However, to improve your chances of winning one of the giveaways, you can:

a. Create a project (card, layout, OTP, something paper-y) inspired by the challenges and upload it to the event page. Doing this, you’ll receive SIX entries into the giveaway draw. (Make sure you tell us which challenges you used!)
b. Comment on a project on the event page, and you’ll receive another one entry into the giveaway draw.

What are the challenges?
(You can use the challenge number to let us know–just click on the image to see
the challenge number in the bottom right-hand corner.)

Do the projects have to be Christmas-related?
Unless you’re using challenge 12 (“Must be Xmas-y”), no.
The hop and crop are open until December 20 so you have plenty of time to join in.

 So today I'm sharing Jane Tregenza's amazing Christmas Box.

This project is just stunning and would make a gorgeous addition to your Christmas table.

Jane has used Graphic 45 paper - of course - and a custom designed box from Imaginarium Designs.

Creating a project like this can be a little daunting but here are a few great tips for you

 * Use a good adhesive for adhering your paper to the chipboard - stay away from glue as it will bubble and cheap tape just wont go the distance! We use X-Press Grafx tape
* Inking around the edges of all the papers and the sides of the box takes away that freshly cut look - we use Dark Brown Chalk ink in a cats eye for best results
*Fussy cutting your papers can be a pain but use good quality scissors and as you cut, turn your papers rather than your hand and you'll find this much easier and use a craft knife to get into the hard spots!


Jane and Natalie May have quite a few kits available for sale online ... head over and have a look
Plus we have Australia's biggest range of Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget to head over to Maya Road 
tomorrow to continue on this great Blog Hop!
