My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to your final stop of the Stamp Release Party Blog Hop for My Craft Spot!!  This hop is a little bitter sweet for me.  This will be my last hop as a My Craft Spot Design Team member.  I have been blessed to work with Kimberly on her Design Team since the beginningand I have learned so many great paper crafting tips from her... but I've made the decision to stop posting on my blog by the end of the year in order to spend more time with my family!  I will really miss my bloggy friends especially this incredible group of talented ladies but it is just something I feel my family needs right now.
 
Thank you to all of you who have stopped by and left your sweet comments! I hope you have enjoyed all of the sneak peeks this week! The DT have worked so hard for this Stamp Release and today we are ending with a bang! Are you thrilled to see each of the new sets today?  You should have arrived here from the talented Heather!  If not, jump over to My Craft Spot to start from the beginning for your chance to win a set of the new stamps or dies at each stop! You will not want to miss a stop!

I made a cute little 6" giftie box with the adorable penguin from Create A Critter. 

I added a little scarf using Maraschino Twinery Twine available at My Craft Spot, then made a simple box and popped the penguin off of it with pop-dots.
 
I filled this little guy with some cold weather neccesities...tissues, lip gloss, hand santitizer, and hand lotion!

My daughter thinks the tag is the best part of this guy!  The adorable sentiment comes from the new Think Snow Stamp Set!  The little tag is cut with one die from the new Lacy Banners Metal Dies and one from the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies. 

Speaking of the Think Snow set, who wants to win one of new Think Snow Stamp Sets!!!  I am giving one set away to one lucky winner!!!  Please leave me a comment letting me know which is your favorite new stamp set this week for your chance to win them! I'll announce the winner on Monday 11/12 so stop back to see if you've won!



Thank you so much for hopping with us today! We hope you have been inspired!!  There is a copy of the Blog Hop line-up below in case you got lost along the way or you can head to My Craft Spot to start shopping for these new beautiful stamp sets!  Have a great day!

This is so, so sweet, Amber! My youngest LOVES penguins, so I am always especially drawn to projects with penguins to get ideas for him. What a fun way to give little treats!

Amber, it really has been a delight to work with you at My Craft Spot. You have a wonderful talent and the love you have for your family oozes through your blog. I'm sorry to see you leave the team but commend you for choosing what is best for your family. May God bless you richly in all you do. xox

I hope you don't mind if I borrow this idea. He's make good prizes for our church party. My favorite set is Joy to the World followed by Mistletoe, but we all know all of Kimberley's stamps are great.

Best of luck to you as you leave the team and focus on the family.

Hi Amber: Your little penguin is just adorable and holds the little gifts so perfectly. Great job being an inspiration for Kikberly's AWESOME new stamp sets. They're all delightful, but I think my most fave is the Stampin' Around Christmas because it compliments the die cut set perfectly. The DT is incredibly talented and creative, and I've enjoyed the hop SO much. Have a blessed and relaxing weekend, and thanks again for sharing your God-given talents to help promote these awesome new stamps for My Craft Spot.
Blessings,

How adorable is this?! I just love penguins and I may have to use this idea myself!! :)

correnadotme said...

God bless you for putting your family first. I have never been to this blog before today and you have wonderful ideas, I love the penguin, they would make great hostess gifts for parties. Love the idea and I think I will make some as well for our Ladies Christmas party at church. I think the stamp set I really like the best is the Joy to the World set because of the fonts and the meaning behind the words on it. Even tho you are leaving for now, I am going to follow you so I can come back and get more ideas. God bless you as you spend your time with your family and I am sure they will be blessed as well. Take care.

Our 31 year old daughter fell in love with penguins as a young girl. Every Christmas she loved getting something under the tree that was penguin related. I had forgetten about all those fun memories until I saw your sweet gift box with the Create a Critter penguin on each end. Super cute and like your daughter I too love the sentiment.

My dear Amber.. I confess to being teary right now. I am happy for you and your family, as the added time together is far more important than blogging. However, I will miss you terribly. More than I can express, really. (I will be emailing you in a minute... be sure to check your junk folder if you don't see it! How sad would that be?!)

As for this project, it is positively delightful! The twine scarf, sweet sentiment, and the fact that it's a gift box makes this so adorable. Beautiful work as always, Amber. You are one a million. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
