Fair well to 2013 soon it will be 2014. It is that time of year gifts are being purchased and made, and it is always wonderful to receive a handmade gift, there are so many great things to give. Some can be expensive some may not. We all are here to give you ideas for all occasions that you may be giving to another.
I am your host today, Lissa here at
 So Many Crafts, So Little time

I hope you enjoy our hop we will go out with a bang and bring you new things next year.
For today's blog candy I am giving away a $10.00 Gift certificate to anywhere you choose that I can purchase online and send the gift card to you online. Preferably you will choose Close to My Heart for a Studio J layout but this is the time to give and I like to give what you like to receive so good luck to every new and old email follower (required to win the certificate) and commenter who comments on the hop, hoping you make an effort on all the blogs.
This is what I have decided to make for your idea gallery...
My project today is a cute cutting file from Creative Kuts! I'm making these and will put my grandchildren's photo's in and on the pages of our holidays 2013 scrapbook pages. This snowman and his penquin pal will be perfect for the two brothers!
The paper is from Close to My Heart! I will probably make one for their parents with hangers on for their trees next year! (or gift tags) I also made a gift box to put the perfect gift in for someone on my list. All materials, including the box is from CTMH

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you had the best Thanksgiving and here's to a wonderful Christmas season!
Here is your line up for your convienience
