Hello and welcome! Today I'm here to celebrate Paper Crafts Magazine's Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 5, a fabulous holiday issue filled full of ideas & inspiration for everything from holiday cards and gift wrap to decor and gifts.

This issue is essential for any holiday crafter... my kids have even thumbed through it and marked cards that they want to make for friends and family this Christmas.  The girls are always "helping" me when I break out my crafting supplies and while working on this issue we had a blast listening to holiday music, burning our pine scented candles... even breaking out the hot chocolate, marshmallows and candy canes. We love to play... and there is nothing better than playing pretend Christmastime! The girls and I are now ready to do it all over again in mass to get our family holiday cards (and more) ready... are you?

On today's blog hop 11 designers and I will share projects made with patterns from three projects in Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 5. Here is my take on Becky Olsen's Holiday Plaid Gift Bag on page 104... this darling little gift bag is super easy recreate!
Visit Paper Crafts Connection to see all of the original inspiration projects plus you can get the patterns HERE.

If you want a chance to win big... REALLY BIG (seriously, check out the prize over at Paper Crafts Connection if you haven't had a chance to yet... one lucky person will win 12 holiday collections... wow!) simply hop to all of the 12 designer's blogs plus Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World and leave a comment on each... that's 14 chances to win some serious loot...

PLUS I have one copy of Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 5 to give away to one commenter on my blog...  just leave a comment telling me what color combo you would use for your holiday cards (even if you are not making them;)... do you love the traditional red & green or something else? All comments must be posted by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, September 19. The grand prize winner will be announced on Paper Crafts Connection on Tuesday, September 21 and the winner of a free issue of Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 5 will be announced here... good luck!

Your bag is beautiful!!! I love the traditional colors of your bag in the deep shades. I'm also intrigued by the trendy colors of something like aqua and pink!

Amy said...

Beautiful! My favorite Christmas color combos are dark purple, maroon and gold.

Karen said...

lovely elegance....

Angela said...

Your bag is so elegant! I tend towards the funky myself -- I do love red and green, but I also love red and aqua, pink and lime, and anything metallic!

tape said...

Oh so beautiful! I love the traditional red and green, have to have at least one of those in my holiday cards!

craftymom205 said...

I would use the jewel tones with the deep rich colors. Love your bag.

Ohhh Snap said...

Last year it was pink and white or red and white and lots of stickles. This year it looks like it will be pink, moss green and white with some red plaid thrown in and lots of stickles.

mommyabbytommy said...

Wonderful bag!! I am traditional in my colors. However, I usually only use red, no green.

Karen said...

Mine are blue and white this year; usually they're the more traditional red and green.

Diane said...

Gorgeous and elegant..great for any holiday!! I love most combo's, but find myself using red and white...love the elegance that white brings!!

Samantha said...

Wow! LOVE the bag. I like crisp, clean colors usually, lots of white and red and silver with little hits of a clear green. But, this bag has me re-thinking that.

Connie said...

I love this bag- elegant - elegant - colors are just beautiful. My favorite colors for Christmas cards.... hard - but I love red and kraft together!

Yelowflower said...

I love the red, black and white combo...so striking.

Anonymous said...

Your bag is so elegant and beautiful! If I were making cards today I'd choose something in the holly berry reds and bright white.
Sue

Alyssa B said...

I like jewel tones with the deep rich colors :)

Amber said...

I love traditional green and red, but also soft blue, white and red!

Kelly said...

Gotta love the old Christmas color standards, but my new fav is PTI Ocean Tides and Spring Moss!

andie said...

dont know yet what my plans are for christmas cards this year, but i really love the light blue, gold and linen color combo. think i might have to try that out!

really love the jingle bells you added to your bow. i think those are the first actual bells i've seen on any of the projects! way to go! xoxo andie...

Sue Ann said...

I love a ton of different combo's. I love golds and then with that I like sage and wine. I love real red and hunter. I love a light aqua red and green...... love it all.

And I love this project. the roses around the top. this is so special!!!

RoseMillsOhio said...

