Hello all! Sorry for the long hiatus. It seems this always happens after Christmas until I feel refreshed again! My husband got me some awesome crafting items for Christmas, including a new Cricut cartridge – Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 (TBBM2)! Here is a pumpkin gift bag I made. I haven’t embellished it yet but thought I would show how it looks after cutting and assembling.
I plan on making the tea cup next. Hubby also bought me the scoring tip and my lovely sister and brother-in-law gave me the Cricut gel pens for my birthday to print the card phrases from TBBM2! They also got me a nice selection of stamps, Martha Stewart punches, and paper!!! I feel a bit spoiled! I can’t wait to dig into these items and start crafting again!
On top of this, I won a giveaway through Northridge Publishing’s “30 Days of Holiday Giveaways”. The box of goodies came a week after Christmas! I had never one a prize before so this is quite exciting! Northridge Publishing banded together with Provo Craft to create Cricut Magazine. I became a follower of Northridge Publishing’s Create blog a few months ago because they have card challenges and giveaways throughout the year. During December, they hosted their 30 Days of Holiday Giveaways where you can enter each day’s giveaway by leaving a comment. This particular prize package was hosted by American Crafts and included paper and embellishments from their different lines: Dear Lizzy ‘5th & Frolic’ (my favorite), Pebbles ‘Seen & Noted’, Crate Paper ‘On Trend’, Studio Calico ‘Darling Dear’, and a few embellishments from ‘Yearbook’. Here are pictures of the goodies that arrived. The items were separated by their design lines in 4 big “zip loc” bags.
Even though the 30 Days of Holiday Giveaways is over, there are still other giveaways they host each week. And with their new monthly Cards Blog Challenge, there are more opportunities to win some lovely scrapbooking and card supplies! I am not a paid endorser of their site, just a fan and I just wanted to share this with others so you too can win. It would be exciting to hear of blog followers winning their own goodies and seeing what you make!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and a wonderful New Year so far!!!
