UStamp "Up on the Rooftop" Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top 2011 World Showcase Holiday Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Tonya Boser's CD envelope treat holders...I just love those little snowmen!!!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FABULOUS projects we have for you.

My project is a children's Christmas tree.  I wanted to make a project that was family oriented for the season.  My children love having their own Christmas tree in their room so I thought involving them in the decorations would make it that much more special......
 The ornaments were so fun and easy to make using Stampin' UP! punches.  Here is a close up of the 2 ornaments that adorn the tree......

I love the Holly Berry Bouquet designer paper for the vibrant and colorful!!!!  The garland was made using the dotted glitter sheet and the stocking accents die for the big shot.
If you wanted to give this as a gift here is a coordinating card to go with the project....

I just love the house covered in snow from the Christmas Lodge stamp set.  The Christmas Lodge DSP coordinates well with it.  The house was embossed with our new cherry cobbler embossing's AWESOME!!!!!

Halloween Favors

I haven't really been able to post lately....I have been recovering from some surgery and have had to lay low.  I was able to whip up some halloween favors for my children's teachers.  I too some cello bags that SU! is selling and put in candy corn flavored M&Ms.   I made candy corn adornment by punching daffodil delight, pumpkin pie and whisper white cardstock with the pennant punch.  Cut them apart and glued them together to look like candy corns.  I punched "happy halloween" with the label punch and tied them with retired chocolate chip ribbon.  I added the "boo" decor element to the jar.  It was so easy to put on.  On the square jar I added some I was adding them I couldn't help but think how realistic they looked....very spooky!!!!!!  Enjoy!!!!!!!
