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

Blog hop logo

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 …

Valentine double easel card side on

I know there’s been a lot of hearts on my blog lately, but I literally fell in love with the more amore specialty designer series paper, and couldn’t resist using it with the core’dinations cardstock to make a double easel Valentine’s card.

The core’dinations cardstock really comes into its own when it’s embossed and sanded to reveal the lighter core, highlighting the designs of the embossing folders.

I added a row of the vanilla flower trim –

With a sprinkling of adhesive pearls and a tiny bow of very vanilla seam binding ribbon …

Despite being so dimensional, the card folds flat to fit into an envelope for giving.
