TSG78 - Getting Gifty

Well, now that Halloween is over with the stores are starting to fill up with Christmas Decorations so I thought that I would start some holiday stuff too. I have been in the mood to start on some Christmas things so why not add to the pile and come up with some holiday packaging? :D

This week our featured Trendsetter is Natalie and she has a great challenge for us! She has challenged us to get gifty by creating any type of gift themed card or project. I revamped an old Victorian Epicure Tea Tin to create this holiday gift box and used the HSH Holiday Additions set for both the sentiment and stocking. The project was quite simple and didn't take very long - it helps to have some lovely sparkly pattern papers on hand ;) I water coloured the image with tombow markers and as a finishing touch added some stickles to the stocking and some rhinestones to the center of each snowflake.

I know you want to participate in this challenge too. So here is what you have to know ;) To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a gift of some kind, then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (11-08-10). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG79 so we can check out your beautiful work!
