Saturday, November 28, 2009 Blog Hop {Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co.}

These are my last projects as the guest designer for the month of November at Everything Scrappn. I am so happy I tried out. I enjoyed challenging myself. I probably made the most shabby-chic type pages ever this month playing with all the different products. And ya know what? I love them! Thank you Everything Scrappn for having me. :)

I don't know if you know, but Everything Scrappn has started a forum. You should join! Click here to check it out.

This month's challenge was thought up by Design Team Member Jana. Create something to use with your holiday gift-giving. You should do it, because there will be a prize! Enter a photo of your project by leaving a link in the comment's section on the Everything Scrappn November 27th blog post, also found by clicking here.

I am so lucky, because I got to scrap with my favorite Christmas line introduced this year! I'm not just saying this either. I think I like it so much, because I can see myself using it for more than just Christmas pages. Another reason, these are the perfect shades! I'm not into super traditional pine green and red, but I also don't like the newer trend of mixing in pink. Pink Paislee's Mistletoe & Co. is fantastic! You can view the entire line of it all by clicking here.

I decided to make a gift card holder. Can you guess what this above originally was? It's one of those Starbucks VIA instant coffee sampler packages.

You can write the gift card recipient's name on the outside and even hang it on the tree as an ornament. So much better than some random envelope laying amiss in the pile of presents under the tree!Supplies: Starbucks VIA packaging, Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co patterned papers, WeRMemoryKeepers grommet, Hobby Lobby brads, Marvy corner rounder, Fiskars border edge punch, Fiskars circle punch, Staz on ink, Autumn Leaves swirl stamps, American Crafts Thickers shapes, traced Maya Road classic scroll frame coaster chipboard, Making Memories magnet alpha stamps, Stickles Cinnamon, SNS lace, & SNS ribbon.

I REALLY love this red dotted paper. It's more distressed in person. I had a similar most favorite paper ever stockpiled that was made by Daisy D's, but I am running low and that company is now defunct. I believe this paper called Naughty or Nice from the Mistletoe & Co. collection by Pink Paislee can take my old fave's place!

Feeling ever so inspired, I created this layout below. It is a scraplift of a layout by Miranda Wedekind. Santa visited the kids at church this year in the photos. I was told a professional photographer would be there and I'd get some of the pictures in the mail after Christmas. Yeah, was not too happy when I opened up this tiny envelope full of wallet sized pics! The design of this layout was perfect for this size of photos.

Of course, I had to add my little touches of pop-dot craziness and a little teddy bear to keep it from looking too stuffy to be a little boy's page. Not only is this paper line perfect for Christmas, but it matched my little boy's outfit too!

Here's a close-up view. I think I have 3 different levels of pop-dotted heights!

Supplies: Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co. patterned papers, Bazzill cardstock & swiss dot cardstock, Zva Creative pop dots, Fiskars circle punch, Fiskars border edge punch, Staz On ink, Target dollar spot ampersand chipboard, Basic Grey half pearls swirl in pearl, Prima say it in swirls in pearl, Pink Paislee Fashion Script alpha stickers, Zva Creative light blue pearl, Magistal Memories bear chipboard shape, SNS lace, & SNS ribbons.
