Here's a little project I made to kick off the Holiday Season.  I bought the foam tree from the Dollar Store and cut 3 sheets of DSP in 1 x 3 1/2 strips, curled the ends with a pencil and hot glued on.   The Topper is In Color Ribbon, also hot glued on.  This is a very simple project (I have never tried this before and have seen these at Craft Fairs anywhere from $5 - $20). It took me about an hour to complete after cutting and curling the ribbon.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.   I hope you had a wonderful day full of friends, family, and lots of food.

Sale-a Bration

Now that I'm over the flu and able to get back in the swing of things,   I just checked the mail and GUESS what was in it???   My Sale-a-bration and Spring Catalog!!!!!     YEAH!!!!!!!!  
Can't wait for the link to go live to share all the NEW & EXCITING things Stampin' Up! is coming out DSP, embellishments, and kits GALORE!!!!   I have my eye on a few things
 and I think I just might have to ask Santa
to bring me EVERYTHING in the Catalogs for Christmas so I can get to work on lots of wonderful projects for my Sale- a Bration Open House. 
 Paper and Ribbon are a few of my favorite things- but everything tops the list this year. 
So,  as I sit here and drool over these catalogs and try to make my list, I probably should finish a few things for the craft fair at the end of the month before I get more behind.
 Happy Stamping!!!

My Digital Studio- Labels

Happy Monday Everyone!  Today's post features labels I made using My Digital Studio 2 and 3M full sheet labels.   It took me about 5 minutes to make the lid and jar label and about 10 minutes to make the Hershey kiss labels ( I had to print twice to ensure the images would fit in the 3/4" punch). Overall, it was super easy and I was able to get 12 jars filled and labeled in about an hour and a half.    I found the "Elf Kisses" idea on Google and then on Pinterest. 
My preschool will be reading Elf on a Shelf and I thought this would be a good incentive for them, not including the craft and hobby fair I will be participating in.   
Supplies Needed: My Digital Studio 2
jolly bingo bits, joyful times digital designer series paper
digital decorative label ( I enlarged to 3 1/2 x 2)
3M adhesive sheets
3/4" circle punch
