Gift Card Slider

My cousin Sydney turned 13! She's officially a teenager - WOW! I got her a gift card & some lip gloss and decided to use the "Slider" format to decorate the gift card up a bit.

Basket full of Sliders

Are you hosting a holiday get-together this year? These would make great little take-home gifts for your guests. I filled a basket with Candy Bar Sliders & Hot Cocoa Sliders (see the two posts below for details on each). You just put this cute basket by your door and as guests leave they can take a pretty little treat home with them!

Candy Bar Sliders

I'm getting ready for a craft show I'm doing with my Scoompa (grandpa to the rest of the world), and I want to make sure I have a good mix of some lower-priced items. I think these Candy bar sliders would make great stocking-stuffers or Secret Santa Gifts and at only $2.00 each, they are affordable for even the strictest budgets!

Cocoa Sliders

Here are more stocking-stuffer & Secret Santa gift ideas - Hot Cocoa Sliders. I made a bunch of these to sell at the craft show (they are selling for $2.00 a piece). One of these sliders paired with a cute mug would make great "Thinking-of-You" gift for someone...Or pair one of these sliders with a gift card to a local coffee shop and you've got yourself a super cute gift!

Another Advent Calendar - Traditional Christmas Colors

Here is another Countdown to Christmas Advent Calendar I made for my Aunt & two cousins. They preferred a more traditional Christmas color scheme, so this is what I came up with! The girls will have fun filling the tins for each other with little goodies & activities like "Sing a Christmas Carol", "Decorate the tree", "Watch a Christmas movie", "Wash the dishes", "Vacuum the house"...hee, hee, hee - wouldn't it be funny to fill the tins with chores and watch their faces!

Magic Reindeer Food

This is a fun little activity to do with the "little ones" in your life on Christmas Eve. The poem reads,

"Sprinkle on the lawn at night,
The moon will make it sparkle bright,
As Santa's reindeer fly & roam,
This will guide them to your home.
**These are available for purchase for $1.00 each.

It's almost time to start counting down the days until Christmas!
Each 2" tin is filled with candy, treats, and fun "to-do's" or activities like "Bake Christmas cookies", or "Watch a Christmas movie", or "Donate a gift to Toys for Tots"...

More Christmas Card Ideas

Christmas will be here before you know it! I've been getting into the Holiday spirit by making a bunch of Christmas card "mock-ups." Each card has a spot on the inside where I can include our Santa photo...I just can't decide which design to choose for our Christmas Card this year!

**All of my cards are available for purchase. Set of 10 - $15.00 Set of 30 - $42.00

Noel Package Tags

I'm going to be wrapping many of my Christmas gifts this year using brown kraft wrap. I just love the way that brown kraft looks, but I also want to make sure that I have some color added to the gift presentation, so I came up with these gift tags. I'll be using some matching ribbon on the packages and voila, a pretty Christmas package!

**These are available for purchase - $5.00 for a set of 10

Chloe Addison

Here is the baby shower gift I sent my sister-in-law. Our newest niece is due in January and will be named Chloe Addison. I wanted to do something special for her nursery...

Each letter is roughly 12 inches tall and is covered in decorative papers & embellished to coordinate with the crib bedding.

More Christmas Card Proto-Types

I received another order from Papertrey Ink (I just love their supplies) and I was so excited to get started on a few more Christmas Card prototypes. I really like the idea of using a large gift tag as a greeting card. The overall size is roughly 4" x 5.5" & the card fits perfectly into a standard A2 envelope.

I just love the color combo & I love the new "postage" looking stamp...too cute!
All of the cards you see on my website are available to be purchased in eaches, sets of 10 & sets of 30 with matching envelopes. You can contact me directly if you are interested.
**Set of 10 - $15.00 Set of 30 - $42.00

Holiday Gift Card Holders

I'll bet everyone out there purchases at least one gift card as a gift for someone this Holiday season...isn't this a great way to dress-up a plain 'ole gift card!?!?

These (and many more) are available for purchase for $3.50 each.
