Kraftie Kre8ations Fall Blog Hop

    Fall is such a beautiful time of the year, it’s when the leaves start changing colors and everything around us is beautiful. It is also the season of Thanksgiving, which reminds us to take a moment to reflect on all the things we are most thankful for.
     We were asked to create a project using at least four of the five fall colors given.  It also needed to be either fall related or have something to do with being thankful.
    I created a gift bag out of four tags using the colors and fall stamps.  The larger leaves and pumpkins are a Stampin' Up set Paisley Prints.  The smaller items I stamped with Denami's Autumn Set that I then colored with a blender pen and my stamp pads.  I scored it and attached with red line tape.  To make the handle I just tied a length of ribbon in each of the opposing tag wholes.  Really simple to do. 
   To give you an idea of how big it is I placed a bottle of glimmer mist in the bag.  As you can see it just barely peaks out the top, and it does wiggle side to side.  I think if you were going to a swap or white elephant scrapbook event it would be the perfect gift. 
     Now make sure you head on over to the Kraftie Kre8ations blog to link up your creation using the fall palette. KK8 is also giving away a prize during the hop. One lucky hopper will receive a gift.  All you have to do is:

  1. Visit each blog
  2. Leave each one a comment
  3. Follow the KK8 blog
That's it! I heard tell that some blogs in the hop are even offering prizes beyond what Kraftie Kre8ations is!  Oh, and look up the group on facebook too as we have games and swaps on there regularly.  Next,  make sure to visit Becki
