Video Blog Hop!

This is a fun new concept in blog hops! I hope you have a soda and popcorn ~ just like at the movies, so you can sit and enjoy the fun and exciting ideas the Designers have to present to you today!

I have created a "quilted" block lamp in very traditional colors for you. I used the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge, as well as the Cuttlebug foreign Holly and Berries folder, and the one that says Merry Christmas is from Sizzix.



Enjoy the video, and then off to visit the others! Please leave comments, and there will be prizes!

You could also win a Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge! Leave a comment, and have our blinkie on your blog, and you could be a winner!!

Happy Crafting ~
Betty Bee

Betty, your lighted glass block is so beautiful. I love how you used fabric and vellum on it. The popped-up poinsettias and ribbon add a special wow to it. Stunning project.
