Scrap-Mart Blog Hop

My second post for today, be sure to scroll for the Get Sketchy post.

Welcome to the First Annual Scrap-Mart.com Blog Hop! If you are just joining in please go to the Scrap-Mart blog to start from the beginning. There are 31 blogs participating in the hop and you will find some great prizes along the way. You must comment on THAT blog post to be eligible to win that prize. There are also some Grand Prizes posted on the Scrap-Mart blog. You must comment on EVERY blog throughout the hop to be eligible for the Grand Prizes. Comments will remain open until midnight CST on Sunday, December 5th.  Winners will be chosen at random for each individual prize and will be announced on the Scrap-Mart blog on Friday, December 10th. You may only win once. We'd like to thank our sponsors for generously donating all the prizes for this hop:  Making Memories, Spellbinders, JustRite Stampers, Sizzix, Heartfelt Creations, Lifestyle Crafts, The Stamps of Life, Boss Kut, Unity Stamps, October Afternoon, Copic, Silhouette America.

If you have arrived from Claire's blog then you are on the right path, if not you may want to go back to the Scrap-Mart blog to start at the beginning.


For my creation I started with the Spellbinders Mitten (which I LOVE!).  I cut out the mittens in Kraft card stock then stamped it with a Unity Background Stamp (plaid).  I then cut out some cuffs as well as a back.  I sewed them together to create a pocket for some Hershey Kisses - a countdown calendar for my kids.  The numbers are from Elle's Studio.



A close up of the mittens.

Now I have some Unity stamp sets up for grabs and all as you have to do is leave me a comment here and the winners will be posted next week.  I have 2 prizes up for grabs, the first is 2 stamps (Numbers in the Clouds and Monthly Report) the second a the stamp set (Explore Today and Everyday) so there are 2 chances to win!!!  Be sure to comment!  ETA - this is now closed, thank you everyone!

Your next stop is Kristina.
