Crafty Sentiments Blog Hop



We are having a blog hop at Crafty Sentiments to celebrate the release of four new Winter stamps, as well as several new digital paper designs.  The hop starts today and ends Saturday, October 23.  One lucky winner will win two of the newly-released stamps.  Head over to the challenge blog to read about the details and to start the hop.

For this project, I decorated a small gift box I recycled from a local cupcake bakery.  I used the new "Amy with Letter" image from Crafty Sentiments.  I decorated the top and each side of the box with a white panel that was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the large snowflake and Martha Stewart punches for the smaller snowflakes.  I completed the box by adding a sentiment and a bow on the top.

This is a four-panel sign I made that can be placed on a table or mantle during the holiday season.  The pendant shapes and letters were cut with Accucut dies.  The images used are "Mike" and "Christmas Amy" from Crafty Sentiments.  To complete the decoration I added a few snowflakes and a snowflake border. 

Your next stop on the hop is Jac.
