CWC Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to From The Hills and the CookingWithCricut.com Holiday Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Gaby at Gaby Creates, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning. Go HERE.

With the holidays fast approaching we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog. There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be some nice PRIZES with a few different ways to win at CookingWithCricut.com!

The card I made today features my favorite word of the season, "Joy". The ornament was cut at 3 inches from Winter Frolic. I used gold Stickles on the top for the hanger! I wanted the ornament to look like it was hanging so I put some string onto the card.

The green paper I used was textured, but I wanted something else added to it. So I used Shimmer Spritz and Pop Dots to make the letters stand out. The blue paper in the background is from Paper Source. I had the opportunity to visit one of their stores in Chicago this fall and thought this would be perfect for Christmas projects.






I have two things I will be giving away this weekend. First is the Christmas Geese Cutting File or Digi File from ScrapbookEden.com. Also up for grabs is a Calendar Kit that contains 999 pieces. If you are ambitious, maybe you can make it a Christmas gift...or you can make it month by month!

All you have to do to win one of these prizes is leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you. For a second chance to win, check out my post from yesterday and leave a comment there!

Now it's your turn! Let’s see your wonderful holiday projects. Be sure to try and include a Cricut or other die cut machine on your project and link it up at CookingWithCricut.com. Next stop...Cathie's blog, Creative Cutter. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to head back to CookingWithCricut.com and get entered to win!
