Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop

Welcome to the Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop, if you are following the Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop you should have come from Angie Valle-Peters Blog Paper Luxuries. If you did not come from Angie's Blog and would like to start from the beginning here is the SU Stars Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop Start  .

I love the Holiday Stocking Die. It is adorable. It doesn't just need to be used for Christmas! I have seen it used to make a Halloween Witches Shoe and for a Baby's Sock. The one idea I would never have thought of is a Stick Pony.  I used mine as the traditional Christmas Stocking. The Designer Paper I used is Letters to Santa. 

  This is what the box looks like, I used the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die. I also cut out a red stocking for the inside so the box wouldn't standout. When mounting the Fancy Favor Box use Sticky Strip tape, so it will stay secure.

My second box is a penguin box. I love making these they are so easy and cute! I love penguins, that was the animal that my sorority family had. I still have penguin Christmas ornaments from ornament swaps 24 years ago . To make this cutie, use the top note die, oval punch, 1/2in. circle punch, and the curly label punch.

 For the box, I again used the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die, 
Love It!

For my third and last project I have a Christmas Card. This card is an easy card to make, not time consuming, but Festive.

I used the larger snowflake from the stamp set Season of Joy. The smaller snowflake is from Punch Pals. I love being able to mix and match our stamp set. The Designer Series Paper is also from Letters to Santa. The scallops came from the Bigz XL Die, Tasteful Trim. The bottom is embossed using the new Snow Burst, textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Mini. I was not going to get this then, I saw some samples with the Snow Burst, of course changed my mind.

Don't forget to leave me a comment or even better sign-up to follow my blog.
