Lots to share today!

I have been busy!  Thankfully my husband has really supported me (and my paper habit!) and kept our house running while I have been working on all this stuff  ;)
I found this tutorial for an animal crackers-style box, and it was super simple to make.  I actually made this set second, with just a heavy weight cardstock and no other layers.  I used the new Peppermint Forest stack that I got at Joanns, lots of fun glitter!  I also used the Christmas Noel Solutions cartridge to cut out the snowflake on the front of the box, thanks Kim for letting me borrow it!

Here's the first batch I made, also using a new stack, one of the Holiday Collections, and the coordinating cardstock stack.

On all these, I saved the cut-out from the front and used it as a tag on the ribbon.

These next tags were inspired by this blog, they were so cute!  I just love this stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Next are some gift card holders, like these, super cute and easy!  

And some more gift card holders like these, and I made these all from scraps.

And last but not least, the cards.  I made a few different sets of 12 each.  This first one is also using the Christmas Noel cartridge, love it!

This one is more of that Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad, it's gone a long ways!  Plus that cute ornament stamp and punch set too, lots of fun ways to use it :)

Now this, I love this.  This beautiful card, I wish I could say it was my idea, but I lifted it from here.  I used slightly different products for the backgorund paper, but it looks very similar.  I inked up a plain white piece of cardstock with Tim Holtz Broken China, Dusty Concord and Weathered Wood Distress inks, and then misted it lightly with a mix of Perfect Pearls and water.  Then I heat embossed the snowflake stamps with sparkly powder, very cool.  The black sillhouette is from that same Christmas Noel cartridge, but Holy Moly!  This cut is at 2" and it's so very tiny, and a serious pain in my a** to cut, but it was worth it!

Phew, that's it for now ;)  If you want to get your hands on any of these, I will be selling them at a few craft fairs around here really soon!   I will be at United Church by the firehall in Ferndale on November 7th, Hope In Christ Church in Bellingham on November 6th and 7th, and the Deming Log Show grounds on November 14th.
