Last weekend I held my Christmas Party to thank my very loyal customers and friends who support my classes at home and purchase from my store. It is always lovely to be able to spend time with these ladies and celebrate another successful year. I like to give them some gifts which I have made for them to show my appreciation.
I buy blank bags and decorate them all the same. This year I stamped the greeting from the Greetings From Santa stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink. I embossed the stamped card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed card to Early Espresso card and then the bag front. I created a little tag which has a little panel of Whisper White card embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, attached to Early Espresso card. I punched the top of the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The “to” stamped in Early Espresso comes from the Crazy About You stamp set. I stamped the christmas tree from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink, cut them out and attached them to the tag. I tied the tags to the bag using Stitched Satin Ribbon, some Real Red, some Very Vanilla. The bags were filled with homemade goodies, Peppermint Body scrub, Italian Herb Mix, Rocky Road and a Chocolate slider. As well as these goodies, I made a set of four birthday notecards in a little cover. I will pop back soon with the instructions for the notecards.
We had a wonderful day and I believe everyone enjoyed themselves. I look forward to catching up with all of these lovely ladies again in the New Year.
Bye for now,
