Holiday Treasures

I just received my latest SU order and in it was the DP "Holiday Treasures".  It is gorgeous, and although I got several packages of DP this time around, I ripped into this one first so I could play and make some easy Christmas cards.  Since SU has an upcoming promotion with rub-ons, I also wanted to showcase them as well!

So here are "three easy pieces":

Holiday Treasures 1

Holiday Treasures 3

  •  Stamps:  Many Merry Messages, Best Yet, Say it With Scallops, Holiday Blitz
  • Paper:  Confetti White, Riding Hood Red, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Holiday Treasures DP, Haiku DP
  • Acc:  Glitter, Scallop Square Punch, Circle Punches, Old St Nick Rub-ons, Rhinestone Brad, Grosgrain ribbon

And finally, this is an old favorite.  I am sure everyone has seen the hot chocolate holders made from an envelope.  Here is my newest one featuring Mr. Twigster:

Mr Twigster Cocoa Packet

If you're not familiar with this, just seal an envelope (this is a SU Whisper White one); decorate as you wish.  Fold it in half crosswise and cut apart; crimp one side and decorate the other.  The hot cocoa packet (folded to fit) will slide into the crimped envelope; the outer piece will slide over top.  Add a ribbon and you're good to go!  Makes a sweet little gift for a teacher or coworker.

  • Stamps:  Mr Twigster, Jumbo Snowflake Wheel, Best Wishes & More
  • Paper:  WW, Frosty Day DP
  • Ink:  Stazon, Tangerine Tango, Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue Cartridge
  • Acc:  Glitter, Crimper, Gingham Ribbon, Med WW Envelope, Blender Pen, Hot Cocoa package

Thanks for visiting!!!
