Its the most wonderful time of the year!! Oh, how I love Christmas and the latest special issue from Paper Crafts Magazine, Holiday Cards & More Vol. 5 has put me in the spirit!! The issue is available now and you can pick yours up HERE.

I am thrilled to have quite a few cards in this issue. Every project in this issue is amazing and I am quite honored to be in it! Making Christmas projects always brings back such wonderful memories for me. My family has traditions that go back to when my dad was born. Its truly amazing to see all my cousin’s children, along with my little man, participating in those same traditions. A big part of those memories include music. And singing my lungs out to Christmas music in July, while working on this call, definitely inspires me. :)

PC HCM Blog Hop Gift Bag

For today, we were all given directions to use to create a unique project, especially for this hop. You can download the directions for the bag I used today, HERE. You can see the original project in the issue: Holiday Plaid Gift Bag (p. 104) by Becky Olsen. This is a cute and easy to make bag. Its just perfect for a sleeve of golf balls, which in my family is very handy for the holidays! :)

PC HCM Blog Hop Gift Bag CU Tag

The tag on the front was made with Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament 2010 and a stamp from Hero Arts, from the clear set, Get Merry.

this is so much fun!!! great project you got there!

Lindsay said...

This is beautiful Kimberly! I love way too many Christmas songs to pick a fav!

Amy said...

Beautiful! My fav song is Jingle Bell Rock b/c it's such a fun tune!

Chris Cross said...

Project project is stunning! My favorite holiday song is Silent Night. It can bring tears to my eyes!

Karen said...

just delightful...my fav song is Jingle bells....

Jennifer Rzasa said...

My favorite Christmas song is the Christmas Song ("chestnuts roasting..."). 3 years ago, the 5th grade chorus I was conducting sang a beautiful arrangement of it. They (and I!) worked so hard the first few months of school to prepare for the concert, and now I think of them every time I hear it on the radio at Christmastime.

Angela said...

Oh, I love the dies and that burlap-y ribbon you used! I love all the traditional carols, but my fave non-traditional song is "Everybody's Waitin' for the Man with the Bag" -- it's loungy and fun!

tape said...

White Christmas... get chills down my spine when listening, every time!

craftymom205 said...

Love your box. I have this mag and it is great.

Ohhh Snap said...

Beautiful bag! TFS! :D.

My favorite carol is usually "We Need a Little Christmas", but I'm also terribly fond of Good King Wenselas, and God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen (which was my Dad's pick when I was growing up).

mommyabbytommy said...

Love the bag!!

There are so many wonderful songs! My favorite is "The Night Before Christmas" by Amy Grant. It just brings back so many memories of sitting around, prepping and singing with my sisters and my mom!

Karen said...

Another stunning bag! What a great blog hop. One of my favorite songs aside from the traditional carols is James Taylor's Some Children See Him.

Samantha said...

Without a doubt, "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives. Such happy memories of dancing with my grandfather.

Second choice would be "I'm Mr. White Christmas" from The Year Without a Santa Claus".

Or maybe the "Little Drummer Boy" which makes me cry every time.

Diane said...

So very gorgeous and elegant...this has class!!! My favorite adult song is Silent Night...so peaceful to hear on Christmas Eve...but for the kiddies... have always loved Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer...cuz I can sing along (if thats what you want to call it...lol)...thanks!!

Connie said...

Love your bag- elegant - It would be a gift in itself!! Favorite song is impossible to name - I LOVE Christmas music. I start it in Nov on THanksgiving and never tire of it. Oh Holy Night is a top five pick though!

Yelowflower said...

Silent Night...it makes me think of Christ as a child and the calm that he brings to all who believe.

Alyssa B said...

silver bells by Bing Crosby, his deep voice makes me laugh!!

Amber said...

Beautiful! I love O Come Let Us Adore Him!!

Kelly said...

"O Holy Night" gets me every time! Great project, too!

andie said...

SANTA BABY!!!! thats my favorite and it makes me happy just to think about it! :0)

andie said...

i looooove that great big bow on your project. very beautiful! xoxo andie...

kathy/North Carolina said...

The color combo on this project is so fresh and pretty! Love the berries, too. My favorite Christmas song....hmmmmmmm....That's a hard one. Probably anything by Mannheim Steamroller or the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. How's that for untradtional? For traditional, gotta love Joy to the World because of the message, the melody and the way it just makes ya feel happy.

Ellie A. said...

Call me silly but I love "Jingle Bells" and its just because that is the first song all my kids seem to have learned first and what is better then hearing your baby singing & each of them has given me a different version of them although the 2 oldest just look at me and swear they never sang those sangs that way...YES They did and I loved every minute of it Ha. This year can't wait to hear my 3 year old version!

Jenny McGee said...

Hmm, I like a lot of them. But, I think my favorite is The First Noel. Thanks, love your project too.

Kristin said...

Love the bow on your bag! I love the song 'Santa Baby'. It reminds me of a friend of mine that passed away about 7 years ago. It was his favorite and when we were at work, we would stop what we were doing, then dance and sing to it.

Sue Ann said...

Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire ........ jack Frost nipping at your nose ....... these were the words at the moment my Emma was born. My doc was so cool and she had Christmas music playing during delivery ..... I get all emotional every time I hear this song!!

And this project is AMAZING!!!! I lovet he ribbon and berries!!!

Bonnie said...

beautiful bag. LOVE that ornament!!!

Barbara said...

Lovely bag. I like Silent Night, it just seems to bring peace to me.

smahrty said...

o holy nite is one of my fave songs. your bag is so cute, love the ornament layered on front.

Carla (cmsuto) said...

Beautiful gift bag! I love the layered ornaments and the bow! My favorite song is O Holy Night. It became my favorite after hearing Jewel's version on her Christmas album.

liliput said...

i love "Have yourself a little Merry Christmas" song.. i love the meaning of the song and the melody :)

lisa808 said...

Such a pretty gift bag--love the layered ornaments. My favorite Christmas song? That's a tough one as I like so many. I guess I would say Jingle Bells because it is so upbeat and cheerful.

Scrappywonder said...

my fav carol is SILVER BELLS, for me, it just sums Christmas up... however, if I'm being goofy the "Grandma got run over by a reindeer"... tfs, your lovely bag!! R ;)

Shanon said...

I love so many Christmas songs but my favorie is Oh Holy Night, especially when Josh Groban sings it. I have always been touch by the song and the meaning of it all.

artfulwhimsies said...

I love silent night, as it holds so much meaning and serenity for me.

Andi (RrlScrapGal) said...

Silent Night... makes me cry, every single time.. A happy cry.

Super cute project!

Christina said...

I love the ornament tag and big bow you used on this little gift bag! My absolute favorite Christmas song is "O Holy Night", but a more upbeat song that I love is Nat King Cole's "I Saw Three Ships".

Jennie said...

This is beautiful and LOVE that bow! My favorite Christmas song is White Christmas. We watch the movie every year with our kids and love the scene when the backdrop of the set opens to freshly falling snow in the movie. So idyllic...

Hannah said...

Oh what a lovely idea to use the ornament shape as part of the gift bag! So festive and brilliant!

Meghann said...

My favorite Christmas song is "O Holy Night."

Karen said...

So Pretty. I love the mix of the formal pattern and ornament with a less formal bow. I am humming White Christmas as a peek at all the fabulous projects.

Monika/Buzsy said...

Such a pretty gift bag. LOVE the ornament dies you used! I think my all time favorite holiday song is Silent Night. TFS!

ScrapMomOf2 said...

My favorite holiday song is Silent Night! I love it ever since I was a little girl. One year, my dad and I shopped at K-Mart for a gift for my mom, and I picked out this plastic organ music box with angels on it, and it plays Silent Night! My mom and dad still have that inexpensive plastic music box, and I love seeing it out in their home every holiday season! I even snapped a pic of it last year, and put it in my December Daily album! I'm so glad I did! LOVE your gift bag! Just gorgeous!

Kelly said...

