Festive Blog Hop #14

Here we are again! Welcome to our blog hop where we will show you some great Christmas cards!
Yes you heard right! Christmas cards!
If you just happened to come upon my blog you can start the hop at Terri's blog, but if you came here from Cheryl's blog you are at the right place.

I did three cards for today's hop... I used some leftover Christmas paper I had from last year.
I used three Splitcoast Card Sketches.... #335, 336 and 337.
335- I embossed a snowflake stamp (A Rhonna Christmas Card) with clear embossing powder.
The sentiment is a circle stamp by Junkitz. I just love this design.
336- A very simple card. The peace stamp is by inkadindado. I stamped it with peeled paint distress ink. The three snowflakes I cut with my cricut using Winter Lace. They are 1 1/4 and 1 inch. I put some stickles on them for glitter!
337- The Merry Christmas is dry embossed with a sizzix folder and then I just rubbed some red ink (distress) over it... The white piece under that is also cuttlebugged (or big shotted) (is that a word) with christmas starts and then rubbed with ink..... 3 easy cards made in about an hour!

Hop on over and check out what the talented Amanda has for you today!!!!

UR SWEET- Tacky Tuesday Challenge

Well the hot weather is here in Ontario and I have made a card to cool you down... well kind of anyway!
This card is for the Tacky Tuesday Challenge I participate in on facebook... I want to do a little something more to this card but I am unsure what.
I love the ice cream stamp though and I got the sparkly paper from Up The Street, my LSS in Strathroy.
Did I mention I love this ice cream stamp... Tara from Up The Street let me borrow it.... thanks Tara!

Check this out... go see Chris Wooten's blog!!!!

Check out Chris's giveaway!!!! Go to and do the four steps!!!! Tell her I sent you!!!!

Here are the reasons you want Unibind Photo Book Creator and albums: The difference: They use resin instead of glue and have a patented SteelBinding concept that distinguishes the Unibind transparent or hardbook cover from all other covers on the market.

Your photo paper will sink into the heated resin binding the book in 90 seconds. If you want to add more pages, just heat the book again, add the pages and let it cool. This process is awesome because that means each school year you can keep adding to your album.
The Bottom Line
PhotoBook Creator by Unibind is an incredibly easy to use printing and binding system for creating photo books at home. The book covers are of good quality and the resin-style binding is a very professional-style of securing the pages. The software allows even those with limited computer skills to quickly create and print beautiful page layouts.
The Photobook Creator gives you the ability to make beautiful hardback books in just 90 seconds, right from the comfort of your own home or office.
