Great Gifts Super Blog Hop


It's a super hop! Today we have a joint blog hop between The Technique Junkie Newsletter, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and Eclectic Paperie. We are celebrating the three companies with what each of us does best! We are using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and paper/embellishments from eclectic Paperie to make an item from one of the 40 tutorials on the Technique Junkie Newsletter's Great Gift CD.

My post shows an example of the Flapped Matchbook Gift Box from the Great Gifts CD. The gift box is one of the 40 step-by-by-step tutorials on the CD, and is only $14.95 .  I love this box; is is a great size and holds quite a bit. Decorating it was easy, too, with Baby's Circus Stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The Lily Bee Design - Persnickety Paper and all the gorgeous flowers, buttons, and other embellishments are all from eclectic Paperie. (click on either image to enlarge it).

In addition to all of the beautiful artwork from the 16 people participating, we have prizes!
 Each of the companies will be giving away a prize randomly drawn from their designers' blogs as follows: 
  • EP: 25% discount on a future order 
  • SNSS: $15 store credit 
  • TJN: Great Gifts CD or any TJN CD of winner's choice
The winners will be posted on each company's blog by Sunday, December 9th.  To be included in the prize drawings, please comment by midnight Friday, December 7th.
