Adorned Holiday Blog Hop!

If you find yourself at The Shabby Stamper, then you must be following the PCS Adorned Holiday Blog Hop from Melanie Schulenberg's beautiful blog, Pockets of Inspiration!

The December Paper Crafters Sampler has three new Holiday templates.  These three templates are available for to all those who purchase the "Adorned Holiday" Sampler. You can find the Sampler here. 

The first of the templates is a darling little sled box, complete with a pull rope so that you could hang it off the tree! Underneath the sled portion is a cunning little box, just the right size to hold sweets, cookies or even crayons.  Mine is made out of Well Worn dsp and Riding Hood Red.  The holly leaves were stamped with Pines & Poinsettias out of Always Artichoke, and tucked around a long bow made from Riding Hood Red 3/8" taffeta ribbon.

The Limoges box looks difficult, but is actually very easy to put together.  I made mine out of Elegant Soiree dsp and decorated it with Not Quite Navy 5/8" taffeta ribbon, Early Espresso 1/4" taffeta ribbon, Pearl Jewels and Scallop Edge trim cut out of Early Espresso.  The paper rose at the top  is made out of Not Quite Navy using Melanie Schulenberg's fabulous video tutorial.   

Santa's sleigh is the perfect size to hold nuts, mints, little ornaments or any other thing that you'd like to tuck inside!  Mine is made out of Frostwood Lodge dsp and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  It's trimmed with Garden Green Scalloped Edge border and decorated with Pearl Jewels and a pretty double bow made from Cherry Cobbler seam binding.

Now onward to the next blog in the Hop, Vicki Burdick's gorgeous blog, It's a Stamp Thing!

You're projects came out Great Lisa! The color schemes for each are unique. I like the way you used DSP for the sleigh, gives it a more modern design.

Beautiful projects!

I love the rustic look of the sleigh and sled! Those ornaments look so beautiful in the sleigh! And wow - the NQN embellishments on the limoge are perfect!
