2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop - Christmas


Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators from all over the world who Love what we do and Share what we love. Hopefully you will be inspired by all of the lovely Christmas Projects that you will see as you follow along on our hop today.

If you follow me and what I do as paper crafter you already know that I have an obsession with Gift Card Holders. First because I have a need for them. Some of my family live out of state and sending gifts can be costly as well as the "how do I exchange this" issue. This way I know my family will get what they want for Christmas or what ever occasion we may be celebrating.


The Gift Card Holder I have to share with you today uses the Candy Cane Season Bundle. I love the punch that is bundled with the Candy Cane Season stamp set. I did use the "Ho Ho Ho" from the Labels to Love stamp set and the "'tis the sweet season" from the Signs of Santa stamp set. Of course I set it up on my Stamparatus as I knew I would be doing more than one of these. You can find the full supply list below if you would like to purchase any of these products through my online store. Don't forget to use the Host Code, with an order of $50.00 or more you will receive, FREE from me, the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The Year End Closeout began on December 5th. So, the Candy Cane Season Bundle is Retiring. The Candy Cane Builder Punch is discounted 25% while supplies last. The Signs of Santa Bundle is also going away. If you signed up for my newsletter there is a great card tutorial in it this month for the Signs of Santa set as well as the full tutorial for the Gift card Holder. I'm running a little behind my self so you may have time to sign up for the newsletter and you will receive these tutorials.

Now it is time to hop along to Janey Backer's blog and see what Christmas inspiration she has to share with you.

Global Stamping Friends - Seasonal Fun



Welcome to the December GSF Blog Hop! This month's theme is Seasonal Fun. We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators who Love what we do and share what we Love.

In the last couple of years I started a new tradition in my family, Handmade Tags. We get together at my house and spend the afternoon making gift tags. We have only 1 rule, use a pencil to write on the tags so that they can be reused (if they want to reuse them, sometimes they just want to keep them).

I even made a box to keep them in. For the set I am sharing with you today I used the Farmhouse Christmas Stamp Set,  Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, the Christmas Traditions Punch box set, the Stitched Shapes Framelits, the Berries Die is from the Flourish Thinlits, the 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim, the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, the Festive Farmhouse Twine, and the Scalloped Tag Top Punch, and the Sprig Punch. For the cardstock I used Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla Thick, and Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, Oh and the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.
