Merry Christmas!

Here is a little 2-4-6-8 box I made to hold a small gift for my sister. It gets its name from the measurements at which it is scored. There are clear instructions from the talented Jan Tink for how to make it here.

Wishing you the peace and warmth of Christmas wherever you are tonight!

Snowed in!

It's definitely looking like it will be a white Christmas around here! Actually, I heard on the radio yesterday that there have only been eight white Christmases in the last 71 years in the metro Vancouver area. Hard to believe! As I am typing this, the snow is continuing to come down harder and harder outside. The forecasters are calling for another 15 cm by the end of the day. This is what it looked like outside two days ago, when there was already quite the accumulation:

...and this is what it looks like today:

The backyard:

Look at the pile of snow on the roof of the birdhouse!:

...and of course, the Paper Cottage:

All this snow means I am contentedly cozied up inside, making cards. Here is a card I made for my cousin Rex, whose birthday we are celebrating tonight, if we are not completely snowed in. I tried to make it not too girly.
Here are a few more holiday cards I made using SU's Ski Slope DSP and the little felt flurries. These were inspired by Andrea Walford's designs. Love the warm, fuzzy look and feel of those felt flurries!

Christmas Treats

Here's a peek at some little treats I made for my coworkers. They look like a matchbook on the outside...

...and hold a Ghirardelli chocolate square on the inside. Sweet and simple, and I love how this idea can be adapted for use as party favours, Valentine's treats, etc.

I received this adorable, yummy bag of sugared pecans from my talented coworker, Cathy. She used the tiny leaf/pinecone image from "Lovely as a Tree" and coloured it to make it look like holly. Clever!

Some bling for a bride-to-be...

Hello! It's been a while since I've posted. I can't believe it's already DECEMBER and Christmas is just a few short weeks away! I'll be having a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack this Sunday from 1 - 4 pm, and it's sure to be lots of fun! There are still a few spots available - let me know if you're interested.

I made this card tonight for a colleague who just got engaged. I'm so excited for her; she is going to make a stunning bride. I layered two images from the "Say It With Scallops" set; Stampin' Up designs an exclusive set each year to help raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities, and this is it. I've had the little bling in my stash for ages. I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow!
