White Pines Blog Hop

Welcome to the White Pines Australasian Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Shaunna Richard's Passionate About Pages, you're in the right spot!

I've been having quite a bit of fun with White Pines lately! I've made heaps of items from ONE White Pines paper packet. These are some of my favorites!

As Christmas 2015 hasn't happened yet, these 2 layouts are blank. I like having pages done early so all I have to do after Christmas is edit my photos, print, trim, stick them down and add some journaling. I really like the variation in colors that this packet offers. I added in some sheets of Kraft cardstock to balance things out.

With the scraps left from my layouts, I made this Advent Calendar! I'll soon be hanging this up in my living room.

Like most adults, I'm a BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG fan of the magical yummy sanity sustaining beverage called COFFEE. I have a favorite reusable tumbler and I like to change up the inside liner periodically. For Christmas, I made this one using Kraft cardstock, a 3"x4" White Pines PML card, a scrap of fussy cut paper, and an array of stickers.
When done, I simply popped the new paper liner inside my cup, screwed it all together and poof!
No more getting my name or drink wrong! :D

Lastly, I've made this pretty little card. I kept the design simple by matching the Glacier ink to the Glacier paper strip, and accented with clusters of embellishments. It's enough dimension to be visually appealing and tactile, while still being flat enough to go in a regular envelope. (Because, postage.)

That wraps it up for White Pines here in my studio. Before you hop around the block, I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
