Challenge Masters Rockin blog hop!

Hey there all-

Boy have I been busy! I had a blog hop for The Character Cafe so please make sure you are all checking there out!!!! The girls that are co owners are just wonderful and work so hard on their new images!

The design team at Ch{all}enge Masters (most of us) decided to do Our first ever Christmas blog hop! We were to give you a holiday project so I went with what I do for teacher gifts! I buy hot chocolate packets (flavored) and make a holder for them! I will show you the holder now! You should have started at Challenge Masters main blog and come to me from Janet!


This is such an easy holder to make! I will give you instructions.

1. Take a piece of cardstock and cut it to 11 x 7 1/2
2. Score at 1 inch and 6 inches
3. Fold the 1 inch in (you will adhere front to this section)
4. Fold the back side in to lay on top of inch strip (this side you will decorate)
5. Take any stamp you want to do background. I used a snowflake stamp. Use pigment ink so you can emboss images.
6. Emboss
7. Make a box of solid color 3 1/8 inches x 3 1/4
8. Make image box of 3 x3 and stamp image of your choice and whatever medium you would like. Color
9. Adhere image to solid color then adhere to front of embossed side.
10. Make a tag of some sort. I used the circle one as shown.
11. Put holder together with pop dots (I found work best) and punch a hole (through both sides) which will be used to tie ribbon.

12. Put ribbon through hole (this will hold hot chocolate packets) lower packets making sure to hold both strings and tie in a bow. You now have your teacher gift!!!!! I usually just put the name a giver on the back or you could decorate the back to like I did my first year but now I am lazy and don't! LOL


We were told to tell you a Christmas story that is special to us. I think that would be when I got my Kitchen aid mixer. I know it sounds like a spoiled brat but I wanted one for a few years. Each year I waited knowing that it was kind of expensive for my parents but I had hopes! Well we finished our presents and I said to myself that maybe next year Santa will bring it! My mom tells my dad to go to the car she forgot something and in it came! I finally got my Kitchen Aid Mixer!!!! I have to say I cried! My poor mom got up at 3:30 to get to Kohl's for the Black Friday special! I was so happy and thankful!!!!!


Now you need to continue on to the next blog, which is the great designer, Sharon Rittler!!!!
