Practical Scrappers Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop

In celebration of CHA beginning tomorrow, the team at Practical Scrappers is having a blog hop!  The challenge is to use your stash! Who doesn't need to do that? I know I'm guilty of hoarding my papers!!

Although it isn't a very old collection, I used Heidi Swapp's Christmas line, Believe.  If anything, I have a TON of Christmas paper! It's just all so pretty!  For example, I have the last three October Afternoon Christmas lines in my paper drawer...still sealed.  Sad I know! LOL

I've been wanting to create with this line for awhile..I really love the black that accents the traditional red and green. 

I cut my title on my Silhouette and added journaling that I typed out on my electric typewriter.
Love these coordinating pennants!  I am a big fan of banners and I had to use them! I used my circle punch to cut the "25" from one of the patterned papers. 

More pennants! Love the glittery texture as well! 

I used a punch to create these tags, then accented with bakers twine from Whisker Graphics.

If you are hopping in order, your next stop is Christine's blog!  Thanks for joining us today!  God willing, I will be on my way to Anaheim this afternoon for the show. If you are attending, stop by the
Chic Tags booth to say hi. On Monday morning, I will be doing make and takes in the Clear Scraps booth! 
I will try to post updates from the show while I'm out there! 
Happy Friday!
