Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop - Holiday Collection Week 2

Thanks for 'hopping' here from Natasha's blog. I hope you are enjoying the wonderful card samples that the DT have made.

This week I have made a card from the very festive Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper.
 
It's made to look like gift wrapping, complete with a paper bow made from a 'bow punch' from the 'Tags for All' Digital Kit' (MDS).

The card insert slides into a pocket and it's a great design if you wanted to add a gift card to the inside as well.  I'm really enjoying playing with products from the Holiday Catalogue.  I hope you are inspired to join us at Create with Connie and Mary, Holiday Collection, to access a heap of amazing Christmas Tutorials from the Design Team.

The next stop on the hop is at Claire Creates Cards and I am really looking forward to seeing what project she has for us this week.

Paper Crafter's Library - Trend Watch - Feathers

Hi there, just popping in with a quick post to let you know that Paper Crafter's Library featured one of the latest trends, 'Feathers', in one of their blog posts this week.  It was a buzz to share my Project Life Confetti Pocket with PCL, along with Helen, a good friend of mine, whose emboss resist feather card is just gorgeous.


Here's my project that was featured -
 
  
The gold feather inside the confetti pocket is a MDS digital download called Feathered Woodcuts and was e-cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

While I'm on the topic of 'feathers' have you seen the latest offering from Stampin' Up! ® ?
 
Seriously gorgeous, right?

Thanks for hopping along to my blog. Oh wow! wasn't Natasha's project just gorgeous? I hope you are enjoying all the 'eye candy' and getting some great ideas for your Christmas projects.
 
It's my turn and I've changed a popular design of mine into a Top Note Owl Easel Card/Gift Card Holder -

 
It features the beautiful , 'All is Calm' Specialty DSP made from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits Dies and Frosted Sequins from the Holiday Catalogue.
 
The easel card base is made from the Top Note Die and you can find the instructions for the punch art owl face, HERE.

CTC 12 - Gift Boxes and Bags

I love CASE-ing the Catty and I absolutely love my Gift Box Punch Board.  For this challenge we are being inspired by all the beautiful gift boxes and bags that are featured in the Holiday Catalogue.

CASE-ing the Catty Challenge #12

 
Page 6 has some great sample projects - I CASED  a cute box and just changed it a little.  I really liked the wrapped twine around the punched Christmas Tree Tag -
 
 
Take some time out, browse through the catty and join us for this fortnight's challenge.  We'd love to see what festive packaging you will CASE!
