Purple Pedicure Presents!

This was a special request from Kelsie's mom, Valerie.  She watches two little girls and needed something to surprise them with this Christmas.  She said that purple was their favorite color.  I used this template to make the boxes, I just made two of them to hang back to back.
Here is the side/back view:

To personalize each gift, I cut the Open Oval Scallop My Favorite Things Die-Namics Die.  I stamped the stems using Papertrey Ink Blooming Button Bits Set, then glued some of my crocheted hearts onto the stems.  Using some alphabet beads, I spelled each of the girls' names on to the front.  I filled the boxes up with various items every little girl needs for pretty fingers and toes!
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Blooming button Bits
Ink:  Memento
Paper:  Bazzill
Misc:  Crocheted hearts, alphabet beads, pop up dots, ribbon, Scor-Pal, My Favorite Things Open Oval Scallop Die-Namics Die, naill polish remover, mani/pedi supplies

Tea Light Snowman Ornament

It's been cloudy and overcast in Central Florida for days now.  So, unfortunately, my pictures are kind of dark.
I had some battery operated tea lights that I bought (who knows when!) and decided to make some ornaments.  I love snowman, not the snow, so I made these up using some paper punches.  I used a Bic Marker to color the nose orange.  Please don't notice that the buttons are crooked!  Oh well, that's how you tell he is homemade!

Paper:  MME, Bazzill
Misc:  Battery operated tea lights, baker's twine, pom poms, paper punches, white gel pen, pop up dots, ribbon, black rhinestones, ribbon, buttons, Bic pen

Warm Wishes

I cut some skates out with my Cricut Winter Woodlands Cartridge and decided to make a winter card with them.  Since  the skates are kind of fat, with the pompoms and baker's twine, I thought a bag would be a better way to give the card.  I also made a matching tag.

Here is a close up of the tag:

Stamps:  Hero Arts-Warm Winter Wishes To You
Paper:  Authentique, Bazzill
Ink:  Versafine
Misc:  Clothespin, pop up dots, baker's twine, pompoms, pearls, snowflake paper punch, paper sack, button, black sharpie, Nestabilities

"My Type" Christmas Cards

These were really easy and fast cards that I whipped up.  I cased them from a very talented stamper when I was surfing on the internet.  Unfortunately, I can't find her post, so I can't give her the credit!
I did change a few little things.  She had used the Martha Stewart Bow Paper Punch, since I don't have that one, I just substituted a little ribbon bow.  Her sentiment was more of a "typed" sentiment, again I didn't have that stamp, so I just substituted a Papertrey Ink stamp.
Stamps:  Hero Arts-My Type and Papertrey Ink-Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers
Ink:  Versafine, Memento
Paper:   Bazzill
Misc:  Ribbon, Martha Stewart Fir Paper Punch

Snowflake Gift Set

Today, I decided to make a gift set with some of my embroidered snowflakes.  There is bag with a matching tag, a pillow box with Hershey Nuggets and a paper pouch with a special surprise tucked inside.
The gift bag was made using the Papertrey Ink Front & Center #1 Die.  The tag was made using the My Favorite Things Scallop Die-Namic.  The tag was Pinterest inspired.  I added a little machine stitching to both the tag and bag for a little added dimension.

Tag close up:
Next up is the paper pouch.  Again, I added a little extra dimension with some machine stitching (of course, you can't see it!) and the belly band was run through the crimper.

I cut a pillow box using the Sizzix Pillow Box Die.  I stamped some snowflakes on with White Stazon Ink.

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Holiday Button Bits and Tiny Treats Christmas
Ink:  Versafine, Stazon, Color Box
Paper:  Recollections, We R Mememory Keepers
Misc:  Buttons, crochet thread, embroidered snowflakes, crimper, paper punches, white pearls, Papertrey Ink Front and Center Die #1, Sizzix Pillow Box Die, My Favorite Things Scallop Die-Namics, paper doily, paper sacks, sewing machine, pop up dots, tulle
