Sotm blog hop 2012

Welcome to a new month and new year and a new sotm blog hop.

You should be coming from Heather's blog. Next on the list is Judy's blog

I made this card during christmas, so that it why its christmas themed. But, hey, since you still have all the christmas stuff, why don't work ahead and get cards done now. This is what I am going to try to do, but doubt it will happen. I am a procrastinator. What I could get today, I will probably do in two weeks. Cause lets face it, tomarrow is just too soon. Except when it comes to putting in my new order to CTMH. Then tomarrow is not soon enough.

Next on the list is Judy's blog Enjoy.

Rock the Block part 2

I am back with more ideas from the Rock the Block special.
The first picture is a shaker box ornament. I cut the block in half so you can get two ornaments from one block. Stamped the image and placed it in the back.
Merry Christmas is stamped on the acetate with Staz-on. I added microbeads and added a frame with skinny piece of cardstock.

The second picture is a card. I stamped the large corner piece (my favorite stamp from this set) and cut it into random rectangles.

Rock the block bloghop

Welcome to this months special blog hop. Starting now till the end of Jan you get get this special Rock the Block. You should be arriving from Heather Schmuckal Next on this hop is Kristine Ponte

The first one shown was an idea since I had since I first heard about this special. These blocks are hollow so you can cut a side off and make a shadow box. A very tiny shadow box. I hope you can see in the first photo, I have Presents in the background. The tree is on the first level.

The second idea was a little photo holder. Yes, that picture in the holder is me when I was younger. I used the foundry pin clips for the photo holder. It is behind the holly leaves. I actually cut those holly leaves by hand because I was without my cricut. It's back now. Woohoo. I used the love stamp from the stamp set. This stamp set is only available during this special. The blocks will be in the new idea book coming out Feb.
I love this stamp set. I used it p. The current sotm card, so pop back one post to check it out. More artwork will being coming. I have some great ideas.
