SU Stars Blog Hop ~ Gift Giving Ideas

Hello and welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop!  You have arrived here from Denise Foor's blog:

Hi Ladies and welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop this month featuring Gift Giving Ideas!  I know that wine is a popular gift to give when attending parties, so I came up with an idea for a wine bottle tag ;)
I started out with Cherry Cobbler cardstock and ran the Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die thru my Big Shot. I cut 2 of these and used Whisper White for the cuff at the top of the stocking.  I scored just underneath the cuff on the front stocking so it lifts easily for writing/reading the note inside.  I used a piece of Crumb Cake thru the Big Shot with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and sponged it with Chocolate Chip ink.  I scored it and punched the top half with the Scallop Circle punch.  I then adheared the Winter Wishes holly leaf and berry stitched felt on with a few glue dots.  Now you can personalize it with a note of gratitude ;)

Hope you enjoy the hop!

Turkey Nugget Boxes

Hello crafty friends!  Today I want to share with you my adorable Turkey Nugget Boxes!  I sold a ton of these at the local craft fairs, people loved them!

Here's what I did:
-I rolled my Sizzix XL Matchbox die thru the Big Shot with Crumb Cake cardstock and assembled the box. 
-Next I sponged all around it with Chocolate Chip Ink. 
-Then I punched Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Modern Label punch.
-I took out my Gift Givers stamp set and stamped the turkey stamp with Black Stazon and punched him out with the Curly label punch.  I colored him in with Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and More Mustand using a Blender Pen. 
-I stamped the "Give Thanks" in Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and More Mustard from It's a Wrap Holidays stamp set onto Avery labels and wrapped them around the chocolate nugget candy.
-Lastly I cut a 1" strip of our Spice Cake fabric and tied it into a bow around the matchbox.

You can easily make these yourself!
Have a great day!

Halloween Hand Santizers

What a crazy couple of weeks it has been! I have been busy making Halloween, Fall and now Christmas items to sell at the local craft fairs!  Here are a few of the hand sanitizers I made.  Some of them I gave to my kids teachers, they love getting something special and I think they really deserve it!

I am planning to share a video this week of how to make one of these adorable, easy to make gifts for you to share with each other.

Hope you are having a great weekend,
