Pretty Packages...

Are ya'll ready for another inspiring blog hop chocked full of eye candy?? I know I am :)  

Welcome to another wonderful hop sponsored and hosted by DeNami Design

DeNami December Blog Hop

When: The blog hop starts on December 9th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until December 10, 2012, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
Why: To be inspired by fun DeNami Design creations and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!
Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

You should have arrived here from the super talented Lisa Petrella's blog. I'm sure she stunned you with her creation!! If you didn't arrive here from Lisa's blog don't worry, you can always head over to the DeNami blog for the complete list of participants!
I had so many ideas running through my mind that I ended up creating 3 things! I've seen those cute take out boxes at my big box craft store but have never played with one. I decided it was time....

I love using non-traditional colors for my holiday cards and brought that way of thinking into my little box. I just LOVE red, kraft and blue together.

Another first for me was using Washi Tape...I know, right...I'm an idiot, this stuff is off the hook great!! And how cool was it that I found perfectly matching candy and polka dot Washi??

My second project is kind of an old standby for me. I've created TONS of bags. What's not to love about a personalized bag that matches the card you're giving to someone?
Kinda hard to capture in the picture, but there are stamped silver snowflakes on my panel too.

My final project is something I have a lot of fun creating, gift card holders. I made a tutorial on how to make these that Paulina had on the DeNami blog a while back. You can find it here. They are fun and simple to make. These are for my sister-in-law, she wanted them for teacher gifts.

That's it for me today. It's time for you to head over to visit with Tammy Hobbs. She's always creating such wonderful things for us to enjoy and I can't wait to hop over there myself!!
