Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - Oct '09 - Holiday Hop

Hello. The month's PTI BlogHop is the Holiday Hop. Here's the challenge: "Show us your best upcoming holiday plans for cards, gifts, wraps or whatever else you have up your sleeve!" I'm a bit of procrastinator, so I'm just now getting around to Halloween projects. I hope that still counts for the holidays.

I made these treat holders using PTI's medium glassine bags. Embossed them with Cuttlebug folders for a little added texture, which I've seen on various blogs. This was my first project using Copics and I'm pretty happy with how the pumpkin turned out (see Nichole's post for my inspiration).

I've missed the last few hops because we're expecting another baby and the first trimester was tiring. It didn't stop me from buying new stamping supplies, just from actually using them much. : )

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
