Thankfulness – Creative Stampers Blog Hop

It’s time again for our monthly blog hop! Once a month the entire Creative Stampers team will feature cards related to a specific theme.

  • We will each share a full “alternative” project (related to our PDF project) as part of our “blog hop.”
  • We will each show a sneak peek photo about the project we contributed to the PDF Bundle. We can’t show the whole thing though!
  • And we will each make the project PDF available to you – for free or a fee. (How you get it is up to you!) This PDF is chock full of goodness.

This month our theme is Thankfulness. Our team is here to help you experience gratitude with a number of colorful projects.

For my two projects this month I decided to focus on leaves. Gorgeous Leaves!
