Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for November 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects feature items that are considered 3D, Home Décor or Gift Sets. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I have a fun one for you today! This is a G R E A T (as Fred Flintstone would say) and this is one that would be super for a gift for just about anyone!!!!






I just love it when the PALS have a Blog Hop and I will say, this theme is FUN! I am still away so my supplies are very limited but I did bring this Framelit with me as I always have FUN making this sweet little popcorn box! I did not have the stamp set with me but I just made it work with the supplies I have with.



Ready to POP, Stampin' Up!



I will say, there are times that I do not purchase the bundle as I feel like I will only use 1 element of it (rarely happens) but this one is one that I WOULD purchase as a bundle. The (2) long vertical stamps are super for card making as they always add a special touch and I also love the little “squiggle”

The long vertical ones work perfectly if you want to stamp on the box…heat emboss etc. I adore the floral one when you stamp it with versamark and then just “let it dry” to give it a tone on tone or better yet, heat it with clear embossing powder.

When I am using a DSP like today, I always like to “back it up” with a Cardstock for stability. It is super easy to do as the lines are already scored for you and I use the green glue…let it “set up” – and then use then the bone folder to give it a super crease!






I truly believe that it is great to have a couple of 3-D in your stash as they really are super quick to make and they also are perfect for that “little something” to brightens someones day!

Today I used the Warmth and Cheer DSP Stack Paper but I also cut this die out with a piece of thick whisper white and then simply adhered them together….gave them a good scored and did the final adhering to the sides.

To layer these papers together I did use good old “green glue” but I used the tear -n tape to adhere the side as I wanted a good and super strong hold.






The FUN inside my Popcorn Box is a refill kit from the Paper Pumpkin from October. The refill is still available and it is just adorable. I truly do not think that you can go wrong with stocking up on them but remember, you need to be a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber to get the refill. The refill contains the below and have no worries about the Halloween images…you will definitely use them next year, they are adorable!

Remember, you can sign up for a Paper Pumpkin for just 1 month and be done if it is not for you (it is just $20 and than includes shipping). There is something special about the next kit ( I bet it is a holiday super cute one) and the cut off for getting it is tomorrow so I would hit that button below and get it for a month and then you would be able to order this refill!





With today’s fun…I used (3) test tubes = and this would allow you to make (8) gifts from an $8.00 refill (woot-woot) and I filled it with Hot Chocolate, crushed mints and mini marshmallows! Truly, the sky is the limit as well as you want it to be! (I tucked in a Starbucks gift card) so you can easily see that this is a great gift!






The ornament is from the Merriest Wishes Ornament Set and this is just a Holiday Classic and will never go out of style. (That means to me…it will never leave Randall Lane!!! 🙂 ) Not only are the Ornaments great…the sentiment of “Be Joyful” is just stunning, here is a card that I did with it and I just adore it.








I know.,…I know ~ that many of you are skeptical about 3-D projects….but trust me, they are FUN! I encourage you to look at your stash and see what you have that can make great gifts! This IS one that will do so…..

Now you need to go HOPPING and how fitting is that Mary Fish is TOP of the list…as she deserves it – just coming back from my fun trip and not only was Mary #1 in the USA…..but she was #1 in the WORLD!!!! It was a great time…and one that she sooooooo deserves! Have FUN and I will see you tomorrow!
