Today, the Journey Crew shares what we are thankful for as we create two Thanksgiving projects. Craft with us using items from the Journey Holidays Trends Mini Catalog.
At the Journey Station we went around and asked each other. A few responses from the Journey Crew:
My sons / My kids / My grandkids
Having a passion in my life (my work) / The chance to do what I love
Providing a great life for my family
The beautiful, creative people I get to work with
For our Coaches who work so hard for us
You can be thankful for really anything in your life. Share yours with us in the comments below. As you do so, it may inspire you to create a card to thank someone special in your life. It may inspire a technique.
Let’s share our thanks with paper crafts!
If you love coloring, this is a fun one. Create this Give Thanks card with Liquid Color! Our Liquid Colors are dye-based and easily blend-able to create the perfect color tone for your images.

Give this colorful image a simple background with a pattern from the Fall Fest Prints. Add your bow of Pumpkin Patch Ribbon and a few other embellishments to complete the project.
