Moxie Monday: Recess & Farm Fresh from October Afternoon

I don't know what it is about October Afternoon, but it just makes me happy.

All over.

If I were to really think, you know, dissect, the emotional reaction I have to its lines, I would have to say it is a combination of its simplicity and its color schemes.

There is a lot to be said for simple. There is even more to be said for color schemes that reach deep down inside and tickle my fancy.

And themes? Well, we all know how big vintage is--our current obsession with scooping up the past and tasting its bygone flavor is the order of the day. October Afternoon serves up their style with a clean and simple approach to vintage, then delivers some sweetness with the delicious color combinations that just make me want to come back for more!

For instance, in these papers from the Report Card collection, I am taken back to the old school books that I used in elementary school, though trust me they never came with coordinating patterns and colors like these:

Recess

Story Hour

Bus Route

Field Trip

Science Fair

Hot Lunch

It's the same with Farm Fresh. Simple patterns from the farm houses of a bygone era, but done up in colors that melt my heart like butter:

Farm House

Hay Barn

Chicken Coop

Farm Yard

South Forty

Root Cellar

Journal Cards

You know what I mean? I'd love to hear your take on these lines, and to thank you for doing so, I'll select four random winners. I've got two collections of each and I'd just love to send one of them your way. Just leave me a comment by midnight MST on Sunday, September 13 and I could be scooping up a little piece of the past just for you!

Happy Labor Day in the USA,

~Cath

Terry Oulboub said...

As I scrolled through the papers, I was loving the farm animals because I'm a city girl (San Francisco) and as a kid, thought going to the Cow Palace to see cows and horses were a huge treat! Seeing these papers took me back down memory lane. Then, I saw Recess and Story Hour and thought, wow, I have a card in mind already for that paper! WOW! What a catch!

Janelle said...

I love, love, LOVE both of these lines! My parents were teachers, I'm a teacher -- anything school will always capture my heart. Same with farm -- especially this time of year when we city girls can go to the state and county fairs to experience a little "farm." Thanks for the chance to win!!

Laura said...

Things to do with school are catching my eye, as I get ready to send my little angel off to her first day of kindergarten tomorrow. Sniff. I love polka dots and it would be fun to combine the journaling cards with the school-related papers to chronicle this earth-shattering event. ;-) And in the other set, the little animals are very sweet -- the journaling cards really pull the set together.

Chrissy said...

Oh wow! I hope these end up in my mailbox! :-)

sandee said...

I love the colors and the journaling cards are so cute AND practical. I might be the only one though but the themed papers are so cute that I wouldn't want to cover them up with photos so I really like the pattern papers the best. ( I would have to cut up the themed papers and use them in pieces instead of as a whole! )

Piali said...

Story hour, root cellar and hey barn.....absolute favorite . the farm fresh journaling spots are too cute...love the October Afternoon lines as always.

Leo said...

I've been a big OA fan since the beginning too. I was first drawn in by the polka dots - never seen so many lush polka dotted patterns! - after that anything OA quickly became my fave! Love the papers and the just right colours and also if anyone hasn't and is reading this you have to check out the stamps, some many fantastic alphas with a fab retro feel - love them!!

Marilyn said...

October Afternoon has become one of my favorite paper companies, lately. They have been offering many fresh and colorful designs that work with my style right now.

Ginger said...

I just love the collect, really like the farm house one the best...

Ginger said...

I have always appericated vintage papers but never used them because in most of my scrapbooking they never seemed right, but since I've been doing altered art and atcs. I love buying a using vintage stuff. I'm starting to carry it over in to my scrapbooking. I love the papers you show off and especially these. I am studying to become I teacher and I typical grab school related papers whenever I can because I can use it to scrapbook my future classes and/or use it in creating things for the classroom. The farm house line is beautiful too. It would be great of altered projects.

Stephanie said...

I love (and I mean LOVE) those coordinating papers!!! October Afternoon is so awesome - I love how they seemlessly combine pastels with bold vivid colors. My fav may be Field Trip...no wait...Recess....ummmm...Science Fair - darn decisions :)

Kerry said...

These are both so cute! I love the Story Hour and Hay Barn. Plus both sets of journal cards are fabulous! Thanks for the chance to win!

Alicia said...

I adore this stuff. I have always been a fan of such styles, it reminds me of some of the lovely fabric lines that I am so fond of. I cannot wait to get ahold of this!

taranicole <"3 )~ said...

Seeing as I am a therapist in a school and we take the kids on a LOT of field trips. I love the vintage feel of these and the way they flow together. It would be awesome to make a whole vintage scrapbook of the school year with these snazzy papers!

Elaine said...

Recess looks very versatile but fun with the elements that relate to school! Of course we all love the farm animals too - doesn't everyone? I mean the journaling cards are WAY cute!

Laura said...

This is a theme I've been interested in lately too. It started with looking for baby fabric and seeing "Dick & Jane". Now all I want are papers from that era. I really like the colors in both series of paper and will have to look for them at my LSS.

julie.schellin said...

So retro-tastic! October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket,Sasafras Lass- all of the companies do an excellent job of complementing their playfully vintage looking graphics with delicious colors that look like they are straight out of a fond memory. They make me nostalgic and happy all at once.

Michelle said...

My mother took pictures of us every year on the first day of school - how great it would be to have the Recess line to do an album! I continue to do that with my son too. My IL's also have a farm so I have a lot of pictures of my boys feeding the sheep and cows.

Ms. Cheryl said...

I am so into the Report Card collection. I wish we had digital cameras back then, you know, when us 50+ girls were in school. It brings back fun memories, learning to hold a pencil, coloring, recess, young friends and walking to school, The ABC's written across the top of the blackboard and art was such a big part of school too. Thanks so much for the possibility to win this wonderful set of papers, ms.cheryl

Deborah said...

oh wow!! so cute. Love them both, but Farm Fresh just a tad more.

Cassi said...

i love both lines. report card brings back my inner student. while farm fresh reminds me that you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country outta the girl :). would love to win, thanks for the chance cath!

jen said...

Those are both such dee-lish lines! I think the idea of escaping to simpler times is SO appealing!

Rebecca said...

If I had to choose one manufacturer to use in all my papercrafting for the rest of my life I would choose October Afternoon. There is something about the mix of vintage and graphic that is so amazing and I agree the colors are divine. And these two new lines are no different. Thanks for the chance to win.

Rebecca Keppel

Aphra said...

They are every bit as delicious as the rest of the October Afternoon papers that I've devoured the past couple of years. That is the only section in my paper storage that stays empty. Can't keep it in stock. Sure would love it if you could help me out with that. :)

Lori Y. said...

These collections are great! October Afternoon NEVER disappoints. thanks for the chance to win.
