Welcome to Scrappin' Sista and the CookingWithCricut.com Holiday Blog Hop!

If you've come from visiting Cathie at Creative Cutter, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning. Go HERE.

With the holidays fast approaching we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure!

Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog. There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be some nice PRIZES with a few different ways to win at CookingWithCricut.com!

Day 1 Project - I created a gift card holder. 



RECIPE: I started with the core of a toilet paper roll.  I placed a strip of adhesive in one end to secure it.  Next, I measured the tube and cut my paper to match the size of the core all the way around.  I'm being general about the measurements because not every core is the same size.  You will need to measure yours and adjust accordingly.  Cover the core using Modge Podge or another similar adhesive and the paper that you cut.  I used a digi that was provided by our wonderful leader and DT Head Chef Melin for the main feature.  Isn't he adorable?  I mounted the image on a layered cardstock that is 1/4 inch larger on each side.  This was mounted with pop dots.  I love those things!  I used a small scalloped punch to make the slit for the tag that holds the gift card.  The gift card is mounted to a tag that I cut out using the Tag, Bags, and More Cartridge.  I really like this project though I would like to have had time to tweek it a bit.  I had Cricut and computer issues.
BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!
I'm offering the Gingerbread 2010 cutting file or digital stamp to one of my hoppers.  All you need to do is place ONE link to your blog in the Mr. Linky below.  It's real easy.  If you have problems, email me your blog addy plus your email address at christel(at)majesticdesigns(dot)net and I will put the link on for you.  I will use the Random Generator to select one winner on Wednesday, November 17.

Now it's your turn! Let’s see your wonderful holiday projects. Be sure to try and include a Cricut or other die cut machine on your project and link it up at CookingWithCricut.com.

Next stop...Kristal's blog (Yep there's two of us.), Getting Cricky with K Andrews.  Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to head back to CookingWithCricut.com and get entered to win!

Happy Holiday Hopping!
