Spreading Christmas Joy

I saw these cute little lunch box tins at Dollar Tree the other day and I knew they would make perfect teacher gifts. Each tin has 4 3x3 Note Cards, Nugget Box and 30 gift tags. The colors on the tin were kinda hard to match with current SU designer papers, but I found a retired Scrappin' kit "Winter Bright" that worked perfect. I'm always excited about this, as I can use up some stuff I have on hand instead of always needing something new. I did purchase the new Ornament Punch and coordinating Delightful Decorations Stamp set for these tins, which I love. The stamp set and punch can still be purchased through January 4th out of the Holiday Mini Catalog, if you are interested. Now, I just wish I purchased more tins....

Stamp Sets: Delightful Decorations (Holiday Mini), Perfect Presentation (Retired Hostess) Scrappin' Kit: Winter Bright Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (Retired) and Pretty in Pink. Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Basic Black and Wild Wasabi (Retired) Accessories: SU Silver Ribbon (Retired), Ornament, Snowflake and Small Circle Punch, Rhinestone & Bold Brights Brads, Nugget Box Sizzix Template, Wide Red Ribbon, Cello Bags, Non SU Cuttlebug Snowflake Emboss Die and Lunch Box Tin.

Support our Troops

This time of year it is more important then ever to support our troops and their families as they are separated this holiday season. My three little elves made up a care package for my Uncle, Col. R Fode who is stationed in Kosovo. They had fun making hand made cards, ornaments and goodies....we included a small Christmas tree, candy canes and a snowman photo frame. For an added touch I covered peppermint patties with one of my favorite, now retired Hostess stamp set "Deer Friends." If you know me, I have to stamp something!!! I hope it adds a little Christmas cheer to his deployment!

I have many fun Holiday projects I'll be posting in the days to come that I have been working on. Things have been crazy here so things are not getting posted as fast as I would like. Happy Holidays!
