August Blog Hop Holiday Style


Welcome to the Stylin Stampin' Blog Hop, whether you are just joining us or have hopped over from Rose's Blog I hope you continue on your journey through all the blogs and see the wonderful projects all the ladies made  and feel free to leave a comment as we love to hear from all of you.
August is here which means the Holiday Mini starts! I love this mini and so many of the items in it are on my list to buy but to start out I decided to be good and only get a few which I will share my favorite with you today. It is the new Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies and Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set. Now Stampin'Up! has made this an even better deal by making it a bundle so you save more money. Which means you can buy more stamps, accessories, card stock. Well I think you get how it works.
My first project is inspired by the wonderful ornaments that are in the Mini Catalog. I knew that I wanted to make my own and the picture below shows just how mine turned out. To make it easier to tell which supplies are new in the Mini I am going to make them bold in the supply list.

Supplies: Very Vanilla Card Stock, Cherry Cobbler Card Stock, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, Gumball Green Classic Ink, Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Ornament Keepsake Stamp Set, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Bigz, Pearl Basic Jewels
Next I wanted to make a scrapbook page. The page is an 8"x8" page and features a picture of my kids from last years Christmas. I used their clothing colors to inspired the colors of the project. I rarely scrapbook anymore so I am always happy when the mood strikes and I feel like finishing a page. I think I will frame this one for a while just to show off my kids.
Scrapbook page supplies: Crumb Cake Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, Garden Green Card Stock, Garden Green Classic Ink Pad and Stampin' Write Marker, Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink Pad and Stampin' Write Marker, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Scallop Edge Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies, and Ornaments Keepsakes Stamp Set

My final project is a Christmas Card. The Triple Stamping is very popular right now and I haven't had the chance to try it and thought that the Ornament Keepsake Set would be perfect to give it a try with. It is a pretty simple technique and I will write a post in the next few days on how it is done but for now here is the card.
Ornament Card Supplies: Early Espresso Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Lucky Limeade Classic Ink Pad, Primrose Petal Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad. Lucky Limeade 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Very Vanilla Card Stock, Petite Pairs Stamp Set, Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set
I hope you enjoyed today's projects and the new Ornament Keepsake Bundle. I am looking forward to making more projects with this bundle so be sure and check back again.
