Christmas packaging with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

This week Lindsay challenged us to design some Holiday packaging. I decided to make two projects with the adorable snowman from her Warm Winter digital stamp set. They coordinate with the last two projects I posted. You can see the greeting card HERE and the gift card holder HERE.



For the first project, I used a tin to package some yummy Bliss chocolates (possibly for my daughter's teacher). I'm sorry I can't remember where I got the tin but I have a whole box of them in the basement. :) I used some kraft colored shredded paper to hold the chocolates in place. I then made band for the tin using designer paper from My Mind's Eye. I mounted the snowman on some ovals and scallops cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I wanted to jazz it up a bit so I dug out a container of snowflake ornaments that I bought from Hobby Lobby. (24 snowflakes for $7.99 and then I got 50% off!) I am pleased with the results. I debated clipping the string off the ornament because I don't like the way it looks, but I want her teacher to be able to remove the ornament from the belly band and use it.

I then decided to try a Pillow Puff box. I used the same idea to jazz it up using one of the HL snowflake ornaments. I also added some ribbon and a button.

I am entering these projects in the Digital Tuesdays Challenge (DTC#36) which was to make a project inspired by a Christmas song. "In the meadow we can build a snowman....." Luckily, you can't hear me sing.


Here is a look at all the coordinating items I made using Warm Winter.

What a beautiful set, i love how you can remove the ornament and I don't think the string is distracting at all, it is good infact because she won't have4 to hunt for a hanger to hand up the decoration. I love the winter colors you used, brown white and blue, looks like maine:)

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
