So, for this week we have something really excited all planned out for you!! Stocked FULL of inspiration...are you ready?
Let's get started.....

cuttlebugfestivals


Welcome to our First ever Festival of Lights from the fabulous team at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog!

The party kicked off over on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog with a map of the participating Design Team , if you get lost on the way no worries, just check the DT off the map.

In addition to the fabulous projects, we have decided to make this party the most fun ever, by hiding 2 treasures along the hop!

Two "selected" Designers will draw a random winner from the comments left on her blog in the hop, But of course, it wouldn’t be a treasure hunt if you knew which blog is hiding the treasure, right?

The winner will receive a $30 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps!

You will also get a free year subscription to Technique Junkie Sponsored by Pat Huntoon.

So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win, and add the Cuttlebug blinkie to your blog!!

Cassie Larson
Cindy Royal
Karen Maldonado

P.S. the more comments you leave the better chances you have at winning!!!

Okay, so for my project I decided to alter a candle holder I found at my local thrift store! A little bit of paper and twine and it's ready to sit on my table for Christmas...or any other occasion!
These flowers were super easy and really fun to make...and best of all, they took a couple minutes to put together!! Make sure you come back here Saturday evening at 6pm Eastern time for the tutorial on how to alter this candle holder!!

  29. Wow, the flowers are wonderful. They remind me of a flower called (excuse the spelling) runuculous. It looks somewhat like a rose, but is very tight.

    How do you upload the blinkie to your blog without losing your background? The only time I tried to put something in the html box it wiped out my background.

    TFS,
