Holiday Blog Hop With the ScrapbookPal Design Team

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!!  Today the ScrapbookPal design team is having a Holiday Blog Hop that will last all weekend.  I hope you can join us.

If you haven't been shopping at ScrapbookPal.com, you should check it out sometime.  They have fabulous prices on all kinds of crafting tools and supplies....from Cricut products and adhesive to Copic markers and ink pads.  One of my favorite things about shopping at ScrapbookPal is the free US shipping on all orders over $25 and my orders always arrive quickly. 

Today, I am going to share with you some ornaments that I made for my Christmas tree with the Limited Edition Winter Lace cartridge
I used my Cricut Exression to cut out 12 of the various 3D snowflakes that are on this cartridge.  I cut them all at 3 inches out of the clear plastic packaging that comes on all of the new cartridges.  I cut out the flat surfaces and then save them up to use on my projects like this one.  I use my Deep Cut Blade and Housing for cutting this material, but you could probably use the regular blade and housing with the multicut set for 4 or more passes.  After I cut and assembled the snowflakes, I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the edges and let it dry and then hung them on my tree.

(I cut three sets like the one above)

Now on to the rest of the blog hop.  To particiapte, you need to hop along the list and visit each of the design team members blogs and leave comments along the way.  Hop back to the ScrapbookPal blog to become a follower and then leave a comment for your chance to win a Cricut cartridge of your choice from in stock cartridges at ScrapbookPal.com.  If you want to become a follower on my blog, I would love it, but it is not a requirement to win the prize.  (I am having a giveaway HERE for a cricut cartridge if you want to check that out before you continue on the hop)
