Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am so happy to be included in the Cricut Circle Blog Hop "Christmas with a Twist" with some the most talented people in the craft world! The twist is that you can't use Santa or snowmen! You know how hard it is to do a whole mini-book for Christmas without them?!!



My granddaughter wants this book!!

I made this stocking mini-book using my Expression and cereal boxes! The cartridges used were Christmas Cheer, Christmas Noel, PDDU and JOTS. I will add the gypsy file as soon as I clean it up! If you need it before I get it posted, please email me!

If you hopped here from the very talented Lori at Scrappinmystressaway then you're in the right place!! When you are finished here, hop on over to the very crafty Mrs. Green's blog at greengirlscraps Be sure to hop along to all of the blogs as there is some blog candy in it for you! AND you can get some great ideas to create your own holiday goodies!!!

Now, onto the real reason you stopped by!! I have some blog candy for you! The winner will be chosen by random.org on Wednesday, the 17th at noon! If I get more than 100 followers I will choose another winner with a surprise giveaway! The winner will receive this Circle Border Punch from Fiskars and a Beaded bookmark! When you win you can tell me the colors you want and if you want it sized for a paperback book or hardbound book! Or a small lanyard size for your gypsy pen! Your choice of colors!


Here's how to win:

1) Please leave me a comment and be sure to leave information where you can be reached if you win!
2) Become a follower if you aren't already!
3) For an extra chance, post it on your blog and add another post telling me you did!

Thanks for stopping by, now head over to Mrs. Greens! I hope you find something that inspires you and gets you in the Christmas spirit!! I wouldn't dare mention how many more days mostly because I don't want to think about it myself! Stop by next week, I'll show you the Advent Christmas tree I make for my grandkids for their rooms! Its a little time consuming but now that I have Designers Calendar it is so much easier!! They are already asking how much longer til they get it!! They are 5 and 6 now, and they love them!

The stocking mini is sweet!!! I have to eat more cereal so I can try one!!!

Wonderful shape book! I think using cereal boxes is a terrific idea, it is a great way to reuse materials (save the environment!) and cost efficient! And your designs are so festive! TFS

I knew I was saving cereal boxes for something. Now I know what I'm going to make.
