Handmade Holidays Blog Hop Final Stop!



Welcome to The Open Window!

In case you didn't know, it is the FINAL DAY and
I am the VERY LAST STOP 
on the fabulous

 
We’ve gathered designers from some of our favorite manufacturers to show you ways to create something from the heart this holiday season. This 3 day Hop included over 60 stops with inspiration brimming from every corner. Explore all thoughtful and frugal handmade gifts you could make for the holidays, all in one place on this Hop!

To sweeten to Hop, we’re offering a gift for you! For every comment you leave on the blogs in the Hop, you’ll be entered to win a prize pack from one of the participating manufacturer sponsors!
 
I love designing for
 

and we have a most fabulous prize package!
Someone is going to receive THREE of our
Ultimate Color Sampler Packs

blog on the hop!
 
 
For Extra Entries...

Like us on Facebook & tell us you're 
stopping by from Julie's Open Window!
Become a follower of my blog here 
and at The Twinery
and you'll have even more chances to win!

 
The designers participating from The Twinery also had
a wonderful time using products from Clearsnap.
 For my project I used:
 
Design Adhesives Holly Border
Glitter in 'Fool's Gold'
Smooch Ink in 'Siren'
 
I love the new Heirloom Ornaments dies from Spellbinders
and the holly border just off-set on the side was a 
perfect accent.  The berries are colored with the Smooch ink
and the border is stamped with a set from Hampton Arts.
The Radiant Circles punch is from EK Success and makes
an effective backdrop.
 
 
Of course, no project is complete without a 
little bakers twine finish from The Twinery.
 
 
 I am so glad you stopped by...please remember to
