It’s Beginning to Look A lot like Christmas

It’s December 12th and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Christmas cards are made, we’ve had our annual team Christmas party (aka our chocolate fondue night!),  and some presents are wrapped and under the tree. I even decorated a little bulletin board in my office.
Bulletin Board Here are the little gifts I gave out at our team party. I packaged up mini fresh balsam candles.
Team-Gifts-2017-1I used the 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bags, and just cut a piece of DSP to fit the inside.
Team-Gifts-2017-2I scored it at 2″ so it would lay flat in the bottom.
Team-Gifts-2017-3The boxwood wreaths are a perfect final touch to each of your pretty packaging! They are also very perfect for home decor pieces like this one.
Home-FrameHere’s another beautiful home decor piece (created by Sherry Roth) for our Christmas gift exchange. Do you have any left over pieces of Christmas DSP? This might be a great way to use some smaller pieces.Tree Frame I hope you are enjoying crafting this holiday season.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Time to celebrate fall

The weather is definitely changing. It’s time to celebrate fall. As much as I love all the new Christmas product in the Holiday Catalogue, I am totally in love with the Painted Harvest stamp set and coordinating leaf punch. The pictures are beautiful, but the magic happens when you actually stamp the sunflowers in person. The shading effects on each layer make it super easy to look like a professional watercolor-er. Is that even a word?

Here is the yellow version of the sunflower as seen in the Holiday Catalogue.
Painted-Harvest-1And here is a blue version.
Painted-Harvest-2I must say, I think the blue one is my favorite. It is one of the cards my club members get to make this month. The navy gingham ribbon is a beautiful addition to the card and is super soft and easy to tie. (The ribbon also comes in Smoky Slate.)
