Papertrey Ink's December Blog Hop

Winter break! A chance to play in Papertrey's Blog Hop!
Challenge: Holiday Leftovers It's that time again for our annual holiday leftovers challenge! Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project. We all have plenty of it laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty little things into an amazing piece of art!
I've always been pretty bad when it comes to wrapping gifts. I tend to have a lot of scrap paper left over which I've managed to save. I love Costco wrapping paper! I took two cues from Papertrey's leading ladies - I was inspired by Nichole using the scor-tape and glitter. Love. Inspiration came from Heather Nichols about kraft cardstock with white distressed edges. Thanks for stopping by and happy blog hopping! My Supplies: wrapping paper (Costco), whisper white craft ink (Stampin' Up!), basic black ink (Stampin' Up!), winter sentiment is from Peace Be Still (Papertrey Ink), white gold glitter (Martha Stewart), scor-tape (Papertrey Ink), kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink)

  20. Boy, that glittery frame really makes an impact -- I think especially against the more rustic Kraft. Love it!

  23. Doesn't Costco have the BEST Christmas paper & tags? The sheen on the paper gives such a lovely window pane effect. The glittery frame is the icing on the cake. Excellent work.
