This blog hop is an anything but holidays one, using holiday catalogue products. So that’s what I’ve done and focused on the Paisleys & Posies in the Holiday Catalogue. My card and box both use this delightful Designer Series Paper and the Paisleys & Posies Photopolymer Bundle. Here’s my card: The sentiment is from Frosted Medallions in the Holiday Catalogue and is layered on some Copper Foil Sheet and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped one of the images in Versamark… Read more »

Note Imperial measurements in blue are only approximate… Read more »

The Latte Girls are back with another inspirational Blog Hop and this week we’re looking at Christmas packaging.

Isn’t this just a great idea for quick packaging for a last-minute gifts? Just buy some Kraft Bags from Stampin’… Read more »

Today I’m going to show you how I used Stampin’ Up!’s Thick Whisper White Card to make a Note and Pencil Box all in one. Now this would make a lovely gift, especially for busy people who like to keep their post – it or note cubes together with a pen for quick notes and access. You could even add a yearly calendar to the front instead of the sentiment or image. Watch the video or scroll down for the… Read more »

There is a whole card on the front of this pouch which is beautifully made using the Rose Wonder Bundle and some ink and daubers. Kay has used the Kraft Rope Trim from the Holiday Catalogue.

I had a great deal of fun creating these little Tassels to include in my Team Gifts and Roomie Gifts for On Stage Live a couple of weeks ago. I thought I’d share them with you today. Now whilst filming this Video, I realised the lighting isn’t great. So I do apologies and will try to rectify it soon. However, I’m sure you’ll be able to pick up the idea by watching the video today. Designer Series Paper 6″ x… Read more »

This month the Latte Girls are swapping Sweet Treat. Now this idea came from Brenda Quintana from Qbees Quest who made some smaller ones for Hershey Chocolates.

Card 2 3/4″ x 3 1/8″ – Crumb Cake Score at 3/8″; 1 3/8″; 1 3/4″ and 2 3/4″ Stamp Reindeer in Soft Suede on Crumb Cake… Read more »

So this is the one I’m making today in the video. I’ve still used Candy Cane Lane Designer… Read more »
