Handmade Holidays 2014 Hop Logo

Welcome to the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We’ve gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can “hop” from one blog to another to check them all out.

Hello! Tami Sanders here with a gift idea for the holidays to share with you.

I used the Vintage Plaque from Walnut Hollow, a die and embossing folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs and adhesives from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives  along with Mix’d Media Inx®, Izink, ColorBox® Stylus & Tips and the ColorBox® Color Blender from Clearsnap to create this Memo Board…

I put together a Snapguide that shows how to make this project step-by-step with both photos and written directions to make it easy for you to make it yourself! just click the link below to get started – even a complete supply list is included…

    Love this project! It is great when a memo board can be a piece of art in a space and not just a place to put your to do list.
