Yes it's time once again for another Watercooler Blog Hop, and this time we'll show our new Holiday Catalog a little love. Whether you've hopped on here, or come from Marie's fabulous page (weren't her ideas over-the-top wonderful?), I hope you'll enjoy our creations and get some inspiration for your holiday projects. There are nine stops on this tour; just click on the buttons below to move along.
We have been asked to prepare three items featuring our favorite products from the Holiday Catalog, and I had a hard time choosing. So I just started creating, and ended up picking three of my creations to share with you. I hope you like them.
Let's start with Halloween and a double Z-fold card:
Featuring Spooky Fun, I used almost every stamp, and then I used almost every framelit in the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies. Look what happens when I open up the card:
Let's move on to something more sedate. I couldn't wait to play with the White Gift Boxes. Is there anyone else like me who just can't resist a good gift box? And these are perfect--3" x 3" x 3", and include an acetate sleeve to slide over the box; take a look:
2-3/4" squares for all sides made these boxes so pretty. And I added a little trim from the Flourish Thinlits dies and some Cherry Cobbler card stock. Then I slipped on the sleeve and tied it all up with yet another wonderful new item--Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine. It has red metallic thread that is so sparkly!
And see that tag? Oh my my...another favorite new thing--the Merriest Wishes stamp set with matching Merry Tags Framelits Dies. But with a twist--this tag is supposed to have a cut out tree; instead, I saved the pieces from the cut out, and glued them together to make a tree. Such fun!
OK, OK, now to my very favorite project--I fell in love with the Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies when I first laid eyes on them. HAD. TO. HAVE. THEM! But all the cards I started making with them looked similar, until...
Well that's it for me. I'll have details for each project over the next week, so be sure to pop back in starting Sunday.
And now off you go to Christine's blog, where you are sure to find more creative inspiration! I love her work. Thanks for stopping by!
