SPS November Blog Hop

Welcome to Pumpkin Spice November blog hop!
If you've come here from the  Pumpkin Spice Store Blog, then you're on the right track! 

Wow, can you believe it's November already?  Just feels like yesterday that this design team was formed :)  We're very happy that you are joining us again this month for another hop!  Today the Pumpkin Spice DT is kicking off November with a blog hop  We're featuring Crate Paper's line of products as well as sneak peeking the wonderful creations that June created for her Kit of the Month.  Let's get started!


First up, a sneak peak of one of June's Kit of the Month creations! She has put together a wonderful collection of supplies using MME's Season's Greetings line.  I love all the papers and embellishments in this line!



If you want to see the entire thing, head over to the Pumpkin Spice Store to check out June's kit as well as explore the various other goodies that the shop has to offer.

For today's blog hop creations, I put together two Christmas cards using papers from the Crate Paper Peppermint 6x6 Paper Pad.  I like that though this is a holiday-themed pad, I could use a lot of these patterns on non-holiday cards.  Don't ya just love versatility?  I also used a lot of other products from the Shop Pumpkin Spice Store so make sure to check out my supplies list :)

And of course, being the generous person that she is, Denine is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate on the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog!  To be eligible for the prize, please make sure to comment on all the DT's hop posts.  We would also love it if you followed the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog and also followed us on Facebook HERE.  You get all the latest news about weekend specials and also some inspiration to help you get your creative juices flowing :)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please continue on with the hop to Carissa's always gorgeous blog!
