Christmas Blog Hop: December 4 & 5

Today is Saturday December 4, 2010 and is our Christmas Blog Hop two day event...if you just found us hop on over to Josyhttp://josyscraftcorner.blogspot.com/ to start from the beginning.



You should of have arrived at my blog from shawneestamper http://www.paperfrolic.blogspot.com/



I have been wanting to make a count down calendar for christmas and decide to cut out my snowman shape from the new gingerbread solution cartridge. My christmas decorations are snowmans and snowflakes.

I cut out my snowman at 16 1/2 ". I use my 12x24 mat and purchase from Hobby Lobby their 12x24 cardstock paper. I cut out the numbers fromt the Design Calenders Cartridge at 1 1/4". I also glitter the snowman hat, face, scarf from Martha Stewart glitter and spray some Elmers glue on top so the glitter get sealed. I cut out christmas tree from glitter paper at 1 1/2" and added 3/4" number 25 on it. The title December is cut out 4" from glitter paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget tomorrow for our second project. I hope you enjoy the blog hop...now head on over to Bobbi's Hobbieshttp://bobbishobbies.blogspot.com/

I will be giving away some blog candy and it will be posted on tomorrow (second day) project...so don't forget to sign up if you would like to follow me or already a follower leave a comment on both post. I will pick a winner on Friday December 10.
