Blogging Friends December Blog Hop

Blogging Friends December Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Blogging Friends Blog Hop".

Who are the "Blogging Friends"? We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who have never met before. Well, actually, we still haven't met yet (in person)... But through our common bond of Stampin' Up! and a shared love of paper crafting, we have created a fun new blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created.

Each month we'll have a different theme: this month it's creating Christmas/Hannukah/New Year items. We are SO very excited to have a special guest join our blog hop this month!

Eek it's December already! I know I say it each month but wow where does the time go? Certainly flies right on by especially when you are having fun being creative. I have two Christmas cards to show you today. We made these at our team meeting this past week and we had a blast making them.

This first card has no stamping on it. Shocking but you'll get an arm workout while making it from the Big Shot. Ha. Nothing like multitasking while being crafty. The Swirly Scribble creates a wreath in place of the "O".

This next card has very little stamping but again getting much use from the Big Shot. Get your paper snips ready because the gingerbread house was cut from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.

In case you've never 'done' a blog hop before, its really easy! At the bottom of this post, you'll see another image similar to the one above, and when you click on it, you'll be taken directly to the next blog in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you'll hop through all the participating blogs, back to where you started - and you'll see all the amazing projects and maybe inspire you too! If you'd prefer to hop about at your leisure, you can click on the individual links for each blog. Happy Hopping!

We'd love if you would leave us some comments (aka - Blog Love) to let us know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by today.