My favorite Christmas song is "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen". I am not sure WHY this is my favorite song though... it has just always been. I love the melody. Another favorite is SheDaisy's version of "Deck the Halls"

Vickie said...

I love 'Oh Holy Night'. Beautiful work.

Pam said...

Beautiful project - love your choices of supplies. My favorite Christmas song is probably Silent Night. It makes me feel at peace.

judybob3 said...

I don't really have a favorite Christmas song........I love them ALL!! :) They just make me feel good.

Belinda said...

Kimberly, this is lovely! Love the fun use of the ornaments and the fun berry sprig and the absolutely fun ribbon!

Migdalia Roman said...

The ribbon!!!!!! super

Agata said...

Lovely box! I love the "Merry Christmas to you" as sang by Nat King Cole. I find this melody very beautiful and words are very touching. Thanks for a chance to win!

Ally said...

I absolutely love that ribbon! One of my favorite holiday songs is Walking in a Winter Wonderland, reminds me of all the fun things in winter and not just the cold & iciness, lol!!

Cheryl said...

Your bag is so pretty! I love Christmas music. We listen to it periodically throughout the year in our house. Hubby used to be in music ministry, so he was accustomed to listening to and choosing Christmas music in September . . . we still listen even though we don't have to choose! I love "O Holy Night" because it speaks so clearly of the meaning of Christmas, and also because it is used for the lighting of the great trees (NYC and Atlanta). The tree lighting is something we really enjoy in our family.

scarthur said...

I love White Christmas (song and movie) sung by Bing Crosby! I actually love so many songs, but this one came to mind!

Dru said...

Love the natural look of this gift bag - very pretty! I love all Christmas music, but if I have to pick one it would probably be "White Christmas" - we lived in a very warm area, never any snow and all the pictures and movies depicting a white Christmas always looked so pretty and inviting and Christmasy! Now I live in an area that usually produces a white Christmas and it is everything I dreamed of as a little girl.

Vera W. Yates (Ling) said...

Beautiful!! My all time favorite song would be Do They Know It's Christmas" written by Bob Geldof. Love the message of the song. I think it's a powerful song.

Legojenta said...

Oh - pretty! Thanks for sharing =)

{VICKI} said...

My favorite song is "I only want you for christmas' by alan jackson---It's fun to sing along too

Pamm said...

It is so hard to pick a fav...Little Drummer Boy sung by Bing Crosby, Chestnuts Roasting on an open Fire by Nat King Cole....the list goes on and on!

catnap said...

I love your combination of textures, patterns and shapes. Beautiful box. God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman. No idea why; just happens to be a favorite.

Jan Garber said...

It's impossible to pick just one song! What would the holidays be without a bit of the serious and the silly? I guess I would have to say Little Drummer Boy always makes me smile! Your bow is gorgeous on the box, and the papers rich!

Jamie said...

I love your project!! Ornaments are one of my favorite things.. My favorite Christmas song is Jingle Bells! The reason is because I can remember all the words.

Latisha said...

most beautiful Kimberly!!!
love this!
xoxo

kathy e said...

tampatha said...

Great project! I love that bow!
My favorite Christmas song is Blue Christmas by Elvis..I just love his voice when he's singing that!

sharon g said...

Favorite Christmas song? Maybe Silent Night. Not very original, but it's all about what it's all about: the birth of Jesus, my Savior.

Marisa said...

Gorgeously done! Love the bow and layered nesties on the sentiment panel. Love so many Christmas carols it's hard to choose. One of my favorite is O Holy Night.

Bobbi-Lynn said...

Wow, that looks amazing!! Love the elements to this

Kathleen said...

The bag is beautiful - especially love the tag! So elegant.

I have a playlist of christmas cds that I love to put on random rotation and play throughout the holidays. Lots of artists from many genres so it doesn't get tiring.

Romaine said...

The Judds singing "What child is this?"; something about it creeps cozily into my heart...

Debbie said...

Super gorgeous! Very classy!

tlgirl353 said...

Your project is gorgeous! My favorite song is "O Holy Night".

Debbie said...

