Welcome to the Christmas Cheer Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Christmas Cheer Blog Hop!
If your just starting out on the hop make sure you go back and start on Paulas blog More than Favors.
I want to Thank Paula and Momo for asking to be part of this hop...Such an Honor. I truly love those gals!
So the theme of this hop is CHRISTMAS which is ONE day away! Not that you needed reminding.
My project today is a cute and easy paper and button tree! Along with a cute,darling,ornament that my dear sweet  friend Sarah made me.

So all that is needed is a styrofoam cone, pins or sticky tape, glue dots, buttons, a pencil, and lots of 1x3 inch strips. I inked the edges to give it more of a rustic look. And rolled the ends of the paper on a pencil to get the ends to flip out. Over all, I'm very happy with the outcome.

Think about how cute this would look with the strips embossed with a cuttlebug, or maybe stamped with your favorite sentiment.

Im also putting up a really sweet card made with Scrappy Moms new stamp set Designers Choice. Be sure to stop by there blog as there having a real fun contest.

Todays blog candy is Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Parts and More.
To Qualify all you need to do is leave a comment, become a follower, and leave a way for me to reach you if you win. Random.Org will choose the winner on Monday.
Happy Holidays Friends.

Up next is my super great friend, Sarah at PinkCricut, Im sure your just gonna love her project.

Be sure to check out all the fab ladies projects on the hop. Here is the list. Happy Hopping.

Scrappy Moms "Designer's Choice" Sneak Peek #2

Hello Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for Christmas yet? I just finished up all my Christmas shopping. And every year I say I'm gonna start early, and never do. Yes I am a last minute kinda gal.

Here is my Sneak Peek #2 for Scrappy Moms Stamps newest release "Designers Choice".

And don't forget about the cute and fun give away that Melanie and Tammy are doing in honor of this cute new stamp set.
This is a very special set that was created by the Design Team members. We submitted sentiments that we love and thought that you would enjoy using in your papercrafting!
Mel and Tammy thought it would be fun to have a little contest for all of you WONDERFUL followers! They are challenging you to guess which Design Team member submitted which sentiment...think you can do it? Email your guesses to us a Each of the members have at least one sentiment.

For this card I used my Imagine...We all know hou much I love that machine. I used 3 Birds on Parade and Life is a Beach for the treasure chest. Cricut Imagine cartridge Better Together for the pattern on the bird. It was Momo's idea to add the cute bling (treasure) to the chest. Im thankful for her suggestion cause it really made this card pop! I embossed the background paper with the Cuttlebug folder Coolio.

This card somehow got lost during the last sneak peek for Scrappy Moms Simple Sentiments. Better late then never right?
Cartridges used were Nifty Fifties and Shall we Dance. Both of these cards were made while skyping with Momo and Paula from More than Favors. So I'm giving them credit for helping me when I had crafters block.

So don't forget to head over Scrappy Moms Blog to see other cute projects used with the new stamp set, and email them with your guesses on which dt member came up with which sentiment. Im still trying to figure this out :)

Have a great day!
