DCWV/Hampton Art Hop!


Hello and welcome to day one of the two-day DCWV/Hampton Art Holiday Hop!
 
 

DCWV and Hampton Art are two companies that go above and beyond to provide a wide selection of products from classic, to vintage, to trendy and modern. So, when we decided to team up, it was only natural that we would want to show you some variety.

Day #1 of our hop is all about vintage! Whether you are talking lace and pearls and soft weathered colors or distressed, grungy, and aged, if you love all things vintage we have some beautiful projects to show you today!

Swan Lake Christmas Gift Box

 
The stamps are from Hampton Art, Graphic 45 collection,
papers from DCWV, "The Heirloom Christmas" stack,
with the added duck feathers to symbolize the swan.
 
 
The container is an altered wooden cigar box.
 

 
Not only does she sparkle, but she wobbles, too!
Yep, when the box opens, she gently wiggles.
 
 
 
This will make any gift extra special!
 
 

Next, hop on over to Dana's blog and see what surprises she has in store for you!
 But, first, don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs for your chance to win a terrific prize!

Whoo-hoo!
