Handmade for Christmas Hero Arts Blog Hop




Hello! Today the Hero Arts Design team is showing off some Christmas goodness using the new products from the 2014 catalog. I used Stamp & Cuts Small Joy Tags and coordinating die. The cool thing is that the die comes with the set, so you are ready to go!
