Noel Banner

I just love this banner.  My friend Michelle Snyder created it...and I loved it and I had to copy it!!!  I think it is so pretty!  I used Close to my Heart's Oh Deer paper pack and the Close to my Heart's Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.

You still have time to make yours!!  Merry Christmas!

Winter Wonderland

Its getting time to think Winter Wonderland!  Here are a few more layouts using Close to my Heart's Cozy Christmas stamps and thin cuts.  You can get the stamp set separate (D1695  $17.95) or get the stamps AND the thin cuts (Z4008 $26.95).  I love the thin cuts because you can cut them fast and perfect!!  Love that!  I also added our snowflake thin cuts...unfortunately they are sold out!  YIKES!  These stamps are only available until December 31st, so make sure you get them if you want them.

The second layout is using our Perfectly Pine Stamp set (A1191 $6.95).  I am so in love with this stamp set too!  I will be sad at the end of the year when they are gone.

Stop by my website to get yours!  gottastamp.closetomyheart.com

Plain Bag to Cute Gift

At my recent 3 day crop, I made these cute goodie bags.  I took an ordinary lunch bag, that I had...remember use what you have whenever possible and decorated it with these cute little critters.  They are from our Woodland Critters (C1657 $13.95) stamp set.

If you are interested in getting this stamp set, you need to get it before the end of the year!!  That is quickly approaching so don't delay!

I just love to be able to take something that you have already in your house and use it to create something so cute!

Christmas Treats

I love making little treats for when I go to see friends..or if you want to decorate your table with something easy.  Here are two gifts.  The first one was inspired by my sweet friend Michelle Snyder.  I found some "extra" bags in my stash...remember try to find stuff you already have!  And I filled it with Hershey kisses (again I had some in my stash that I got for the 2nd project here)  You can fill your bag with anything.  Then I stamped the ho ho ho tag from Perfect Presents.  I just stamped it in cocoa ink on a piece of kraft cardstock that has the little white dots on it (from Rusty Home Fundamental paper pack). Tied it with some twine I had...and tada, cute little gift.

Then, I saw a variation on pinterest...simply take those Hershey kisses and cut a Christmas tree (or whatever you want), glue it to a toothpick...I used liquid glass for my adhesive.  Then I stuck the toothpick in the kiss and done.  I will have these out as a little table decoration.  How cut and easy are those!  Next year I will make them again and I am sure I will have a little grand daughter going down the table eating them all up!  LOL

Get your crafting supplies out and make your goodie bags and table decorations now...before things get too crazy!  lol

And remember, you can get all these supplies at my website. www.gottastamp.closetomyheart.com

Snow Fun Layouts!

It is getting to that time of year when the snow will start falling and I have a few layouts ready and waiting for just that!

This first layout is more Christmasy, with an outdoors feel.  I am so in love with these stamps I used on it.  It is the Woodland Wishes.  You can get the thin cut bundle.  That comes with the coordinating thin cuts that cut the trees, snowflakes and reindeer (make sure you put a red gem on his nose!) then you stamp right on the cut image!  LOVE IT!

I also used our City Sidewalk paper pack!  AND, if you love this paper pack and want to make 6 pages...make sure you come to my December groups!  We are making 6 more pages!!  You will be all ready for your Christmas pictures!!

Then on this layouts...much different look, but guess what!  The SAME paper pack!  (City Sidewalk) That blue with the trees on it is my favorite piece in that paper pack.  But look at the different look you get.  This layout is using our Cozy Christmas thin cut/stamp bundle.  Yep, you cut the shapes using your Cuddlebug and the thin cuts and then stamp on the cut images

These stamps, thin cuts and paper packs are only available until December 31st (or while supplies last)...so make sure you get yours soon.  And, make sure you get out there when it snows and get those pictures taken...and make sure you get them developed!  LOL
