Ladybug ink. Gift Exchange

We had a small group this year for my annual downline Christmas party, 
but the gifts were all fabulous!!
Since I drew number one, I got to go first and last.  
I can't tell you how hard it was to decide what gift to keep!!  I wanted them all!
From the left: Me, Karen, Michelle, Ruth, Carmelita

This is my project.  It was a framed key holder.  I used the new Burlap and Blooms wreath kit from the upcoming Occasions catalog, available January 3rd!
The kit comes with everything you need to create a stunning wreath, including burlap ribbon, a  wreath form, and die-cut flowers, 

 I decorated my package with some ribbon and flowers from the kit.

This is Karen's.  She decorated electric candles with paper from the Thankful Tablescape kit 
and die-cut snowflakes.  So shimmery and beautiful!  
This was the gift I kept!

This is Michelle's fun package.
And this is Michelle's gift.  
It's a fabulous lapboard she Mod Pogged with Soho Subway DSP.
This is the beautiful box Ruth's gift came in....
...and the adorable penguin ornaments that were inside.  
Ruth made these using our Simply Pressed Clay.
Ruth is so sweet to also bring my daughters a gift for the exchange.
These are the cute boxes she wrapped them in.
And these are the sweet little snowman ornaments that were inside!

This is Carmelita's gorgeous wreath!
She accented it using the Festive Flurry ornament kit and the Christmas Banner Accessory Kit.

I also had to show you this beautiful card Karen made.  Every bit of it shimmers!

Christmas Stamp-a-stack

 I promised you more pictures of my Christmas Stamp-a-stack.
This little tree was so easy to make using the Petite Pennants Punch (122361).

This card was cased from Mary Fish.  It uses the Note Cards & Envelopes (131527), Mosaic Punch (131267) and Very Merry Tags stamp set (130393).

I cased this card from my downline Cassie.  It was a favorite at our Shoebox swap.  
Most of us cased this card for our classes!
It uses O Holy Night stamps (131832), Season of Style DSP Stack (132181
and Baked Brown Sugar Ruffle Stretch ribbon (130022).

This card uses the fabulous Winter Frost DSP (132341) and Stylish Stripes embossing folder (132174).  You can't tell from the picture that the DSP is foil-accented.  So pretty!

I cased this from Diana Gibbs.  The photo doesn't do it justice.  It's so pretty and simple and uses the single stamp Christmas Star (134813).

The bonus project turned out so pretty!  It uses the canvas banner and stencil from the Build a Banner kit (133507).  I attached one of the fabulous snow flake ornaments from the Festive Flurry Ornament kit (135813), only available while supplies last!

Many of these items are from the Holiday Catalog and are only available until January 2nd!!
Get them while you can!
