West Coast Creators November Blog Hop | Trimming The Town Showcase

Welcome to our West Coast Creators team blog hop!  We had our first snowfall in Vancouver this week, if you can believe how quickly winter is approaching!  With that, it’s time to look forward to winter holidays and preparing for its festivities!

There is no set more suited to holiday fun, than Stampin’ Up’s Trimming the Town suite. (#155105).  With the cheery colours of Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Pool Party, Misty Moonlight and Early Espresso, and the cute DSP, it was a set that I knew I had to have!

In this post, I will be showcasing a few fun projects that I made, using this suite.

Coming Home Special Delivery Car Card

This card shows off the cute DSP with houses, on a Poppy Parade cardstock mat.  The car and trees were stamped and die cut using the Coming Home Bundle (#155144) and coloured with Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake and Old Olive Blends.  These were all arranged on a Whisper White circle and Poppy Parade scallop circle die.  The sentiment was cut from another piece of DSP, with a bunch of wonderful holiday sayings in multiple languages.  A junk knot was tied using White Crinkle ribbon (#151326), Real Red Braided Trim (#153546), Gold Metallic Ribbon (#153553) and a gold Jingle Bell (#149598)

Coming Home Happy Holidays Card

Card #2 is a fancy fold card, which opens up down the middle as shown in the photo above.  It also showcases the DSP with miniature people having fun, on an Old Olive card base.  The Misty Moonlight house, is die cut straight from the DSP using the Home Together dies (#153515) found in the suite.  The sentiment is from the DSP, just like the first card.  All of this is placed on a Whisper White mat and Old Olive cut  from the Stitched So Sweetly dies (#151690), another versatile set!  Finally, a strip of Metallic Mesh ribbon (#153550) is tied and around to add some bling!

Coming Home Peace Love Hope Box Close Up

This last project is a cute box, that can be used to hold mini cards, tags or treats.  The box is made from Thick Whisper White cardstock, using a basic box template.  It is then decorated with the  Trimming the Town DSP, stamp and dies from the suite.  As a finishing touch, a few All the Trimmings embellishments (#153540) were used.

  1. All your projects are great! You are making me want to get this suite as well. Did you design the box? Your whole set would make a lovely gift!

    1. Thanks Shanda – this suite is great! I used the box template that I shared in our WCC team meeting last year. Let me know if you don’t have it and I can send it to you!
