Chinese New Year Blog Hop


Welcome to the Chinese New Year Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Dahlhouse Design's blog.  If not, please start at Emily's blog for all the details. 

I'm so glad you could join us. The Year of the Snake officially begins on Sunday, February 10th so be sure to wish all your Chinese friends longevity, happiness, wealth and good fortune during this two-week festival!

As we grow older and got married, usually families are driven apart each to their own business. Only during the Chinese New Year (which is now official holiday in my country, Indonesia) that all of the married brothers and sisters are gathered in one of the family member's houses. Catching up news and exchanging information. It's good occassion that our kids can connect also with their cousins.

Now, how 'bout a few projects using the free digis created especially for this occasion?

I made special digi for this occasion. For full version you can download it HERE.
Feel free to download and have fun playing with it :)




And these are my projects using the digi:

I made an angpao, envelope that you can put some money in it and to be given to your loved ones (especially the younger non-married ones)

 This one can be used as table decoration along with sweets and treats for the guests.
I cut the 3D frames using Silhouette, you can buy it at this link
