Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers! and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop.  Stampin' Up! had really done a super job with the new Holiday Mini Catalog that has just been released and customers can start ordering from it on September 1st!  Hopefully checking out the blog hop will help you decide on some products to get you started on your way to some crafty fun.  We will also be doing a Winter Holiday Blog Hop soon so be sure to watch for that.   There are 7 stops in the hop and if you are hopping in order then you have just arrived from Rhonda's blog The Stampin' Bunny where she did a beautiful job showcasing "Among The Branches" stamp set.  Great job Rhonda!  Now let me tell you a little about the stamp set I am showcasing.  It is called "A Little Something" bundled with the "Square Pillow Box" Thinlits Dies makes for some great crafting.  So let's get started!
Oh this Holiday mini is jammed packed with so many fun things!!!  For my first project I decided to go with a square card.  Using Old Olive as my base I then added another layer embossed with our new Woodland folder adding the Grateful For You saying from the stamp set I chose with a little of the Into The Woods DSP, topped of with a burlap and gold twine bow, and accented with an acorn I made using the new Acorn punch!  So much new fun stuff!  One fun little tip - I used the Lovely Lace emboss folder for my acorn top.
Project #2 - Thinking of you Actually a very simple card.  Using Mossy Meadow for my background I then added a piece of the Into the Woods DSP For some color layered behind one of our doilies.  I used the Leaf framlit die from Square Pillow Box Framlits collection.  I then added some scraps of colored cardstock behind it.  
Project #3  "A Little Something For You" Pillow Box  The box itself was made with Mossy Meadow cardstock and then I added a few of the stamped leaves in the same color.  A bellyband of the Into the Woods DSP and some more layers of other colors with a little gold Glimmer Paper and topped off with the saying.  I will say I think one of my favorite products from the big catalog is the Triple banner punch.  It makes 3 different sizes of banner tips and I think I used that punch in all of my projects.
My last projects is a fun little treat bag of candy bones.  Aren't they super cute!  and they are good too. lol  I used the Tag Punch for my saying and also another tag with spiders stamped on it.  Added a bit of the Black Glimmer Paper and a bit of Spider Web doily, topped off with a silver sequin and a silver cord bow makes a perfect little treat for any little goblin.  (I purchased the Candy Bones in a beaker at Cracker Barrel just in case you want to know.)  I had so much fun playing with this stamp set and framlits set.  I hope you enjoyed viewing my projects.  Now it's time to "hop" on over to Yapha's blog Yapha and view the beautiful projects she has created using the Lighthearted Leaves Stamp Set.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hopping!
