I am a member of the CutCardstock design team, so some of the projects I feature are created to showcase their products.  I both receive and purchase products from their shop for this purpose.  I am also a member of the A Blog Named Hero Facebook Team.  My projects for this team feature products from Hero Arts and I both purchase and receive products as part of the team.  As a blog contributor for CreatForLess, I am compensated for my time and ideas.  All opinions are my own and I only recommend products I use and enjoy.
