the stores. Wish I could live on the east coast for a few weeks a year just to see and feel the change from summer to fall!

Tosha said...

Fall is my favorite season and it's for two reasons. 1. colors
2. cool temperatures

Anonymous said...

I just ordered the Sexy Little Number Set--so cute. I have a cabin too and often forget an essential supply to make a card. Very frustrating. Really makes you feel at loose ends, doesn't it? My favorite thing about fall is the change in temperatures, as I live in AZ and by then we are all really tired of the 100+ temperatures.--Donna

Jillisgram said...

I love the colors and the cooler temperatures. Keep up the good work, you are an inspiration to me!
Thanks, Val

Trudi said...

First, what I love about Fall....I live in Eastern Washington, and we definitely have all four seasons...what I really like about Fall as a child I couldn't wait to get "back to school" to see my friends. We live very rural (then and now) on a farm with orchards, so we worked all summer and couldn't wait to be done by the end of peach season. Now, as an adult, my husband and I with 2 small children do the same, although the work is much different! I see the HUGE excitement on my kids faces this time, which reminds me of how excited I was their ages! It's the "harvesty" feeling that I love as we get ready for the cool winter! (I know, harvesty is a bit strange...it's just a feeling of accomplishment I guess...)
Second, I have become a HUGE fan of Crafty Secrets and have started making fun cards! I'm not new to crafting, but I am new to uploading pics on galleries. I'm thinking I may attempt to upload a picture here!!!!
Third, thanks for the blog. Your work is fab and I really am enjoying what I have bought so far from Crafty Secrets...there is another order in my future....!!! (Old Fashioned Christmas for one, and I really want the Sentiment one!) Love the WINE set! I'm in wine country, and have a few items in my business (chocolate) that we just launched! Love it!
Trudi

Thanks for the chance at this great prize! My favourite thing about fall is the cool nights - great for sleeping under a cozy duvet.

SusanH also said...

I love the colors and the fact that we have more time to get together with family and friends, as here in Alaska the summer is much too short and everyone is out enjoying it. Love your work. Wishing you a wonderful weekend at the cabin! SnowyAK

Dottie K said...

Well I love fall! The colors are so vibrant, the cool crisp air, sweatshirt weather and the pumpkins. Love seeing the kids dressed up for Halloween. Thanks for such great candy and have fun stmaping. :)

KOstvig said...

I love the leaves changing color and the perfect temp of the cooler weather. It doesnt hurt that my b-day is in the Fall also.

Connie said...

My favorite thing about fall is the changeing colors! And my birthday is in Nov!

Babs said...

Helloooooo! I am from southwestern PA and definitely the Fall Foliage is one of my favorite things! We have the most beautiful scenery around when the leaves change colors. I have to say though, a close second is football season! I just love the smells of a football game - great food, fans cheering, the band playing, uniforms getting dirty - love it!
Thanks for the chance to be the WHINER...I mean WINNER! :-)

WENDI K, CHICAGO said...

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT FALL IS HOW THE TREES TURN ALL THOSE BEAUTIFUL COLORS, COMPARE TO THE BASIC GREEN IN THE SUMMER. I ALSO LIKE THAT HALLOWEEN AND THANKSGIVING WILL SOON BE HERE AND THOSE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE HOLIDAYS. LIVING IN CHICAGO MEANS GET READY FOR THOSE "WINDY" NIGHTS.

Betz said...

I Live in Michigan where all the leaves change colors and love to drive along hilly roads and look ahead and just see tree lines of colors. Did this just this week on a trip to Cheyboygan how beautiful. I also love visiting the apple orchards for warm cider and doughnuts.

Janet allen said...

The colors of fall are my favorites. But I also enjoy the holidays...Halloween, Thanksgiving, and my daughter's birthday.

QC said...

I *miss* fall colours as we don't see them here on my rock.....summer means the trees have leaves....fall means they don't. LOL

And I'm a maniac for Halloween....

melissa roth said...

I live in the Pacific NW where there is definitely 4 seasons with their own beauty and style. Fall is so colorful with it's tapestry of golds, yellow, reds, olives, and orange. The BEAUTY of each season, Fall in particular, is what I love the most.

paperfrenzy said...

Hi Lisa!

Thanks for the blog candy op! I LOVE this set!!!

My fav thing about fall in UT is the mid-range temps, colored leaves, and the crisp smell in the air! Oh -- and wrapping up in cozy sweaters, too!

Blessings,

Mary

Micki Cline said...

Since I LOVE color (and coloring!) my favorite thing about fall in the upper midwest (Iowa) is the changing colors of the leaves in the landscape.

Bevie Pearl said...

What I love about Fall is EVERYTHING!! I love the cool temperatures, the changing colors, the crunch of walking on leaves and the holidays (Halloween and Thanksgiving) are about eating and having fun!!
