Christmas Stampin' Gift Set Challenge

Hello everyone.. and welcome to a gorgeous Friday.

This week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long it's time for a gift set challenge. We set aside the first Friday of each month as the day we deviate from our regular Christmas card challenge. It's a nice change of pace and we are getting Christmas projects completed now instead of when the holiday rush hits.

Our very talented hostess, Maria, puts together some of the best tutorials for projects and today is no exception. Here's my take on Maria's challenge for this week.

and a peek at the inside of the gift purse

I decorated the inside of the gift purse a bit differently than Maria did in her tutorial. I created a pouch using cardstock with an opening at the top so a photograph could be slipped inside. Maria did her sample using CD envelopes, so take a look.

You can join us in this week's challenge using this tutorial from Maria.  Pocket Purse Photo Album. Hope to see you there!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.. and thanks for stopping by.
