25 Days 2012 Day 1

Good morning crafty friends!
This is Melin. I know I don't do a lot of the posting on my own blog...lol, but I wanted to personally welcome you to Day 1 of our 3rd Annual... 
25 Days of Christmas and Year 'Round Crafting Showcase

We are so super thrilled to have you join us! We have almost 30 designers who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to create some spectacular projects to share with you! So pull up a comfy chair and get ready to be inspired! There will be daily projects featuring:
* Cricut Cartridges
*Electronic Die Cutting Files 
(Svg type, using Pazzles, Silhouette, Gazelle, Cameo type Machines)
*Digital Stamps with Coloring
(Using Copics, Digital and other coloring mediums)
*Stamping and Inking
*Traditional Dies, Punches and all the other tools we love.
A Little Something For EVERY TYPE of "Paper Crafter"

Organizing an event like this takes a TON of behind the scenes work. These ladies have been cutting, pasting, inking, embossing and glitzin' their hearts out for you. PLEASE, PLEASE take the time to visit them at their blogs and just leave them a quick little bit of holiday cheer and love. 

Format: Each day the designers were given a “theme” to work with, so each day will be different.  We will also have a daily FREE Cutting File and a daily FREE Digital Stamp-Printable along with some FREE Royalty-Free Vintage Graphics. Today's theme:
day 1 label
Yep, it's that time of the season when we are "Decking the halls", putting on the glitz and everything in between! There is just something so inviting and warm about seeing all the lights on houses, Christmas trees and in homes. I love holiday decorations!  So Let’s get right to it!