Oh and my all time favorite Chrismas song is Oh Holy Night sung by Josh Groban. It gives me goosbumps because its the true meaning of Christmas.

Laura - The Stampin' Soldier said...

I think the song is called the Christmas Song, but I'm not sure now. "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." Sheesh! Now, I'm gonna have to Google that to find out... :-)

Kalyber said...

what a beautiful box, love the spellbinders die. Favorite Christmas songs, hmm. I love the song "Pretty Little Baby Boy" from the CD Handel's Messiah A Joyful Celebration. It's a funkified version and I sang it a lot when my son was born - a month before Christmas. My 7 year old loves "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas" from the Dr. Demento collection. We sing it year round.

Carol said...

Love your project! My favorite Christmas song is from Alabama called Angels Among Us. It reminds me of my dear Mother who I lost a year ago.

crittercrafts said...

My favorite songs are Silent Night and Joy to The World. Great bag I love the big and fluffy bow on the top.

jessijewels said...

lovely work!!!
for christmas songs... hmmm, there are so many that i love that it's hard to pick. the one that came to mind first is Blue Christmas by Elvis. it's one i can sing along to cuz i know all the words. :) thanks!

CindyP said...

Love your bag Kimberly, that bow is such a pretty touch. Favorite song - I saw Momma kissing Santa Claus :)

debm said...

Awesome project!!! I would have to say my favourite Christmas song is O Holy Night!! The tune and the words just bring about a peaceful calm when I hear it and that is something that is needed that time of the year!

Glenda said...

Your project is beautiful! Love it!

There are so many songs that I love... but I always laugh at the Chanukah Song by Adam Sandler.

Linda said...

Love your project! Can't wait to get hopping. Before I do, though, I want to share my favorite Christmas carol. It is O Come All Ye Faithful. I think that song just encompasses what Christmas is all about and I also love it that my son plays it on his trumpet at Christmas Eve mass.

Pat said...

Frosty the Snowman...it's upbeat and happy! Love your gift box...so absolutely beautiful!

ChocolateDrop said...

very cute for a placeholder at the dinner table for the christmas dinner!!!!! love this!

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

This is GORGEOUS! I love the jute!

My favorite Christmas song is Last Christmas by Wham! I mean, come on! It always makes me smile.

marianne-g said...

Frosty the snowman is my favorite. Maybe because I've never had snow for the holidays, or ever. Love your gift box by the way.

Julia said...

Love Holly Jolly Chrismas because it is...well, Jolly! :)

Renee said...

Beautiful bag!
Favorite Christmas song...? That's hard because it depends on my mood. It could be White Christmas (Bing Crosby only, please) Santa Baby (again, only Eartha Kitt), Santa's Beard (The Beach Boys) or Elton John Step Into Christmas, just to name a few. Just thinking about them...I think I'm going to go put on some Holiday jingles!

melissa.flieg said...

My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night because it's just so beautiful.

stephanie_j_gaston said...

love the natural colors of this project! one of our family traditions is watching christmas vacation, so of course our favorite holiday song is melekalikimaka :D

Luana said...

GORGEOUS!!!!! TFS

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

Just lovely. Love the ornament tag!

see mary stamp said...

Gosh - it would be easier to list the Christmas songs I dislike than all the ones I like. My Christmas CD collection is larger than my rest of the year collection. Favorites include Hark the Herald Angels Sing (It's a Wonderful Life!), Oh Holy Night (beautiful hymn) Adeste Fidelis (memories of my Grandpa singing this), etc. etc. Fun question!

Jaclyn Miller said...

It's gotta be Jingle Bells; everyone knows it and can sing along!

naturecoastcrafter said...

My favortie holiday song is "o Holy Night"--it's a nostalgia song for me--I remember singing it in choir in 5th grade and how beautiful it made me feel.

gkwright said...

Thanks so much for sharing. Beautiful project. Favorite Christmas music is O Come All Ye Faithful. It is so uplifting and reminds me of the true meaning of the holiday.

theCook said...

