Magnolia Christmas and Valentine's Blog Hop Projects

Good morning everyone. It is time for the Magnolia-licious September Blog Hop. If you are coming from the amazing RUBY'S BLOG , you are in the right track. If not, please go back to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to start this blog hop. This month's blog hop is 2 for 1 holiday - Take a holiday stamp create something with it and then re-invent it in some way for another occasion or event as well!.
I created a card and an altered house shape box using from Tilda with Snow Heart of the 2011 Sweet X'mas Dreams Collection from Magnolia-licious.

This is a reminder to let you know that after this hop, the next stop is over at my awesome buddy ANGELA'S BLOG. Be sure to see how wonderful Angela's creation is for more inspiration!!

Here are the finished projects, please scroll down for the additional pictures on these projects.

Here is the 1ST project:
It is a 'Valentine's' card. I also use a Magnolia Sentiment stamp for this card. I bought the lace trim wrapped around the oval frame from Hong Kong.

Closer view of these stamps.

Here is the 2ND project:

I bought this 'house shape box' from Michael's decorated it with MME pattern paper. The window is cute from the PS small Madison Window. Because the box is a bit too small for the window, so I trimmed the side to fit better inside this house.

Now I have an extra box to store my lace trim :o)

Back view of this box. I stamped the Magnolia Christmas sentiment on a piece of vellum, then added the MB Musical Interlude and MB Treble Clef dies to fill up the empty back space.

That's all I have to share with you today. Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you get a chance to join us for the hop and the challenge :o)

Cabio, stunningly gorgeous card and house. Your use of colours is just amazing. Beautifully designed card and the lace trim around the oval shape is breathtaking. Fabulous colouring of both Tildas. The house reminds me a the gingerbread houses I used to make--haven't done one in decades now...LOL.
