My project is super easy, uses very few supplies, and with minimal effort, you have a gorgeous gift bag!

All that you need is a bit of card stock for the base and handles, half a sheet of DSP for the bag, some ribbon, scraps to make a tag, adhesive and something to score with.
Choose the DSP to suit your occasion and your gift is all wrapped.

Gold Edged Christmas Card

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘December Holidays’. You might have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Wasn’t her project lovely?

The card that I have done today is quick and easy. I used the foil edged cards and envelopes for that gorgeous gold edge around the card, and dug into my DSP stash. If you want to make different variations, you can use the silver edged cards and any of the pretty Christmas DSP in the holiday catalogue.

Don’t forget to stamp the envelope and the inside of the card so that everything is matching.

These are the products that I used for this card

Second Circle Journal

I have started on a second Circle Journal You might remember the last round. I created a journal, and it get posted to the ladies that are in my group and each one adds a card to the journal until it completes its circle and comes home to me.

I decided to make my theme a bit challenging this time. I have asked the ladies to create cards using a stamp or punch that has been used differently to just the face value of the product. If we can find different uses for a product, that is make it more versatile, it increases its usefulness and we get far more out of the set.

This is the card that I made to kick off the journal. I can’t take any credit for this card. I saw it on one of the swap boards at the Stampin’ Up! convention in Orlando and I loved it. Unfortunately I don’t know who the very clever person was that came up with the design. If you happen to know who it was, please let me know so that I can give them the acknowledgement that they deserve. I used the Shimmery white embossing paste to make the fluff on her hat and skirt, because in my world sparkle makes everything better!
I used the softly falling embossing folder to create the background snow effect. Unfortunately this has been retired.

Beautiful You is one of my favourite stamp sets, and now I have another use for it. Did you ever think of this as being a Christmas stamp?
My journal is on its way to New Zealand, and the next journal should be coming to me soon. I wonder what the theme of that journal will be.
