Robin's Creative Cottage Stamp Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Crafty Kitten for Robin's first "Stamp Release Celebration" blog hop! Robin has generously given each DT member a stamp set to give away...details below. Yay!

Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project that includes one of the two new stamps sets available today for purchase on Robin's blog.

If you've come from visiting Maquel at Paper Maineiac, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along for our "Stamp Release Celebration", start HERE.

Remember to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration along with an amazing giveaway. ***Each blog will have one of Robin's stamp sets as a giveaway for one lucky winner.*** Then hurry back to Robin's Creative Cottage for the link up party where you can share your blog with all our viewers.

For my project I made some stocking note holders! These were super fun and easy to make!

Here are the details as to how I made these:

I used Gingerbread Holiday for the stamps
Cut out a sheet of double sided patterned paper at 3"x8" (Round corners if preferred)
Score at 3.25" & 4.25"
Use an X-acto blade to cut HORIZONTALLY between the two score lines 1" from the top and 1" from the bottom
Stamp "Gingerbread Kisses" on a round top tag cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More at 2"
Cut the Gingerbread Man at 2.5" from Jolly Holidays and embellish as desired
Use circle Nestibilites to cut the circle and scallop (I used Doodlebug glitter paper for the scallop circle and the border punch)
I scored the mini gel pens from Office Depot for the price of 5 for $1!!

*** I have one set of the SUPER cute Gingerbread Holiday stamps to giveaway to one lucky person!!! The winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 22nd. ***
