5 Months Till Christmas Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is the 25th of the month, which means we are counting down till Christmas. There are now 5 months until Santa visits. I have organized all my holiday cards in a Christmas storage box, so when November/December rolls around I will be be ready to address the envelopes and deliver. It should be a Happy Holiday!


Here are my Christmas projects...

~ Die Cut ~
I decided to start some holiday cards for my students. These are 3x3 minis. Each card is simple (but cute) since 9 - 10 years old are not extremely aware of the time it takes to create handmade crafts. Each card is stamped on the inside...Season's Greetings.
Materials:
white, brown, and red card stock
K&Company paper ~ Secret Santa pad
Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge ~ reindeer (p. 126)
Gingerbread Cricut cartridge ~ candy cane

~ Digi/Stamp ~
I liked the triple time stamp technique so much I tried again with snowflakes. These are also 3x3 minis. 
  Materials:
white cardstock
K&Company paper ~ Secret Santa pad
Martha Stewart snowflake stamps
blue ink pads
blue gems

Christmas Goodies:
What is a blog hop without a special treat? I have a surprise gift for one lucky person. Be sure to include your blog name and e-mail address. The winner will be announced Wednesday, August 1st

Here is this month's line-up:

Stay Creative,
