Trimming the Town Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Trimming the Town Blog Hop!

If you have arrived from Sara's blog, thank you for visiting Handmade by Kim! Wasn't Sara's project just lovely? 

I'm Kim and I live in Somerset in the UK. You'll find lots of inspiration here today from Stampin' Up! demonstrators and papercrafters from The Netherlands, Australia, Canada, USA and the UK. 

If you've already been hopping along, haven't all the projects been lovely? The Trimming the Town suite of products from Stampin' Up! is great to work with for all papercrafters - whether you're new to card making or not!

You can either buy a) the whole Suite of products, b) the Coming Home stamp set and Home Together dies as a bundle or c) just the patterned paper. 


I've predominately used the Trimming the Town DSP for my project today. I've not done any stamping as everything you see has been taken from the patterned paper. 

I have added Pool Party Sheer ribbon. I've lightly coloured it with my Misty Moonlight blends so the colour matches the cardstock better.

I decided to feature a section from the top of the patterned paper with the snowy town scene and I've made a few alterations - did you notice?


I cut away the daylight sky behind the mountains and replaced it with a snowflake sky at night. This was so easy to do and it works well with my Misty Moonlight cardbase.

I have used the Home Together dies to easily cut out the house and trees from the patterned sheet below on the left - but note this can also be easily achieved by fussy cutting using your scissors. This is exactly what I did for my sentiment which I took from the patterned sheet below on the right.


I hope you've enjoyed my project today! If you have the time I'd love you to leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by.

Next up is Stephanie aka The Crafty Medic and she has a lovely project to show you. Simply click on her name in the list below to visit her blog and then reapeat, working your way down the list and back to the top, until you end up back here!

Come back on Saturday for a set of clean and simple fall cards I've created for a challenge over at The Spot!