The bag you've featured is beautiful! I love to use liturgical colors---purple for Advent and white/gold for Christmas.

kathy/North Carolina said...

So lovely! The bow is smashing! I love to work with creams and golds....always comes out looking good, and then accent with punches of burgundy and deep green.

Ellie A. said...

This year I am thinking of using Kraft,Hot Pink together w/a splash of Old Olive. Just to spice it up a bit. Love the elements of your project just beautiful.

Jenny McGee said...

I love gold, so I love your project. On my Christmas tree each year I put gold tinsel. That stuff is hard to find, but I save it the best I can each year. Thanks for a chance to win.

Jenny McGee said...

I love gold. I use gold tinsel on my Christmas tree every year. It is hard to find. I re use it. Thanks for a chance to win.

Kristin said...

Your bag is lovely. I am using white, gree, yellow and blue for my x-mas cards.

Barbara said...

I do need to use traditional red and green. This year I have been using some really bright colors for Christmas tree blubs to go on cards.

Bonnie said...

Love the simple elegance of that bag. Love the colors. When I make cards the colors depend on the feel of the card. If I'm going for a more fun, whimsical card I go with the traditional red, green, white. If I'm trying for a more elegant feel I tend to lean towards the deeper red/burgundy and cream with some gold thrown in.

smahrty said...

so pretty and elegant! love the lines of little jewels.

Carla (cmsuto) said...

Your gift bag is gorgeous! I love the vintage look! Such elegant details! My favorite color combo for Christmas cards is pretty traditional - rich red/burgundy, green, gold and ivory.

Scrappywonder said...

really like the classic feel of your bag! I recently just finshed a dozen cards with classic colors of very vanilla, blushing bride, cherry cobbler, always artichoke & river rock, which gave me a vintage feel... however, if I'm looking for a non-traditional festive touch then I always reach for teal, purple/magenta & pink, sometimes adding mint to the mix... tfs R ;)

The bag is stunning! I love it. I think this year I am going to work with the colors from Cosmo Crickets Mitten Weather for my holiday cards.

artfulwhimsies said...

I love aqua and creme!

Andi (RrlScrapGal) said...

Such a gorgeous project! So elegant.

So.. card colors? I am loving aqua blue, white and touch of pinks...

liliput said...

Very classy and elegant bag! i usually use red, silver or gold =)

Christina said...

Oh so elegant! I love the cream and scarlet you used, but for my holiday cards I really like red, cream, and aqua. The blue adds a non-traditional but wintry color to the mix!

Jennie said...

This is beautiful Windy! I love cranberry, kraft and a pop of deep green...

Monika/Buzsy said...

Such an elegant bag. Love the ribbon and rhinestones! Great tag! :o)

Agata said...

So elegant! Must give this box a try!

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I'm a traditional gal! I love kraft, red, green, and maybe a touch of black when I make my holiday projects! I love your bag! So stunning and elegant! WOW!

Kelly Boettcher said...

I have not figured out my Christmas cards for this year.. but I know that I want to use PTIs Vintage Cream and Kraft. I just have not figured out the 3rd color yet!

Pam said...

Love the colors in your project! I tend to choose the traditional reds & greens but more like cranberry & evergreen.

judybob3 said...

Haven't decided yet what colors to use for my cards.........went with red and white last year but I'm leaning towards blue and silver this year I think. :)

Legojenta said...

I like the reds with dark greens, alternatively together with kraft or crisp white =)

Migdalia Roman said...

Elegant!!!!!!!

Ally said...

Beautiful! Love the flower ribbon & little bells! I love blue & silver for our holiday cards.

Cheryl said...

I love your bag. Beautiful! I was just discussing the color scheme question with my husband last night. I love red and fresh green or red and light blue, but I'm also drawn to navy, white, and silver with snowflakes, snow people, and starry skies. I've been looking, looking, looking to see what jumps out at me.

Belinda said...

Windy, this is fab!!! Love the big flowery ribbon and the classic Windy bow. ;-) I'm definitely a pink, green, light blue person when it comes to my Xmas cards -- keep it fun and whimsical! :)

scarthur said...

I am traditional red and green usually, but might just get inspired by all of the fun colors in the Crate Paper line!!

Dru said...

Wow this is gorgeous and so elegant!! Most of my cards will probably be red and green - I'm pretty traditional - but I also like to use the pink, blue, white/cream combo sometimes as well.

saday said...

This year I'm going a bit more vintage traditional in my color choices. But who knows, I may come acros some irresistable Christmas paper in some non-traditional colors. We'll see...

Joy Briggs said...

Beautiful! Love your flowers!
My favorite holiday color scheme kinda depends on the style I'm going for. I love the traditional red, green and gold (which you pulled off perfectly!) but I'm from up north so blue, red/pink and silver (something snowy and cool) is what I usually end up with :)

Vera W. Yates (Ling) said...

So elegant & classy!

catnap said...

Love your bag, so elegant and classy. Love the color combo, too, of the deep red and gold. You've inspired me to try that on my own cards (first time trying home made). Great question!

Pamm said...

I love intense deep colors for Christmas!

{VICKI} said...

I would probably stick with red and green!

Jan Garber said...

Very elegant gift box! Beautiful! My cards will be teal blue, white, and silver this year! and gotta add some sparkle!

kathy e said...

I love your bag--sooooo elegant. Last year I used red and khaki, this year I'm using rose and olive. So many great and unusual color combinations out there!

Jamie said...

I love Kraft paired with just about any color!! I think for christmas this year it will be kraft and shades of red.

DonnaSue said...

I love burgundy and your bag is gorgeous! I guess that would be my color scheme for Christmas.

Michele said...

So elegant!

MelissaS said...

Love your bag! I usually go tradional but am open to new things.

Fifi said...

really classy I love the rose ribbon particularly, I'd never have thought of using it for christmas

Vicki Wizniuk said...

Well, I've already started my cards for this year and they are using the traditional colours. But I just created the cutest card the other day that is done in shades of blue with a splash of red which has me thinking I might need to make some of each. ;)

Your bag is so elegant and stunning! Beautiful work!

tampatha said...

great bag and love the colors! i've just started making some christmas cards in gold and navy and they look stunning!
-tammy l

sharon g said...

I've already made my cards. I used mostly green and red, but not your typical Christmas green and red. I used burgundy and a greyish green.

Marisa said...

Fabulously elegant bag!! Love the flowers across the top and the trim on top and bottom.

Favorite holiday colours, hard to choose. Love red and gold and white, a dark green and deep red, love your colour combo here too.

Kathleen said...

your box is so elegant. Love it!

I am a traditionalist and love the classis red and green. Although I have been know to occasionally use hot pink and lime green instead.

lenainwonderland said...

This is gorgeous!!
My fave holiday colors are so hard to pick. I either like very traditional - dark green, gold, and maroon...OR bright and happy blues, whites, silver, reds.

Carol said...

Beautiful bag! I use the tradional colors most, but will also use non traditional on occasion.

Romaine said...

I am a tradish kinda girl, so most likely red and green. I adore red (to me, it's like a neutral!), so at any rate, red would def. be a part of it! I love the flowers on this! Hmmm, they are red, aren't they...

Bobbi-Lynn said...

Just gorgeous. Such beautiful, classy colours

Debbie said...

Love the bells and the rich colors!

tlgirl353 said...

This is wonderful- love the colors and the details!

Kalyber said...

I don't have a favorite color scheme for the holidays I mix it up. Some people will get the traditional green and red others will get burgundy and gold others will get sage and pale blue and hot pink. The colors I choose depend on the recipient.

Laura - The Stampin' Soldier said...

I don't know what I'm going to use for my holiday cards yet, but our home is always decorated in lovely jewel tones. Warm and sparkly of course!

Rachel Schumacher said...

Beautiful bag! I love red, so maybe red and white or the traditional red and green.

cards4ever said...

I use red, green, and golds for one color scheme and can you believe it black and white for another.

Glenda said...

I love using burgundy, cream and a rich green. But then blue and brown look good too. And then there is light blue, red and white... the possibilities are endless!

debm said...

