Cardz TV Design Team Christmas Blog Hop!!!!


Welcome to  Cardz TV Stamps Christmas Blog hop!!! Wow and I have to say, everyone is in for a treat.  First things first, I just want to say,  THANKS MARY  for putting on such a wonderful hop!! If you were just stopping by to visit and would like to join us on this Christmas hop, just click here, to start at the beginning! If you came from lovely Kate's blog then you are at the right place.  There are giveaways through out the hop, starting at Cardz TV, Mary will be giving away the Gingerbread Cartridge and the Holly Jolly Stamp set. Lynn has also sponsored the hop and will be giving away an adorable North Pole Collection paper kit from Crate Paper! To be eligible for Cardz TV giveaways you must comment on each of the Design Team members blogs.

Now onto my project, I am featuring  altered mini composition books. These are wonderful and inexpensive Christmas gifts! They are great for grocery list, notes, address books and the list goes on....

I just want to tell you a little bit about my projects:


First up Miss Holly Jolly ! Her name is from Cardz TV Stamps the "Home for Christmas" set. She comes from the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge and is cut at 3.13. She wanted to look just perfect for her visiting guest today, so she is sporting her Peachy Keen Stamp smile, on her wide eyes and cheeks, she has Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils. Doesn't she look great?!!!


Accompanying her will be  Friends are the best presents! Their names are from the same stamp set "Home for Christmas". These two cuties are coming at you from Joys of the Season cartridge. Like Miss Holly Jolly, they too decided to sport their smile using Peachy Keen Stamps. Since they didn't bring their makeup they decided to borrow Miss Holly's, along with a White Gel Pen she found in her purse, of course he didn't put on as much as she did!

Take a bow Mini composition books, you did a fabulous job!!!

You may purchase this set of stamps the Minis are using from Mary at Cardz TV Stamps!


I hope you have enjoyed my creations and  the little mini Run Way Walk of Fame!! It's now time for you to head on over to talented Susan, I am sure you will be pleased!

OH wait, I have a parting gift for one special person, just leave me a comment with a way I can get in contact with you. If you like what you see, don't leave without joining me on my blog hop journey!

Oh my gosh, Melissa. These are absolutely adorable and just reminded me that I bought some of these comp books to alter. Heaven help me, one more project to get done. I've got some great inspiration now.

jillorcutt said...

Hi, Love your cards. You made me realize I need to get out my Peach Keen Stamps. I hate to admit it, but I forget about them! I don't seen anything on the #2 blog about CardzTV Christmas Blog Hop...all I see is about yesterday's challenge. Can you help clear this up? I want to try and win the prize, but can't if I don't leave her a comment. Trouble is I don't know where to put it. HELP.

DeeLightfulCompany said...

I love that Baker's twine. Thanks for being in Mary's blog hop.

Betsy said...

Cute idea! I need to get some of the Peachy Keen stamps ~ they're so adorable!

Grannie Sharon said...

Thanks for the incentive to get out my books and start working on them again! I had started and then put them aside to work on other things. I'm right with JILLORCUTT - not able to locate blog #2 so I echo the cry for HELP! Thanks!
