12 Blogs of Christmas

Good morning, today's the day that I have joined another 11 Stampin' Up! demonstrators for the "12 Blogs of Christmas" tour, which starts at 10.00a.m.

We have all been busy creating Christmas Projects which we hope will give you some inspiration. By clicking on the icon you will be taken to the next blog and hopefully, by clicking on the same icon on every blog you visit, you will get to see all 12 blogs and end up on the same one that you started from .

This is quite an achievement for me who doesnt know too much about computers and my fingers are crossed that it all works.

As well as two Christmassy projects, some ladies are offering blog candy so grab yourself a cuppa and hop aboard. Who knows, you could win yourself some goodies along the way.

You may have been directed here from Jo 's blog or just nipped in for a catch up on my blog but no matter how you arrived, I am glad you did. I hope you enjoy the tour and it would be great if you would leave your comments throughout your journey to let us know what you think, not only about the projects that we made but also your thoughts about this blog hop.

For my first project, I decided to try out a different shaped card. I know that this has been around for some time but its new to me. All the elements are from a Simply Scrappin kit called Christmas Jingle
Although it looks quite complicated to make, it wasnt. I dont do 'complicated'.

My second project is from the ever faitful Silent Night stamping set. I have done this card in practically every colour in the Stampin' Up! range and I havent found a colour that it doesnt work with yet.

I have used the new Eyelet Border punch across the bottom, which I think is really effective. Of course the whole think is covered with dazzling diamonds. If you click on the image you will be able to see the sparkle a bit more.

Thanks for having a read and I hope you enjoy the rest of your tour on todays blog hop.

Finally, I would like to say a very big thank you to Carolyn for organising this.

Lovely cards Tracey. Christmas Jingle is such a gorgeous set, isn't it ? And, of course, the Silent Night set is just beautiful when used this way. Thanks so much for sharing with us. Off to the next blog.

Christmas Jingle is so versatile, I have seen so many projects made with this and they are always stunning. Love your church card and they way you have created the sky. Really sets it all off wonderfully.
