In December you can ROCK THE BLOCK!

Edited 12/20 to add deep urls for links.
This month- along with over 30 other consultants- I am previewing a BRAND NEW PRODUCT from the Spring/Summer Idea Book- some fun looking My Creations blocks.  From Dec. 19, 2011-Jan 31, 2012- you too can purchase this awesome new product.  During this preview period - when you purchase $25 of product from the Autumn/ winter Idea Book you can add this special new product to your order for only $15.  The most incredible part?  Dec. 19-Jan 31 that $15 purchase INCLUDES a Limited Edition E size stamp set (which means the stamps alone are valued at $29.95!!)

When the new Spring/Summer catalog goes live February 1st- the stamp set will NOT be in there...  it is strictly available with the Rock the Block special till Jan. 31st.  The My Creations blocks will retail for $14.95 all by their lonesome! 

So... myself and over 30 other consultants are here to show you why you NEED this set!

If you've come from Kathleen's blog- you are headed in the right direction.. if not- no worries- click the link at the bottom of this post to visit the next stop on the hop and you should circle clear around the hop.

So... after all of that rambling- here's what you care about... photos!

**I designed these projects to display at an upcoming bridal show in mid-January.  I wish I was still this skinny!  LOL... 9.5 years and 2 kids later.... ahhhh.

Shadow box:
Tray from My Creations Blocks set
Roxie Level 2 paper pack
Bling Asst.
Mocha Opaques
Pearl Opaques
Red Designer Ribbon Collection

I used the Cricit Art Philosophy cartridge to cut my roses... LOVE that cartridge. 

I decided to use my blocks for a "countdown calendar"  It's generic enough to use for birthdays, holidays and any other special occassion you just can't wait for.  The diamond and polka dot paper patterns are stamped with stamps from the exclusive stamp set that comes with the Rock The Block promotion.

The set comes with 9 blocks in all.  Because the blocks only have 6 sides... I used the last two to stamp 7,8,9 and 0.  You can see some blank sides... I am still finishing them up but check out the last photo.

I will be using "LOVE"  "families are building blocks of love",  and You +Me= Love Squared. to finish off the last two blocks.  The letters and numbers were also cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I didn't add any embellishments... which was really hard... but they need to lay flat and that way they have extended use beyond just one "countdown event"

I hope you'll join me in hopping around to check out the other projects... I am really excited to see what others have done with this set.

Head over to Georgia's blog to see the next idea posted!

In the meantime... if you see something you'd like to order- send me an e-mail or order from my website.  Either way- you won't be sorry!

After seeing how you used Roxie on this project, I like it a lot more than I did before! Now I have an idea for my sister's birthday next year! Fantastic job!
