Handmade Gifts are the Best

This year my daughter chose to hand make several of those no-sew fleece blankets for her cousins.  She had quite a few to make so I thought I would come up with a cute tag for her to put on the gift bags.

They are popped up for a little  added cuteness.
Supplies: Stampin Up: cardstock & popdots, Stamps: My Pink Stamper & The Stamps of Life, Cricut, Gypsy, Plantin School Book, Create a Critter

Christmas is getting near.  I really need to wrap up some presents and finish some things up around here.  Today I am going to show the cappuccino packets I made for some teachers.
I used a silver pigment ink that is hard to see in the first picture.  Here is a close up.

1st Snow...

Well we had our first accumulating snow today.  I {heart} snow.  As long as I don't have to drive in it.  :)

So with the snow outside I decided to finish up some holiday projects.  This first is the cocoa packets for school.  I made 30 of them so I did these assembly style.
The die cut cocoa mug was especially easy to do using my Gypsy.  I used the mug from gypsy wondering and using the hide/contour feature enabled me to cut all three pieces in different colors.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder from Stampin Up and a stamp set from My Pink Stamper.

Bundle up and stay warm.  This is the perfect time of year to curl up with a good book and a warm up of cocoa.

Supplies: Cricut, Gypsy, Gypsy Wanderings, Sizzix Embossing folder from Stampin Up, Cardstock: Stampin Up & DCWV, Clear Bag from Stampin Up, Stamp from My Pink Stamper, Ink: CTMH, Nestle Cocoa & Mini Candy Canes.

Count down to Christmas...

Wow. Dec. 1st already?  The countdown is on.  I have almost all my shopping done.  I just have to come up with something for a few more people and then I will be done.  I hope to wrap up all my shopping this weekend.  I hate waiting until the last minute.  I am also hoping the tree will be up this weekend.  I already went with my daughter to Hallmark to let her get her ornament.  She has been collecting the angel series for 4 or 5 years now. Seeing the new one in the series is one of her favorite things to do each year.

The card I am sharing today features a cupcake from Gypsy Wanderings and a sentiment from My Pink Stamper stamps.  I still think cupcake cards are just too cute!
