DeNami Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to your next stop on the DeNami Design Gift Wrapping Blog Hop! If you're on track, you've arrived here from the INCREDIBLY TALENTED Glenda Wyatt's blog! If not...no worries...just click HERE to start at the beginning!

I LOVE making my own packaging for gifts! It's so much fun and it really adds a special touch!!! For today's hop I decided to make a festive gift bag for the winter holiday season!


Those GORGEOUS snowflakes and the whimsical "Let it Snow" sentiment are from DeNami Design! I stamped two snowflake designs in Cherry Pigment Ink (American Crafts)----LOVE LOVE LOVE this rich red ink!!! And I embossed one of the snowflake designs and the sentiment strips with White Zing! Embossing Powder (American Crafts). The border punch at the top is a new one that I received in my WCMD prize box from Paper Crafts Magazine! It's called Argyle (EK Success)---isn't it FABULOUS?!?!? I LOVE IT!


Well, I know it's a big hop, so I won't keep you too long *wink*!
