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.

#241 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 3

***Please scroll down to next post to continue the Calendar Blog Hop***

Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop DAY 3 hosted by Sylvia Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot!  This hop is all about making 12 different Christmas gifts 12 days in a row and the last day we will be posting is on December 6th.

For today's gift, I thought I'd make a cute gift box to hold some jewelry that I will be purchasing for my Aunt Rosemary, she is addicted to jewelry just like me :)  I made this box using the Life's A Party Cricut cartridge for the box, BTW-there's a lot of great boxes and party favors on that cart! I got the snowflake from the Winter Lace Seasonal Cricut cart that came out last year, I cut it out 3 times and poured Martha Stewart tinsel glitter on top of all 3. I placed a pop dot under all of them for some dimension and added a large piece of blue bling! For the label I hand cut it and stamped the To/From sentiment using Crafty Sprouts "HAVE A COOL YULE" stamp set and inked it up with blue chalk ink. For a final touch I added white lace to the bottom of the box to make it look more fancy!

Here's some major dimension, love it!

BLOG CANDY!! In honor of me creating 12 projects 12 days in a row, I will be celebrating by giving away ONE $10 gift certificate to one of my favorite online stores......  PEACHY KEEN STAMPS!!! All you have to do is leave me a comment on all 12 of my 12 Days of Christmas post and be a follower. The last day will be on December 6th. I will announce a random winner on Wed. 12/7 good luck!
