New Year's Gifts

All the Christmas parties are over and we are moving on to the next celebration. We got invited to a pre-new years party and of course I never want to come empty handed. I found these cute 8.4 fl oz. Sparkling Cider Bottles ( I didn't know they make them that little) in a Dollar Tree store so I had to get some to decorate them really pretty.
The card was a last minute idea to give to the Hostess with some flowers. I like the way it came out.

 On the next picture you have a better view from the side. It folds flat, but needs a larger envelop if you would like to send it by mail. 
Hope you enjoyed todays projects.
I wish you a Happy New Year and stay safe out there.

Presents & Pinecones

The countdown is on! Only five more days until Christmas, and my craftroom looks like Santa's Workshop. Last minute presents and stocking stuffers need to be done.

This was one of my favorite suites for this years Holiday Catalog, the Presents & Pinecones suite. I love the little pine cones they look so real.

 This box is actually part of a New Year's Popper box, which I cut the top of it off and replaced it with window cling.

Hope you enjoyed todays project.
Have a very Merry Christmas!

Candy Cane Treat Holder

I just got done making a hole bunch of these cute little treat holders for my Husbands colleagues. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you, my craft room looks like Santa's Workshop. I have projects allover the place and everything seems to glimmer with glitter.
I found this project on Pinterest and the credit goes to Sam Hammond from England. These little treat holders are really easy and fast to make.
But just in case here are the measurements:
Cardstock – 4 x 10″
Score on the LONG side at  5-3/4, 6-1/4″
Designer Series Paper   2-3/4 x 3-1/2″ AND 2-3/4 x 2-1/2″
Cardstock   2-1/2 x 2-1/2″  AND 2-1/4 x 2-1/4″

Santa Clause Treats

It is a tradition for me to have always a little gift for my customers when they come to my workshops, and I always prepare something matching the season.  For this month I chose to make little Santa Clauses with swirl lollipops. My lovely Hubby created a little wood stand so they can be used for decoration.
The Jolly Friends Stamp Set was just perfect for this little project. If you would like to make something like this you can order the Stamp set right HERE, and it is even  discounted right now.

Team Christmas Party

A couple of weeks ago our team got together and celebrated Christmas. It is a tradition for us to buy a small gift but wrap it up BIG, because for us stampers it's all about the packaging.
To make it even better, everybody gets to vote on the best gift.

When I received the 2016/17 Holiday catalog I got this crazy idea to make a wreath.  Believe me, at the time I did not know what I got myself into. Needless to say, after I was done  I had to retire
the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies for a little while. My hubby helped me out with the lighting.  The final project was just stunning.  I did win first prize with this project and that made my
work so worth while.

We also had a card competition, and for my entry I used the Star of Light Bundle with the Copper Foil Sheets. I was shocked
when my card won the first price also. It was a real honor being  
chosen twice by Stampin up Demonstrators to win.
