Snowman Soup kits for the grandkids

Good morning, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day & Boxing Day and got all the pressies you wanted.
I have had a lovely time with all the family and today has been the first day that I have been able to get into my craft room!  I must say I have missed it.
Over the next few days I will be posting some of the projects that kept me busy up until Christmas.
Firstly I would like to show you the "Snowman Soup" packs that I made up for my grandchildren for their Christmas Eve boxes (this was a new one on me, we never had these when I was a child!).  I also made a few for some adults too, which I must say, went down very well.
So..........  I set about looking for a way to display the contents and found that the fabulous acetate boxes were perfect. Inside the children's box was a hot chocolate sachet , a cone shaped bag containing marshmallows, a chocolate spoon and a candy cane.  On the reverse of the pack was a little Snowman Soup poem.
These were the ones  I made for the grandchildren

On the adults packs I placed two packs of hot chocolate sachets, two packs of marsmallows, two choccy spoons and two candy canes.  Perfect.

Here are the two different packs together
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy your day.
Take care

On Stage Swap

Just back home from a lovely weekend away with a lovely bunch of crafters.
We attended the Onstage Stampin'Up! convention with 450(ish) demonstrators held in Solihull, West Midlands.
A very popular thing to do at these conventions is to swap with other demonstrators, so here was my swap which I swapped with 50 other demos (which means I have 50 other works of art in return)!
I used the very very versatile "Lovely As a Tree" stamp set stamped on grey board in black ink and quickly clear embossed them.  I then sponged Night of Navy & Wild Wasabi  ink across the board, then put Dazzling Diamonds (of course there has to be glitter somewhere)  on the trees.

I hope the recipients liked their swap!
Thank you for stopping by today,
Take care

Winter Jar - Hometown Greetings Edgelits

Well the weather has certainly changed hasn't it?  I am freezing today.
Just thought I would share with you one of the projects that the ladies at my all day crafty class enjoyed making.
How very versatile the Hometown Greetings Edgelits really are.  I have seen many many projects using them and this was my take on them.
I  managed to purchase these fabulous little tea light jars which were shouting at me to use with the edgelits.
I die cut the little scenes, covered them with embossing paste and dusted them with glitter.
The biggest challenge was getting the edgelits to stand upright in a round (ish) jar.  All I did was pad the bottom of the jar with cotton wool which forces the card against the jar. Perfect.   
Not all that impressive in the daylight.

Little decoration on the side
Really really impressed at night when the LED light shows the edgelits in all their glory.

We had real fun making this and I believe the ladies were eager to get to the little shop I purchased these from,  to get their own to make some presents for their friends and family!

Don't you just love this time of year
Well, thank you for stopping by today.
Have a great weekend.
Take care
