Week #11 Challenge!

Welcome to Week 11 at The Paper Variety! Just a quick
shout out once more to Lynn for winning last week's sketch
challenge- Congrats Lynn! I also want to wish everyone a
Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow and safe travels this
weekend. My son and I will join my sister's family for dinner
and then relax at home with yummy leftovers this weekend :)

Now, onto the challenge...



Our challenge is all about the holidays, but let's rewind
back to summer for a moment as this week's prize
sponsored by Scrappy Jo's is all about fun warm days!


This collection of colorful scrappy supplies features
American Crafts "Heat Wave" and "City Park"! Is anyone
still trying to catch up on all those fun summer photos?
I am! :)
Be sure to join us this Friday when we share
more about Scrappy Jo's!


Check out these beautiful holiday gift wraps
from our awesome Design Team!

April did a fantastic job with this altered tin! I especially
love the gorgeous snowflake paper and pearls!

Sarah went for the country motif with her gift bag and jar
using red, green and kraft - beautiful color combination
for the holidays! Love this patterned paper!

Tere created a gorgeous non-traditional holiday gift bag,
yet still capturing the season with her snowy birdcage
and "be merry" sentiment. Love those flowers!

Yara's gift bag, however, is all about a traditional Christmas!
Love the holly bunches and vintage Santa tag!

Suzanne joined our challenge this week with this super
cute gift bag. I love that punched border and how she used
the satin ribbon! Nice silhouette, too!

I created a gift bag using the BG Jovial collection and
added gems in various places to give some sparkle. I also
made a couple gift boxes for this challenge that you
can see on my blog.

Now it's your turn! Create a holiday gift bag/box or gift
wrapping and add it to the InLinkz below before Tuesday
at noon. A winner will be randomly chosen Tuesday evening
and will receive that super fun American Crafts collection
from Scrappy Jo's!! Try to add your project before
Sunday if you'd like a chance to be chosen
for a Submission Spotlight!

We're looking forward to seeing all your beautiful projects!
