It is time for Trimming the Town with a Crafty Blog Hops

Hello and welcome to my latest blog post,

Today I will be sharing the two projects that I made fir the Crafty Blogs Blog Hop using the Trimming the Town Suite by Stampin’ Up!  

In this suite there is the Coming Home stamp set with co-ordinating dies, Designer Series Patterned Paper, embellishments and ribbons.  


I knew that this would be one of those suites that has so many options but for now I have made a Terry’s Chocolate Orange gift box and a Christmas greetings card.  Every year in my Cards and 3D class we would always make a Terry's Chocolate Orange gift box, then I present them with the chocolate to put in the box, but this year I changed how I made it as I wanted a hinged lid.


One of the sheets of Designer Series Paper sheets had houses and trees on which can be cut out with the co-ordinating dies or fussy cut with scissors.  Most of my past posts will have some fussy cutting on them as I just love doing it, as I find it so therapeutic.  I even used the partial houses and trees to give a 3D effect by adding mini dimensionals after I cut them out.


I wanted to use Stampin’ Up! window sheets for the card front as I could add layers and depth to the card and also incorporate the insert into the card image. 

loved how the Terry Chocolate gift box came together, I loved the gorgeous colours, the patterns on the paper and how I was able to wrap around the bottom of the gift box.

Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:
