KinderStampo's Holiday Cheer Blog Hop!

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the KinderStampO Guest Design Team "Holiday Cheer" Blog Hop...

As you can tell from that sweet new picture I have, I get to be a Guest Designer for the one and only KinderStampO!

I am so excited to share my creativity with you...
We have a lot of fun projects, challenges, features and surprises in store
for you and I can't wait for you to be part of it !

My name is Amanda, and I have been crafting for over 16 years and am constantly on the lookout for new techniques and tricks. I am a card maker, through and through, but I do love Hybrid Crafting as well as altered art. I love to make cards and send them to friends and family, even just to say hi. There's just something special about receiving a handmade note with some kind words in it. Crafting is my true love. I always have the "I can make that" thought in my head when I am shopping or running errands. Lately though, it seems like I can't make time to make "that"!

I would like to send a sincere thank you to Jessica for this opportunity. I have loved her products since she started her business, and they are so beautiful, just like her. She is one of the sweetest, most genuine, and outrageously talented women I know. I feel so fortunate to be a Guest Designer for her. THANK YOU, JESS!!

My project for this awesome hop is a treat box... Our theme was "Holiday Cheer" and the colors black, white, red and gold. I love, love, love the "Vintage Halloween" set and used the sentiment "Sweet Treats for You". Right when I received news of the hop, I knew what stamp I'd be using! Then, I ordered her "Vintage and Traditional Holiday" set and had to include some of those, too!

This is a close up of the four panels of the box. I cut it from the Cricut "Artiste" Cartridge from "Close to my Heart".
This project was so much fun, and thanks to the KinderStampo products, it definitely put me in the mood to spread some holiday cheer!
As a holiday treat for you, Jess is hosting an awesome giveaway! How does a stocking full of KinderStampO products sound?

    As I'm getting ready to comment I noticed the post below about your seven year old daughter and her love of Monster High and I'm laughing. Oh, and the fact that we are both "Amanda"s... I have a daughter who will be 7 in February and she is also MH obsessed! LOL! Anyway, love the gift box that you've created and am looking forward to working with you on the AWESOME KinderStampO Guest Design team!
