Bath bomb Advent Calendar

I shared the Activity Advent Calendar I created for my oldest daughter and grand daughter here.  Well of course, I have to have one for my youngest daughter.....

She loves her baths, so I purchased 24 bath bombs of a variety of scents so she can have a luxurious bath each night in December :)

I had ordered the bath bombs and they were  just ready for pick up tonight so I whipped up some packaging and they are now ready for giving.  I used the Tall Tag Duo from MFT to create the large tags but the rest is from Stampin' UP!

To create the tag, I used the Merry Little Christmas collection - love the buffalo plaid!  I then stamped the sentiment from the Merry Little Labels set, and then punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch.   Then to add some pizzaz to the tags, I embellished with the Green Sprigs and Mini Ornaments.

Deck the Halls.... falala

I had to create another Christmas sweater card for another friend of mine.   One of hers (yes she owns a few!) is blue, so I tried to make one similiar to hers.  Of course once again, I used the Christmas Sweaters stamp set.  Once again, pairing with the Be Merry designer paper. I have also used the Merry Music Specialty paper to complete the theme.

A bit of coloring and they were done.  I mounted the sweaters on foam squares and of course some sequins to add to the bling.   Finally, a die cut sentiment from Simon Says.

Chocolate Makes Everything Better

I am getting my little hostess gifts ready for the upcoming season.  One of my friends, loves her chocolate so I created a little chocolate giftie for her using the Forever My Always collection by Pebbles. I know it is meant for Valentines, but I made it work for a little Christmas gift as well.

I used the Season of Sweetness stamp and die set from CTMH because really.... isn't it the truth?! ;)

Nice List

The JUGS inspiration photo made me think of the Happy Holidays paper from SugarPea Designs so I had to play along.  I used the Here Comes Santa stamp set.... because... well.... Santa :)

I also used the Santa's Gift Tag set.  Santa is mounted on foam squares for some dimension.

Deck the Halls with Christmas Sweaters

I received some new SU! goodies today and had to play with them!

It seems that to be a member of our staff at school.... Christmas sweaters are a must so I had to have the Christmas Sweaters stamp set as I will use it to create cards for a couple of my friends on staff.  I paired it with the Be Merry paper collection... because, well... green, red and white to me, make the perfect Christmas sweater ;)

For some interest on the white paper, I embossed it with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder (the Cable Knit one would have worked here as well - and guess what... on SALE now!).  There is just something about woodgrain.  The I also got the Scallop Tag Topper and had to use it as well.  Fun! Now to make it like a real Christmas sweater, I added a pom pom and chunky glitter to the hat.
