Christmas Special Delivery

Hello friends! Welcome to my first week as a Design Team member at The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog! I am very excited to have joined the team and I am really looking forward to our year around Christmas project posts. The blog posts weekly, but has two separate teams that post ever other week. That may sound complicated, but I think it is a fun idea.  I will be posting every other Wednesday, starting today!

For my first project with the Merry Christmas Challenge blog I created a 3-D mailbox with Christmas tag stuffers.  I confess that I saw a photo of a thin die on Pinterest that was being used to make a similar mailbox.  Being me, I did not buy the thin die, but instead opened Cricut Design Space and used basic Cricut Shapes and Anna Griffin's Elegant Embellishment cartridge to design my own version of the mailbox, even creating my own candy cane trim.

My mailbox is embellished with pretty cuts from two of Anna Griffin's other cartridges, Winter Wonderland and Christmas Kitsch. I added ribbons to the Christmas tags, and finished the box with gold stars popping out of the mail slot.

I hope you will join us at the Merry Christmas Challenge blog where every week is all about Christmas!!

It is National Stamping Month and CTMH could not let National Stamping Month pass without a stamping special!  

The exclusive From the Heart card kit gives you all the materials you need for creating 12 interactive cards, including an E-size stamp set with heartfelt sentiments and stamps you can layer together for exquisitely artistic cards. Available only during September, this card kit is a must have that will help you create elevated artwork from the heart.
