Alaska Achievers Blog Hop November 2017

Welcome to our latest Alaska Achievers Monthly Blog Hop, with fellow Demonstrators who have also earned the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip, that only a limited number around the world achieve.

We will be hopping together every month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up! products.  I live in a small village just outside Attleborough in Norfolk, UK and would love to help you if you have any questions. 

Today I'm sharing some gift wrapping ideas I have made in the last few days.  When you realise the photo of one of your projects gifted over the weekend didn't save, after the moment of sheer panic ..... you rustle up another one, very quickly, before the Blop Hop commences !!!

I'm loving the Merry Music Speciality Designer Series Paper #144623, with its fabulous 24 sheets of lightweight paper, you have twice as much to complete your projects with !

I have previously enjoyed making boxes for Terrys Chocolate Oranges every year, but was thrilled to discover this design to share with my class.  Crafters always love trying different box ideas and this one was featured at my Festive Envelope Punch Board #133774 class at the weekend and contains a Terrys Chocolate Orange, but is so versatile for any small gift.

Gifting a bottle of wine is always nicer when you can create nicely decorated packaging.

With some beer mats requested from one of my regular customers for another project, I have been using the remainder on other projects.  Sponging the edges of a circular beer mat along a Basic Black Archival ink pad #140931 and covering with two circles of Basic Black card to the same size, was the perfect fit for the base to stand on.

Thank you for joining us today - we are all so happy that you are taking part in our blog hop.  Please grab a cuppa and continue 'hopping' round the globe, viewing all the incredible inspiration along your tour.  If you have time to add some comments too, they are always very welcome.
