Die Cuts R Us Design Team Holiday Blog Hop




Greetings everyone and  welcome to the Die Cuts R Us Design Team Holiday Blog Hop! If you are just landing here, please start from the beginning HERE on the DT blog.  Remember to comment on the blogs you visit and gather all the "key words" from the DT blogs! Unscramble them at the end of the hop and e-mail the "phrase" you come up to SammyeJo at sammyejo@62cards.com for a chance to win a fabulous prize from DCRU!

There are so many items on my Christmas Wish List from Die Cuts R Us.  Santa, you know I've been good!! I couldn't pick just one favorite, I picked a few at DCRU to make this very special keepsake for someone extra special.  They don't have to know I made it for this hop first.  Shhh...Anyway, I used the following in making this Joyful creation: Cuttlebug Emboss A2 SnowflakesEskimo Kisses Chip Sticker Shapes, Glazed Apple Double Sided Paper from the Eskimo Kisses Collection and the ultimate fav...the Cricut Expression!!  Go check out these items at the DCRU store.  Make sure you check out the Cricut Expression which is at an incredibly low price of $200.00!!  And it comes with the Plantin School Book font cartridge and the Accent Essentials shape sampler cartridge.  What a deal!!  If you don't know about the Cricut Expression, it's a 24" personal electronic cutter that allows you to cut characters, shapes and/or letters from 0.25" all the way to 23.5".  You can use any cricut cartridge with the Expression and one handy feature is the new LCD screen that shows just what you are typing for your next cut.  The Cricut Expression is just what you need for card making, altered art, scrapbooking, you name it! Your projects will rise to the next level with the Cricut Expression.  It cuts through paper, card stock, vinyl and chipboard.  You will LOVE it!!  Can you tell I do?!



I won't make you wait...my keyword is HUNG.  Be sure to write it down and then continue hopping along to the next stop on this Holiday Blog Hop which is the blog of the talented and super sweet AMBER of The Country Stamper!!

Be sure to leave me a comment today and good luck to you on winning the DCRU Prize!  If you haven't heard about the Epic Six Giveaway at DCRU, you can get all the details on how to win here. 

Lastly, my family celebrates Christmas and this is an important time for us in which we remember and give thanks for our many blessings.  Whatever you are celebrating this season of holidays, may fun, laughter and joy be part of it!  May God continue to bless us all and may peace and happiness be yours throughout the New Year.  Merry Christmas!

Good morning. What a lovely way to start Christmas Eve. Your project was very nice. I love that it's white in the background. I can never seem to do that but I think I'm going to give it a try now. You are absolutely right about the cricut being a great value at 200.00 my mom and sis both own one I'm next.
