Die-cember and a giveaway!


More Christmas wrapping preparations going on here :) After all it is December now and finally all the Christmas posts seem that little bit more real LOL. This little treat package and tags will be for my youngest to give to his teacher. We will be making some cookies together just before the end of term and popping a couple into this little glassine bag. Then one of the tags will pretty up a little personalised card set I’ve made using Jennifer’s fab post here. The final tag will go on a book. I always like to buy a book for a teacher but I’m running out of ideas! Any suggestions?


Have you seen that Simon Says Stamp are running a fab series on their blog this month: Die-cember! Isn’t that name just awesome and anyone who calls by here often knows how much I like my dies LOL. There’s going to be lots of fun and fabulous inspiration all month long! I thought I’d join in with today with some die cut goodies :)


I whipped up these tags super quick using the gorgeous washi tape from Kelly Purkey. I simply roughly cut a piece of card bigger than my die and laid down strips of washi leaving a little gap here and there for the sentiment from my favourite Christmas set, Holiday Hellos. Then I ran it through my die cutter with one of the Medium Tags.



The treat packet is given more die cut love in the form of the Funky snowflake which was layered over a doily held in place by more washi. Finally the sentiment is white heat embossed onto red card and foam mounted on top :)


Now comes the fun part for you! I have a pack of the washi tapes I used today to give away! The pack contains 8 gorgeous designs and I thought I would split the pack into two and have two lucky winners get four designs each! Leave a comment by Friday 06 December at 11.59pm EST telling me what your favourite part of Christmas is and I will draw two winners on Saturday :)

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp holiday hellos; Dies – Simon Says Stamp medium tag, funky snowflake; Washi – Kelly Purkey; Card – Bazzill wax lips; Inks – Hero Arts red royal, Versamark; Twine – Jillibean Soup bean stalks red/brown; Embossing Powder – Hero Arts white; Glitter card; Doily

    My favorite part of Christmas is the baking and recipes that we keep for JUST this part of the year.

    My favorite part of the holidays is the White Elephant game we play with family. As our family grew, we decided to bring one gift for a set $ amount for that year. It was too overwhelming to buy gifts for each family member. Last year it was 26 not counting our kids!!!ReplyCancel

    These are both gorgeous… no, I’m not the fresh news carrier :).
    What I like the most about Christmas is the family gathered, especially around a table full of healthy gastronomic goods *cough cough*, and what seems to me to be a genuine effort people do to be more tolerant and supportive. I also like the music, lights, giving and receiving, decorate, the holly feeling in the air, cozy sweaters, gifts made or chosen with love, with the particular characteristics of the ones we love in mind… what’s not to love about Christmas? :)ReplyCancel

    My favorite part of Christmas is the heightened sense of sentimentality which extends to watching my beloved sappy Hallmark Channel and Lifetime Christmas movies and getting teary-eyed from them (even when they are over-the-top groan-worthy!). Thank you so much for the chance to win the Kelly Purkey washi (she’s awesome as you are you!).ReplyCancel

  • Janet Trapp - December 6, 2013 - 8:25 pm

    Questi washi sono bellissimi!
    Adoro il Natale, sono credente e per me è un momento significativo dell’anno, ma mi ace anche tutta la parte più esteriore…decorare l’albero con la mia famiglia, preparare il presepe e aprire ogni giorno, tutti insieme, il calendario dell’avvento che ho preparato per loro ;-)ReplyCancel
