Christmas Is Coming, The Geese are Getting.......

Well, hi there! Christmas spirit is in full swing it seems, both in the retail form and in stamping and papercrafting. This little gem is Lauren Meader's new template Carry It. It makes a very nice size box for giving a small gift, cookies, chocolates, gift cards, bath items, and whatever else you can think of. I used a very pale aqua blue, seems to be around everywhere this year. It's sort of a robin's egg color. The flower is made with crinoline with some stickles to highlight and the leaves are a Sizzix die cut with metallic paper. The label is also from Lauren and it's called Secret Surprise label and it is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. I made one layer of off white edged in Baja Breeze, another layer from DP, and yet another layer cut with Nestabilities Nine with a stamped sentiment from SU's Holiday Best stamped in Baja Breeze. A little white and silver ribbon to give it the feel of a wrapped gift.....done! The box is approximately 4 x 3 x 5 not counting the label and can be cut with the Cricut or by hand. See you again soon with another version.

Tell me my friend, Mary, what do you do with all of these beautiful creations?
Hugs with hopes that the foot is healed!
