Let’s Ring in the New Year Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our New Year Blog Hop! We are so happy you are here to ring in the New Year with us! If you just came from Lisa at A Mermaid’s Crafts you are in the right place! If you just stumbled upon our blog hop you can start at the beginning with Holly from Ribbons & Glue.
By now you know that we are making a project with something new. Well, I just got a Silhouette Cameo and so the choice was obvious for me as to what I wanted to use. I absolutely love my new toy! It is fabulous! It cuts precisely and I love all the different cuts! Here is what I made…


I found this idea here and knew I just had to make one!



I just used this cut, ball small mason jars, marshmallows, cocoa mix, and crushed candy canes. I put hot glue on the lids and made a stack. For some reason the eyes and mouth did not cut so I decided to use buttons for eyes and have no mouth. I also used metallic silver hot glue to add snow embellishments…..which I am going to give away to one lucky hopper! + some Martha Stewart goodies!

      Arin…I know right? I found them online, but never ordered them and wanted to…then I saw them at Hobby Lobby randomly in the hot glue section! I’m going to use them to put on the back of letters to seal them and then use a stamp of sorts….like wax sealing…kind of;) Happy New Year Friend! Smiles, Jill

  5. Shelly says:

    • Jill says:

      I know the things you can find in Hobby Lobby! I’m surprised I found it…my little sweetheart wasn’t having too much fun in Hobby Lobby that day so it was a quick trip! It was like the glue was calling to me or something…I didn’t even mean to go down that aisle and then there it was! So fun! Thanks for participating in the hop! I love that your aunts are hopping too! Say Hi for me;) Happy Happy New Year! Smiles, Jill
