ssink - Christmas fun!

Merry Christmas stamping friends! Can you believe we're just 2 weeks away from Christmas?! Say it ain't so!! ;) Are you done with everything on your list yet? We have had a super busy 10 days to start out December (but I am pretty sure I remember saying last year I didn't want to be so busy...ha!) So, with all the busy-ness that means not a lot of stamping. SAD!! I'm sure once January comes around I'll be back in business with lots of fun things to share as coming soon is the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration!

But, today I do have a little something to share with you! It's the SSINK monthly blog hop and for our hop today it's ANYTHING CHRISTMAS! Thankfully I haven't shared the few Christmas projects I have had the time to work on, so yay ~ now is the PERFECT time!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 8 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Tonya at Stamp with Tonya. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

First up is a card I created for last month's card making night. I was inspired by something that caught my eye in the Holiday Catalog.

Because I was using this card at an event, I had to make things a little simpler so my supplies would stretch a little further...we had 22 stampers last month! Woo hoo ~ that's what I love to see! Love that cute star paperclip on the original design, but didn't have enough of those for all my guests!

Stamp Sets
Festival of Trees
Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Whisper White, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Trim the Tree DSP Stack
SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Frosted Sequins, Linen Thread
Bitty Star Punch, Paper Snips

Another little project I have to share with you today is not one I came up with on my own. I found this cute Santa Fry Box on Pinterest and fell in love! I hadn't used the Fry Box Die yet, so I knew this was the perfect project to break it in. I created these for a 3D Christmas-themed swap at my last team meeting. Aren't they just so cute? The white part on the front uses the Labels Framelits Die and the belt buckle is punched out of Silver Glimmer with the Petite Label Punch.

Add a little baggie of White Chocolate Peppermint M & M's and tie a bow! 
Such a cute little gift to give to someone. for hopping along for some Christmas fun. Next up is Kim! Head on over to see what she has to share with us!

The Santa box is just to cute. Is the white at the top made using the top note die? Like your version of the catalog card better.
