Happy Christmas Eve everyone! This will be my last project for the Butterfly Reflections Design Team :(. It's been so much fun to share my projects on this blog. For my final assignment, I actually created a few projects for a little hostess-with-the-mostess wow factor! I will be hosting Christmas Eve at our house again this year and I wanted to jazz up my party a little bit with some handmade items.
I usually have a coffee and cocoa station all set up for anyone that would like a hot beverage. I created a little sign for my station and used the "&" from the Gossamer Blue Get Happy Wood Veneer set. This year, to hold the cocoa packages, I used a mason jar. I glued some of the snow flakes from the collection on the lid. Since its glass and self explanatory, I just used some Christmas paper and the stamp set Fa La La from Kaisercraft, I just love that Elf quote!
Last year I had the fire pit going on my patio and a few people were enjoying the pit but it was a little too cold for others, YES, we live in Florida but we are not used to cold weather :) So this year, I bought a cute little linen basket with handles and I want to put some warm fleece blankets in it for people to take outside with them. I wish I had thought up some cute poem to put on the label about why there is a basket of blankets but I'm not that clever and I think my family will get it. The label just says blankets. LOL. But the beautiful part about this label is the silver glitter reindeer wood veneer, also from the Gossamer Blue Get Happy Wood Veneer set. I just put some Tombo Mono glue on it (This glue is my arch enemy, irritating me with its sticky web all over my fingertips and nails ugh!!-BUT it works oh so good when it sticks to what it is supposed to!) and sprinkled some silver glitter on top. It is so pretty. The label doesn't need anything else to take away from the glittery reindeer.
I also have Christmas containers on hand for my family to take home leftovers. This is really nice because it helps me clean up a bit of the food and there's not so much in my fridge afterwards. For the containers this year, I made labels with everyone's names on them and some double sided tape to stick on each container. On the labels, I used the Technique Tuesday Holiday Flair stamp set. It makes the labels a little more festive!
I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you! Thanks Vanessa and team for letting me be on the Design Team! Happy holidays everyone!

Who doesn't love a gift card to their favorite store??!! This week I made 3 gift tags that hold gift cards. These are so cute to hang from the tree or attach to a package.
I made two pretty colorful and busy ones and then I thought, I should make a toned down one as well….I think I was having too much fun and didn't want to stop!! :)
For this one, I used some Paper Trey Ink card stock in kraft. I stamped versamark for the background tag. Then I just added some of the die cuts on the front.
I love the font of this stamp set, a little sentiment at the bottom of the tag is so cute.
As you can see, the gift card fits perfectly. This is a Michael's gift card for my mom…ssshhhh!! Don't tell!

My favorite holiday movie hands down is ELF! I think that movie is so sweet and innocent and just makes me smile. I watch that movie every year and I love it more every time. When I was looking through the new Project Life Merry & Bright collection, I saw a card that read "Favorite Christmas Movies" so I was inspired to make 3 cards all about my favorite holiday movie!
In general, I love quoting movies….but ELF is the best for quotes! The Kaisercraft Fa La La stamp is the best quote of all!! It's so true! :) What exactly IS a cotton headed ninny muggins???!!! :)
The snowflake clusters are from Hero Arts Screen Shots 6x4 stamp set. I also used the Gossamer Blue Get Happy wood veneers, Fancy Pants Oh Deer! sequins and Home for Christmas Candy Cane Thickers.
What's YOUR favorite holiday movie? Will YOU be including a card in your PL or December Daily? I think it will be fun to look back years from now and remember how much I loved this movie!

I decided this year to make an October Daily since the month of October is so busy for my family with decorating, deciding on and making costumes, planning, and everything else that goes on to make our annual halloween house a success. I am loving how it is turning out! Here is my day 1 card:
The Frankie & Friends Decorative Brads are so so cute and create a little extra dimension for the layout.
Frankie & Friends has been my favorite Halloween collection this year!!! I love the colors and the cute little images and sayings. This beware beware tab will stick out of the pocket for my interest and the arrow was perfect for that photo! I love stars on all my layouts, I loved these Halloween colored enamel stars from Jillibean Soup.

My mother in law hosts Thanksgiving every year and I thought this year I would make her a hostess gift. I saw these cute little chalkboard easels at Michaels and knew that would be perfect!
I decorated the chalkboard menu with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves Lawn Cuts and the Lawn Fawn Turkey Day stamp set. I also used Zing! embossing powder in Aqua and Apricot.
At the top of the easel, I put the Bistro Chalk Marker. It fits perfectly right there without rolling off and without being visible from the front. She will be able to write her menu and make any additions or changes as the day goes on, as people bring in dishes or as some dishes get eaten!
Thanks for stopping by!
It's November!! Since I celebrate Halloween so BIG, to me, fall doesn't start until November! November makes me think of Thanksgiving and all the fun fall colors that go along with it. I recently went to Bath & Body Works to pick up some festive anti bacterial soaps for a YouTube friend. I chose all the newest fall theme soaps. The girl at the counter gave me a clear gift bag, a blue Bath & Body Works ribbon and a blue gift tag to wrap them up. Although it's really nice to get the free gift bag and tag, it didn't match my anti bacterial soaps…and I just couldn't have that!!
I used the new Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die set to make some fun confetti for inside of the bag. Since my YouTube friend is a scrapbooker too, I thought the die cuts were a cute little additional gift that she could reuse.
I glued three of the different leaves together to make a really cute coordinating gift tag. To finish the gift bag off, I tied the tag with some orange baker's twine. This is such an easy way to make a small gift just a little cuter. I think it looks so much better than the blue freebies from Bath & Body Works!! I love themed gifts, no matter how big or how small!
I love using G's all over my home for decor since I've gotten married, it's the initial of my new last name! :) So I wanted to have a 'G' decoration in my Halloween stash! I bought a galvanized G and a little cute black felt witch hat from Michael's. Then I took some super cute Frankie & Friends bits and pieces and the Frankie & Friends enamel dots to make it fun!
This Halloween 'G' looks so cute on my bookcase with all my other Halloween decorations!! A really fun addition! What a great way to use up those die cut pieces!!
