December Blog Hop

Thanks for joining out blog.  Hope you enjoy all the creative ideas everyone has put together for you.  All the ladies are awesome so please check them out!!  Thanks for visiting my blog. 

 I love our December theme of gift ideas.  I used a 12 x 12 piece of designer paper for the container and a strip of designer paper for the top cut at 6 x 3 1/2.  Added a scallop trim to the topper.  Punched a hole through the topper and container.  No glue or tape required.  Just scoring - all the ladies in my MOPS craft night loved these.

Below is a side view.  Hope you like the idea.  And I love the owl paper from last year's Stampin' Up theme.
Had paper left over so thought I would use it.  My grand children loved the owls.  They get to help with a craft each year and these are so easy for them to make.  

I have a thing for snowmen so the current snowman set from Stampin'Up called SNOW DAY worked great for this tag.  He fit well in the framelits from Stampin' Up also.  Hope you like him.

Look how nicely the Thirty-One container works with the tag?  I am using a lot of these containers as my gift containers this year for Xmas.  Fits my snowman theme perfectly.  

I am using these cute Thirty One gift containers for many of my Xmas packaging.  No wrapping paper - yahoo!!  I just recently signed up as a consultant for Thirty-One and just love it so check out the catalog HERE.  If you are interested you can e-mail me at  

Look at the cute snowmen all around the container?  I just can't resist anything with snowmen.

I always pull out my old sets during the holidays.  I just love these cute little "marshmallow" snowmen.  They will work great as candy wrappers for little treats at my Xmas gatherings this year.

October Fall Blog Hop

Hope you enjoy our Fall Blog Hop.  We are having so much fun.  

Here is my card for this month.  I just love fall and the colors are in my favorite pallet.  Enjoy!!  The sandable early espresso paper worked great with the woodgrain embossing folder.  Can you guess where the words came from? Check out It's a Wrap Occasions stamp set on page 31 of the catalog.   Just love to use stamp sets in a different venue than shown in the catalog.  I love the challenge of finding many ways to use one set.

Products I used to make this card
Paper:  101650 Very Vanilla, 129956 Early Espresso (Sandable), 126975 Crumb Cake  
Inks:  126974 Early Espresso, 131173 Crushed Curry, 126965 Cajun Craze
Pens:  131262, Stampin' Write Markers Regals Collection
Designer Series Paper:  129310 Gingham Garden
Baker's Twine 125575 Island Indigo
Accessories:  104332 Snail Adhesive, 104430 Stampin' Dimensionals, 113439 Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, 127821 Wood grain Embossing Folder, 127812 Autumn Accents Bigz Die129367 Stampin' Sanding Block
Stamp set:  128087 Wonderfall, 123592 It's a Wrap Occasions

To order any these items, shop MY STORE HERE!

And you are not limited to making just cards.  I also covered this box that holds four wooden coasters.  I used some scrap designer paper from last year, but you can certainly see how easy it would be to make in the new designer papers.

Here is another view as well as a view of the coasters.  I used clear spray-on Krylon sealer to make them water resistant.  I found the box at Ben Franklin in Bonney .

The coasters are reversible.
