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.

#249 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop DAY 11/ Jack Skellington Cocoa Mug

***Please Scroll down for DAY 10***

Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog HopDAY 11 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 my 11th project I made a gift for a guy. I got the cocoa mug SVG and the Santa hat SVG from Lettering Delights. I made my own SVG file for the Jack Skellington cut by using this .gif image. I cut the files using my SCAL 2 along with my old Cricut Expression. I embossed only the front of the mug with my Cuttlebug using Duff's texture tiles (scroll down for more info!) I also inked up the snowflakes with white chalk ink.

Here's the inside, this SVG already had a spot to place the hot cocoa, I just added a glue dot underneath the cocoa to keep it in place. 

Here's the back of the mug, for both sentiments I used CRAFTY SPROUTS STAMPS "Have A Cool Yule" right now she is having a sale all week long, all stamp sets including new releases are only $12.50 with FREE shipping!!!! Great deal, be sure to check them all out HERE! I love them they stamp so perfectly and the are the perfect size for all your projects!

Here's what the side looks like, I added pop dots under Jack Skellington, and also added a pop dot to close the mug together.

I recently figured out that "Duff's texture Tiles" work in the Cuttlebug!! I bought these at Michael's on clearance for $3 and you get 2 embossing folders and they emboss pretty good, not as good as Cuttlebug or Sizzix but pretty good as you can see in my project above! I actually did the de-bossed side instead of the embossed side make sense?

Here's the Cuttlebug recipe for the Texture Tiles, (I was too lazy to type it lol!) BTW the rubber mat I used was from Spellbinders embossing mat from Joann's or Michaels!

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!
