Creative Inking Blog Hop — Holiday Gift Ideas from Santa

Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome-welcome...I'm so excited you're traveling the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of November! This months theme is geared around Holiday Gift Ideas and is perfect timing for the craft fair season!  I have a couple of big craft fairs that I need to get ready for, so this hop is a great reminder of just how much I have left to do.  Eeek!


You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.


I'm super excited to share with you this awesome piece of home decor that I created!  Yes, I'm patting my back because my creative "dreams" actually came out the way I envisioned.  This little gem is going to be staying in our family home as I'm already struggling with the idea of gifting it to anyone.  YIKES!!


Anyone that knows me, knows that I can always be found rummaging around the clearance aisle in any big box store searching for any items that are just aching to be repurposed from their original manufactured design.  Already, I have found some great deals and this wooden box was screaming that I take it home for today's blog hop!


I am absolutely in love with EVERY pattern of designer paper found in the Festive Farmhouse pack.  It fits right in with my country girl childhood background.  Something about plaid seems like the perfect match to anything galvanized...buttons, clips and metallic paper...everything can be found on Page 13 in Holiday catalog.


The letters for "Jolly" are several layers thick...meaning I die cut the letter "J" in Basic Black 3 times and topped with the Cherry Cobbler plaid designer paper.  I love dimension and stacking multiple layers just makes the whole focal point pop off of the Festive Farmhouse pattern that was run through the Big Shot with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.



From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!! But, if you want to become a "Happy Shopper" and get all of your favorites on your wish list at a discount, you can purchase the Starter Kit and join my Stampin' Up! family...fill your Starter Kit with what YOU want (up to $125 worth of product)!  How exciting is that?!!   I am always very, very appreciative of your shopping excursion through my online store, too.


So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing the assigned sketch.  Your next stop on the hop will be with Dena Rekow.  I know her projects will not disappoint...she'll have a beautiful creation to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