My favorite Christmas song is "Stile Nacht" that I learnt in German lessons. I think you have the same translated as "silent night"

Toni G. said...

Love the holly berries on this bag, they make it pop! My favorite Christmas song is "I'll Be Home For Christmas". I love it in every version. My late uncle (who was like a dad to me) was in the army while I was growing up and he would always send me cards he made with that song wrote inside. So now whenever I hear it, it reminds me of him.

Kelly Massman said...

The little drummer boy song is my favorite!
Love your bag! It's over the top awesome!

cheryl (clee') said...

Gorgeous project - love the green with the earth-tone-texture with the pop of red!

Happy Stamper Bev said...

I love the Italian version of O Come All Ye Faithful...it is so joyous!!!

Marla said...

Just beautiful! My favorite Christmas song is probably the cover of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by the Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan.

Lorraine said...

Beautiful project and love your stories. I don't believe I've ever sung my lungs out to any Christmas song (LOL), but the Partridge Family's Christmas album was a staple in our home growing up (I know, I know - oldness, lol). Rocking aroung the Christmas tree was my fav on that album and I remember dancing & singing to it a LOT. Ah, memories.

NancyK said...

What a beautiful project! Love all the inspiration and chances to win!
There are so many holiday songs I love buy my favorite is Carol of the Bells, which really isn't a song, but an instrumental piece.

Stephanie R. said...

I love Christmas music also. You can't help to get into the Christmas spirit (even during hard times)when you hear amazing Christmas music. I play it before December even gets here and way into the new year. Thank you for sharing your talents.

TracyJ said...

Your box is gorgeous. My all time favorite Christmas song is Oh Holy Night. I listen to it year-round!

Emily Keaton said...

Super gift bag!! Favorite Christmas song?? Joy to the World--I just love singing it in harmony :)

Emily Branch said...

Ooooh!! I love the colors and the texture! My all time favorite Christmas song is "The Christmas Song!" So warm and cozy that song is to me

Jessica said...

My favorite Christmas song is the Carol of the Bells. It just makes me want to hum along! But I love them all. Thanks for sharing with us!

Anne said...

I have two favorite Christmas songs--"I'll be Home for Christmas" and "White Christmas." I love the nostalgia they both create when I hear them.

Nicky Hsu said...

My favorite will be Jingle Bell. This is our favorite "Deco the tree" song as well. I just love the jingles in the background. Always gives me smile.

Marcie S. said...

Gorgeous project! My favourite Christmas song is "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" by John Lennon...it just exemplifies peace, love and hope around the holiday time!

Manhattan Mandie said...

Love your project! I may have to use that to gift some golf balls to my FIL!

My favorite Christmas song is the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas song!

Denise said...

Your Christmas box is lovely. I love your beautiful ribbon.

Denise said...

Your Christmas box is lovely. I love your beautiful ribbon.

Becky Dunham said...

Cute bag - simple but elegant. Love the embellishments. I have a couple of favorite Chrismas songs - Oh Holy Night because it reminds of me of the reason for the season and makes me feel peaceful - and The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...) by Nat King Cole because it reminds me of being a child at Christmas time. Thanks for the cute ideas!

Erika M. said...

I absolutely love your creation! Favorite Christmas song - Frosty the Snowman!

Erika M. said...

I absolutely love your creation! Favorite Christmas song - Frosty the Snowman!

Tamara said...

O Holy Night is my favorite Christmas song. It is just a beautiful song!

Anja said...

beautifull bag.
I like "silent night" because it gives this warm, home feeling and it's so tradionional that I have to remember when I was a child

Cassie said...

Honestly...anything Elvis sings.
Cannot go wrong with Elvis.
...or Aaron Neville...Ave Maria is pure perfection.
I adore your project...the berries are beautiful!
=)

Cristina said...

Great project! Love that ribbon. It adds so much texture. My favorite Christmas song is Silver Bells. I have no idea why, but it makes me feel nostalgic and warm.

BeeLinda said...

Cute bag! I think my favorite would have to be Melekelikima(The Hawaiian Christmas Song) sung by Bing Crosby. Since grew up by the coast in CA I never new a white Christmas so I could identify with it....and its also fun to say Melekelikima too.

