Final ...... Cozy Critters

This is the last of the cards that I've made so far with the Cozy Critters Hostess stamp set.

I used some of the Stitched Shapes framelits again for this card. I absolutely love these ..... and so do you apparently too! Sadly Stampin' Up! have had to temporarily stop orders for them - just for a little while. The stock is completely depleted and there is a large back order for them. They will come back though .... as soon as more stock comes in - I will let you know as soon as this happens :o) You can find full details for them HERE.

Here's To Cheers - Bottle Tags

For the first time in many years, I have started 'sorting' Christmas gifts early!

Even though I don't really have that much to do each year, I tend to leave it until the last minute - so it always turns into a bit of a panic'd rush in the end! Not this year though, I've almost finished everything :o)

I give many bottles of wine to friends and family and like to make them a little more 'special' with the packaging.

This year I've used the Here's to Cheers stamp set and the co-ordinating Cheerful Tags framelits. 

One of the framelits creates this awesome bottle tag that slips over the neck of your bottle. I placed the wine into one of our new large Gusseted Cello Bags first, before adding the Tag.

I then decorated the Tag using some of our Copper Foil sheets and Copper embossing powder.

The Stamp set, Framelits and Cello bags are all reduced in the current Online Extravaganza Sale - BUT this sale ends today, so don't delay your orders!! :o)

Cookie Cutter Christmas - Party - Door Prize

When I do a Party as well as giving a little gift to my Hostess, I always take a gift to give as a 'Door Prize' too :o)

The names of everyone attending go into a 'hat' and I pull out one to receive the prize.

I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set to decorate my little boxes - together with a little of the Candy Cane Lane paper.

I created the boxes to hold the chocolate treats inside :o) I found that 4 of the mini Green and Black's chocolates fit neatly inside one of our new sized 8" x 2" Cello bags.
