Pinkies Stampin’ Up! autumn/winter seasonal catalogue blog hop …

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!  

If you’ve arrived from Sarah’s blog, a big hello to you.  

There are so many lovely new products to choose from in the seasonal catalogue that I was spoiled for choice. The winter frost designer series paper really caught my eye as it is just beautiful.  The designs are so gorgeous – I love it all. After stroking the paper for a while (I know, us crafters love to stroke paper!) I cut into it to make this pretty gift box, ideal for holding personalised stationery, recipes or greetings cards …

It will make an ideal Christmas gift and I know just who I’m going to give it to. 

I added some matching dividers with space to write notes such as birthdays and important dates …

To make the box, you need just one 12”x12” piece of cardstock and one sheet of designer series paper, with a little extra for embellishments and dividers if you wish.  

The box holds standard sized cards and envelopes.  I have a tutorial available if you would like to make one yourself, with sizes in both inches and centimetres. 

There was enough designer paper left to also make a 6″x6″ card and matching gift tag …

Pinkies new catalogue blog hop…

We’re so glad you could join us on our Blog Hop. We’ll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping. We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

My projects today highlight the happy day stamp set and the gorgeous quatrefancy specialty designer series paper (dsp) which looks so pretty teamed with the new smoky slate ink and cardstock. A piece of the printed window sheet from the same dsp pack made a fancy border for my card …

And to match the card, I made some pretty packaging using the quick and easy, but fun to make, tag a bag gift box, decorated with strips of dsp and stamped images from the mosaic madness and happy day stamp sets, which work beautifully together …

The tag was embossed with the modern mosaic embossing folder …

… and my paper snips were brilliant for cutting out the stamped images to make the embellishments.

I did a little stamping on the tissue paper for the inside too, so everything matched.

The new smoky slate ink colour is a beautiful silvery grey – I just love it!

And I love how the card and box look together – they are going to make the perfect gift for someone …
