25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 24

At this time of year, you always need a cute little bag to hold a precious gift!  This penguin bag is based on a card I created for the middle school carnival station this afternoon. 

Punches must be my favorite accessory!  I hope you like my little Chilly Willy!

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 22

My customers laugh at me all the time when I use odd items in my stamping….well, what is more odd than a toilet paper roll?

These are like the English favor known as crackers, but they don’t "crack"!  Take an empty toilet paper roll, fill it with candy or small item, wrap it up with tissue paper, and tie it with pretty ribbon.  Decorate with a tag and you are set for a placemaker or certainly a conversation piece!

5 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 21

For your little "elves" – this popcorn slider is just the ticket!  I haven’t used many of the striped pieces of the Christmas Cocoa designer series paper – but I love it with this item!   When I make the hole for the ribbon, I don’t try and punch through all three pieces of card stock.  I make an impression and then punch through the top piece and then again on the back 2 pieces.  You pull the ribbon and the microwave popcorn sleeve slides up!  Perfect item to share while watching ELF tonight!

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 20

This is a cute little gift card holder I made at a workshop last month.  It uses my all-time favorite Stampin’ Up! exclusive die – TOP NOTE!  The main stamp set is Jolliest Time of the Year.  I just love snowmen!  Just put a little adhesive on the sides and bottom of the designer series paper so you can slip the gift card in and out of the holder.

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 19

Here is a great little travel cup I found at a local store for only $1.00.  It came with a cutesy pie insert, so I updated it with this punched art poinsettia.  You can change out the insert as the seasons change!  Be sure to keep the insert out of the dishwasher!

I used the Game-themed designer series paper in the background.  The large oval is a Big Shot oval.

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 18

Sometimes, a simple idea is perfect for that holiday gift.  Stamped and framed art is a perfect way to show your love this holiday!  The Holiday Mini set Delightful Decorations and the Merry Moments DSP coordinate beautifully.

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 17

Sorry the picture is a litle fuzzy.  These are new Stampin’ Up! bags – I LOVE THEM!  I am so into the Chocolate Chip, Real Red, and Old Olive colors this year!  This is a perfect size to give some reindeer food (or puppy chow) in.  This is one of the items my customers made at my Simple Christmas Gifts Stamp Camp.  We did need the Big Shot for the larger circle.  Rudolph’s nose has Crystal Effects on it so it shines!/

Sometimes stamping inspiration comes from packaging.  This delicious raspberry-flavored cocoa packet coordinates wonderfully with the Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede in colors!  This cocoa packet is embossed with white snowflakes (Serene Snowflakes).  The tag is made with the Big Shot circle and our snowflake punch.   A perfect item for class gifts, stocking stuffers, or customer thank yous!

This is a easy way to spruce up a little gift!  This pail has peanut butter cups inside – yummo!  By just adding bow and a tag (using the Embosslit Merry and Merry Details), it is a sweet treat to share!

25 Days of Holiday Projects – Day 11

Today’s project is a very simple one using the Sizzix Embosslit Merry which is exclusive to Stampin’ Up!  I also used the Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper.  I am a little addicted to Soft Suede and Real Red!
