But it's "NOT" Christmas Blog Hop


Don't you just love a die that does double duty?  We thought so!  Today we're are having a blog hop to show you how the dies in The Charming Christmas Collection can be used year round; after all, it's not Christmas.  No worries, Christmas is coming and we'll press A Charming Christmas back into service this year but in the meantime, please join us for some year-round inspiration and a giveaway at the bottom of the post.

It's Not Christmas but About A Charming Christmas

Becca designed A Charming Christmas with lovely romantic frames and shapes and with charms.  Leave the charms in the package and you have a lovely 'everyday' die that is begging to be used all year round.  Hop around with us as we reintroduce you to the non-Christmas side of A Charming Christmas.

My Projects For Today.

****The die I'm showing today is S5-380 Snowflake Doily Etched Dies.

                   Shapeabilities Charming Snowflake Doily Etched Dies A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken


For my card today, I first adhered Adoria Square Etched Dies to the base of my card. I then die cut the large Doily out in cream and light pink cardstock. I also cut out just the outer Doily Die in gold poster board to add behind the cream colored die cut. I then added the pink Doily, off center, over the cream one using some foam dots. I then finished it off with some ribbon, flowers and pearls.


Thank you for having a special look at the versatility of the dies in The Charming Christmas Collection.  As a part of our hop we're giving away an Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month from a previous month - based on availability. 

Leave a comment on each blog by May 24th at midnight and on May 25th, Becca will randomly pick and publish the winner.  We encourage all of our international friends to participate!  The randomly selected names will be announced on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog on May 25th.  (All giveaways for this hop are managed by and the responsibility of Amazing Paper Grace).

If your name is selected, simply claim it within 2 weeks of the announcement by sending your address through the form under the Contact Tab on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.  There won’t be a reply back but if you leave your choice, we’ll get it, I promise.   The dies will be mailed out from Amazing Paper Grace.

2020.05.19酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容北市酒店、舞廳準備復業,副市長黃珊珊18日晚間與我在酒店上班的日子業者在北市警中山分局舉辦酒店打工說明會,她表示,暫停營業幾個禮拜以來,相信酒店小姐一定有S?都很辛苦,顧防疫也要顧民生經濟,「遺憾中央紓困沒有想到各位」,黃指出 八大行業是哪八種行業呢?,申請復業前,公安消防安檢必須合格、完成職場須知 【酒店PT 】實名制及管理專人受訓。市府今晚在中山分局舉辦酒店、舞廳復業申請事項說明會,黃珊珊致詞時表示,幾個禮拜以來,相信大家都很辛苦,大家都很關心酒店、舞廳何時解封,市府在研議中央規範發現要保持室內1.5公尺社交距離、梅花座,做起來很困難,所以想出實務上可執行且簡單的標準。黃珊珊指出,復業基本要求要包括公安檢查,很多業者都檢查過,會再做一次安檢,營業場所防疫作為,須單純化出入口、量體溫,另希望做到實名制,市府提供手機實名制APP由業者管理員讓客人做登記,掃描身分證條碼上傳雲端。她說,今天聽完大家的意見,明天市府會有公告,市府沒有要業者做到社交距離,因為做不到,也沒人力稽查,所以業者提出申請後,立刻排定公安檢查、APP訓練課程,確定可做到實名制,就能陸續復業。黃珊珊強調,實名制用意是在發生問題時可找到人,她了解業者擔心客人恐怕不願意實名制,但市府保證不會洩漏個資,業者也不會有任何資料,只有發生需要疫調或犯罪行為時,才會依《個資法》調閱資料。她還說,市民要顧防疫也要顧民生經濟,「遺憾中央紓困沒有想到各位」,希望大家在北市能安居樂業,讓大家正常生活、工作。會後,黃珊珊說,與業者達成共識,明天會公告申請方式,完成安檢、落實實名制及人員訓練後就可復業,最快這周四解封,她強調,一旦被抓到3次違規,包括客人沒有實名制,就勒令停業1個月。
