My first Christmas gift of the season

I was so happy that I was able to finish creating and gift my first gift of the 2015 holiday season on Nov 30th.
You see it was very important that this gift get done by Nov 30th as it was an advent calendar that I was creating.
I wanted to do up this tasty gift for my beautiful cousin, Heather as I knew she would enjoy having this the all season long.

First I started with my Steeped Tea stash.
I am a tea drinker through and through.  No coffee for THIS GAL.
When I found this CANADIAN tea company I was just thrilled and although I may have thought I was drinking delightful teas before there is NO COMPARISON now that I have been spoiled with Steeped Tea.

     
Secondly I found a cute box at the dollarstore and included a Steeped Tea catalogue as well so she could see all the ingredients of each tea.

I used the, now retired, Stampin' Up! pillow box die for the Big Shot and made 24 boxes out of real read and garden green.

I stamped them in the same colours with the bells from Cozy Christmas stamp set and the small tree from Peaceful Pines.  I numbered them with the archival black and the Larger than Life numbers.


Then I chose 24 different teas (black, rooibos, green, oolong, herbal, fruit, etc) and put enough for one cup of tea in each little bag for each day.  I printed out labels for the bag with the name of the tea and the type.

    
Two layers of pillow box teas with glittery tissue paper and a printed copy of the steeping times for each type of tea.

All boxed up and ready to GIFT!!
I think she liked it too....she already told me she is enjoying her "cup a day!"  
WAHOO!

Merry Christmas to all my stampin' friends.
May you all enjoy a very merry holiday season full of love, laughter and good times with the ones that you hold dear to your heart.

Card Candy Swap

While attending convention in July, there were 9 of us that got together for a fabulous dinner, as is our tradition every convention we attend together.

This year for a swap we did card candy but as none of us were very familiar with the item we chose to do one piece each, any occasion. WELL, the swaps were beautiful and we had such fun making them and such a wonderful time at dinner that we dicided to try out hand at a set of card candy and theme them for Christmas.

We all live from Coast to Coast in Canada so it would to be mailed.  We decided on November 1st as a mailing date so that we would receive them in time to make up holiday cards.

I have had a ball putting these together!!  I sent this out early this past week and I just can't wait until I get beautiful crafts in the mail.  How exciting!!

Here's a look at my card candy swap.  I will be sure to post when I receive mine in the mail!!








Not bad for a Thursday nights work, eh?!  :-)

Sweet Lil' One

As you may have read in an earlier blog post I became an Aunty last month!!
So exciting and I can't wait to meet this little man this week.

I posted previously about the knits I had made for him. Yesterday I was finally able to get them all wrapped up.  Of course I used all my Stampin' Up! goodies for that.  :-)

Here are some pictures of the gift wrapping, the hand knit tags and the card.


The wrapping for his Yoda Sweater.



 




The wrapping for his little hat.


The wrapping for his baby blanket



  
The wrapping for his two pairs of booties.


Here is a pic of the card that I made. I used the framelits to cut out a frame for the little man's picture.  My brother doesn't want pics posted of him so I am trying to hide it.  I forgot to take a photo before the pic went in!!!

ECSE - Part 5 - My presentation

This was my third time presenting at the East Coast Stamping Event.  When I was first asked I said yes quickly so that my brain wouldn't figure out what I was doing until it was too late!  LOL
You see I have a huge fear of public speaking.  I was the kid in school who was PAINFULLY shy.  I would get physically ill over presentations and didn't want to answer homework questions because I was so scared. 

I have come out of my shell over the years but it has taken some LONG, HARD work to get here.  I kept gradually stepping outside of my comfort zone and when these presentations came up I thought, HECK YEAH! ...but wondered what I got myself into the week before.  :-)

I am very thankful to Maree and Sandi for these opportunities as it was my presentation at the last ECS Holiday Event where Carrie Cudney saw me present.  (talk about nervous!!  OH. MY. Goodness!)  Well, she was the one who recommended me for the Inspire. Create. Share presentations this past July in SLC because she had seen me present at ECSE.  

SO WAHOO for stepping outside your comfort zone!

This time around was even easier as the ladies gave me a theme for my presentation.  
GLITTER!!!
I was all over that.  WAHOO!

I had many of my projects finished up for the presentation already.  I talked my way through what I did and had some odds and ends to show the ladies some of the techniques I used for applying the glitter.

Here are some pictures of the presentation.  One thing I have learned....talking pictures are never flattering!  ;-)






 

  


Here are some close ups of the projects I created for my presentation.

Altered dollarstore calendar with glimmer paper.

Altered micheal's journal with glimmer paper on the back and a dipped feather all glittered up!


The wal-mart RSVP pens.  One with glitter inside one with glitter on the outside.


Micheal's fish bowl, dollarstore gems and stones on the bottom.  Glittered pinecones and a scented candle in the middle.
VOILA! Centerpiece!



An altered dollarstore plain green glass candle holder with glitter inside and a battery operated tea light.



Plain wooden picture frame glittered up and a poinsettia flower added for a more Christmasy feel.
(Made with our punch of course!!)


Michael's greenery wreath with our pompom trim wrapped around.  I glittered up the clothes pins that hold the cards on the wreath!





That's our glitter ribbon added to clothes pins with tombo and our new fine tip glue!

  
Altered dollarstore clip board for our Naughty and Nice Lists.

Poinsettias that I made with our FAB punch and glimmer paper!

Last but certainly not least the flower wreath!

This was made using an old book, hot glue gun and GLITTER!!
