YNS 2016 in Review Blog Hop

Hello Stamping Friends!

Welcome to YNS's December Year in Review Hop!!!

What an amazing year it has been at YNS!

So many awesome new stamp sets!
Dies!

And the introduction of PAPER and INK!!!

I have been so thankful to be able to work with a bunch of the different products!!  


--------------------

For today's project, we were to use some of our favorite stamps and/or dies released this year!

For the record, this was extremely hard for me!

WHY?!

Well I LOVE everything YNS!  
I had no clue what to use as I have loved everything released this year, I have way too many favorites!!

I actually started a few projects as I wasn't sure what I really wanted to make!


Then looking again through all my supplies I ended up deciding to create this cute little package:
A good friend of mine is having a Birthday right after Christmas and she wanted cute necklaces for work, so I decided to created this cute little package to put the necklace I got her in!  The Pillow Box Die was not new this year, but I absolutely LOVE using it!!  It is so great to use for Gift Cards as well!!

I used the Happy Everything stamp set, which was released this year!  I love this stamp set!  I've used it a lot!  I really like the large fancy font used for the "Happy"!!  Which I stamped in Black Olive Premium Die Ink Pad!!  So excited YNS released their own line of lovely ink colors this year!!

There are 11 other tiny sentiments in the Happy Everything stamp set as well, in this case I used the "birthday"!  So many uses in this one stamp set makes it a perfect set to own!!

I also used an older stamp set, Spring Birds, to add the sweet flowers to two of the corners.

I also used the new Flower Cube Die Set to die cut the three cute flowers to add to my package!  And as I say a lot, as I am obsessed with them, I finished off my package by adding some Give Thanks to Sparkle Gumdrops to the centers of my flowers!!  A nice touch!!


Please reference our linky at the bottom of this post for the entire hop list.

--------------------

Happy Hopping!!
Please remember to leave some love along the way!

You have a chance at winning a $25 Gift Certificate!!!

Have a lovely day!
