Christmas gifts Blog Hop

Welcome to our December Blog Hop featuring creations that we plan to give as gifts this Christmas.   To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop and I am the first stop on this blog hop so you are in the right stop.  If you came from Candra's blog, Paper Dragon Fleur then you are in the right place! 

 For this project which I have collaborated with my downline, and good friend Lisa, we took glass blocks and drilled a hole in the side, and stuffed a set of white lights inside.  Then taking some pigment inks stamped the images and sentiment on the block.  Taking markers we then colored in the images.  To finish off the block, we stamped lots of random snowflakes from various stamp sets with the White Pigment Ink.  Then we wrapped some Christmas Ribbon around the block and made a loopy bow to dress it all up.

This glass block is overlaid with a piece of Red Vinyl cut with the sentiment Merry Christmas.  I didn't use any CTMH product for this one, but wanted to show it, as the Artbooking has alot of great overlays that would work perfect for this.  

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Carol of Crafty Carol's Place.
 If you get lost along the way, I've provided the entire blog hop list is featured here.
