October 2010 Pals Hops

Welcome to the November PALS HOP!  This month, we're featuring Winter Holiday themed projects for your inspiration! Today’s project is a Christmas gift for my children’s teachers. I just love how simple and fun this project turned out. I have also included a Christmas card for some inspiration. Scroll down for tomorrow’s sneak peak of another great Christmas project, this time with drawers!  I'm stop number 1 on the PALS HOP and I'm glad you hopped in!  I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for papercrafted creations from the Stampin' Pretty Pals!  Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP below and you'll be back on track!

Inspired by Stampin’ Tips:

  • One of the many great reasons about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the Stampin’ Success magazine we get monthly and this is where I found this great project. As I am not allowed to give out SU!’s pattern, I did find one on Splitcoaststampers.com! I was so excited when I found it so here it is! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/tagbox/
  • To put my box together I used Craft Super Glue which works wonders on projects like this.
  • I made ten tags for each little box for the teachers. Three of the tags from Tags til Christmas stamp set and the “Joy at Christmas” sentiment comes from Perfect Punches Stamp Set.DSC_2190 copy
  • Inspired by Stampin’ Tips:

  • DSC_2168 copyToday’s card size is 5×5 using beautiful Christmas colors, which are Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Jolly Holiday DSP.
  • The Northern Flurry Textured Embossing folder is featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog and created these snowflakes that just add so much texture.
  • “tidings of comfort & joy” sentiment is a favorite from the Word Play stamp set. I punched it out using the Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Circle Punch and 2-1/2 Circle Punch.
  • Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Very Vanilla Button and 4 Rhinestone Jewels finish this Christmas card with my touch of glam. Smile

      Joanna, I couldn’t wait to see what you had for us today and am thrilled as always! What a great card and pift set! I love how you layered the Decorative Label Punched sentiment over the scalloped circle – that looks teriffic! As does the ribbon with the button and snipped star – so polished and stunning!
