Snow Man Soup

Here are some cute little soup kits I made as gifts this year.  The snowman is altered from the "Christmas Cards" Cricut cartridge and I had several left over from last years Christmas card.  I was running down to the wire on getting these sent, so I needed a quick project and this fit the bill.  It was quick and very inexpensive.  You could actually give it all winter long.  Please enjoy the video.

Christmas Card 2011

I am finally getting around to posting this year's Christmas card.  I know its a little late.  I saw a white on white card while blog hopping one day.  I had planned to do something else for this year's card, but when I saw this one, I quickly changed my mind.  The little pop of red is a great accent.  The sentiment on the inside can be seen on the video and was from a stamp I picked up from Hobby Lobby.  "Merry Christmas" is from K. Andrew Design's "Winter Wishes" set and can be found by clicking on the picture below.

I trust you had a Merry Christmas.  Enjoy the video.

Merry Christmas

I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!  I pray that the Christ of Christmas will have first place in your lives.

Sweet Christmas Treat Bags

My plan for my co-worker's Christmas gift this year has been to make toffee and then make cute little headers for treat bags.  However, I am once again running out of time.  I decided to modify my original plan and this is the bag that I came up with.

Cellophane bag (4X6)
Raffia ribbon from Joann's
Peapod and Maraschino twine (from the Twinery)
Small tags (I used Avery marking tags)
Festive Berries distress ink

K. Andrew Designs "Sweet Wishes" bonus set  (Go to to order these great stamps!)
Tim Holtz ink applicator.

Stamp image onto a plain white tag.  Ink around the edges.  Wrap your treat (I had home made toffee) in wax paper and tie with the twine.  Place in a cellophane bag.  Tie bag and attach the ribbon and tag to the bag using the twine.

I made 48-50 of these little bags and it went together fairly quickly.  Thanks for stopping by.
