Setting the Thanksgiving Table

The Sisters in Stamping blog is featuring Thanksgiving favors this week. Here is my project--
I used the new Envelope Punch Board (#133774, $19.95) and the Tags 4 You Bundle (pg.37 of the Holiday Mini catalog) to create my favor. I cut the leaves with the Autumn Accents Bigz die (pg.192 IB&C, #113468, $21.95) and used the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (pg. 191 IB&C, #117335, $7.95) to give them some texture.  It opens up--
I attached a pouch of Spiced Cider with some sticky strip. My pouch measured out to 3 1/2x 4 1/4 and I used the Punch Board to do the rest-- it was awesome! All of the guess work, measuring and scoring taken care of, you've gotta love that. I CASED the idea kinda, from Julie Davison, here is a link to her blog post.

There are more Thanksgiving favor ideas over at the Sisters in Stamping blog, so go take a look!

Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Christmas Ornaments

I picked Christmas Ornaments for this week's Sisters in Stamping post. Here is a picture of my Christmas Ornament--
We don't have our tree up yet....I'm bound and determined to get all of the Christmas Decor up this year over the Thanksgiving week-end! Seems like the last couple of years it's taken me forever to get it up and then it seems like I turn right around and have to take it down-- does that happen to you too?

Well, my Ornament Santa is pullin' double duty this year! This is a Decorative Window Gift Box (pg.36, #132146, $4.96/6 boxes)-- I punched a hole in the side where the flap goes in, folded the box up, filled it with Kisses and the glued my Santa onto the front. Quick, super simple just the way things should be for this time of year. You could easily make a few ahead of time to give!

Thanks (as always) for coming by! Happy Stamping-- Karla c(:

Friday Once Again!

Well, I hope you had a safe Halloween last night and you gathered loads of candy! I stashed a few of my favorites from the candy bowl for later....but, that's not why your here! It's Friday again (the weeks are just flying by) and it's Debbie's turn over at the Sisters blog and we are making projects using some of the super cute Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Here is my project for this week--

I used the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack, the new grey card stock called Smokey Slate (which I can't stop using) and some Coastal Cabana Ribbon to match. This cute little box was designed by Dawn O. you can see the tutorial here.
This was the Group Make & Take we made at the Fall Meeting last month, lots of fun! 
Have a great week and we will see you back here next Friday for some Christmas Ornaments. Until then, happy stamping!
