October PTI Blog Hop

It's Blog Hop time again!

Here is this month's challenge: "There is always a lot of focus on Christmas in our industry this time of year, as that is what the majority of the population celebrates. However, this month's blog hop is dedicated to those that celebrate winter holidays other than Christmas. Create a project that celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or some other winter holiday as we embrace everyone's beliefs in a celebration of diversity through paper crafting."

I decided to create a Hanukkah card, and it will be very handy to have one ready to send to a friend at the beginning of December!

Oct blog hop

I used the candle and flame from It's a Celebration to create a menorah of sorts. I embossed the candle in white, and the flame in gold. I then cut out the focal image withe the Mat Stack 4 die. Tbe background, stamped in gold ink, is from Background Basics: Tin Type.

Oct blog hop inside

The sentiments for the inside come from Inside and Out: Holidays. I didn't have a Happy Hanukkah sentiment, but I felt that this saying worked well.

Thanks for looking!

Candy Cane Favor Box

Happy Saturday!

I'm recovering from a super busy week that included several halloween parties! I may have one more halloween card to share tomorrow, but today I thought I'd show a simple and cute favor box I made recently.

It uses the Favor It Box 2 die, and the little candy cane image from Tiny Treats: Christmas. I colored the red portion of each candy cane, and some grey for shadows.

Have a great weekend!

Halloween Treats

halloween treats all

Here's my post for the PTI challenge to use one of three stamps set this week!

Here are some treat boxes I made up for my kids' to give to their classmates for Halloween. The box is the Favor It Box 1 and I use Tiny Treats: Valentine for the frame, and Tiny Treats: Halloween for the images. The paper is from a new digital collection by Mari Koegelenberg, Spookville, available today at The Digichick .
