December Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the December Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, United Kingdom and Australia! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Welcome one and all.

There was so much to choose from in the Holiday Catalog this year. Right? My favorite was the Wrapped in Plaid Suite. Many of my blogs over the last several weeks have featured cards with products from this suite. I love the Pine Tree Punch and the Wrapped in Plaid 6x6 Specialty Designer Series Paper. And the price point was spot on! My gift-wrapping projects today include the Mini Pizza Boxes and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

(Here is a sneak peek of my holiday card too!) The 3x3 Mini Pizza Boxes will hold one of your large, homemade cookies, or a set of your 3x3 homemade cards, or even a merchant gift card fits perfectly. This year there are GOLD Mini Pizza Boxes! How about that. These boxes will make your gift giving this holiday season super easy.

Now, using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, I also made gift tags with this Suite. The tags are super quick and easy. And you cannot go wrong with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. My favorite ribbon from the Holiday Catalog is the Curly Ribbon from the Let It Snow Suite. It is so fun!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my gift packaging projects. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

#1 - Check for new products added to the Clearance Rack! I still cannot believe that The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is still on the Clearance Rack, available for purchase at 15% off (while supplies last). If you need more information on Stampin' Up!'s product medley, message me for the flyer showing everything that is included. PLUS, that beautiful Rich Razzleberry 1/4" (6.4 mm) Velvet Ribbon. Do not delay in placing your order.


Need I say more. You have until January 2 to secure those stamp sets and while supplies last for all coordinating tools and embellishments. Message me for the flyer so that you are totally in the know.

If you placed an order from me over the past year, you are all set to receive a copy of the upcoming 2020 Mini Catalog in the mail (no longer the "Spring" catalog) and the 2020 SAB Brochure.  If you do not receive one by the go live date of January 3, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. f you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas.

As always, if you have any questions, or need assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
