If you lose your way while hopping, you can scroll down and see the list of hoppers! Did you just come from Chery's blog? Wasn't her projects amazing!!! Be sure to continue to Anne Marie's after you finish!
Today I am certainly taking advantage of the anything goes theme with a little Christmas in July!! It's never to early to start planning cards and gift packing! I have prepared for you a Christmas card and a little treat bag. I found these adorable bags at Walmart on clearance! They a good size!!! The rest of products used are all current through Stampin UP.
I used the Dashing Deer Stamp set from Stampin Up on both the giftbag and card.
I stamped the deer in Shaded Spruce, the greeting in Real Red and I colored the little holly strip with Real Red and Shaded Spruce markers and cut this out using the Layering Circles dies.
I wrapped the bag in the Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon and finished it with a bow!
For the card I added the matching Detailed Deer dies and cut out a deer. The card base is Shaded Spruce layered with Whisper White. I used the Layering Squares dies to cut out the 2 squares. I also stamped a deer in Real Red and cut it out with the matching die. I used the Woodland Embossing Folder and embossed on a piece of vellum and then sponged over the images with Sahara Sand ink. I also added a little Wink of Stella over the trees to make them glitter, unfortunately you can't see it in the pictures!.
I hope you enjoyed the projects I have prepared for you! I'd love to hear what you think, so please be sure to leave a comment below!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

For this week card club I decided to get in the holiday spirit. Normally my card club consist of 4 cards, 2 each design. But instead I've included 2 notecards, 2 gift card holders and 8 coordinating tags all projects use the DSP Home for Christmas
So I've had several requests to post the instructions for the notebook set I posted a few days back.
So here you go, it's very simple:
Notebook: You will need 1 sheet of card stock 8 1/2 x 11. With the 11" side on the top score at 5 1/4" and 5 3/4". Fold on the score lines.
To create the pocket on the inside, cut a piece of card stock to 6 1/2 x 4 3/4. Score at 1/2" & 3/4" on 3 sides. Fold on the score lines, you will need to cut up to the 3/4" score lines at the bottom of you pocket. Use a strong adhesive to glue to inside left of the cover. The pocket will measure 5 x 4 when done.
On the inside right you can glue the 5x8 notepad.
Depending on how you choose to decorate the front cover is up to you.
You will need to cut 2 pieces of card stock for base 4 3/8" x 4 3/8" & for the lid 4 7/16" x 4 7/16"
Using the Simply Scored scoring tool, Score st 5/8" on all 4 sides of the base and lid.
To create the hinge on the lid. Take the lid piece and score at 2" down to the 5/8" mark. Turn it over and make sure the 2" scored line you made, lines up to the 2" mark on the left side of your simply scored tool. Now on the top measurements score at 2" again down to the 5/8" mark.
Fold on all score lines on base and lid. You do not need to fold the 2" scored lines.
Before you assemble, cut the circle opening with the Circle Framelits on the lid. I then too a pieces of the window sheet and cut the next size up with the frame,it and glued it on the inside.
I took a piece of DSP cut it to 3x3. Cut a circle (slighter bigger than the size on the lid) and adhere on top.
Take lid and a ruler and line up the edge to the 2" marks and using a stylus or bone folder score a diagonal line.
Cut up on score lines to create the box. Also cut up the 2" lines and fold the diagonal opposite this will hinge the box. Assemble the lid and base.
You then want to glue that corner piece onto the card base.
I punched the bow using the Bow maker punch with same card stock and used reverse side.
Today I finalized my Christmas card design. I'm so happy! Once I figured out what I wanted to do I was on a roll. I'll give a sneak peak, but you'll have to wait for Christmas to see the cards. I will share that I used the Home for Christmas DSP. Love this paper!! I prepped as much as I could and stamped enough for 100 cards. But I had to place an order for supplies. I can't wait for the order to come in so I can keep going. Just need to print out our family picture. And when it's all prepped, assembled! Wah-la!!! Definitely feeling accomplished today!
