Christmas – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty's November Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month's projects celebrate Christmas, which – believe it or not – is just around the corner. Please prepare yourself for lots of beautiful projects that share the joy of this holiday. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I had lots of fun with my projects for today's blog hop! I created a set of 6 cards from the Tag Buffet Project Kit!

These are handmade cards stamped with the Tag Buffet Stampin' Up! stamp set and Tag Buffet kit with various Christmas sentiments.

And how awesome is the gift box the Project Kit comes with!?! Each card measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. I simply just trimmed the tags to fit that size card base. This project kit is full of beautiful elements and pieces to play with and I wanted to show you an alternative to tags! Here's a look at the 6 cards laid out together:

And here they are individually:

I kept the layouts mostly the same as the suggested layouts in the kit, but I decided to add the gold twine in different ways along with some Wonderful Gems for a touch of bling!

I absolutely LOVE this project kit and the stamp set that coordinates with it! The fonts in the stamp set are to die for! Here's a closer look at the stamp set:

I added a sentiment (in a coordinating color) to the inside of each card like this:

  6. Hello Julie.
    My name is Jean Sunderland and I live in Busselton Western Australia.
    Two years ago I watched some tutorials of yours ,and decided I would like to try making some of the boxes, bags and cards but did not have a clue how to get started , so I emailed you to find out how I could find a demonstrator that lived in my area .
    You very kindly looked yourself and sent me two names , which as I looked at them , I had a good feeling about one of the names and quickly got in touch with her.
    She is a gem and I have been having an absolute ball with this fabulous craft ever since
    Your work just blows my mind, it is so incredibly exact and very pleasing to look at.
    I will be celebrating my 80th just before Christmas , but i can honestly say, that when I am crafting I feel like a 40 year old .
    So,,,,,,,, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Julie for getting me off and running with this amazing craft.
    The little hanging box you just made is on my list for Christmas giving .
    Wishing you and yours a safe , contented , loving and happy Festive Season, from my home town of Beautiful Busselton . Sincerely JEAN

    Love that your father said the instructions are where the tickets are.
