Holiday Inspiration!

With the Holidays fast approaching, it is time to turn my attention to family and so here is a collection of fun projects that my ladies and I have created ready for the festive season.

We had so much fun creating sweet treats to share that we've decided to create a treat book with our recipes and hints on how to survive the Holidays - I can't wait to make our project during our January Sale-A-Bration meeting.

Gift Tags With Space To Write In......

One of the things that always bothered me was when I used to write on gift tags, there was never enough space to write a message and as our family grew, there wasn't even enough room for all the names..........

.... Problem solved, I make my own and I can coordinate them with my parcels depending on the color paper I'm using - it's easy to change them up a little with some glitter here, a different ribbon there, or an extra layer of card and they are soooooo easy to make.

We usually give our teachers a sweet treat as their Christmas gift, but this year we're going to make packets of tags for each of them - I can't wait to give them this special Thank You!
Oh yes and we're making them at stamp club tomorrow, along with our gift card holders.

I love my Aqua Painter

Aqua Painter - Page 19 #103954 $16.95
You would think that my favorite use for our Aqua Painter would be something really creative wouldn't you?
No, not a bit of it - I love it because it's perfect for envelops. I don't have to lick them down any more, I just use my trusty Aqua Painter and the job is a breeze!

I've been meaning to show you this......

Each year when we trick or treat, the children visit a particular house. Last year they were introduced to a new kitten called Pearl. This year they made a treat to take for Pearl.

While The Turkey Is Roasting.......

Every Thanksgiving while the turkey is roasting, we used to make a gingerbread house with the children, but my son has lots of food allergies and so it isn't quite as much fun any more, well it wasn't until we came up with making a gingerbread house without actually using food and now thanks to Decor Accents - Design-a-House #120911 $5.95 - Holiday Mini Page 37, our joint family creativity is back in full swing - Why don't you make this the year that you begin this fun tradition too....

Dear Santa I'm Really, Really Wishing For A Big Shot For Christmas!

When the Big Shot first came out I was a bit unsure of making the investment, but my dear Husband encouraged me to go ahead and buy one. Would someone please remind me to thank him? I can't believe how much I use it.

When my ladies first saw the Big Shot, I didn't think they'd invest in one, but I had a problem - I couldn't stop using my Big Shot even though I tried really hard because I knew that not everyone had one. Guess what? Now nearly all my ladies own a Big Shot and now they can't stop using them either!

Sooooo, if you don't have a Big Shot yet, remember to ask Santa very nicely, or tell one of your loved ones that they can order you one through me, where they'll receive preferred pricing on the product and shipping or ask them for a gift card which they can also get from me.

The dry embossing on these cards took just seconds using my Big Shot and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #120902 Page 26 of the Holiday Mini $7.95

To create the sliding sledding children, I simply cut a slit in the front of the card and inserted a stamped strip of coordinating card.

I added a little sparkle using Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and my Two Way Glue Pen.
