Today I’m sharing some Christmas Pines projects for the Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop. This is a blog hop open to those demonstrators around the world who earned the Flex Points required to get an all expenses paid trip for 2 to Alaska! There are only 442 worldwide who have achieved the necessary points, and I’m one of them. I’m humbled to be in such great company! Make sure you hop around to see the global inspiration for you!

Christmas Pines for the Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop

Christmas Pines stamps and Pretty Pines Thinlits make some beautiful Christmas themed projects for the Alaskan Achievers Global Monthly Blog Hop! Pip Todman Crafty Coach & Stampin' Up!

The gift bag is really simple in style and but has a few extra bits of dazzle that are mandatory for Christmas in my world! I used the Pretty Pines Thinlit dies to create the foliage and Christmas Pines stamps for the wording and background.

Queen Pip Tip:

Mixed metallics are so on trend. Are you using them this year? Mixing Gold, Silver and Copper here really makes them pop.  Use soft neutral colours to balance the metallics. Then you add a splash of colour with Real Red ribbon & ink! The “wreath” beneath comes from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit dies!  I use burlap to give some added texture under the die cut pieces. The stamping on the tag just lifts the wreath and makes the sentiment pop. Here is the Gift Bag and Card Christmas Pines combo!
