If you came here by way of the Fabulously Crafty Julie then you are on the right track! If you landed here randomly and would like to join the Hop please start at the beginning at Cricut Cardz Challenge. Be sure you start there because Mary has some great Blog Candy to give away!

For my Hop project I decided to make a magnetic Easter scene. I love crafting with my five year old Nephew so I knew I wanted to make a project that you could do with kids. I also wanted the project to be one that could be made in a short amount of time. I think little ones will love to help make this project as much as they love playing with it. My Nephew tested this out and loved it. He has since requested a red Easter Basket of his own. Please watch the video below to see my project in action!

 

Easter Basket Goodies!

 

It's the Easter Bunny!

 

Chocolate Bunny for me! What about you?

 

Here's my little nephew having fun!

For my project I decided that I needed to do something with the container of bottle caps that I had been collecting. (Thank you to my boyfriend and brother for saving these for me and trying their best not to dent them). In the video below I will show you how I made three ornaments! It’s a fun creative project for kids and adults of all ages. Plus it’s the perfect project to keep kids busy during Winter Break. The video goes by kinda quick so be ready to push pause.

Hello and welcome to the Advent Calendar Blog Hop!!! I’m so happy that you are hopping with us. First things first, if you came here from Michelle’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you landed here by chance and want to play along or need to get back to the beginning of the hop, please start here at Angelica’s blog. If this is your first time to primpedinpaper.com, I want to say welcome and I hope you find my blog inspiring.

Let’s get started! I’m thrilled to be part of another Hop hosted by the sweet and talented Ruthie.  This Hop includes 16 awesome ladies. I’m excited to be included in this group of talented paper crafters. Thank you Ruthie for hosting another amazing Hop!

This is my first time making an Advent Calender so I was really looking forward to this project. I decided to challenge myself to not use my Cricut. I wanted this Advent Calendar to be something that anyone could put together with minimal supplies. So I got out my Christmas patterned paper stacks, punches, strands of beads, glitter, one very cute set of Lawn Fawn stamps and my hot glue gun. Then I went to town! Click photo’s to see a bigger picture.

2010 Advent Calendar

Each cone is made from a 5x5 piece of patterned paper.

The tissue paper is hand stamped with a peppermint stamp from Sassafras. The cute animals are from the Lawn Fawn, Critters in the Snow stamp set.

I decided to use my circle punch since almost everyone has one in their craft supplies.

The cones are hung with clothes pins that I glittered. The red flower on cone 25 was made by my good friend Susan (suziecrafter).

I hope you liked my Advent Calender. It was a lot of fun to make and I think it looks very festive hanging on my fireplace. Now I just need to get some goodies to put inside the cones. At the bottom of the post I listed the products I used to embellish my Calendar. Whether you keep it simple or embellish it to max, I think it will look amazing. The most important things to me are that all ages can help make it, you don’t need a lot of supplies and of course that you have fun!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! Before I send you off to your next stop. I have some Blog Candy!!! I apologize for not have a photo of it. But the Blog Candy is a collection of holiday stamped images (which I can stamp in your choice of Black StazOn or Tuxedo Black Memento ink, 20  5×5 sheets of Christmas patterned papers, fibers and some other goodies.

If you would like to be eligible to win all you have to do is leave me a comment. Comments for the blog candy will close at 11:59pm pst Monday Nov. 29. I’ll post the winner on Tuesday afternoon.

Welcome to Ruthie’s Banner Blog Hop! I know all of you are having a blast and getting inspired this morning. This Hop has so many super talented and creative ladies in it. Thank you to our Hop hostess Ruthie for hosting another fun Hop!

If this is your first time to my blog, I want to say hello and I hope you’ll enjoy your stay. If you have landed here by way of MoMo’s blog you are in the right place. If you get lost along the way or came across this post by chance, please click here to start at the beginning of the Hop.

Ok, let’s get started! I’m very excited to share with you my Christmas 2010 Banner! This is the first banner I have ever made. I really love how this turned out and think it makes a really cute decoration piece. Each banner piece was cut into the shape of a Christmas ornament and hung with gold cord onto gold ribbon. I decided to have each ornament represent a Christmas theme or scene instead of spelling out a word. I thought this was a fun twist on the traditional banner.

Christmas 2010 Banner!

Poinsettia's just say Christmas!

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night."

All bundled up!

"Now Dash Away! Dash Away! Dash Away All!"

Christmas Morning!!!

Here's a closer look at each of the ornaments.

Here’s a list of products I used on this project:

The Cricut cartridge Christmas (digital download) was used to cut the Ornament & the House, Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge was used to cut the Christmas tree. Sure-Cuts-A-Lot was used to cut the poinsettia’s and the reindeer.  I decorated the ornaments with, Peppermint forest patterned paper, gold bead trim from Joann’s, gold embossing powder, Distress Inks in Fired Brick & Broken China, pigment ink, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Scribbles iridescent gold paint, DecoArt Snow Writer, DecoArt Glamour Dust, gems, flock (it’s on the teddy bear), The Greeting Farm, Inkadinkado and Martha Stewart stamps. If I have left anything out or if you have any questions, please let me know. You can also email your questions to primpedinpaper@gmail.com

Thank you very much for hopping with all of us today! Before I send you onto your next stop, I have some Blog Candy!!! I’d like to giveaway a set of Pearlescent watercolors.

Yayyy! Blog Candy!!!

For your chance to win, just leave me a comment telling me which ornament on my banner is your favorite! Winner will be posted on Monday November 8th. As for me, I like something from each of them but I especially love the little animals and snowman all bundled up in the snow.

So now it’s time for you to hop on over to the sweet and talented Sarah! Just click the button below and you’ll be taken to her blog. Thanks again for hoppin’, have a wonderful day!
