November Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Pals Hop!  This month, we're featuring Winter, Christmas, and Hanukkah inspired cards and projects!  Enjoy the hop and the amazing creations that the Pals have come up with.  You've likely hopped over from Mikki Sarkisyan, I'm stop number 10 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in!  I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Winter, Christmas, and Hanukkah paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals!  Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!
 This is the new stocking sizzix die with the stocking accents sizzix die.  I plan to use this as an accent on a Christmas scrapbook page for Saige.
 This is a CASE from the Stampin' Success magazine (a perk of being a demonstrator).  They did it in Pool Party, but I didn't have any DSP in that color yet.  I switched it up with Poppy Parade.  I added a glimmer brad and a mini jingle bell to take it up a notch.
This box took about 3 minutes to create!  Retired Riding Hood Red ribbon, Tags til Christmas stamp set, the tag punch and some linen thread.
These are gift card holders made with the scallop envelope sizzix die.  I cut my paper to 5x5 and folded it in half.  Lay it on the die with the fold in the center and you'll have an envelope big enough for a gift card to fit in.  I used the Tags til Christmas set, 1 inch square punch, postage punch and some mini jingle bells.  They add just the right amount of bling to a project.

Hop along for more inspiring ideas from Mary Fish, stop number 11 on the November Pals Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!  I hope you enjoyed the projects.  Now is a great time to join my Stampin' Up team.  Join by 11/11/11 and get a free Big Shot!  Ask me how.
