Bucket Load of Christmas Cheer and some freebies!


Exams are finally over... WOOT WOOT!!!!!

We were invited to lunch today and this is what I took for the hostess.

FREEBIE: right click on the image above and select save image create your own tag like mine.


OK - it wasn't empty. Inside I placed the following goodies.

1. A bottle of wine for the host. Wine bottle sports a Christmassy Waistcoat.

2. For the hostess a set of Christmas Angel food picks (didn't take a pic), an angel bookmark in a "tree" box shown in a previous post.

3. For the kids.
    Instant snow (yes - we don't get the real stuff here!)

    Hair clips

     Candy Canes: these and the ones from this post.

And bags of "reindeer food". I cut the reindeer head from craft foam and gave him some pipe cleaner antlers. The reindeer head detaches and is a tree ornament- hence the string hanging in his face.

FREEBIE: Just right click on each of the images below and select save image as to use them on your own projects.

I attached these to the bag of reindeer food (oats and colored coarse salt) inside the above reindeer food bag.


 And the full bucket looked like this.........

I cheated on some of the tags and used clip art from Digiscrapkits (PS they are having a huge sale at the moment), for the others I used Dustin Pike digital stamp images, colored with copics. I also used my scallop and circle punches as well as my labels 1 spellbinder die.

Have been working on a of Christmas gifts which I will post as I finish them off. Some involve sewing- which I am VERY new at and A LOT of felt projects  (I AM LOVING FELT).

Happy Crafting

Uh Oh- Whose that coming down the chimney!!! ; O


Up to my eyeballs studying for exams right now, so will keep this short. Boots are a cut file from Whimsy Doodles -> find them here.

Couldn't resist doing this with the santa boots I downloaded, I still have some other ideas for a card and somethimg else to go with this, but its going to have to wait.



I used My Timeless Template For Keepsakes purchased here. I did cut it down a bit as the chimney was a bit too long. I created the tag using word art. and the snow is textured paint.

Thanks for looking.
