My Little Shoebox Blog Hop Baby!!!


There is just something to say about the creativity on this design team! I hope you are joining me from viewing the unmatchable talent of miss PATTIE'S blog, but if not let your eyes indulge in all the creative goodies by starting at the MY LITTLE SHOEBOX blog. There is a SPECTACULAR prize at the end so be sure to leave comments as you hippity hop along!
I had the privilege of working with the new HOLLY JOLLY line and let me tell you this paper is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO versatile! If you are like me you tend to plan out or sketch what you are in the mood for creating. Well, I had so many ideas it was tough to narrow it down so let's start with the simple teacher gift! I used the Bazzill Chipboard pieces, covered them with the brand spanking new HOLLY JOLLY line and here is what I came up with... a simple wall hanging!!!

sweet and simple...
used the scalloped paper, distressed, layered and with a little craft knife trim...
some stamp action using the Summer Breeze stamp along with some glossy accents...
stickles... a staple for every holiday project and I LOVE how it compliments this paper!!!
my favorite!!!
I love the My Little Shoebox minis... been known to buy them in BULK!
adhered them to the chipboard piece in alpha order,
used craft knife to trim,
smothered in glossy accents and let dry...

Since the holiday spirit is all about giving,
I will choose one HOLLY JOLLY BLOG HOPPER winner from
those comments left here on my blog!!!

The winner will be announced on Monday, October 18th!!!

Now... to continue on this scrapalicious journey,
head on over to MELANIE'S blog for some
My Little Shoebox fantastic-ness all her own!

Thank you so much for stopping by...

Carpe' Craftum!!!
