December already? No way!

I cannot believe that it is December already!!   I know I say this at the beginning of nearly every month, but November really did fly by in a blink.  There has just been so much going on!  Major changes going on at work.  My baby turns 6 today.  SIX!!!!!!!!  We’re talking about taking the plunge and putting our house on the market.  We’ve outgrown the little house that we moved into 11 years ago.  Ok, let’s be real here……….. my Stampin’ Up! collection is seriously in need of its own space.  I have been confining my work station to the dining room table for a while now.  I’m ready to get seriously serious about getting out there and helping others learn to love these products as much as I do!

Now, with that being said, it’s time for a little Blog Hop Action.  It is time for the Global Stampin’ Friends December blog hop.  Our theme for the month is “All wrapped up.”  I have had so much fun scouring YouTube and Pinterest for ideas.  Below are my takes on some great tutorials from Anne’s Happy Stampers, Pootles Papercrafts, and the Artisan Design Team.


The top 2 were done using Candy Cane Lane DSP, vellum, and Real Red baker’s twine.

The next 2 were made using Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum, and Whisper White card stock, the Fancy Frost sequins, and stamped in Pool Party with the Tin of Tags photopolymer stamp set, and tied with Sweet Sugarplum glitter ribbon.

Finally, the last box was made using Crumb Cake, Pool Party, and Island Indigo card stock, Blooms and Bliss DSP, Pool Party glitter ribbon (retired), and stamped in Island Indigo with the Tin of Tags photopolymer stamp set.

I had so much fun making these little boxes and can’t wait to see what our next Global Friend comes up with!
