Hello and welcome, today I am taking part in the Dream Theme Blog Hop, we are all making small gift ideas. I am TOTALLY excited to see what the ladies come up with, we are an international team, one person from each market Stampin’ Up! operates in, I am waving the blog for Australia. The idea for this blog hop came from my friend Patrice Halliday-Larsen of New Zealand we have talked for over a year about doing something together and here it is.
I am a total CHRISTMAS Crazy! I just love it, like everything; what it represents and the celebration, also all the pretty decorations this time brings and I just find people are nicer in general at Christmas. With all that said, I felt that I had to make my theme Christmas.
It is a matchbox style box, the tray slides out to reveal 3 tags, 5 of each design. I used the blackboard stamping technique on the tags, stamping the greeting with VersaMark and white embossing the image on Basic Black cardstock then I lightly sponged a little white craft ink over the embossing, I just adore how this turns out.
The stamp set I used for the greetings is called Oh What Fun, it is from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and the BEST news is that in November it is 25% off; see here and here for other stamps discounted this month.
HOW cute are this ribbon spools! They totally boost the cutest factor, as too the mini Jingle bells, they are great value. Check them out HERE.
Well that is all I have for you today, thank you for stopping by. The next blog to visit is the leader of this blog hop and my dear friend Patrice Halliday-Larsen of New Zealand
