Winter/Christmas Themed Blog Hop

Winter/Christmas Themed Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Winter/Christmas Themed Blog Hop celebrating our favorite time of the year. This Blog Hop is hosted by Paulette, from Around the Bock with Scrapalette. You can start at the beginning of the hop at

My project for the hop is a two page layout using the new CM Cricut cartridge, 'Tis the Season and the CM Christmas paper line, Noel.  I love, love this cart and I am just as crazy about the new paper line by CM.  It is just so pretty and it has lots of gold foil accents throughout the pack.  The paper is doublesided and one side has gold foil highlights. There is a paper ribbon pack, sticker sheet that includes a pretty alphabet and a gorgeous album to match.  I did use some Core'dinations gold paper in addition to the pack for the cuts.  All cuts are at 3 inches with the exception of the tree which is cut at 6 inches.

Some blog candy:  Since I love this paper pack sooooo much and since this is such a special blog hop, I have decided to give away one of these paper packs to one of our visitors.  Please leave a comment or follow my blog and I'll let the random generator pick a winner.  Deadline for comments will be Sunday night at 11:59 CST.

If you would like to order the paper pack or CM cart, feel free to send me an email, comment or message.  I will be sure to give you a special deal!

Thanks for hopping by, your next stop is Madylyn
