I've created two fun projects for today's blog hop. The directions for both of these projects can be found on the new 3D and Fun Folds CD from Technique Junkies.

For my first project, I created this adorable Goodie Purse. I stamped the mittens from the new Candy Kisses stamp set from Rogue Redhead Designs onto the sides of the purse. I stamped them again on some coordinating designer paper and paper pieced the mittens on the purse. The sentiment, also from the Candy Kisses set, was stamped and then punched out with an oval punch.


See why this is called a Goodie Purse? I put some "goodies" inside for a sweet little surprise. Won't this be fun to give to a co-worker or a neighbor?



For my second project, I created a Double Slider Card. I used this romantic winter stamp from the Snow Hugs set (Rogue Redhead Designs) and colored it with Copic markers.


See the tab at the top of the card? When you pull on it, the two sentiments slide up. Isn't that sweet?? Both of these sentiments are also in the Snow Hugs stamp set (Rogue Redhead Designs).


I hope you've enjoyed the projects I've created for you today. All of the stamps at Rogue Redhead Designs are on sale right now, so treat yourself to an early Christmas present and go shopping! :-)

If you recall I mentioned yesterday that there was an opportunity to play along. The more you play along, the more times you can enter in for a prize.

If you have never seen a Technique Junkie CD, here is a real example from the 3D and FUN FOLD CD. This sample is called the Double Twisted Easel Card.

Make a project, post about it on your blog or in another forum and mention this blog hop and link up your post to the Blog Hop on Pat Huntoon's blog by Sunday, December 4th at 12 am EST.


Your next stop on the hop is Jane Bosi's blog, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this Blog Hop!
