Welcome Winter Blog Hop

Sorry all you end-timers but still here and kickin'!  I just have this to say...

Okay all kidding aside, thanks for stopping by to my third blog hop ( I am on an roll!!!!).  This hop is being hosted by Ashley, The Blog Hop Princessand you can head of there to start at the beginning.
You should have came via Tabetha (such a pretty name!)

My project for this hop was inspired by this picture on Pinterest (which I am totally addicted to by the way).
My best friend found it and said she would loved to have something like this to hang up.  I knew I could do it for her but with a couple of changes.  She lives 5 hrs away so I will have to mail it and do you know how heavy those bells are?!?!  And her living rooms is in blues so I decided to change up the colors.

I found these plain white letters at JoAnn Fabrics.
With a little acrylic blue paint, Crystal Stickles and glittered plastic snowflakes here is what I made for her...
I went with the blue and white winter theme, I figured she can hang it up longer too.

I added some swirls with the stickles and if you look closely, you can see that I put her last name in the design.

I chose to used premade plastic glitter ornaments instead of paper because they would hold up better in the mail and when she stores it after the season.
I am happy to say, she loved it!

I have a little Prize for the hop, but it is a surprise!

Hi everyone, Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
