MCT 12 Days of Christmas! Day 1

December has arrived and so has our My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas festivities! Get ready for 12 fun-filled days jam packed with MCT holiday inspiration, ideas and yes--lots of giveaways! Be sure to comment on all of the DT members blogs to be in the running for some MCT goodies! If you arrived here from LeAnne's blog then you are headed in the right direction! If NOT, please start at Emma's blog HERE!

To kick off day 1 of our Christmas event, I made these quick and easy gift card holders, which come in very handy throughout this busy season! The gift card holder die, x-large label die and scalloped circle/stitched circle dies make for fast production and Emma's stamp sets All Around Christmas and X-Large Label Borders coordinate perfectly--LOVE it! I used some old SU! holiday paper and inks in Real Read and Old Olive, some white cotton trim and a bling embellishment to finish each holder.  The white x-large label was cuttled with Divine Swirls. 
***12 Days of Christmas Give Away Alert***
To qualify for ALL the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tues, Dec 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S!

william smith said...

When making a decision about placing your belongings in storage, it's important to consider how long you plan to utilize the storage facility before choosing a location. The last thing you want to have to deal with is taking your items out of a unit only to find that they have gotten damaged during the time they were in storage. Some storage facilities are designed to store items securely for an extended period of time, but others are only appropriate for short term storage.
