Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 1. This hop will take place November 24th through December 5th and the new postings each day will be posted by 8am eastern standard time. This hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way of creating all of those beautiful Christmas project. This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards, and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed and maybe even be inspired to create something using a new technique that you have never tried. There will be a new project posted each and every day by all the wonderful amazing ladies in this hop. Also each day we will have a guest designer or two for you to visit.

You should have arrived from Pam's blog if not you can start at Lisa's blog or the entire line up at the bottom of the page.

I am so excited about the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! I started this month by completing my Kiwi Lane Design Team post.  I used a 6x6 Authentique paper pad and a matching component sheet.  You can see my Kiwi Lane DT post for the first 3 projects with the Authentique paper.  I was looking at the rest of this paper pad and said I just want to use it all up and have no scraps left.  So I went with it!  I will throw in some other projects I have worked on but you will be seeing how many projects one can make out of a 6x6 pad of paper.  I thought it was an interesting experiment.

So this side step card is project #4. 

I have had this mismatched Stampin Up stamp for a while but just got the awesome embossing powder!  It went great with my satin reindeer ribbon!
