Visit all of today’s Holiday Hoppin’ blogs:
And if you missed yesterday and want to see more you can start here at the Stamping Scrapping Design Team blog.
    Today I am focusing on Spellbinders S4-283 2010 Heirloom Ornament die templates and also using Beaded Ovals die templates, Lacey Squares die templates, SSD Lacey Squares, Classic Squares Small, Fancy Tags, SSD Celebrate  and SSD Beaded Ovals stamps by Stamping Scrapping, I-Rock tool, Bildmalarna Excited MimosaBildmalarna Where’s Santa, Bildmalarna Cozy Hearth and copics.

    Here is my project.

     IMG_1455 (Small)

    I chose to make a Christmas morning scene. What better way to showcase these great Heirloom dies.

    IMG_1456 (Small)

    On top of the box I cut four #4 (2 7/8  x 4) and placed the points in each corner. I then used the lacey squares on top of the ornament cut outs. I added rhinestones to the corners and also to the SSD Lacey Squares stamps.  Here is a close up of the lid.

    IMG_1457 (Small)

    For the sides of my box I cut out the opening using #5 ( 3 3/4 x 5 1/8). I added vinyl for my opening and then cut another ornament using the #4 & #5 heirloom dies.

    IMG_1460 (Small)

    Above is a side profile picture of looking through two sides of the box. I also added hanging ornaments that used the #1 heirloom die template.


    IMG_1459 (Small)

    Here is a side picture of the box.

    IMG_1461 (Small)

    And another SSD stamp. These are wonderful stamps, they are interchangeable with several Spellbinders dies, and they stamp fantastically.


    IMG_1458 (Small)  

    Is there more? Yes, there is a few more.

     IMG_1462 (Small)

    On the inside of the box is a Christmas morning scene. Imagine sitting by the fire opening presents? Well, that is exactly what my scene is. 

    IMG_1464 (Small)

    Little Mimosa opening presents complete with torm wrapping paper.

    IMG_1463 (Small)

    And Mimosa checking to see who is under that Santa hat. It appears to be Mimo.

    IMG_1465 (Small)

    And my final pic is the wall hanging that is part of the decor of the ‘house’ and that is a wall hanging using the Beaded Ovals template and SSD stamps.

    Now, what do you do next?
    Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin’ Prize Package!  One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today.  Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win.  Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes.
