HOPPING FOR THRIFTY GIFTS WITH THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE!!


Welcome to The Stamping Boutique’s
"Thrifty Christmas-Making Handmade Gifts" Blog Hop!!

We are very excited about the holidays and know for many money is tight this year, but that doesn’t mean you cannot give great gifts! Our Elves, oh I mean design team have been busy in their workshops coming up with some fabulous projects to help you with those last minute gift ideas. What better way to show you than to have a
BLOG HOP!!!

You won’t want to miss this hop and because we know you are all busy getting all the preparations done for the holidays, this hop will run all weekend. The hop starts today, Friday
December 9th @ 12:01 am (CST) and runs until Sunday December 11th @ 11:59 pm (CST).

If you have hopped over from Sue's blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Christy’s blog and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from The Stamping Boutique store.  Be sure to visit all the design’s blogs and leave a comment (we will be checking).  Each designer will be giving away (1) FREE image from our store to one random commenter.

Once you have finished the hop, make sure to leave a comment on The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate for our store.  Remember to be eligible for all prizes, YOU MUST COMMENT ON EACH STOP ALONG THE WAY!

Your next stop will be Julia's blog, enjoy!!

For my project, I have created a 2012 Calendar using a number of different images from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE SHOP.  I am showcasing some, but not all the months.  I have added better pictures since I am now at home and have my better lighting.  I sure hope you like it, I had a great time creating it and Tracey has such an AMAZING variety of images, it was fun and easy to create:)











All images from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE are colored with Copics and Fiskars glitter gel pens, they are cut with Nesties, Nellies and Lifestyle Crafts dies.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I have added a number of embellies and papers from Kaisercraft, My Mind's Eye, Prima, Echo Park, Offray, Jolee's Boutique, American Crafts, Petaloo and Martha Stewart.