Fleursbydesign said...

Beautiful bag, one of my favorite Christmas songs (I have many) is Winter Wonderland by Phantom Planet

MorethanWordsCardDesign said...

oh man - my all time favorite Christmas song - but I love them all!! All I Want For Christmas Is You is great and I can't help but sing along at the top of my lungs. Christmas Shoes - that song can make me cry if I'm listening to it alone and picturing it all in my mind. White Christmas is fantastic but maybe that's because it's my favorite Christmas movie. I can't decide. I love them all from Bing Crosby to New Kids on the Block's Have a Funky, Funky Christmas!!

Dee Tollaksen said...

Lovely box, perfect color choices!

syrant said...

TOo many to choose from-perhaps O Holy Night.

Christi Snow said...

This is so elegant and beautiful! My favorite Christmas music...The Christmas Song (you know the one that starts "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire..." ) smiles...

gberry14 said...

My favorite christmas song is silent night-reminds of the real reason of christmas and all its beauty and joy!-L. Berry

Kimberly, your gift bag is beautiful! The bow and berries are AMAZING!
Fave song is~ I'll Be Home For Christmas because it tugs at my heart reminding me of our Service men and women.

Lin said...

Music is a huge part of Christmas for me, too! My favorite carol is Adeste Fidelis, gives me shivers every time.......a beautiful piece of music, either with or without the lyrics.

Your project is lovely - love that gorgeous bow and the berries!

Frozenstamper said...

Love that Spellbinder's Ornament die!
My all time favorite Christmas song would have to be "Come on Ring those Bell's" - Amy Grant

Erica Hettwer said...

White Christmas is my favorite because it reminds me of the movie and my mom and I will watch that whenever it comes on...even in July!! :)

Janet said...

Cute project. Mary Did You Know is my favorite song right now.

Janer

Kim said...

Great idea about the golf balls! They make into stockings every year. My favorite song; Little Drummer Boy. It was my grandmothers favorite, and when she got a record player (1966 or so) I wanted to get her the record for Christmas (I was 4-5); My mother went all over creation trying to find it for me! She played that song all year long. I finally got the Andy Williams CD that has it..it's my Christmas Stamping CD.

NLR said...

I love Christmas carols--all of them. But my favorite has to be the good old classic Silent Night. So sweet and simple. Thanks for sharing your beautiful project!

KellyG said...

Great project! Love all Christmas music, but I guess I would have to go with Santa Baby!

ntsisterz said...

"It's beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" is one of my all time favorites because you can sing it anywhere, any time!

silvia said...

Beautiful box!! My favorite christmas song is "Holly Jolly Christmas" but I love singing " I want a hippopotomus for Christmas"~

Scrapbookdoll said...

love the bag!
and my altime favorite song is white christmas, just because it brings me back to my childhood, i always watched the movie togheter with my mom

Debbie said...

Love this bag. The colors are wonderful together! Our favorite Christmas song is Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. My kids are grown and they still insist we sing it after Christmas dinner every year!

fran h said...

Love your take on the bag.
The colors are spectacular.
I love jingle bells becuase it is so upbeat and most everyone knows the words.

Fran Heupel

Angela said...

Jingle Bell Rock! I love watch my 3-yr old son dance to the tune!

Thanks for a chance to win some X'mas goodies.

AGohl said...

My favorite Christmas song is "What Child is This" - It is such a beautiful song and always brings home the true meaning of Christmas!

Beautiful bag and thanks for the chance to win!

Lisa Condreay said...

Beautiful project. Love the ribbon and paper.

onecraftymama said...

I don't think I can pick a single song - I will pick a single CD, though, Sarah McLachlan's Wintersong. I love her voice anyhow, and I love the mix of traditional carols and her own writing. THanks for the chance to win!

Meghann said...

I love "O Holy Night" because it is SO pretty! Awesome bag. Love that you used the Jillibean paper!

Jana said...

