Here is the order of the hop so you don't get lost along the way:

Are you ready for some Cutting Cafe and Christmas inspiration?  This is a digital layout that I created for the Blog Hop.  I'll tell you how I did it in a minute.

This 6" x 4" "layout" is actually a photograph that will go inside the Christmas cards I send out this year.   

I used Echo Park 'Tis The Season for my background and put the picture on black paper to make it really stand out.  I used several of the Cutting Cafe sentiments like journaling strips.   Here are some close-up photographs of the sentiments.

I just love the font on this sentiment and used it as a "title".

Now all I have to do is upload this to Walgreen's and have as many 4 x 6 photographs printed out as I need.  Easy peasy.

  Don't forget to leave a comment and become a follower (if you're not already).  I hope to see you over in the Sketches4All Forum, too!!  Remember, there are some awesome prizes up for grabs!!

Now it's time to hop on over to Giorgia's blog
