October NinaB Designs Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly NinaB Designs team blog hop. NinaB Designs is a product designer for a few paper crafting companies including Spellbinders, Want2Scrap, Penny Black, and The Craft's Meow. For this month's hop, Nina challenged the team to create an ornament or tags, which will come in handy in the upcoming holidays. 

The holidays provide many opportunities for paper crafters to give an extra personal touch to every occasion.  Whether you are doing place cards for a dinner, tags for gift giving or even just hand made projects using your supplies on hand, it is a blessed season indeed!

Today I have two projects to share that I try to make before the craziness of December hits.  First is an ornament using Penny Black Hanging Treasures and Penny Black Madison Paper Pack.

I stamped the ornament 4 times on a piece of patterned paper from the Madison Paper Pack using Clearsnap Strawberry ink.  Then die cut each stamped ornament using the coordinating Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die.  I scored down the center of each ornament using my Scor-Buddy and glued them together with Zip Dry glue. I added some twine and a heart charm...here is a close-up of the ornament stamped onto the pale blue polka dot patterned paper:

These would be fun to make with kids!!! 

Next, I wanted to share some tags I made using the same Madison Paper Pack, the tree die from Sweet Folk Art and a sentiment from Peace on Earth (a beautiful new stamp set illustrated by Nina for Penny Black).  I die cut the tree and layered it onto a die Labels 10 (which was embossed with a Polka Dot folder). 

It was very easy to create several in a short amount of time!


Here are the products I used for my ornaments and tags:
