Tea Lights in Festive Packaging

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing one of my December class projects. We have done stamped tea lights before - but I really wanted to use the cute stamps from Holiday Home and White Christmas - they are a great fit for these candles.


We made the little gift box using the Envelope Punch Board in Trim the Tree DSP and finished with cute Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding bow. 


I thought this would be a great gift to give to hostess over the festive season.

Blended Bloom in Old Olive

Hello Everyone

I thought I would do a non-festive project today. These Blended Bloom flowers are so much fun to colour and they look great in any of the Blendabilities colours - but you wouldn't  necessarily think it would work in green - but check out this Old Olive flower.


I love the way it seems to pop off the page. I stamped the background with more of the same stamp in Memento ink on Whisper White and the greeting comes from a set called Peace, Love and Cupcakes - love the font on that greeting.

Fancy Closure Bag

Hello Everyone

When my Curvy Keepsake die - I decided to have a play and see if I could use it to create a fun closure for a bag….and this is what I came up with.

I made a simple bag using the beautiful heavy duty Under the Tree speciality DSP.


I then cut two die cuts of using the Curvy Keepsake die in the red. I separated the closures,by removing the the slotted pieces from the base of the box. Those two I adhered to either side of the front of the bag - just gluing on the outer edges.  I used part of the base to flip over the top of the bag so it met the slots…if that makes sense! 


I finished with a tag, decorated with a greeting and some sequins. Hope you like today's project.
