Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide Blog Hop

Oh boy....I am so excited about this Holiday From the Heart Gift Guide ...there are so many beautiful new products just for the holidays.  There is even an incentive to order all of your favorites...Choose a festive, new product free this holiday season with your qualifying order! When you place an order of $100 or more (retail price) between October 15 and December 31 from the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide and/or the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book, you qualify for one free star item from the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide. You'll love the sparkle, the ease, and the savings! Receive one free "star" item for each $100 in your order.

There are more that 20 of us Close to My Heart consultants that are taking part in this hop show so off the new products.  So grab some coffee and hop along.  If you came here from Michelle Johns's Blog you are on the right track.

Here is what I made using some of the new products...

I fell in love with the Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack...It is perfect for the holidays, but is also great for non holiday use too as I have shown with my Happy Birthday Card.   

The Santa was stamped with black archival ink and colored with our alcohol ink markers.  For the hat I stamped with ruby ink and cut it out and glued to the black hat.

I used the following products:

X7176B Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack
Z1860 Sparkle & Shine Assortment
C1567 Santa Claus Stamp Set
B1438 Banner Wishes Stamp Set

Now hop on over to Lisa Sargent's Blog and see her amazing artwork!!
