Angels All Around

Happy Sunday Friends,

What a busy and incredible weekend.  Yesterday I spent the day at the craft fair at my school.  It was just terrific.  We had 40 vendors/crafters this year and lots of shoppers.  Since I was in charge of organizing it, I'm thrilled that everyone seemed to have a great time.  WHEW! 

Today I had even more fun with my Inkerbelles Stampin' Team.  I am SO blessed by each and every one of them.  I had invited them to join me today for the "Holiday Hoopla" here at my house.  It was a fun time for me to spoil them a little and for our team to kick off the holiday season.  I created five projects that are perfect for quick gifts including ornaments and treat holders.  I'm going to be sharing them with you here on the blog.

The first one that I'm sharing today is a sweet angel ornament made using the Bigz Bow Die for the Big Shot.
I have photos of two different ones.  One of them has the images stamped in the NEW Gold Metallic Ink and is then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  You can see the difference for yourself.


Aren't they sweet?  I love them and especially how quick they are to create.  They would make a great gift tag to add to a special gift.  The top angel is made using Midnight Muse Cardstock and the bottom one is made with Cherry Cobbler Cardstock with the Gold Metallic Ink.  The banner is made from Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I punched a separate 1 1/4" circle out of the Champagne Glimmer Paper for the halos.  The ribbon hanger and bow are made with Very Vanilla Seam Binding.  

These would be terrific to create with your family when they come to visit during the holidays.  I think they'd be perfect for Girl Scout troops and kids at school too.  Just think....you can get TWO angels from ONE piece of cardstock.  That's an inexpensive yet impressive gift if you ask me.  :-)

All of the supplies can be found at my Online Store.  
You won't have to stand in lines with grumpy shoppers or even get out of your pjs.

I'd love to see what you're making this holiday season.  Please email me photos of your projects and I'll be posting them in the coming weeks.

Here's a peek at one of the fun treats I had for the Inkerbelles today...a HOT COCOA BAR!

Believe me....we needed something to warm us up today.  
It is COLD outside.  Brrrrrr!

Wishing you a magical Monday,
