This is where all of the magic happens. ;) Or where all of the mess happens. :) It looks messy, but it is really organized.
On to the projects!! I love this cute tin. It is My Minds Eye pattern paper and die cuts. The festive colors and whimsical characters make it a perfect fir in my house for the holidays. I painted a big tin (it had peanuts in it origianlly) and then covered it with pattern paper and embellishments. I used my Xyron Design Runner and Design Disc Maker to print the tag. It is so cool to be able to type whatever I want my tags to say and print it right where I want it. No computer necessary. ;) I think I will be filling this tin with a small pair of gloves, some hot cocoa with marshmallows and a cute felt cup cozy. The perfect gift for a teenage girl or babysitter.
Same mug, different style. This one is using the Christmas Stack pattern paper by Die Cut With A View. I made a pinwheel cupcake pick out of vellum to match the paper. The snowflake punch, glitter and stamped sentiment are from Martha Stewart. I filled the mug with white shred paper and sat the cupcake right on top. What a great way to sweeten someone's day. :)

This is a triangle cone. Again, I made the template myself, but the idea is not mine. This is a project that was made for Glue Arts. It uses alot of their great adhesives; High tack adhesive lines, squares and micro squares. This new holiday paper from October Afternoon is soooo cute. The gingerbread man is a Sizzix die. Felt holly leaves from American Crafts with miscellaneous buttons. The scallop border is a new Martha Stewart punch and the 'believe' sheer card is from Maya Road. You could fill this with any little goodie. Enjoy!

This was my first attempt at an acrylic album. It was made for Impressive Pages using one of their 8x8 acrylic albums. You can check them out here: http://impressive-pages.com/

I made a bunch (5 dozen) of different items to donate for my daughters preschool craft fair. Quick and easy little goodies that sold like hotcakes. :) Nothing was left and all the money went to the preschool. There were embossed napkins tied with vintage seam binding and glittery fall goodness, 16 oz. to go coffee cups (inside was a coffee sleeve and a packet of instant mocha or latte mix), packets of hot cocoa mix (2 packets of mix per wrap), tea bag packets and some notepads (no photos, sorry). The last photo is just some of the different tags I made to go on the tea and cocoa packets. Just lots of little goodies to share with friends, hostesses or co-workers.
If you want directions on any of these leave me a comment and I can post a quick tutorial/instructions for them. I am working on another post with a new template for more yummy fun. :) Enjoy and stay warm!
