Can you guess what's inside?

It's Tegan here and I am so excited Christmas is just around the corner!  I love the holidays and getting together with family.   Today I want to share with you a little handmade gift (and box!)  I made to give to my mom who loves to drink sparkling grape juice out of those little fancy glasses!   Hmmmmmmmm~  Can you guess what is inside??

I made little drink charms!  These would also look super cute on a bottled water or cola!

I think I might make an extra set just to have on hand incase I get invited to any last minute Christmas parties~ they would make a great hostess gift!
To make the charms, I used the Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge and floral wire, which was pretty easy to shape into a nice circle.  I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge to cut out the little box.  Have a great holiday everyone! 
Supplies:  Country Charm Collection- Superstar (1511), Weekend Fun (1515), Tiny Floral Border (1513), Floral Field (1507); Sweet Tooth Collection- Sour Cherry (1559); Bonjour Collection- Paris Je T'aime (1541), Cafe Mosaic (1537), Les Fleurs (1538)

Good Tuesday morning everyone!  I am excited to share today's card with you all!  I made it using mostly The Paper Bakery's December Kit called Pay Day.  Be sure to check it out!  It is full of versatile papers and embellishments! 

I trimmed the chevron ribbon as thin as I could to make tassels!

And I made this little banner tag from the strip of bar code paper that we usually trim off our papers and throw away.  The collection is called "The Good Life" so I had to use that piece SOMEWHERE on one of my projects! 

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Hope you have a great Tuesday!
And hope you are ready for Christmas~ ( I certainly am WAY behind!  LOL)

Happy Birthday!

Well, my birthday isn't until next week, but I really want to share this birthday card with you!
I was inspired by the recent pie chart trend~  I love that it has three birthday greetings in one!

The papers I used are from the GCD Studios Splendor Collection~ I absolutely love the vintage feel of this line.  Thanks for stopping by today everyone~ have a great day!

The layout inspired by gift wrap

Good Tuesday everyone!  Hope you all are in the holiday spirit!  I certainly was while creating this layout- can you tell?   It reminds me of a Christmas present!  Ooooh!  I love Christmas presents!

Oh it even has a gift tag!

I love these little alpha stickers!

Oh and look at that cute little tree! 

All of this goodness comes from The Paper Bakery's November Kit called Street Lamp! You will want to snatch one up before it is too late!  It is fabulous!

Oh and one more thing- I have a teaser of what's in store for The Paper Bakery's December kit!
Just a tiny peek is all I can show right now!

Have a fantastic day everyone!

Washi tape flowers

Hope everyone is in the holiday spirit! Today I am sharing a super fun gift card holder.  I am also going to show you how to make the washi tape flower I put on it.  Washi tape is so versatile!

And how do you make the washi tape flower you ask? 
1) Start by cutting a circle about 3 1/2" wide.

2)  Cut the entire circle into a spiral.
3)  Cover the entire spiral with short pieces of washi tape.  Pieces do not have to be perfect.
4) Once the spiral is covered with washi tape, curl it into a flower shape.  Put liquid adhesive on the underside of the spiral and reshape back into a flower.  You may have to hold it a few minutes while the adhesive dries.
5)  And the completed flower!  I stuck a brad in the center of mine.

All of these items came from The Paper Bakery's November scrapbook kit.  It is great and you can grab yours HERE!!    Until next time....
