Good morning all of my crafty friends.

Welcome! Today I am hosting the Christmas Decorations blog hop and I have a great line up of awesome crafters who have all created awesome decorations for your inspiration. Please make sure you visit all the blog in the hop list and leave a comment on every blog to be eligible to win my grand prize Cricut Imagine Cartridge. Plus, all of these ladies put a lot of time into their projects and would love for you all to visit them.

But first I must announce the winner of the Christmas Cards blog hop last weekend. The winner is Sherrie K, you won Cricut Cartridge Winter Lace. Please email me at scrapperbecka at yahoo dot com by Dec 15th or I will have to draw a new winner.
Also, I mailed out the blog candy from the Fall Decoration hop yesterday, so you should be getting it next week.
Ok, so on with the show. So, I thought it would be neat to have a Christmas Decoration blog hop because I always see the cutest decorations in the stores but they are so expensive. And I always think to myself "Hmmm... I could totally make that."  And of course I have so much crafting stuff, I wouldn't even have to buy anything.. LOL!  So I thought I would put it to the test and see what I could come up with. Plus, I wanted to see other ideas & projects so I could try those too.
So if you visit my blog a lot than you probably know by now that I love to make banners. And I love the $1 bin at Michaels. Yes I know I did it again... I make a Christmas banner out of the $1 bin coasters. Who knew these little coasters would be so handy. LOL!
Anyways here is the banner I made:

Here are some up close pictures

Items needed to make this
4x4 coasters or cardstock
DCWV Christmas Cardstack
Birthday Bash Cartridge- letters cut at 3"
Art Philosophy Cartridge- Stocking cut at 2.65"
Christmas Cartridge- Holly Berry cut at 2.41"
Winter Frolic Cartridge- Presents cut at 2.65"
Sanding paper/ I used d-stressor
Metal 1" rings

For this blog hop I am giving away the Cricut Imagine Cartridge Mystical Garden. 

In order to win there are three things you have to do.

1. Be a follower of my blog
2. Comment on this post- if you leave your blog address I would love to come visit you
3. Leave a comment on every blog in the hop (this is really important- last week I had to re-pick a winner because she didn't comment on every blog)
Thats it! Easy Peasy!

Hi Becka! This is such a great idea! I picked up a bunch of these coasters when they went on clearance for .50! I planned on using them as covers for mini scrapbooks but I love this idea better! I am making this my project of the day today! I just finished hopping and commenting along the entire hop! Great DT work!
