A little gift for someone special!

Mary from Cardztv (her blinky is on the sidebar) had a great video last week on doing the "matchcover" for a packet of hot chocolate.  Here's the link:

Mary is a fabulous person and she always has the greatest ideas.  I loved this and it is a total scraplift from her.  The only thing I did different was I used a "cup" from the Yummy cartridge and printed with my Imagine.  I watched the video again tonight to get the measurements and this was a quick and simple project.  It turned out so cute, I'm making these again this weekend when my grandsons come for a crafting and baking weekend.

The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper collection.  I have used this set over and over again.  It was a great investment.  Go to to see all her wonderful products.

I am giving these to my staff tomorrow and I can't wait!  I get very excited to give them cute things!

Make your gift standout!

I've been following My Creative Time and her 12 days of Christmas and have gotten some wonderful ideas for decorating and gift ideas.  Here is my version of her packaging some bubbly and sparkling cider that I'll be giving this Christmas.  This is such an easy project and if you go to Emma's website you will be able to see her video on how to create you own version too!  I have so many more things I want to try but am really lacking time this weekend.  The rest of my day is full and tomorrow is full too.  I love this time of year but always run out of time to create my goodies!

Enjoy!  I pray you and your family is having a blessed holiday season so far!
