12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.

Did you sleigh ride over from guest designer Angela? If so, you’re on the right path, but if you stumbled upon this hop and want to begin with our hostess, skate over to Lisa.

This hop will take place November 25-December 6 and the new postings each day will be up by 8 AM EST. The hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way to create all of those beautiful Christmas projects. This is an awesome opportunity to get a lot of your Christmas cards, and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed, and be inspired to create something using a new technique.

There will be a new project posted each day by all the wonderful amazing ladies in this hop. Also each day we will have a guest designer for you to visit. Lisa, our hostess, will be giving away some wonderful blog candy each day of the hop from the amazing sponsors that we have. Lisa will be posting all the winners from this hop on December 10. Every one has a chance to win including the ladies participating in the hop and even the guest designers and the sponsors. At the end of each post we will have a list of all the sponsors so all you need to do is click on their name to go to their sites and check out all the wonderful sites. We want to thank each of the sponsors for their generosity. It has been greatly appreciated.

Also please leave a love note with each hop crafter and become a fan if you’re not already.

Hi, Crafties, Mama LoveBug here - last year I created a 12 Days of Christmas Count Down and I'm doing the same this year too.  The difference is I have a Cameo, so many of my projects will be cut with this awesome machine, but all will feature images from Digi My World's 12 Days of Christmas.  These are not huge projects, but when you collect them all together at the end, they can be used as table decor for decorating a holiday gathering or office party.  By the end of our 12 days I'm betting you'll know this song by heart!!

"On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree."

*Digi My World Image - fussy cut and accented with gel pens and Stickles
