Happy Holidays...

Hi Everyone...it's Friday...this old crafty girl's birthday and when you're away from home...what better to celebrate than spending the day in the company of lovely crafty folks and no doubt I'll be raising a glass or two tonight with my fabulous fun Fiskars buddies...
But back to the crafty stuff...I'm sharing my DT project for this month's challenge over at Inspiration Journal...
HAPPY HOLIDAYS
Holiday Cards...Gift and Wrapping Ideas
why not create your very own Christmas wrapping paper with Avery Elle Stamps and Dies and a pack of  "cheap as chips" brown paper parcel wrap from the supermarket
 stamping with Versamark and Heat Embossing with White Embossing Powder...
stamping again with Versamark and the smallest snowflake with Ranger Archival Forget-Me-Not...
and once the box was wrapped...decorating with die cut snowflakes...a tag and gorgeous sparkly wired Christmas ribbon...a huge roll bought many years ago from Costco...
I have a huge collection of snowflake dies in the cubbyhole but I am very impressed with the quality of these dies from Avery Elle...they are an absolute dream to work with...despite being very intricate and detailed...they die cut beautifully every time through 300gsm cardstock...
and with the help of my cubbyhole must-have Stick It...they were a dream to stick down...
We would love to see you joining in the "Happy Holidays" challenge over at Inspiration Journal with the chance to win a fabulous 50 Emporium dollars to spend at Inspiration Emporium and remember if you decide to hop over for a little bit of shopping...use my code "allthatglitter" at checkout to receive a 10% discount off your order.  Shipping costs are cool too...$5 to the US and $10 International.

Hugs Kath xxx
