Andes Treat Boxes

These little boxes are so fun and fit the Andes candies perfectly!  I make a few little gifts to have on hand just in case someone comes by with a gift I wasn't planning on.  They went together super quick and easy and just make it a fun way to give these candies!  The cut files are from the Silhouette store.  The tags were made with the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped with the Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set from My Craft Spot.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas filled with family and love!

Gift Box

I just love these papers from Carta Bella called Merry & Bright, they are such fun colors and prints!  The box is from Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette store.   I shrunk it down a lot, it was so huge and I didn't want it that big, but if you need a big gift bag this would work.   The cute tag was made with the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped with the Tiny Tags Christmas both from My Craft Spot.  

There is a huge sale going on right now at My Craft Spot so make sure to check it out!

Christmas Blessings Card

 I love these fun shaped cards.  This one was made and glued onto the rectangle card base.  It was made with the Winter Woodland and Artiste cricut cartridges.  The sentiments are from the computer. I added stickles to the snow and Dylusions Spray ink to the whole thing.

Christmas Treat Containers!

I couldn't decide what to make...so I made 3 different things.  They were all super quick and easy to do so if you need a fun little treat holder these will do the trick!
For the first one here I used the new Handled Candy Pocket.  This is so awesome it will hold a packet of hot cocoa mix or I put in 4 Ghirardelli squares, 2 on each side.  The cute little penguin is from the Holiday Present Sider Card Set, LOVE this set!!

For my next project I made a pillow box from the Santa Gift Card Holder file and just left off the Santa stuff.  I added that sweet little penguin instead from the Holiday Present Slider Card Set.

For the next project I used the same pillow box file from the Santa Gift Card Holder.  This time I added some holly, twine and a brad.  For the holly I used the Holiday Titles and Mats file and just used the holly (not the shadow).  

Believe Card

I think this paper is so pretty, I am really loving it!  This little card was made with the Winter Woodland, Joys of the Seasons and Artiste cricut cartridges.  The sentiments are from my computer.  I sprayed it with Dylusions White Linen ink spray.

Snowflake Milk Cartons

I got these cute little milk cartons already cut out in a kit from the American Crafts sale.  They even had the tape on them, talk about easy to make and the best part...there were 4 in a package for $1.00 yep you read that right one dollar!  It came with the twine, tag, and bell also.  You can't beat that!  The snowflake is on the front and the back, so cute!

These were bought at the American Crafts Warehouse sale so they are probably not online.  Every year AC has a warehouse sale here in Utah and it is so awesome!  I love it!  My husband not so much!  No he actually has gone and picked up the daily special for me sometimes, for the last 2 years it is very close to his office.

My Craft Spot Challenge #160

The challenge this week at My Craft Spot was a challenge for me...hence that's why we call it a challenge!  It is to make the sentiment the focal point of the project.  I made a step card with different christmas papers and  stamped the sentiment from the Merry and Bright stamp set on the banner.  It is a very simple card but I like how it turned out.

Look Who I Met!!

I went to the American Crafts warehouse sale and look who I ran into!!  Lisa Bearnson!!!!  I have been a fan of hers for years...so I was super excited to actually meet her.  She was so sweet and gracious, I felt bad because after I went up and introduced myself it opened the door...so everyone was.  It took her awhile to do her shopping but she was so kind.
Thank you for all the years of inspiration Lisa you are awesome!!
