Fancy Fold Blog Hop with Imagine That Digistamp

Happy Thursday crafters!!  Today we are doing something a li'l bit different in place of our usual "Thursday Inspiration" here on our blog.  Our team invites you to hop along to each of our blogs for some "Fancy Fold" inspiration using Imagine That Digistamps!    We hope you will be inspired to try some of these card folds, treat boxes or other 3D projects which is perfect timing with Christmas right around the corner!

Kris will start off this hop with two "fancy fold" projects and links to the tutorials so YOU can try it if you'd like :)   Be sure to scroll down to see the whole hop list as one blog will include a FREE kit & tutorial for everyone!

My first project is a Pop Up Book Card using this month's Featured Set, Reindeer Carols (FREE to those who link up using any "Imagine That Digistamp") for the front, and I used a sentiment from White Christmas on the inside.  This look like a regular square card, but the surprise is on the inside...

Inside pops up like a book!

and for my 2nd project, I used my Envelope Punch Board to make a Christmas Cracker 
For the tag, (sorry it's a bit blurry) I used the new Scallop Circle Sentiments

 I got 4 of these mini candybars inside this li'l gift box :)  SWEET!

Who's the 'Cherry on Top' for October?

Before we start today's post, on behalf of all of us at Imagine That Digistamp, 
we just wanted to take a moment and say thank you to the men and woman
who put their lives on the line to keep us safe in our respective countries around the world. 
We also want to pause for a moment to honour all those 
who've laid down their lives so that we may live safe and free.
Your sacrifices will never be forgotten.
Hello everyone! It is time to announce the Cherry on Top Awardee from our October Link Up. We were pleased to see a total of 30 projects linked up from October 7th to November 3rd, with over one third of the projects using images from Imagine That Digistamp. We are always immensely happy to see Kristy's images in action. We hope that you will continue to join us and spread the word of our little Creative Playground to all your friends, followers and readers.

Each month, if you link up ANY creation using an Imagine That Digistamp image (and following our other rules), you will receive the featured set for that month for free, emailed to you! All those eligible to receive the Featured Set from October have now been emailed their gift. If you thought you had linked up using an image from Imagine That Digistamp in your project, but didn't receive the Featured Set, please fill out the comment form found at the bottom of the sidebar and Kristy will check into it for you.

ALL entries abiding by the rules also have an opportunity to be chosen by one of our DT Members as a Cherry on Top Awardee, earning that person a $10 gift code to the store. Right now it is time to find out who that lucky person is from October's challenge. The honouree of this award is chosen by one of our team members as their favourite pick. This time around it is Sandy's turn! Let's take a peek at who she chose...

Here are Sandy's thoughts on her favourite creation...
"I absolutely love this card, the fact that it moves is so amazing!  And the shadowing of the plane is great!  The beautiful sky/clouds background is perfect as well.... just an all around stunning card!"

Cass, as the Cherry on Top Awardee of our challenge, you have won a $10.00 gift certificate to the store and the following cute badge for your blog...

Please email me (Lisa) at decossesdynamitedoodles {at} yahoo {dot} ca (don't forget to replace the 'at' and 'dot' with the appropriate symbols), with the subject heading "ITD October Link Up Winner", so I can email you a gift certificate to the store. Please be sure to claim your prize by December 3rd or it will be forfeit.  Now if you haven't heard back from me within one week, please try again. Lately, cyberspace has been eating some of the messages sent to me.
