Pootlers Autumn Winter Catalogue Blog Hop

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

Thank you for joining me today for the Pootlers blog hop. As a member of Pootles team I get to join in the 3 blog hops we do each year. This one is showcasing the new Autumn Winter catalogue. I do hope you will hop around and get inspired by all the projects you see.  My project uses the wonderful Flourish Filigree stamp set. This was the first set that jumped out at me.

I have decided to make a gift box for this hop to show off the beautiful filigree pattern in this stamp set. When I saw it I just knew it would look fabulous on the top of a gift box.
