Blog Hop! October Stamp of the Month: "Holiday Magic"!

Welcome to the Blog Hop! I am excited to show you what I created using the October 2011 stamp of the month which is called "Holiday Magic" (a set of 18 stamps). I have been looking forward to this one for a while because it is one of my favorites stamp sets AND I am going to use it for my own personal Christmas Cards this year!

  1. Super cute card! Did you cut the stocking with the cricut? at what measurements. Love the twine!

  2. What a great idea for a postage stamp background!

  3. Thanks ladies! Yes, Melissa, I used the cricut on the stocking. I had to test the settings because its not called out on the carrier sheet. But, I found that 3 1/4" works well! :)

  4. Love this! Thanks for the measurements on the cricut as well!

  5. Cute card! Love the baker's twine.

  6. Fantastic project! love the Pear and Cranberry combo!
