I think Fall is my favorite season. I mean you have the crisp cool air, beautiful rich colors through the trees and one of my favorite holidays - Thanksgiving. Though we should be thankful every day for our family, friends and all things that have been provided to us, this time of year really seems to bring it front and center. Not only is it a time of thanksgiving, it is also a time of giving. As you reflect on what you are thankful for this season, how about giving to those in need.
I am so glad you are hopping with us today for Deedee's Digis Thankful Thoughts Blog Hop. Deedee's design team has some wonderful projects to share with you so be sure you visit each stop along the way. You are sure to be inspired! If you just came from Melissa's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop at Crafting with Deedee's Digis, start there by clicking here. Deedee has a special blog hop only free digi for you!
Now, onto my project. I always browse the $1 aisle/bins at Michaels looking for items I can alter/revamp/redo. I hit it a few weeks ago when everything was 60% off in that aisle! Among some of the items I got were a few 5x7 journals (these weren't on sale but were less than $2 ea).
I used SU paper (Bella Rose) and a verse from Deedee's Digis Words of Thanksgiving set. I cut the tags with my Cricut and added the red satin ribbon. Now check out the flowers! The flowers were made using 4 prima flowers each. I found the tutorial here to make them. One tip, use tacky glue that will hold quickly or it will take forever. The flowers I used were pink but I sponged them with Rose Red ink. This was a quick and easy project that would make a great gift.
Here's how the hop works:
To participate, visit each of the participating designers' blogs to see a fun project using one of Deedee's Digis, and leave a comment on their post for a chance to win a free digi of your choice from the store!
