Club Anya's All Customer Holiday Blog Hop!



Hello and welcome to my blog, everybody! Hope this Monday evening is greeting you with merriment and delight! These projects are for the Club Anya Blog Hop! Am so excited for this as I love blog-hopping and discovering new, awesome blogs. And it also pushed me to create a couple of extra Holiday projects!

These Anya & Ian 'take-out' boxes were originally Basic Grey (2005). But I embellished them a bit & will use them as holders for baked goods! There's a boy version and a girl version. I am big on using non-traditional colors for Christmas cards and gifts -- hope you like them! I think the yellow and blue make them bright and happy! Here are more pics:







For the 'snow flakes' on their hats, I used kol laj fels flakes. The brads are from American Crafts. The DSPs are from Cosmo Cricket and Crate Paper. The alpha stickers are from My Little Shoebox, and the gaffer tape is from 7 gypsies. Other supplies include Copics, flower, and ribbons.

And lastly, here is a card I made for the hop. I used Elf Anya and Wild Sprouts Vivi (I know though that we were not supposed to use any Sprouts). For this, I used the traditional green and red with touches of yellow. This card is also for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Week 2. I originally wanted to alter either Anya or Vivi into a boy so that this card would be for my DH. But I decided to make more of a girly card! :)



Supplies for this include American Crafts for the CS. The striped red and white DSP is from a flower-making kit. The painted papers and squares are from kol laj. The Xmas tree stamp is from Purple Onions. Other items used were Copics, mesh net, paper clip.

Thanks for visiting, everyone!! I'd love to hear comments from you and I hope you pop in again! Have fun tonight! Can't wait to see your projects as well!
