First post of 2013!!!

First and foremost Happy New Year!!

I am honestly relieved that the holidays are over and before you know it, SPRING will be here!!
Of course... I am saying that while the temperatures here in Virginia are the coldest that they have been in YEARS!! It's FREEZING!!

One thing I love about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that even though it seems it was ages ago since my last post...I have been active (as a demonstrator) and stamping here and there. I just decided to take some time just relax. There is no pressure in sales....or having to hold workshops. I have enjoyed it as my creative outlet, hobby and always will.

I want to share with you a few projects I made for the holidays and gift giving.

Here are some adorable ice skates that can be hung as ornaments on the tree, hung around a bottle of wine or as gift tags. I used them as gift card holders. Click here for a video tutorial.

Note: After watching the video...and using crystal effects as mentioned, I decided it would be WAY easier to attach the fabric first to the card stock using a glue stick and then cut using the Big Shot. You're welcome!! (wink)

Here is another really cute project using wine bottle corks:

Can't remember where I saw this idea originally...probably somewhere on Pinterest. It really isn't that hard...hardest part is having enough corks... (lucky for me I LOVE wine and had plenty!!) I wrapped some silver tinsel ribbon (retired) and added a tag.
Another gift I made was CASED from Elizabeth Price's adorable creation shown here. I ran out to the store immediately to gather supplies as soon as I saw it on her blog....and here is what it started to look like within just minutes:
I was getting SO excited..I ended up making a dozen each in two different sized mason jars. Hardest part was cleaning up the tinsel on the counter from snipping the pipe cleaners...making some more of these cuties for Chistmas 2013!!!

HUGE Stampin' hugs~
I will now be back to posting regularly and sharing my passion of paper crafting. Until then, take care and please feel free to leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions!!
