Wrapping Versailles for The Holidays

Two things caught my wrapping fancy this year. My photo montage of Versailles and the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year.......Emerald Green. The Versailles photo montage is still being tweaked as a gift wrap for production in 2013. I love the black & white version which will be printed on a gorgeous vellum. A muted colour in-progress version is seen below. I am using my work samples for this year's holiday wrapping, a fun way to see what works and what doesn't so excuse the smaller size but it does tell me to keep moving forward with this design. No matter how I plan it, it seems I always end up gift wrapping at the last minute. A revolving and early flu set our household back in scheduling but we are busy little elves tonight with wrapping, chopping, setting tables, and doing last minute things.

    Happy New Year to you and yours.

  18. Wow, what glamorous wrapping! I love the idea of spending the time to create beautiful packages, but as always I run out of time. :(

    Love, Jamie Herzlinger

  19. Sande,
    You are onto something fabulous here!
    I love the idea of putting a Versailles collage on vellum (paper would be great too).
    I can just imagine how many people would go crazy for this paper, Sande.

    Best of luck with your new project, and I wish you and your family a blessed 2013.


  20. Sande,
    this is brilliant! I'm swooning over the Versailles collage, crystals, pearls, and ribbons.
    I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year.
    xoxo, B

  21. Gorgeous inspiration as always!
    Happy 2013!

  22. This vibrant emerald against the beautiful black and white Versailles design is stunning. I am biased as each time I visit the Versailles gardens they really take my breath away!

  23. I'm trying to get around to visit some bloggers I haven't "seen" for a while. I love the colors of your wrapping choices. My family says I'm over the top with my wrapping...I should print out a picture of yours and show them what stunning really looks like! Hope you are well. S.

  24. I don't think I've ever seen such lovely wrapped presents. Gorgeous!

  25. Thank you so very much for your kind words, it is incredibly difficult to loose a loved one to depression. I am sorry for your loss as well, I cannot imagine the pain of loosing a sister.

    I hope that you are well and have not been bombarded with snow.

    Take care, Elizabeth
