December Challenge – Link Party #35

It’s time for our last link party of 2017!

Announcing a few changes for 2018

  1. Every time we get 100 or more links we will draw TWO random winners and give away TWO prizes
  2. The Challenge is moving to the FIRST MONDAY of every month. (Since I’ve been doing an inspiration post every week, on Monday, and featuring one of you on Guest Designer Friday; it will make things simpler and more organized for me to move the link party to Monday.) Same great challenge – same prize, just moving to a different day! That means the NEXT challenge will begin on January 1st!
  3. The Winner(s) will be announced the day after the new challenge begins!
  4. Instead of announcing a TOP PICK every month I’ll feature one “Gallery Stand Out” each week on Wednesday

Now, on to the current challenge…..Today I’m sharing two different ways to create hot chocolate pockets for gifting to those in your card-making club, your Bible study group, your co-workers, or just a sweet friend who needs a little pick-me-up!

This first pocket is made just like a greeting card. Here’s how I put it together:

  • Inside I created a pocket using a white piece of card-stock embossed with the Knitted folder and cut diagnoally
  • I embellished the corner with greens cut from Holiday Greens Thinlits (Tim Holtz), another snowflake, and a big pearl

To create my second pocket I:

To decorate my pocket I:

I created a tiny tag to tuck into the pocket using the Create a Flake dies, light blue burlap string, and a sentiment from Winter Wonders (All Night Media) stamped in Broken China Distress Oxide

Now it’s your turn to share your creativity with us!

Here’s how our challenges work:

  • Create ANY new project using products from companies  CropStop carries in the store. It’s ok if you didn’t buy it from us, and also fine if it’s a product we don’t currently have it in stock as long as it’s from one of the companies we carry!
  • Please, no back-linking old projects.
  • Limit five (5) entries per challenge.
  • Link your project here, link back to this post, and mention the CropStop Challenge in your post.
  • We’ll choose a random Winner (or two if we reach 100 links) to receive a prize from the CropStop Store!

Thanks so much for linking up with us, we look forward to seeing all your great entries this month. Grab our badge and help us spread the word that CropStop is a great place to play along!

    These are lovely. What a fun idea and perfect for a thoughtful little gift with the xmas card. Hugz

  4. I love what you’ve done with both of these………I would never have thought to cut a snowflake out of red paper (I immediately gravitate to white but love the red). Gorgeous ribbon and embossing.

    These are darling little gifts! I love that knitted folder!! Wouldn’t it be cool if once in a while real snowflakes came in colors?!!

  8. Oh wow these are so cool, love the embossing on both, the embossing on the card goes neat with the paper and love the layering on the snowflakes, those pearls on the pocket are a great touch!! The candy cane is sweet with it also!