Beautiful creation! I love all Christmas music, and can't wait until Thanksgiving when the local radio station starts playing them 24/7. My all time favorite is the Bare Naked Ladies version of God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen with Sarah McLaughlin. And the kids and I always enjoy I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey...hilarious!

Madcap Frenzy (Morgaine to others) said...

What an adorable little bag! And as far as my favorite song, I love "Silent Night"...it's such a pretty song. :)

Jeni said...

What a cute box! I definately may have to make some of these if they fit a sleeve of golf balls perfectly because I've got lots of golfers on my list.

My favorite Christmas Song is Go Tell it on a Mountain. Not just a Christmas song but it's sung alot more around Christmas. This was my Grandfather's favorite song & he always belted it out in church. Now that he's gone, everytime I hear it, I think of him.

Geri said...

I just gotta go with Elvis Presley singing "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas"....the song and his voice are classics.

Anita Christine said...

great job..... so beautiful :)

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

My mom always played classical Christmas tunes, so I love the idea of the favorite songs, but without the words, great background music.

I love the big fluffy bow on top your pretty box. The tag is great. My all time fav song is sung by Bing Crosby and David Bowie and is a medly of the Little Drummer Boy and Peace on Earth. Thanks for a chance to win!

I love all Christmas songs! Fond memories of singing "When a Child is Born" as a duet with my sister, back when I was a missionary kid living in Papua New Guinea, no snow in sight!
Love the gift bag, Kim - that ribbon is great!

Mariana Grigsby said...

Great project!!! I don't think I have a favorite favorite Christmas song... Silent Night is the one I can remember perfectly and makes me have the Christmas spirit!

NatQuebec said...

what a nice bag ! My fav songs are all the ones of Christmas but in French as it's my mother tongue :-)

Beautiful creation! I love all Christmas music, and can't wait until Thanksgiving when the local radio station starts playing them 24/7. My all time favorite is the Bare Naked Ladies version of God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen with Sarah McLaughlin. And the kids and I always enjoy I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey...hilarious!

I love your bag! The bow is gorgeous!
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" & "Silver Bells" are the Christmas songs I find myself singing the most :)

This is just beautiful Kim! I have so many traditional favorites to pick just one, so I am going to name a non-traditional and that would be "Santa Baby" because it's fun and Cheerful and makes me happy!

Pamela said...

Silent Night has to be my all time favorite because it reminds me of that special quiet of sitting in church on Christmas eve.

I love the simple yet elegant design of your box. Perfect. Christmas song choice-Winter Wonderland.In my Dad's family Christmas celebration a quartet of my cousins would always sing it as part of the Christmas program. Some years the harmony was better than other years. LOL

Amanda M said...

this bag is very old time holidays...I LOVE IT! My favorite Christmas song is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" because just before my husband deployed to Iraq in Dec 07' ( also our daughter's first Christmas) he bought me a snow globe that played it. I'll always love that song most because of him. Thankfully he's home now to enjoy it with us.

A sleeve for golf balls is a great idea for sprucing up a stocking stuffer :)
As for my all time favorite Christmas song…I think it would have to be Mariah’s “All I want for Christmas”…love her and the song!!!

Kristy said...

I like the lime green and white. Great colors and project!!!

My favorite Christmas song is "White Christmas" because it reminds me of my parents house when I was younger. Everything was decorated, snow outside, Christmas music, wood stove with chestnuts roasting on top, homemade soup on the stove, everything seemed so warm and cozy.

Beth M said...

Fabulous project Kim. My favorite song is Silent Night. Nothing like singing it during the candlelight service at church. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes.

funkycrafter said...

i like holiday music in general but if i have to pick one it would be jingle bells.

Jaana said...

Loved the green color you used on your project! My all-time favorite Christmas song is "I'll be Home for Christmas". Since I live far away from my parents now, it's especially meaningful to me. Thank you for the chance to win.

Favorite Christmas song has to be "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" by Gene Autry.

Maria said...

Lovely project. I love all Christmas songs. Hard to narrow it down to one but two favorites stand out: Up on the Housetop and The Snow Lay on the Ground.
