Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Winter Blog Hop

Hi everyone!! Thanks for stopping by for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Winter Blog Hop!

If you came here from Melisa's blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog.

For my project today used the Jolly St. Nick Cutting Files

Soooo many files in this set!! 

I used some pictures from Bria's second Christmas for this layout. These pics were taken before we went to see Santa! 

The pictures are supposed to be gifts in the sleigh, if you can't tell.... This layout didn't turn out exactly as I had pictured in my mind. Don't ya hate when that happens??  

This is such a great Santa cut... I added some white flock onto Santa to make him a little more realistic.

I embossed Santa's sleigh with a herringbone embossing folder, added some chalk ink and white stitching. All the ribbon I used on my gifts is from 3 Girl Jam. 

I made my title using some fonts in the Silhouette Software and added some ink, embossing and white stitching. 

I used foam stickers to add some dimension to my layout. Of course it wouldn't be a Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog Hop without some great candy!!!

For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog on our hop and leave a comment on each blog.
