A Litte Bit of Christmas In Fall

Ornament

Here are the gifts that were in the Autumn boxes I gave my neighbors. I had some leftover Christmas DSP and what a great way to use it! This is simply sheets of papers cut into thin strips. I wrapped the paper around a pencil and put it in the craft ornament and there you have it, a handmade cute Christmas decoration! Not to mention it’s easy as pie but your gift receivers don’t need to know that, right?! 😉

The ribbon is the Cherry Cobbler seam ribbon and it matches the Christmas paper in the ornament.  Of course we have to coordinate but it’s no job when you’re using Stampin’ Up. That part is done for you! You just have to choose your favorites and that in itself is a challenge for me!

Overwhelmed By Autumn Cuteness

Fall Gable

Happy Fall Ya’ll!

I recently had a Pinterest Party at my house and I made these cute little boxes for my neighbors. Most everything on these boxes are retired Stampin’ Up products that I just happen to LOVE! I hoard them for special occasions like this.

There is a great tutorial from Splitcoaststampers that I found on making these boxes here. These are simple enough to make and then you get to do the fun stuff, DECORATE!

The leaves on the boxes are from the Autumn Accents Die that is still current. I ran the leaves through the Big Shot using the lattice embossing folder giving it some nice texture. And how about that great texture on the core’dinations paper?!

Anywho, on my next post I’ll show what was inside these cute boxes! I’m trying to figure out how to add a supply list on these posts but apparently I can’t because of the .net of the address??? This stuff is mega confusing for me so if you have any suggestions please let me know! Also, if you have any questions on any of the products used give me a shout! 🙂

Better Late Than Never!

Hey Hey!! Sorry for the mild break. Life is busy with a baby! Here is another share as promised.

I know, you must be thinking “but Bridgette, you promised another card using Letterpress Winter”. Oh, but I have dear friends! This sentiment is from the Letterpress Winter. I told you this set was versatile! This doesn’t even come close to looking like a Christmas card! 🙂

I haven’t done a challenge in a long time so I decided to play at CAS(E) this Sketch!. I got a little playful with this one. I colored in my DSP with a blendability marker and cut my chevron ribbon in half. Because Stampin’ Up card stock is so awesome I used it to thread my button and made little curly cues by wrapping it around a skewer. The dots around the sentiment are just different sized circle punches that I used on the glimmer paper. I hope you like it!
