Anything But a Card Blog Hop


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. The full hop line-up is shown below and will help you move along from blog to blog so that you may see all the projects.


I wanted to make simple Christmas gift tags for the Anything But a Card Blog Hop.  I grabbed the Stampin’ Up! Merry Tags Framelits Dies.  Basic Black card stock and the dies produce a crisp, modern silhouette!

  • Playing favorites!  The classy plaid patterns are from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack, my current favorite from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.


  • Tag You’re It!  I used the Stampin’ Up! Banner Triple Punch and Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to crop both ends to perfection!


  • Stick-on Cherry Cobbler dots and a Garden Green star are from Stampin’ Up! Regals Enamel Shapes.
