Welcome to the "Christmas" Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature everything wonderful about Christmas!! 

You'll  find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- From decorations to gift ideas and more, we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!! This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to catch both days for maximum ideas (at the bottom of this post you'll find all the hoppers or please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Lynda's blog!!)

We can guarantee LOTS of SPARKLE and SHINE for this Ho-ho-holiday event... So let's get hopping!!  If you've hopped over from Lynda's Blog then you are in the right place!!

For the hop today, I've created some layouts and a few cards using the Believe Paper Pack:

In the above layout I stamped my title as well as my Santa and colored him in. The Stars are covered chipboard. I added embellishments from the Olive Mini Medley including the metal frame around the present.

This is layout I used some more stamping but on the holly leaves I used a rock-n-roll technique to get part of the stamp a darker color to create a shaded look. Click on the image to zoom in.

With the Believe Stickease and ONE sheet of 12x12 Believe B&T Paper (plus your card bases) I created these 16 cards. Click here for the cutting guide.
