Stampers Dozen Blog Hop...Thankful Hearts
Fluffiest Friends Just a Note

Creativity Abounds Blog Hop...Holiday Packaging/Gift Giving/Decorations


Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop together on the third Wednesday of every month.  Our hops focus around a particular bundle, holiday, occasion or product suite.  This month we are focusing on the Holiday Packaging/Gift Giving/Decorations.

Every month we create a tutorial bundle. The tutorial bundle is available as a gift with a qualifying purchase or can also be purchased.   We also have a stamp camp 3 times a year.  The next camp will be on February 9th and 10th 2024 and feature the Notes of Nature bundle (coming soon in the 2024 January-April Mini Catalog).

I chose to create a little bag using the A Walk in the Forest DSP.  The bag is a no glue bag and sized to fit some little jars.  


The tag was cut in Soft Sea Foam CS using a die from the Merriest Trees.    The Garden Green tree was also cut using the dies.  I cut one of each of the tree pieces.  Starting with the largest tree and adding the next largest until the smallest portion of the tree.  Along the edges I used a dauber to add a little "snow" (White Craft ink).  The giraffe is from the Festive & Fun set.  The giraffe was colored using Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Pecan Pie, Wild Wheat, Real Red, and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends and fussy cut.  


Here you can see all the layers of the tree.  I added some Pearlized Enamel Effects in white to the hat-around the brim and the pom pom.


The piece of DSP measures 7" x 12" scored at 5" and 7" along the long edge and 1-3/4" from each side.  Are you wondering what the jars are?  It is Pinderkaas aka peanut butter.  We saw these fun flavored peanut butters in Amsterdam and knew we wanted to bring some back for a peanut butter loving friend.   The 2 flavors here are Stroopwafel (A stroopwafel is a thin, round waffle cookie made from two layers of sweet baked dough held together by caramel filling) and Koffie (coffee).  


If you want more information about how to make this bag, let me know.  

Be sure to check out all the stops on the hop.  There are so many fun and lovely ideas!


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Seasonal Sale before it ends on November 16th!
