Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop

27 August 2015

Hello and welcome to our Grand Vacation Blog Hop for August. The blog hop was created to celebrate those who had earned a Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation this year, to showcase our creations and share our love of Stampin' Up!

The theme for this blog hop is Holiday Catalogue Sneak are going to want to make sure you 'hop' to next person after me - Louise Sharp - on the link list and don't miss any inspiring projects from demonstrators from around the world!!

The Holiday Catalogue....SWOON.
OH.MY.GOODNESS.....Forget about eating, it's overrated! Hahaha. You are going to want just about everything in this catalogue, and will be available to purchase products after the 1st September 2015.

I have a created a sweet Christmas Table Setting.
 I LOVE doing up the table for Christmas and hosting parties, you can see last years team party >here<. I just knew when the catalogue came I had to start thinking about a table settings!

Placemat: Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper - page 9
Favor/Gift: Muslin Bag (from Annual Cattie) ; Oh,What Fun Stamp Set - page 5
Name Tag: Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set - page 21
Straw: Jingle All the Way Stamp Set - page 12

The little bit of holly was cut from the nutcracker stamp from the Sparkly Seasons Stamp Set on page 40. I printed out the name tag myself using the same font as the stamp set, which is called Peoni Pro. The gorgeous (if I say so myself) Muslin Bag has been painted using water and Read Red Ink and I set it aside to dry overnight. Simple!
