Stampin Addicts Holiday Mini Blog Hop

Have you been waiting with great anticipation for this Hop? I know I have! I can't wait to see all of the amazing ideas and the sneak peeks for the new Holiday Mini, which is always my FAVORITE mini of the year :)
The master list for the hop is here. Or you can just keep hitting the next blog buttons! If you started at the beginning, you just arrived from Kim's blog where she did wonderful things with the Frostwood Lodge paper! LOVE that paper! And it coordinates very well with the Christmas Lodge set, which is what I am featuring :) I live in the Northwoods so this is a perfect set for me for all kinds of things, it is so not just for Christmas to me. I wanted to make a scrapbook page or 2, but I ran out of time...work interferes with my playtime again! LOL!

First up is a card I made combining the new Borderlines set from the main catty with the Christmas Lodge images. Change the sentiment and take off the rhinestones, and it would be a good masculine card too!


My next project is a little book to keep handy with all of the Christmas shopping I must do in the next few months! The pull out tabs are from the Two Tags die, and I will do a tutorial for the book later this week, using the amazing new Simply Scored Tool! Love that thing too!! The Baker's Twine wraps around the book and around the mini brad to keep it closed while stored in my purse :)

And I could not resist making some ornaments for the tree with the Wood Sheets, the Perfect Pennants die's medallions, and the Christmas Lodge images! I added some dazzle with the new Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue and some Rhinestones. I used the new Cherry Cobbler Quilted ribbon on one, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon on another, and Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta ribbon on the last one.


You have probably seen these little boxes all over now. Brian Piller showed us how to make them at convention. I discovered a little twist on the project though... if you crease your score lines well, you can push the top down and it will stay closes on its own! The box on the left is closed and the right is sort of open. Sort of because you can pull it open farther to access the inside of the box! This box is made with the Mini Milk Carton die.
And the ornaments I made will fit onside of this box!!!  I bet you could put cookies in there too. I can think of a ton of uses for this box, and I hope you all do too :)

Come back later this week for more details on these projects! I can wait to share more with you!

Next up is Jen Timko at Stampin' on the Fly where she did fabulous things with Bright Hopes!

Tanya, I always get a kick out of seeing your hop posts and this one is no exception. I particularly like the ideas you have for the ornaments and that little blossom box is an great idea for a rustic, but elegant, gift box.

Paula said...

I've struggled with this stamp set, but I love what you did with it here. Especially the ornaments. Very clever. Thanks for sharing them here on the blog hop!

Mickey Roberts said...

Love these projects, Tanya. Especially the box and the ornaments.

Amy said...

Way to go, Tanya! My favorite is the ornaments--wow!! I'll be copying that concept! Thanks!

Adriana Benitez said...

What great ideas! I especially like the ornaments and the combination of images, ribbon, etc you used. TFS!

Shelley Z said...

What fabulous projects! Every one of them! Can't wait to make the little gift booklet!

Deb B (Debadoo) said...

Love your projects!! I never think to use just a portion of large images sometimes. I think this set is beautiful, but think, wow that tree and house are huge! Well use part of them silly! Love the ornaments especially!

WebDeb said...

Your ornaments are charming! I have wood sheets coming soon to my stampin' space, so your timing is perfect!

Sara Mattson-Blume said...

Love the ornaments and their little box--very cool idea!

Karen said...

You were busy! Fun ideas for some Christmas decorations. I especially like the "shopping" booklet you made from the two tags die. This would be great to use all year. I can't buy the grandkids everything on their list at Christmas, but birthdays and other gift-giving holidays are always just around the corner.

Fantastic projects! Those ornaments on the wood sheets are great!! Love the box too, I really need to make one!

Lisa Young said...

Tanya you always come up with such creative ideas! I waver back and forth with buying this set. After seeing your wood sheet ornaments and the boxes which I absolutely love, I think I will go ahead and purchase it.

Betty said...

Man I like that tree stamp after seeing what you have done with it. Those ornaments are awesome and I especially like how you stamped the milk carton box!
