Twelve Blogs of Christmas!!

Welcome to the Paper Crafts, Twelve Blogs of Christmas blog hop.  You should have arrived from Vanessa's blog.  Today, take a few minutes to visit each designer for a chance to win this special issue, as well as The Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World.  If this issue sells like most years, it can be very hard to find once it hits the stands (so pick it up when you see it, or buy it online).  

Here is the cover...isn't it pretty?!


Each designer has chosen a Simple Sentiments (that are free) digital file to use on their project.  Here is the link to all of the sentiments used today.  I chose to use the Merry Christmas sentiment.  All I did was, download the sentiment, opened it up in Word, printed it out onto to card stock and then die cut it out, to use on my card.

Head on over to Jocelyn's blog next!
