Ch{all}enge Masters Jingle Bell Hop

Hello & welcome to the first ever Ch{all}enge Masters Holiday Blog Hop. You are now at the 6th stop of the hop. If you are following along the hop, you should have come from Shana's blog. If you get lost along the way or did not start at the Ch{all}enge Master's blog, click here.

The hop started Sat. Dec. 5 at 9:00am EST and lasts until Sunday, Dec. 6 at midnight EST. The blog hoppers are required to visit all 22 blogs and leave a comment on each blog. Then they need to return to the Ch{all}enge Masters Blog and make a post that they have finished. One winner will be selected at random from all the eligible entries for the grand prize which is a $25 gift certificate to the online store of the winners choice. The winner will be announced by Dec. 11.

Here are a few Christmas projects that I have been working on. The first one is a wreath that I made to hang in my scrapbook space. I found the idea at Craft Bits. I used a cereal box, some wrapping paper, a sheet of patterned paper, a bit of ribbon, and a nativity image from Delicious Scraps.
Next I made a small notebook to give as gifts. I used a granola bar box and covered the pieces with cardstock & patterned paper. I created a "notes" image on my computer for the inside paper, and put it all together with my bind-it-all.

My last project is a bookmark. Again I used an empty box for some stability, covered it with paper & decorations. I used sketch 28 from Sketches: Creatively Yours for the design. The snowman is a digital image from from Delicious Scraps.

I have my own little prize to give away. All you need to do to win is tell me what projects you have been creating. Leave your comment on this post to be entered to win. For an extra chance to win become a follower of my blog. One winner will be selected at random from all the eligible entries, and the winner will be announced by December 11th. Sorry but I can only ship my prize to the US and Canada.

After you have visited all the blogs and made a post, be sure to go back to the Challenge Master's blog and post when you are finished. Thanks for hopping with us! Your next stop is Melisa's blog.

Your projects are so cool! Those note pads do make great Christmas gifts and so practical, too!

I've been busy making Christmas cards, but I'm adding note pads to my list of Gift To Make!!

Working on a fun paper poinsettia wreath as I blog hop today! It was a great way to use up a bunch of Christmas paper scraps from the last few years!
