Super Sweet Covered Cello Treat Bag for Class this Week!


This is the super sweet project we're making at stamp class this week! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how this little Cello Bag comes together with a simple piece of Designer Series Paper (those at class will have a choice of different patterns that all look so cute). With a couple easy score lines, the paper fits perfectly inside and creates a flap for the outside as well. It all ties up so neat and clean!

And the decor on the front is all made with the Spooky Fun and Halloween Scenes Edgelits Bundle. - Love all the pieces, and so many possibilities for tons of Halloween fun!!

I hope to see you at class this week,

Jar of Cheer Christmas Card!


This sweet and simple card is one I made for a swap I'm participating in! It's a swap for new Holiday Catalog sets - and I chose Jar of Cheer! So I made a couple cards using the jar, but thought it would different to use just the snowman, without the jar. He really is cute all by himself!

And for a great layout, I decided to use the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch from Craft Project Central. ~


You still have one more day to join the Challenge - you should check it out!
