Presenting the Gifts Blog Hop: Seasonal Chums

My Inky Friends and I are back to show you some awesome gift packaging ideas! And while you are reading this, I am at OnStage in Salt Lake City, but I won't be seeing many of these friends. I will be making new ones though, for sure!

If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Rhonda Griffin's blog. Boy-howdy! She sure made a lot of fun things, right?!


I have a little confession to make. The projects for this hop were just pulled out of the leftover stock I had from a recent craft fair... I had some other cute stuff too, but there were some retired things on them. 😁 A woman has to multi task where she can! Last week was really busy. I worked a full work week, had a craft fair, one of my son's got married in my house, and we had an out of town funeral for a close family member! I don't recommend booking yourself quite this tightly. But we all made it through, with grace!

So, the projects! This little cutie is actually going to be a swap also. I may or may not have gone a little nuts making these before the craft show, sold half my stock, and still have 25 or so left! 😅

I colored this jolly snowman from Seasonal Chums with the new Blendas, and covered him in Clear Wink of Stella. And could't catch the shimmer with my camera in the 5 minutes allotted to photography before I flew out to Salt Lake City Wednesday morning.

There is a little inclusion card inside the purse, which I stamped with image and sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments. A gift card fits in this purse right along with the lip balm and the little card. How awesome is that?! Instant gift.

ETA: I made a quick video showing how to make these little purses. And showing a few more things you can put in them!

Sweet Mini Treat Bag cocoa packets with Stampin' Up!'s Seasonal Chums and Christmas Pines stamp sets and Coffee Break DSP~ Tanya Boser for Inky Friends
I had taken an entire pack of the Coffee Cafe DSP and created 24 Mini Treat Bags with them. Then I decorated them all, and made an inclusion card for those too with the dies, and filled these with cocoa packets. There were big sellers too. They almost sold out! To save time with the coloring, I stamped the reindeer on Crumb Cake cardstock, then colored his nose. bow, bell, and hooves with Blendas. And cuz I can't stop, I covered him in Clear Wink of Stella too 😉
We are going to pretend that I didn't use glittery gold embossing powder, that it is Gold embossing powder. I am about out of ours and need to order more! The sentiment is from Christmas Pines. I adore that set!

Simple embossed sentiment on the enclosure card. I should have brought these to OnStage too, but too little time and space for that! And guess what. A gift card fits in this too!

A crowd of tags with Stampin' Up!'s Seasonal Chums and Seasonal Tags dies and watercolor paper~ Tanya Boser for Inky Friends
Last up, I made a crowd of little tags on watercolor paper. The coordinating dies made my life so much easier, I am telling you! I used an Aqua-painter and ink from the lids of several inkpads to color these. And more Clear Wink of Stella!

Ok, off to see what Holly Krautkremer has created!
