Join the Stamp to Share Design Team as we feature Gift Packaging in this months blog hop.  You may be joining me after visiting my good friend, Rochelle Blok in Australia, or you may be starting the hop here.  Just make sure to click on the "Next" button to continue around the rest of this amazing team.

Sometimes you just want to decorate up something little and you really don't have to look very much further than your Designer Series Paper!  Come on, how many of you are sitting on a mountain of DSP cause it is just too pretty to use?  Wrap that gift!!

I am featuring a sneak peek of a sweet suite (see what I did there?) which will be available January 3rd, when the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue goes live!  The Picture Perfect Party Suite of products is bright and vibrant, just perfect for gift giving.

After wrapping my gift of chocolate in Picture Perfect Party DSP, I completed this simple gift with a Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon.  No gift is complete without a card and I just love the new Narrow Notecards and Envelopes.  Such a perfect little size!

I had fun picking out the colours in this suite to use on my card and envelope and the stamp set had so many great sentiments to choose from.  Placing the sequins was made easy as these ones are adhesive backed!

I hope you will now look at your DSP stash in a new light and use some of it at least, to dress up your own sweet gifts!
