YNS October Release and Blog HOP HOP HOP!!!

The holidays are right around the corner, and today there are lots of new products in the YNS store to help you get you ready for Christmas!  I went on a Christmas stamping frenzy when I received the new products and make coordinating cards, bags and tags!

The hop begins on Jen’s Blog, and if you’ve been hopping along, then you should have arrived from our guest Joni’s blog. Our sweet boss lady’s birthday is coming up on October 25th (Happy Birthday, Karen!!!) and she is celebrating by giving away a prize at every blog! Make sure you leave comments on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win one of my favorite sets, Believe in the Magic, plus some of the YUMMY new YNS Gumdrops!

I took inspiration for today's projects from gift wrap that my children were selling from school.  I created 2 sets of Christmas cards, gift tags and decorated a couple gift bags too; all which coordinate with the gift wrap.  This will be part of a gift for my mom, plus I supported my children's school - win, win! 

First up, a CAS card that is perfect for making multiples of and mailing.  This one features the snowflakes and sentiment from "Snowflakes".  I stamped the snowflakes and then heat embossed the sentiment.

The assembly line continued with my second card set.  It went by even faster because I have a helper who loves using my Cuttlebug!
This card features the snowflake and sentiment from "Snowflakes", the snowflake was die cut out using the "Winter Wishes Snowflake Die Set".  In the center of each snowflake is one of the new YNS Gumdrops.

Next up the gift tags!  I had so much fun playing with the new "Holiday Sentiments" set.  It has a little bit of everything and works well for classic or whimsical.

The penguins are paired up with dies from the "Holiday Whatnot Die Set" and each tag is finished off with glossy accents.
Karen is also offering some awesome Choose Your Discount Specials in the YNS Store so make sure you take advantage of these amazing deals!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Kerri’s fantabulous blog, but don’t forget to leave a comment before you go! Happy hopping and shopping!
