Stamp to the Max November Blog Hop

Hello world!  I have been totally absent from pretty much everything lately.  Yep, I am still pregnant...but baby is scheduled for the 18th no matter what.  Plus I was on bed rest for 6 weeks or so and that kind of put me out of the loop of life.  But, things are going well now and frankly, it is time to get this little guy out.  :)

Welcome to this month's blog hop.  I skipped last month for the above mentioned reasons.  You would think one would get lots of crafting done when you aren't allowed to leave the house and what not.  BUT, you would be surprised at how much you really can't do while on bed rest.

I am back at it and have an awesome banner project for the holiday season.  I used the Simply Created Banner Kit from the Holiday Catalog and added on the Christmas Banner Accessory Kit with a little bit of Silver Glimmer Paper and basic cardstock.  I really like how it turned out.

The best part is that you can make it say whatever you want.  Here are some ideas:  Merry, Joy, Snow, Noel, Burrr, etc...  So customize it for your holidays or just winter in general.  The accessories are all included in the add on kit.  The only thing that I added myself was the snowflake cutouts between the letters and lollies.  I used the Festive Flurry framelits and some Glimmer Paper and cardstock in matching colors. 

This would make the perfect gift for anyone you know or yourself.  I am choosing to give mine to myself.  :)  Those are the best kinds of gifts right?

Hope you enjoyed the sample and now you get to move along to the next great holiday gift idea in the hop.  You can place orders on my website 24 hours a day.  And make sure you check in with the specials and promotions that are going on there as well.  Thanks!
