The CCM HOLIDAY Blog Hop is here !!

Good Morning Papercrafters!  Today is the Creative Cuts and More HOLIDAY Blog Hop and I am so excited.  I know we will be seeing a wonderful variety of holiday projects to get us motivated and inspired!  Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner.

This is a circular blog hop, so if you arrived to my blog from the CCM Die Cut Diva Blog, then you are right on track.  If you didn't, then you will want to hop over to the Die Cut Diva Blog to begin the hop.  If there are any prized or discounts, they will be announced there.  I am posting early because I have to make sure my post is up before leaving for work. 
This blog hop does not start til 8am EST.

I couldn't do just one project.  I love both holidays.

My first idea has to do with gift giving.  In the past I have done ornament swaps with co-workers.  So I thought the "Cupcake Box Set" would make a perfect ornament holder / gift box because of the little insert that goes in the bottom.

Check out the little "Christmas Ornament die".  There are larger ones as well.  CCM has lots of "Christmas dies" you can use for your papercrafting projects this year!

I will list all the other supplies I used at the bottom of the post.

And of course I needed a matching card. 

I used one of the "CCM A2 Cards" for this one in this gorgeous shimmery Curious Metallic papers - Gold Leaf.  The stamp set is one of the new release
Cling Art Stamps by Layers of Color.  Layers of Color is a Spellbinders Preferred Stamp Company!  This one is called "Poinsettia Frame".  This particular image coordinates with Labels 16 !  I didn't use it here.  If I had there would have been a border.

I"ve been getting really busy with Fall projects the last couple of day as well.

I actually posted this one Monday.  But I knew I would have some new traffic with the blog hop so I'm showing it again!  I used the "Large Cake Slice Box" for my treat container and the "Small Filigree Square" (on the name plate and napkin ring).

 You can check out all the details for this ensemble HERE.

So this wraps it up for me today.  I will be posting lots more Fall and Christmas idea's in the upcoming weeks.  If you don't want to miss a thing, you can subscribe via the feedblitz tool and recieve email updates (see left column).

All of the designers now have a discount codes.  So when ordering your CCM products don't forget to use your favorite designers code.  I'm sure you will find it posted on their blog somewhere.
