Blog Hop with Arnold Grummer

Arnold Grummer Blog Hop Banner

Have you ever made paper? We’d love to hear about your experiences if you have! At Stampendous, we’ve been making handmade paper for decades, and we even used to distribute the wonderful Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking Kit to our retail stores. We reconnected with this great company at the Creativation show this year. They proposed a fun blog hop! We sent Stampendous products to their team, and they provided papermaking kits to ours.

For the next two weeks, we’ve got some great projects to share with you as the teams play with the wonderful products we’ve exchanged.

Today, check out this beautiful creation by Becky Conley. Click on her name, or the picture to learn more about how she made it!
