Visions of Sugarplums ~ Day 1


Welcome to the first day of VOSP 2017! There is so much inspiration to be found for the next 3 days. If you came upon my blog from Greta's, you are in the right spot. If not, but sure to start at Lori's and follow along. 

I have been loving some craft fair tutorials on youtube and rather than just watch them, I decided to make some fun little gifts from the tutorial. This one comes from scrapdaworld. Tmika is so much fun to watch and she gets so excited about her projects. You can't help but smile.  

For today's projects I went with a less traditional color scheme: pinks, rose red, mints, and light blue.

I'm always needing a little sweet gift to give now and then. You never know when you might make a
BIG difference in someone's life by brightening their day with a little love. This designer paper is even appropriately named "Mint Berry". I bought it at Hobby Lobby when it was 1/2 priced.

I also love making these little notepads. They make great gifts and who doesn't need paper to make lists, esp this time of year?




Karen's blog is next on the list, but first, be sure to read the info below on the prize challenge.

Here is a list of everyone who is playing along with Lori's challenge this year.


Along with all the inspiration you will find along the way, there is also a challenge out with a chance to win a great prize. You have until Saturday the 16th to enter, so there is plenty of time for you to create. Be sure to go to Lori's blog to enter. You can create anything you want as long as it is a Christmas/Winter themed project. The prize for the challenge is a $20.00 gift certificate to Mama Elephant.   The challenge will start Dec 2nd and run through Dec. 16th.


How do you win?  

1.  Start by leaving a comment on Lori's blog that you would like to win. 

2.  Visit all the other blog's and leave comments.  

3. Lori will pick up your name from her blog, check all the other blogs and put your name in the "hat"  as many times as you leave comments.  Example:  Leave 14 comments = your name 14 times in the "hat".

Prize winners will be announced on Sunday, December 10th
