A Few Little Things To Share

How's it going?? All set for the holidays? I am a wee bit behind this year but slowly crossing things off my to do list.
I thought I would stop by and share a couple lil' things I made and wish everyone a happy holiday!
I made another tag using Sentiment Flags that I thought was worth chatting about. Have a look...

This will go on my cousin's Christmas gift from my mom. She got her these beautiful hand painted pillows from ETSY that I thought was just dying for a tag. So I wrapped the pillows in cello and added the tag. I hope she keeps it. It looks so pretty in person. I love how Sentiment Flags is the perfect size for a gift tag!

Then I made this embellished card front I guess you would call it for this bag of coffee.

I thought it would be fun to put the bag of coffee inside an actual coffee bag but I literally couldn't get near the craft store because the parking lot is just too crazy! So I compromised by making a front for it and used my new goodies from PTI that have been begging for me to use them. This is the Warm Happiness set and coordinating die. I used some felt, baker's twine and buttons to create the focal image along with my Mat Stack 2 die. Then I stamped the bottom portion using a stamp from the set and just turning it about a bit and added the heart stamp from the set too. I don't believe this is an original idea. I do believe I have seen this done. Probably one of the gals from PTI...just thought I'd throw that out there.
This is for my sister-in-law...not for Christmas. It's just a little thank you for really cute Christmas decoration she got for me that I love and this is her favorite coffee. I thought it was a cute idea for a little thank you. It's New England Coffee's Cinnamon Hazlenut by the way and it's FAB.
Anywhoo...have a wonderful holiday, Everyone! I will be back here and there and am looking forward to being able to announce the next release from Lil' Inker and ag designs!! Yippee!!
