PPP Blog Hop: Gifts Galore


Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the November Paper Pumpkin Kit: Gifts Galore.

This kit makes 9 gift boxes, 3 each of 3 different designs. Here are the designs: 

I love these boxes because they are big enough to put some great gifts in them. I am thinking nail file, finger nail polish and Bath & Body Works hand lotion. Or a sleep mask and lip balm. Or a few Hot Wheels cars for a younger child, Or a lot of candy....

What would you put in them? 

I really struggled for an alternative, but finally decided on making tags. I chopped (gasp!) the head of the snowman. I took a piece of 3 1/4" x  6" piece of Basic White cardstock (c/s) and scored at 3". I used the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies and laid it on the c/s with the edge of one side of the circle just off the paper and cut it out with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.

Once it was cut, it looked like this: 

I stamped the sentiment, some snowflakes and the To & From on the tag, and then attached the snowman's head. I also added some Wink of Stella to his earmuffs and scarf. 

I did the same with one of the presents from the stack of presents. I just cut a 2 1/8" x 5 1/2" piece of White c/s. Scored at 2 3/4", then folded in half. Stamped it and then glued the present on the front. You could do all the presents this way. I added a gem to the center of the bow. 

 I hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create. Click on the Next button below and hop on over to Dana's blog to see what Christmas magic she created! So glad you could join us!

Mini Mug Ferrero Rocher Holder

 Hi friends!! I have a mini mug to show you and it holds a Ferrero Rocher candy. This cute little guy uses the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP), but any of the awesome Stampin' Up! DSP could be used. And, you can get 6 from a sheet of 12 x 12 DSP.

What do you think, super cute, huh?!

And for packaging purposes, out 3" x 9" Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags are perfect for a K-Cup or packet of Hot Chocolate to accompany the mini cup and candy! 

The Brew Some Fun stamp set completes the perfect tag, and what a great Secret Santa gift, or stocking stuffer, or, who would you give this to?

Here is the video, if you are interested: 

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Label Me Fancy Punch


Hello!! Thanks for joining us on the November IDEAS Blog Hop! The theme this month is "Punch It Up!" We are showcasing the fabulous punches that Stampin' Up! offers. Some demonstrators used punches from the 2021-2022 July-December Mini Catalog, but others used some past favorites from the Annual Catalog. Either way you cannot go wrong, as all our punches are great!

Here are some snippets of the fabulous projects created:

We have had some new demonstrators join our team, so be on the look out for new names in the bundle! We had 15 demonstrators participate, and have over 60 pages of tutorials for over 20 projects!! Whoohoo!! That's a lot of punches!!

I used the newly released Eden's Garden Bundle in my design this month. While my actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the bundle, I have a card (my tutorial project is not a card!) made from that bundle to show you. It doesn't use a punch, but does showcase the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper (DSP). The picture doesn't do the gold inlays in the DSP justice, which are so pretty with the Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen colors. Consider it a bonus project! 

 Here is my card:
