Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™


 Hey Y'all!  Welcome to a wonderful fun hop chalked full of eye candy!  It's getting that time of year, all the sparkly and glittery things are being seen everywhere!  (LOVE!)  And now, with this new line from Gina K. Designs  and Therm O Web, its going to make your holiday cards, packages and giving look so good they will not want to open them!  :D  

First up, I'd like to show you a boxed set of cards I made using Gina k. stamps and the Foil Mates line:

For my little box of 5 flat card  with envelopes I followed Gina's video of  how to make a Memory Keeper!  It was back in 2010, but sooo awesome!  I have used the new StampTV kit also, Merry and Bright.  And now a picture of it opened and the cards:


And one last one from the set.  It's soo hard to show them in all of their shiny glory!  :D


These were so super quick and easy with the new holiday line of Foil-Mates™!  Which is coming in super handy for me this year...our little town is having their Christmas on the Main and I'm gonna do a booth this year!  Yay fun!  :D  With these, it is!

AND I have also made a TAG box...a box I will be selling at the Christmas on the Main too.  I havent decided exactly how many tags to put into each box yet though...what do ya think?  10?  15?   I would love to hear what you think!  

Here is my little tag book closed.  I used a simple tie on the side to keep closed.  On the front here I have used a die that matches Melanie's new set, Fabulous Labels Die set




Here is it is opened: 


I have some of the twine and ribbon already attached and will also include some extra ribbon and twine in the boxes.  I have decorated the inside of the box with Melanie's set, Fabulous Holiday Labels

AND just want to tell you to be sure and do the hop with all of us!  Because as usual, Gina is giving away a $25 Gift Certificat!  So be sure and leaves comments on all the blogs to increase your chance to win!  The winner will be announced  a few days after the hop in the Big News Forum on StampTV!

Ready for some awesome eye candy and inspiration?!  Just follow the links below!  I cant wait to see what all they created too!

The way you have the box set up, you should go with 12 or 16, so you have the same number of 4 different tags, one type per pocket.

Have fun!
