365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#6 El Dia De Reyes Blog Hop Card


Hello everyone and welcome to El Dia De Reyes Blog Hop hosted by Gaby. If you are here from Dorcas 4 Crafty Angels then you are in the right spot. If you just started and would like to start at the beginning please go straight to Gaby's blog at http://www.gabycreates.com/. I was so honored when Gaby asked me to join in on this very exciting hop eventhough I don't actually celebrate this holiday I have heard of it and it's a tradition celebrated around the world for years and years. If you would like more info on the meaning behind the celebration please click HERE.

When Gaby explained to us all about El Dia De Reyes she included this paragraph and from this paragraph I was inspired to make my card:

The children's celebration of receiving presents is not until January 6th, "el día de Reyes", the day of the Kings, or the Wise Men Day. It is the Magi who brought the presents to the Baby Jesus, thus, they bring the toys to the boys and girls who have been good. The children place their shoes by the window, so the Magi place the present in the shoe. It the present is bigger than the shoe, it will be placed next to it. Many children, get a new pair of shoes for a present.

Now onto my project:

Since I was inspired by the paragraph above I decided to make a shoe card with a present in it! The shoe was cut from the Rock Princess cartirdge and the present is from Sweet Treats cartridge. I embossed the present with my Cuttlebug, inked it up and added Stickles. I also inked around the edges of the shoe especially on the bottom of the shoe to make it look worn.  I stamped the sentiment and attached it to a border from a MS border punch and for a final touch I added a large black button to the shoe. If you scroll down to my post #4 I made another project with the negative piece from the shoe! I am so proud of myself for recyling LOL!

For my Blog candy I am giving away a set of Prima Flowers I just love those pretty vibrant colors! All you have to do is be a follower and  just make sure you leave me a comment! I will post the winner on Sunday or Monday.
Don't forget to leave comments on all of the blogs for 6 chances at 6 different Grand Prize Giveaways! Also make sure to email Gaby  scrapabookaholic@hotmail.com with a list or all of the WORDS you collect on the hop, it should create a full sentence. Also, we are celebrating Gaby's daughter's birthday today Happy Birthday Yajaira!! I hope you have the best birthday ever!

P.S. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for my Hello Kitty Blog Hop! Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
