Welcome to Addicted 2 Scrapping Design Team 
2012 New Years Blog Hop. 

If you are joining me from Canica's blog at:
then you are in the right place.

If you happened across my blog and would like to 
play along in our fun hop, you can go to
Live Love Papercrafting at:
and start at the beginning.
 For todays hop I made a very simple New Years 
card. The card base is 6x6 and the black 
background was cut 1/4 inch smaller. I cut 
the 2012 out using the Cindy Loo Cricut 
cartridge at 2 1/4 inches. Added the white 
ribbon and a little bling and my card was 
 I call these "frizzles".  My sister saw something
like these at a store a few weeks ago and she
decided to make the silver ones.  I Thought "I have 
lots of color pieces of the garland at home" So I 
made my own colorful ones. They are so easy 
to make. Now that Christmas is over go to the 
store and look for the tinsel like garland.  Cut 
it in to 4 to 5 inch strips. Get out your skewers 
and cut them down to size. Now comes the hot 
glue gun. Put a dab of glue on the end of the 
stick and start to roll till you get to the end. I 
found that slow and steady was the best way to 
get them to be fluffy. I would have to say our 
homemade "frizzles" look better than the ones at 
the store and they were a lot cheaper.
 You may ask what are "frizzles" used for well,
to dress up your New Years drinks of course.
I hope you have a fantastic and safe New Year.

I have decided to have a surprise Blog Hop
prize for our first Blog Hop as a Design

Sweet Wishes~Sharon