Gorgeous bag!!!! I tend to use very traditional colours with lots of gold or silver incorporated in the design! Oh and glitter too!!!

Glenda said...

By the way - your project is stunning! Love the colours.

CindyP said...

love the flowers and the bells for berries! Very festive!

Pat said...

This year I am going with white, red and gold combo. Absolutely beautiful gift box!

marianne-g said...

Your gift box is so elegant! It's a gift in it self.

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

This is gorgeous! My hubby is pretty traditional so we do red and green.

Julia said...

I love starting with a basic craft paper brown card set and build from there. Sometimes it is the traditional green and red, other times I 'glam' it up and go with golds or bronzes.

Renee said...

Beautiful! So elegant.
Already working on cards, and I've got traditional and nontraditional all going on, but my favorite is probably brown, cream and red. I like a rustic feel, simple, and those colors can be elegant, fun or simple.

lisa mosher said...

very elegant bag, my fav color combo for christmas is ripe avacado, scarlet jewel and vintage cream (PTI colors) thanks for a chance to win

stephanie_j_gaston said...

I'm so traditional - it's usually red and green for me with some kraft tones thrown in for vintage-y appeal.

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

Just lovely. Love those ribbons and flowers. Thanks for sharing.

Jaclyn Miller said...

You mean I have to choose just one color combo? Oh man, well it depends on what stamps I use, but I tend to be traditional with deep greens and reds for most cards and blues for snowy items.

Sue G. said...

Now that is CHIC!!! I can really see a young girl appreciating this! My favorite Christmas go-to colors are red and brown.

naturecoastcrafter said...

Happy Stamper Bev said...

Kraft with white ink is my main stay color combination...

TracyJ said...

I'm boring--I usually stick with traditional colors of red and green--sometimes I'll go funky pink and funky green!

Manhattan Mandie said...

Fleursbydesign said...

Beautiful bag, I love the ribbon and the jingle bells!

syrant said...

What a beautiful bag. I like tradional red and green with a twist like the darker colors you used and kinda like pink with green.

Christi Snow said...

This box is so beautiful! For my holiday cards, I tend to use a deep, dark red with a mix of other colors (depending on the year.) But the red is a staple for my Christmas card designs! smiles....

MorethanWordsCardDesign said...

Last year all my cards had black in them. Actually the base of the card was black and then had black and white music notes and then one patterned Christmas paper in an actual color - I made about 6 in each of the different patterned papers - somewhere around 30-40 cards.

This year the theme for my cards will be either snowman or snowflakes. I haven't decided yet. But I'm definitely thinking along the lines of light blue, and a light purple, maybe even a light pink. A bit untraditional for Christmas cards but maybe that's just me.

Helen F. said...

Windy, your gift bag is so beautiful and elegant! Love the colors you chose too. I tend to like non-traditional colors like dark blue and silver or pastels for my Christmas cards.

Jarie said...

Love your project. TFS. I like traditional colors for Christmas. Last year I used red,black and white for my cards and I'm leaning toward that color combination again today.

Janet

Lin said...

Beautiful design! I love cream and that lovely red together! My cards are all over the place colorwise (I don't do just one card each year, it's more like multiples of 10 different designs), but I liked last years' colors of blue and cranberry, with a touch of cream - they look so rich! Thanks for the chance to win and for your inspiration!

Frozenstamper said...

Love your elegant take on this project. Beautiful!
I seem to be pretty traditional in my Christmas color choices. Red, Green, Kraft, gingham - But, sometimes I've been known to choose wintery blue's and more of an icy look!

Erica Hettwer said...

Last years cards were aqua and white and red and I LOVED them. I'll probably do something along those lines again. Or, take my color palatte from some cool retro glass Christmas balls, aqua, pink, lime. Just fun, happy colors!

Kim said...

Your bag is so elegant! I usually do 4-5 designs every year (I get bored doing 60+ of the same! LOL) I always have a blue/silver combo and a red/white combo, the rest can change. Last few years I had olive-y green and mustard combo--was kinda playing on the pear tree idea...still have 10 more years to go!

