Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop - Seeing 3D

Blog Hop, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersWelcome to Stampin' Up!'s Grand Vacation Achiever's Blog Hop.  The theme for this month is Seeing 3D.  I'm sure you are going to have see some incredible inspiration on this hop. 

You may be just starting the blog hop here on my blog;  BJ Peters or you may have come from another blog.  If you get off track at any time, check the list on the bottom of this post. 

Did you know it's your lucky day?  For this hop, I'm sharing a couple projects.  In the United States, we are approaching winter and the Christmas Holiday season.  It's a time where we all think about gift giving.  Enjoy my inspiration and think of your Holiday Gift giving list - which projects will make your gift giving easy? 

Snowman Gift BagHere's a Snowman Gift Bag - this cute little guy sports a gift card pouch in the front and of course there's room for a little gift in the bag!   This snow man uses the circle framelits and a few punches.  He was shared with my by my friend Jill H.  Customers ordering from me in November received a free tutorial on how to make him. 

Flurry of Wishes, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersHere's a quick and easy candy treat - full of Hershey Nuggets wrapped with Merry Moments designer series paper (DSP).  The tag is stamped using using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set on a tag punched with the Note Tag punch.  Easy Peasy.

Nugget Tree, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersIf you want more Hershey Nuggets, this cake is made of them using Nuggets wrapped from the Home for Christmas DSP.  Nummy.  My customers loved this class earlier this fall so, I'll be repeating it on December 5 with this Christmas version. 

I could keep going with more inspiration but, I know there's more awesome inspiration waiting for you on the other stops of this blog hop - so after you are done checking out the supply list for my projects, make sure you check out everyone on the blog hop list below!

The Must Have 5 Retiring Stamp Sets

Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog retiring list was released last week.  With everything going on (birthday, food poisoning, work, etc), I am remiss in giving you my top 5 Must Have Stamp sets from this catalog.   Let me tell you though, I had a hard time narrowing it down to 5.  Drumroll please!

1.  Lighthearted Leaves - Coordinates with the Leaflets framelits.  Love how they look so fabulous with multiple techniques. 

Lighthearted Leaves2.  Among the Branches - I love the versatility of this stamp set because it covers multiple seasons.  What I love even more is the Woodland embossing folder (retiring too!) that comes when you order the Among the branches bundle at 15% off. 

Among the Branches3.  Wonderland - I love the trees - what can I say. . . I just have to look past the antlers - maybe someday I'll find a use for them. 

Wonderland4.  Jingle All the Way - Love the bundle - the framelits are the bomb!

PicMonkey Collage5.  Howl-o-Ween Treat - another bundle with framelits - got to have them!

Howl-o-Ween TreatHope this helps!   Get them while you can!   Make sure you check out the whole retiring list!
