A couple of weeks ago wrote about these these little packets, since then I have had several requests for the ‘recipe’. Well there is probably a whole bunch of videos on the internet on how to make these but rather than trawl thru and post a link, I decided to make a video myself but in the video I used a Christmas theme.
The new 2014 ~ 2015 Stampin’ Up! catalog brought a new selection of ribbons and embellishments. Each year I host a ‘share’ which I call ‘Buttons and Bows”- which runs over 4 months. Last month I shared Septembers selection of goodies and I thought I would share those for this month!
This is the time of the year when lots of thank you cards are needed. Inspired by a post by ‘POOTLES’ I spent yesterday making these using up the remainder of the Season of Style DSP from Stampin’ Up’ I know these are in traditional Christmas colours but as they are thank you’s for Christmas gifts I think they are the perfect colours!

Welcome to the 4th in my series on Punch Art embellishments……… this time I have made a video!!!
I shall be using this on a layout for my Scrap Camp next month, but it will work perfectly for a card front for next Christmas or with a change of colors to, say, pink, it will also make a ‘princess’ for a birthday card front.

This time of year we are wrapping gifts in preparation for the Big Day. I gave up wrapping in paper several years ago…. the shapes were too weird to wrap neatly or the parcels looked too lumpy and unappetising!. I started to use gift bags and tissue paper, a much quicker and easier (and neater!) solution.
Gift bags and tissue can be expensive so I buy plain bags from the craft stores and plain tissue from the dollar store ( 40 sheets for $1) Then I get out my inks and stamp sets and decorate to my hearts’ content.
I have a number of hostess gifts this year so this is the bag/tissue combination I have been working on today…..
The stamp set is Joyful Christmas and I used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Crushed Curry inks. Now I have some lovely, elegant gifts to take with me.
I hope this gives you an idea for your future gift wrapping……..
Happy Stamping ~ Cindy 🙂
