This is a gift bag we made at November's club meeting. It's pretty simple, obviously, but it's a great way to use Designer Series Paper you might otherwise hoard! We used the Holly Berry Bouquet paper, Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin ribbon, and the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set.

This is a club technique card using Epsom salts. I know what you're thinking. lol But isn't it cool? Dissolve 1 cup of Epsom salts in 1 cup of boiling water. Paint on cardstock with a paint brush. Ta da! Be very sure your containers and brushes are clean before you use them, otherwise, the technique may not work. I love the Frosted Window look, and it was extremely easy to do!

I sort of took November off from blogging. Not sure very many read this blog anyway, so probably no one noticed! lol It was a crazy time, but I'm going to do a little better in December, I believe.

This was my club swap for November's hostess club. I used the Stocking Accents die to cut the trees, then textured them with the Big Shot and the Snowburst Embossing Folder. A little bit of Dazzling Details makes them stand out even more. The background is Designer Paper from the Holly Berry Bouquet series. It's been textured with the Stripes Folder, though it's hard to see in this photo. Quilted Satin Cherry Cobbler Ribbon and a Holly Berry Button complete the project.

How is your December going?
