There is something so warm and cozy about fall, with the plaids, the colored leaves, the textured fabrics. With the Blog Hop falling within Thanksgiving weekend here in The States, I thought this would be a good time to have one last hurrah with your favorite autumnal products. There are so many things to love here. The large script word in gold. The copper toned pumpkins. The layers of leaves in the swag. The orange hues in the plaid. Gather all of this inspiration together and come up with your very own autumn creation that celebrates the end of the season!



-Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on November 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be “Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge”.

-Only one entry per person please.

-Customers & participants alike can peruse all of the links and absorb all of the amazing inspiration that will be shared!

-After you have made your way through the list, simply return to our forum and participate in all of the fun!

-You can chit chat with everyone in the Blog Hop forum! Take this time to praise your peers efforts, discuss anything new you might have learned and which projects really offered something unique!

-The three random blogger participant winners will be announced Saturday morning on our forum and highlighted here on my blog!

-Create a project while you are here, using the new inspiration you have gathered from the Blog Hop. You can post your projects in the gallery, even if you do not have a blog! We are looking forward to all the fun today!  Thank you for joining us!




Peggysue created this gorgeous shaker tag. The watercoloring she did on the pumpkin an leaves is really beautiful, the inconsistencies on the pumpkin especially give the tag an artistic touch. She really brought out the colors in the ribbon with her selections of sequins and overall color scheme.


Maura put together this beauty using one of my favorite sentiments ever. The way she layered the leaf die-cuts is a great example of using just a few simple tools to create a showstopper. I especially like the watercolor and splatter technique she used on the base of the leaves.


Sentimentally Sue focused on the word “blessed” from the inspiration photo as the central focal point for her card. The seam binding paired with the autumnal plain paper make this card cozy and definitely makes you think Thanksgiving.

Congratulations to the winners! Please send a note to customer service and let them know the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone who played along, enjoy the remainder of your holiday weekend!

    I was looking also, but no luck. However, it does say on this post about chit chat with everyone on the Forum. Perhaps it’s up to us to start the thread???

    I’m sorry this is a late comment. But since I don’t know where else to leave a comment, I thought I’d leave it here. I LOVE Papertrey and would like to participate in the non-blog forums. From the beginning and several attempts afterwards, I’ve never had any success, connecting to the forum. I wish I knew what to do. I even tried working with Rick, to no avail. Plus, I bought a new computer, hoping that would help. I’m a lost pup. But I still buy the products and create all the time. Including 35 Christmas cards this year. Thanks!!
