Holiday Blog Hop!

Hi there crafty friends and thank you for joining us in this Holiday blog hop. Inspired By Stamping and WorldWin Papers has teamed up to offer you over 15 inspiring Christmas projects 
to jump start your holiday season. We hope that you’ll find just the right inspiration for your next Christmas themed project.  
Christmas season is all about gift giving, and this hop is no exception. We have planned a very 
sweet giveaway for a lucky winner. To be eligible for the giveaway, please visit each blog in the 
list, grabbing the “letter” code as you go. Once you've landed on our last blog, which is the 
Inspired by Stamping blog, you will leave a comment with the secret phrase created by putting 
together all of those letters that you collected from each blog. Winners of the giveaway will be 
announced on October 23rd
 on both the WorldWin Papers and Inspired by Stamping blogs. 
The designers have worked hard to produce all of these fantastic creations, and we would like to 
invite you to leave some comments on their individual blogs as well. 
So what are you waiting for…let the hopping begin!

I wanted to make a banner for this coming Christmas season and my dear hubby came up with this little saying, which I just love. I picked out several of the gorgeous shimmery paper that WorldWin sent and oh! they are so beautiful!
I cut the banners using my Silhouette Cameo and the Silver Ore paper. I stamped the background in some light aqua ink using a script stamp from Background Basics III. Then I layered a snowflake doily cut from Snow Willow and on top of that cut the stamp mat for one of the Delicate Doily stamps which I heat embossed in white. On top of that I used Wine Cup paper to cut my letters.
I then added little bits of Holiday Washi Tape stamped on ivory cardstock as well as bits of stamped Vintage Banners.
To finish I added some Princess Crochet trim to the top and topped it with stamped little holly images from Holiday Tags. I am looking forward to having this up for the Christmas season. Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Supplies:
*Silver Ore, Petallics, 
*Snow Willow, Petallics, 
*Wine Cup, Petallics,
*Cardstock Packs, Kraft, 
*Cardstock Packs, Ivory,
