TE Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop!




Hello Friends! Taylored Expressions is hosting a Holiday Hoopla today and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. You should have arrived here from the blog of the fabulous Lisa Hjulberg. If you didn't and would like to start at the beginning hop on over to Taylor's blog for the full list of participants. There are 22 designers showcasing Christmas/Winter/Holiday stamps sets from TE with samples that include all sorts of projects from cards to gifts and beyond! We want to inspire you to get your holiday crafting and card making into high gear! Be sure to stick with me all the way to the end of the post to get a coupon code for 25% off holiday stamp sets at Taylored Expressions!


The set I'm featuring is the adorable Holiday Wonder set. I love the sweet images and the wonderful sentiments. A perfect set to use for creating a gift card holder. Simply die cut 1 panel for the front of the gift card holder using a Labels 8 Die. Use the die again to cut only half a panel for the back of the gift card holder. Adhere the panels together to create the pocket to hold your gift card. Next add some twine and a button to the top of your gift card holder, so it can easily be attached to another gift or hung up on the tree. Finally decorate the front of your gift card holder with your favorite images. I chose the adorable house image and I had to add Cuppie peeking out the window. I used the Holly Jolly Christmas 6x6 paper by Echo Park for the base and to paper piece the house image. Finally I added the sentiment and embellished the front and back with snowflakes and gems. You can also easily add To: and From: to the back of the gift cardholder.

I had so much fun creating this project. It reminded me of another fun Taylored Expressions Holiday project I created using Home Sweet Home for Christmas in July.
