Stamp Simply Christmas BLOG HOP and SALE!

Welcome to the Stamp Simply Christmas Blog Hop and Sale.
More products means more space needed in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! Some of the Christmas items currently in stock are being offered at reduced prices to clear those shelves. Wait till you see what the Design Team has created to inspire you in the creation of your Christmas projects today! With papers and other items in use being offered at SALE prices, what better time to stock up than now! Sale prices are in effect while current inventory lasts -- when it's gone, it's gone!
I'm going Beyond the page today with this Kaisercraft Advent creation! I made this for our granddaughter's first Christmas! All papers used are K&Company's YULETIDE 12 x 12 paper pad! Once the papers were adhered I painted the edges with white acrylic paint and then slightly sanded the edges before attaching my stamped numbers.

This Beyond the Page MDF Advent Calendar by Kaisercraft measures 13" x 13" once assembled. It comes with chipboard numbers (I chose to stamp my numbers and name for the center) and 24 box drawers ready to be decorated and assembled into shape. This Advent Calender can be decorated in a traditional theme with the drawers with treats for the Christmas countdown OR go in an entirely different direction, creating a project with any other theme to be used for storing & organizing those tiny treasures.

There is mystery blog candy to be won too! All the Christmas goodies in the first picture of this post is what you could win! Just leave a comment on each of the designer's blog post for a chance. We do not know what blog has the mystery candy, so you raise your odds of winning if you leave a comment on each blog! The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. EST on Monday, August 22 & will be posted on Sharon's blog Monday night or Tuesday. Good Luck!

  • Silk ribbons are found HERE.
  • The velvet zig zag ribbon adds a wonderful finishing touch around the entire box in addition to the inset and is found HERE.
