Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - December 2013


Thank you so much for joining us for the December Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  This month our projects focus on quick and easy gift ideas for the holidays. As we enter the month of December, we find that the Christmas holidays are fast approaching. From decorating our homes to holiday baking, we realize that shopping days are running low. That's why we want to share quick and easy gift ideas that anyone can create in time for that special someone! 

As you hop along, you will see that many of our design team members are giving away some great blog candy this month. Leave a comment for each project and you will automatically be entered in to win!  Winners will be announced Monday, December 16th on our individual blogs, so don't forget to leave us those comments! We love to hear from our readers!

You should have just left stop number 2 - DJ's Stampin' Place on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad  blog hop. 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.

My project this month uses the awesome Flip Card Thinlit dies.  Here it is closed.  I've seen this santa coat done by various crafters the last couple of years.  I think it's brilliant.  The belt helps keep the card closed.
 Once you slip the belt off and open the inside, here is what it looks like.
 I made the card a little longer to have a little flap to hold a gift card.  What's better than something practical, like a gift card, for Christmas, right?

Open a little more, the label flips to the other side.
This was actually a fun and easy project.  Just perfect for your last minute gifting!  Remember to leave me a comment here for a chance to win some blog candy.  This is a first on this blog, so you don't want to miss it!  I'll call it a "Surprise Grab Bag".  I promise it's be really super yummy!  Tell your friends to come and check out this project.  At the same time, might as well increase your chances to win other candies by leaving comments on each one of these wonderful crafter's blog.  Winners will be announced on Monday, December 16th.  Be sure to check back here on Monday!

Your next stop is with Cynthia.
