October Blog Hop - All that Glitters

Welcome to another Blog Hop.

These early dark nights can only mean on thing its time to start the seasonal crafting.

I love using Glimmer paper which I have used on my projects.

To make this card I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Brick Wall Embossing Folder, Metallic Sequin Assortment and the Cute Cookie Cutter Christmas Eskimo. The Message is from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.

Again I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder, Metallic and the Cute Cookie Cutter Christmas Santa. The message is from the Wondrous Wreath Father Christmas stamp set.

I have also used some old stock which I have been saving for Christmas the message is from the Wrapped in Warmth stamp set.

 If you find any more ways of using it please share.

August Jems Blog Hop

Well hello,  I'm back on the Jem's Blog Hop after missing a couple of months.
 This months theme is Boxes Bags and Packages
I have used the Gift Box Punch Board,  as I had not used it for a while.
It inspired me to use the box board in my monthly class.

This is the matching box and card made in class with a separate tag. 

On the box for my blog I decided to attach the tag to the box
with a brad to cover the closure on the top.

This is how I made my box...

My pretty glitter box...

Detailed Floral thinlits die...

Ta dah my finished box...  

I love the Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper and how the Rich Razzleberry
reflects as a pink glow.

Thank you for viewing my blog.

Please visit my fellow Jems to see what fab Boxes, Bags and Packages they have created just click on the images below!
