Happy Holidays dear SCT friends! Emily here today for the final days of the 12 Days of Holiday Giving. Hasn't it been grand? The giveaways have been amazing!

My husband and I decided to shake up our lives this holiday season and pack up everything in our house to replace the flooring on two levels. Most of our life fits in the garage! I thought it would only take a couple of weeks, but we're just now getting moved back in 5 weeks later! I didn't think about my holiday decorations being inaccessible. Nor did I consider my crafting supplies would be packed! This left me in a pickle, but with the help of some lovely glitter paper from Doodlebug Designs, some baker's twine, and a couple of lengths of felt balls, I was able to create a Christmas-y garland for our living room mantel. Thank you Pinterest!


In the past, I'd always trusted my hand cutting skills. Now that I have a Silhouette, I always use it to cut out letters. My Silhouette was packed. 🙁 Happily, I can still use scissors pretty well. I simply cut the 12×12 sheets into 4"x6" rectangles and eyeballed each letter (the W was cut from a 6"x6" piece) for one of my favorite holiday phrases. I'd kept out my Crop-a-dile from We R Memory Keepers and was able to punch the holes to hang the letters on the twine. I pulled some things from around the house that didn't get packed and made a nice mantelscape. It will work quite well until I find the Christmas boxes next week. I'm pretty sure I'll just be adding the stocking holders and maybe another few glittery things though, I really love how this turned out! I am going to make another garland with the leftover paper, perhaps a FA-LA-LA?

"12 Days of Holiday Giving" Day Ten GIVEAWAY!

We have a great day planned and while 10 lords a leaping could be fun, we have a better idea of fun with two amazing companies joining our celebration today! Oh Crate Paper, be still our hearts! This fun Snow and Cocoa line was a great part of our winter kits. The soft colours with a vintage flavour sure made it a hit! Let's get to today's fun giveaways…

"Merry Christmas from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! If you're dreaming of a white Christmas, or pink or blue or any other pretty color, we've got a prize package of dies that will help you create a flurry of exciting cards, tags and more!

Noel Fri-Dies, a set of 3 wafer thin steel dies consisting of 3 lovely word dies that cut 5 individual words. The first letter of each word is detached so you can space it as you'd like. This set will work with nearly all of our holiday collections but specifically coordinate with Autumn Blessings, Lovely Blessings and Lovely Snowflake stamp sets, all sold separately.

Flurry Fri-Dies is set of 3 gorgeous snowflake dies designed to be used independently. These beauties will coordinate stylistically with all of our snowflake stamp sets, sold separately, but are larger than any of the stamps in those sets. Each flake is approximately 2 inches. For use in most leading die cut systems. Made in the USA." ~ Michele, owner, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

For our final prize today we have a little love to you from SCT! We have our brand new SCT Delivered Cup of Cheer card kit to offer! Each of our quarterly card kits come with an exclusive 3×4 stamp set, a coordinating die, a few other exclusives too and many of your favourite papers and embellishments!
