Holidays Paper Crafting Blog Hop


I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Christmas projects. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Ginger Rabesa’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Christmas Pines stamp set and coordinating Pretty Pines framelits have finally arrived in my house. I thought my sister Tricia purchased them when they were introduced with the bundle pricing. We would discuss getting the products several times this year until I finally wanted to use them. I asked if I could borrow them and she said she did not get them. So off I went to purchase them with my demonstrator discount. That really helps stretch the paper crafting dollars.

I am so happy with this card. It’s made festive with the pine cone and sprig embellishments cut using the Pretty Pines framelits. The Wood Crate framelits make cutting a wooden crate easy. The decorated crate is my favorite part of this greeting card.

Add a red rhinestone jewel to make it sparkle…Add a few if you would like. There are 220 jewels in a package.
