Family and Friends Blog Hop

If you are looking for Day 1 of our Teddy Bear Parade Blog Hop, please click here.

Welcome to the Krazy Crafting Crew’s November hop! This month our focus is on some very important people in ourlives, family and friends!  Sometimes with all we do we don't have enough time for everyone special in our lives so we decided that we would share with you all some ways we can make them feel special.

Our host this month is Jessi If you started there you have not missed any of our heartfelt projects. You should have arrived here from (the person before you’s blog), if not head back to Jessi’s blog to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

We have a special sponsor for our hop - Scrapbook Stamp Society.

They would love to reward one special blog visitor with a prize from their store. To be qualified for their drawing, please comment on all participating blogs and let them know you have to give a way, and let them know how they can get ahold of you.

You can receive extra entries for following them on Facebook at Scrapbook Stamp Society and for commenting on the Scrapbook Stamp Society blog.

Here is my project:

Since this hop is all about family and friends, I decided to make a gift for my Aunt for Christmas.  She always says she doesn't want us to give her any gifts and so I make her something different every year.  This year I decided to make her a set of monogrammed cards to have to send out.  I saw this idea on another blog but for the life of me I can't find the blog now to give credit to the person who inspired me.  That teaches me to use Pinterest ALL the time and not just most of the time.

I used Close to My Heart's La Belle Vie paper to make these A2 size cards.  I used two different stamp sets to make this set of cards.  One is Perfect Fit - Frames and the other is Monogram "R".  Both of these stamp sets coordinate with the Art Philosophy cartridge which makes it SO much easier to use.  No more cutting by hand!  Yippee

Here is the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderfully crafty day!

  5. Hi Lucy! Last but surely not least! Your monogrammed notecards are adorable -- what a super gift for an Aunt who "doesn't want anything." I have those too! You've given me a special idea for my favorite aunt who put down her paintbrushes (watercolor) when my uncle died a few years ago. :)

    Always nice hopping with you!
