Christmas Around the World and Year of Cheer

Thanksgiving was a busy time around the Stewart household!  Thanksgiving meal with my husband’s folks, then we headed up even further north into the beautiful mountains of North Georgia for a very peaceful weekend.  A respite before the Christmas “activity storm” hits!

Christmas Around the World and Year of Cheer


The Mini Pizza Boxes in the Holiday Catalog made it so quick and easy to create these Christmas gift boxes.  I used the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper with a touch of gold glitter paper scrap from a Paper Pumpkin Kit (yay for scraps!) and bit of Basic Black Bakers Twine for the accent.  The sentiment, also, is from a Paper Pumpkin Kit stamp set.  

The Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper has really become one of my very favorites!  I mounted a square of it on a square of Gold Foil Sheets, then topped with a gold Foil Snowflake and a Gold Faceted Gem.  Love the BLING!

While I was playing with the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, I decided to make a gift bag with it using one of my favorite Stampin’ Up tools, the Gift Bag Punch Board.  It makes creating bags incredibly fast!

As lovely as this is, it only took me minutes to craft it, thanks to the Gift Bag Punch Board.  I bannered a piece of the Champagne Foil Sheets with the  Banner Triple Punch, then topped it with the gold Foil Snowflake and a Faceted Gem.  I used the Gold Ribbon for that “extra touch” behind the snowflake.  Can you tell I like bling?!?

These are just a few of the items I will have for sale this weekend at the Holiday Expo Event here in Jasper.





Come see me and numerous other vendors to do some Christmas shopping!  I’ll have Christmas cards, boxes and bags, as well as many all occasion cards and gifts.
