December 2011 Blog Hop

By December 26, 2011Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the December Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…


Since the blog hop will be taking place the day after Christmas, we thought we would hold to our traditional "Holiday Leftovers Challenge".  Of course we aren't referring to food, but all of the wrapping paper, bows, ribbon, tags, canceled postage from holiday cards you have received, photos from holiday cards and anything else you might have laying around after the holiday preparations have ended.  Your challenge is to use some type of leftover materials to create a project.  And if you really want to challenge yourself even further, you can try to create a non-holiday card from your leftovers.  We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This new type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (December 26th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a FREE Papertrey Ink stamp set of their choice.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!



Joyce M. created this card from a handmade gift tag a friend attached to a gift for her.  It is the perfect way to reuse those beautiful handmade touches that you just don't have the heart to throw away.  I love the double layers of Edgers #2 die-cut borders.

MaryRose used a die-cut chipboard reindeer tag that was tied to a pair of pajamas that she received as a gift for Christmas this year.  She grounded the reindeer by adding Background Basics: Woodgrain and dotted lines from Faux Ribbon.  It has the perfect mix of modern & rustic styles.

Linda Monroe cut up a gift bag from Hollister to use as a background for her project.  I like this take on a different kind of "bookprint".  She die cut several buttons using the Buttoned Up #2 die and attached them with various colors of twine.  I love the color scheme of this card and all the texture that the buttons add.

Congratulations to all three of the randomly selected winners!  Please be sure to contact customer service with your FREE stamp set selection as well as your shipping information!  Thank you to everyone who participated!  We hope this holiday season has been full of many happy memories for you and your families!
