Pretty Pink Posh: Grand Opening Blog Hop!

Post 2 of 2 for today...check out my The Craft's Meow Blog Hop post HERE


Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh Grand Opening Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from the lovely Lisa Elton's blog, if not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is Paulina's blog, Pretty Pink Posh!


Leave a comment as you hop!  
All comments received on or before December 3rd will go towards the giveaway prizes. The winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog,  Thursday, December 5th.

Pretty Pink Posh is stocked with all kinds of lovelies!  I made three projects especially for today:


First up is a card:


I used a trio of the Festive Gold Christmas Bells to embellish my tags!  They are really the perfect petite size for paper crafting!

Next up is a great little giftie idea:


Christmas in a Jar!

My snow is Sparkling Clear Sequins...aren't they perfect for my project?  They add the right amount of pizazz!

Here's the jar rotated so you can see the fun pink chippie tag...yup, it's been adorned with another trio of Festive Gold Christmas Bells.   It brings out the gold lid and the contrast against the pink....perfect-o!


I knew that I wanted to use the Pretty Pink Posh "Pink Peonies" sequins in a project and I've been noticing a ton of shaker projects out there:


The paper is a mixture of Fancy Pants and Crate.  The sentiment is vintage EAD Designs.

There's a horrible glare on the clear window but as you can see, I essentially die cut through 3 layers.  I popped a bunch of the sequins in an A2 plastic bag and trimmed it down.  I adhered the sides down and nestled it inbetween the layers.  It makes the design more postal friendly using the bag vs foam core tape and acetate panels.

Here's a pic of the interior of the card:


There's a special for the Grand Opening:


You'll definitely want to check out the shop HERE.

Next up is the wonderful Heather Pulvirenti!

A big shout out to Paulina for asking me to join in the fun!  Best Wishes on your new venture Paulina!!!!
