Welcome to a little Autumn Winter inspiration from the Isle of Wight

Pinkies Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you have arrived here from Sam's blog, hello and welcome to you. I hope you enjoyed Sam's crafty project.

My crafty share today is inspired by the lovely creative products for gift wrapping and packaging in the Autumn Winter Catalogue. As soon as I got a glimpse of this new catalogue I instantly fell in love with all the lovely tags, boxes, bags and embellishments and much of my preorder focused on these products as I couldn't wait to get started with them.

Today I have created a gift bottle bag embellished with the fabulous Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit and an embellished Decorative Window Gift Box.

 For regular readers of my blog you will recognise the black gift bag. My lovely Mum was given a huge bundle of these at work and they have featured a lot in my recent seasonal crafting. I think the lovely paper rosette from the Banner Kit is set off beautifully by the black background.

The Banner Kit contains: paper and centers for 4 rosettes, 3 glittered die-cut accents, 2 18"-pieces of Silver 1/8" Ribbon, 2 18"-pieces of Bermuda Bay/Pool Party 1-1/4" Two-Toned Ribbon, 36" Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, 5 Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, 10 Large Rhinestone Jewels. And it can be used for a great deal more than simply creating a beautiful Christmas banner.

The second of my projects is this lovely Decorative Window Box which I have embellished with Season of Style Designer Series Paper and a Merry cut with my absolute favourite product from the new Autumn Winter catalogue, the Expressions Thinlits Dies. To keep the box closed I have wrapped a length of Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon and closed with a Antique Brad.

The next stop on the hop today is Gill. Please hop on over to see what she has been creating with our fabulous new catalogue products.

Thank you for joining me today for my little part of the hop.
