Happy Holidays!

This truly is the best time of year. A time when we reflect on the past year, look forward at what is to come, and make time by showing those we love that they truly are the most cherished to us.

I am so thankful for so many reasons. First and foremost I am thankful for the love, health, and happiness of my children, husband, mother, our family, and friends (near & far). I can say that and really mean it as I’ve been through many times where the people most dear to me weren’t blessed with their health. I know firsthand no one is guaranteed tomorrow, and each day with a loved one truly is a gift, not a guarantee. By the grace of God I can still spend time with my loved ones, and have been shown how precious time and life is. I appreciate that daily.

I’m also thankful for our home, that I get to raise our children in, and that I get to spend every moment I want to with them, as I “work” by sharing what I love doing with the world.

I’m thankful for every opportunity I have ever been blessed with, and all the people who have supported me along my journey, including my design team past/present, loyal customers, blog readers and cyber friends too. Many of you have followed me from the beginning of my paper crafting endeavours and I appreciate that immensely. As the new year approaches I have much I will share over time as I continue to evolve in this industry and share what I love with you all.

As we approach this holiday season I want to wish you and yours a wonderful year of love, health, happiness and dreams come true.

That being said this release is being kept “light” so that myself and my design team has more time to focus on and enjoy their time with their families, and not be bogged down with blog posts and assignments. Our January release will also take place a week later than usual, peeks beginning Jan. 6th to once again allow them family time during the holiday season.

So without further delay let me start with the a preview at tomorrows release (with more to come tomorrow)

    This fun gift box is the perfect holder for the perfect gift!

    Note: Inside I chose to use the Money Well Spent ©set to cover my gift card.

    Gift cards are becoming more and more popular. Who doesn’t love a guilt free shopping spree, or the opportunity to pick out something  truly loved/wanted without the cost?

    Just insert any gift card into the slot, and you have the perfect presentation, every time!

    With gift card giving on the rise the search for fun new ways to package them continues! Well now you can “insert card here”! The box insert perfectly holds all gift cards making it the perfect package!

    This is the plain, ole insert option. Maybe you want  a cute lil’ box? Just don’t insert the gift card holder, and you have an even cuter gift box for cash, jewelry, candy, mini soaps…or whatever else you can dream up!

    Perfect for the holidays, birthdays or ANY day!

    Be sure you check out the Money Well Spent set   for even more gift giving possibilities!

     You can keep the design super simple too!

    Make it look like a LEGO by just adding some circles, on dimensionals to the top!

    So many boys love LEGO’s! In fact we gave this to one of Noah’s friends for his birthday, with a gift card to Toys R’ Us, so he can pick out his own favorite LEGO gift, hassel free.

    Just open the gift box to reveal your gift card! Kids LOVE IT! And the shape will throw anyone off as to what you may actually have inside!

    I kept the inside simple. I used the SK8R Boy © set, with the Money Well Spent © set, so I could add the amount on the gift card.

    Fun, easy and for a ONE TIME purchase you can make as many as you want/need, and customize them for every occasion.

    Now you may be wondering about more the details of that bow on the first project!

    Bow-Tied $2.50

    This is the ultimate bow made of paper! If you like the Abra-bow-dabra Cut File you will love this.

    Make the perfect bow time and time again. No more wasting ribbon or hunting for that perfect color or pattern to suit your project needs because now you can make your own time and time again.

    Resize it to suit your gift giving needs.

    This is the perfect bow atop any Pretty Packaging Template, or add it to a three dimensional item like a centerpiece, wreath or Christmas Tree. Endless uses, endless possibilities.
