Our theme for this months blog hop is
I'm a teacher and that means lots of work friends who will need a little gift before the middle of December. I bought some beautiful tea light candles from Dusk so I could gift them with cards.
I've planned out a few ways to package these but when the clear boxes arrived I wanted to use them for some of the candles. They fit perfectly!
I created a garland using the Warm Hugs bundle and attached the stamped and cut images to the twine. A simple background stamping on Real Red Cardstock and this created such a simple but pretty little project.

I've had mini coffee cups in my stash for a while and I've wanted to make a quick birthday coffee cup with card, so this challenge was perfect to push me to finally use them.

There are several birthdays I need special cards for coming up - and its not something I have a lot in my pile of made cards. Here is a sneak of one...
I've discovered that I don't have many birthday sentiments and found this one in my old stash.... I have added new sentiment sets to my list for the upcoming catalogue and Sale-a-Bration.

Welcome to The Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop Round 37 where our theme is
I've been playing with boxes lately, especially seeing Christmas is fast approaching and I need plenty of small gifts on hand.
There has been lots of scoring, burnishing and using Designer Series Papers to create some cute boxes ready to fill with things like nail polish and hand cream, tea light candles in pretty scents or coffee sachets with some homemade treats. These 2 boxes are just a sample of what I've made already! The tall box will be filled with shortbread cookies, mini candy canes and hot chocolate packs ready for a Christmas Eve treat for friends of ours. The box (which already has a card attached to the top) will come in handy to fill with a handmade sewing project I have in mind for a little person.

On my 'to do' list for Christmas is to try a few different folds of cards and boxes. I was inspired by Angela Pyjas today and a video she posted on her blog "Stampin with amore".
My version using Just Jade and the Heartwarming Hugs DSP. I used the dies from the Wishes and Wonder bundle and for the first time in years, I stamped with white ink for the sentiment.
The champagne foil really added the sparkle needed for this festive project. And I'm a sucker for that deer!

This weeks challenge was just that - a challenge! We could only use ink-paper-stamps. Thats it. I'm an embellishments and die cut girl these days.
I'm really happy with the simplicity of this card and think it would be a good one for a beginner. I used stampin blends in Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Just Jade and Pool Party. I did miss the deadline to join in the challenge though, too busy with life and forgot to upload before the cut off - oh well.

I thought it would be nice to do a speedy project to go with the cards this weekend at our workshop.
