December Angel Art a.k.a. Blog Hop

The PaperWings December Angel Art Theme for this month's blog hop is Winter. The guidelines are "to create a card, scrapbook layout, mini album, or an altered art related to winter. This could be a winter holiday such as Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or even winter as a season."

I chose to do an altered item. It's a stocking stuffer made from a round tin, TAC's Juliette Paper Collection, and Ghirardelli chocolate!!
Please check out the blogs of these TAC Angels for their winter creations. (Creations will be posted tonight or Monday morning).

Secret Sister Card


I am delighted to announce that my PaperWings Secret Sister is Sarah G. Here's the card I made for her to honor her. It's been lots of fun Sarah. See you on PaperWings.

The card uses the monochromatic greens Bazzill cardstock and the Girlz & Boyz stamp set.

Happy Stamping and Scrapping,

Snowman Tag Card in Blue


Here's another creation using the Amberly Grace Paper Collection from The Angel Company. The image is the delightful snowman stamp from the Gift Tags stamp set! It's simple and quick. And isn't it a refreshing change from the traditional colors of red and green for the holiday season!

Happy Stamping and Scrapping

Envelope Gift Card Holder

Although craft fairs are done, the other craziness of my life continues. I haven't been able to squeeze in blog updates for awhile so am taking advantage of a few quiet moments this morning (I'm sure it won't last long) to add one of my favorite Gift Card Holders.



My inspiration for this project came from Julie Hunt at Addicted 2 Stamping.



It is quick and simple and is perfect to package those gift cards for the holiday seasons. My holder features the Amberly Grace Paper Collection and the Christmas Circles stamp set from The Angel Company.



To make the gift card, start with a size A2 envelope. Fold it in half with the flap to the inside. Open it up and cut off the left side of the flap. Then add paper, stamps, ribbon, and other embellishments. The possibilities are endless! The gift card slips in under the flap on the right hand side!



Enjoy...