KellyG said...

I am pretty traditional so red, green, white, gold. Elegant project!

Ngan R. said...

I generally use red, white, and green. But this year, after seeing these beautiful projects, I'm moving towards more blues, golds, and silvers. Who knows what comes out--I'll just keep experimenting Thanks for sharing!

ntsisterz said...

Tre elegante! I like to use traditional colors, but lately I have been trying a few orange and purple shades. You woouldn't believe how well they work for Christmas colors!

Absolutely love this. So elegant. Love the rhinestones and flowers. Terrific job.

onecraftymama said...

My favourites tend to be the less-common, like light pink & green, or bright teal & red...purple was a go-to for me last year, and usually I stay away from purple. I guess it just seemed Christmasy :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Anonymous said...

lovely! christine traversa

Meghann said...

Such an elegant bag! Last year I used red & lime green for my Christmas cards, but I'm feeling that I need to switch it up a bit this year. Haven't decided yet, though! P.S. I'm a Cincy/N.Ky girl! Born in Cincy, raised south of Alexandria, Ky.

Jeni said...

What a beautiful gift box! I love the tulle flowers & the bells.

This year I'm using a darker blue, yellow & avacado green color combination for my Christmas cards. It's something different & not a combination I've used before.

Jana said...

I lean toward trendy...Pink, lime green, aqua, but this year I'm feeling the draw of more traditional reds and greens.

Madcap Frenzy (Morgaine to others) said...

I love all color combos really, but the more wintery blue and silver I just love!
What a cute bag, so elegant!

Chuckle, thank you for acknowledging that we're not all going to actually make our holiday cards, but I think I'd used kraft if I were going to take the plunge... and red- love your flowers.

NatQuebec said...

so elegant bag ! I usually use the traditional green, shite and red colors ;-)

Geri said...

I love your question! Every year I pick a color scheme and get totally carried away with it. I am really going out on a limb this year and have chosen fuschia pink, lime green and purple. I have already started creating and the color combo looks great!

mahuntington said...

Your bag is stunning. I've never seen anything like it. My favorite holiday colors are Maroon, Creme and Gold.
Mary Ann

Lake Side Living said...

Wow!!! Just Stunning! I love the paper, colors...every thing about what youv'e done here. I'll prolly use traditional, red & greens but I'm thinking of making some decorations using brights too. Too much eye candy!!! Can't make up my mind!!! ;)

Scrapycandy said...

I would love to receive something so beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration!

Stephanie said...

Your bag is simply gorgeous!!
For my holiday cards I like to use red & aqua blue (we do traditional colors in the house, so the cards are my chance to break free :) )

rhonda said...

What a simply stunning bag! I am going with cream and red I think! I hope to win since the 19th is my birthday!

Tammy said...

mtscrapgal said...

What a lovely, elegant gift bag. I like the ole green & red but in deeper shades like forest green and deep rich red. Thanks for the chance to win.

Pamela said...

I generally go for traditional red, white, and green but like to add Gold to it too. Many times I trade out the red and green for more of a burgundy and evergreen.

Rhiannon said...

what a gorgeous gift bag! love those tulle rosettes! as for my Christmas Card Color Scheme...I am all over the board this year. some are more traditional, while others are picking up pinks and blues...just having fun playing with all the fun stuff that is out there :)

This year I think my cards will go with a more vintage vibe with lots of kraft and white.

Amanda M said...

This bag is so elegant. It is such a great way to present a gift...wow! I think my favorite color combination would have to be pink and aqua (like on the Jolly by Golly Play Date paper) This is the first year I have ever went "outside of the box" and it's liberating!

Kristy said...

The fabric roses are really cute. I love what you have done to this bag.

Heather B. said...

So elegant! Looks perfect for a bottle of wine!!

Beth M said...

Paige Dolecki said...

Your project is just drop-dead gorgeous! Very, very classy!

Maria said...

I love the detail on this. So elegant. My favorite color combo would be red, white, and some embossed metallic of silver or gold.
