Echo Park “I Love Winter” Cocoa Pouch

Echo Park “I Love Winter” Cocoa Pouch

Hello everyone! It’s Friday so that means it’s time for another challenge over at PDE Linky Party! This will be the last challenge for 2016. The challenge this week is “Anything Goes!”. I decided to create a little cocoa pouch using some fun papers from Echo Park’s I Love Winter collection by Lori Whitlock.

I used some fun doily dies, scallop circle dies, and circle punches to create several layers to add to the center of the pouch. The pouch is a die cut also.

The cute little mittens were from a border strip off of the design paper that I cut out with a circle punch. I used snowflake punch to add some glittery snowflakes and added a little red bling to the centers. I decided the little mittens needed some sparkle as well!

There you have it! I added some yummy cocoa and a peppermint stick to the inside of the pouch and tied it off with some pretty ribbon. Make sure you join the fun at PDE Linky Party! Have a great New Year!

Graphic 45 St. Nicholas NOEL Banner

Graphic 45 St. Nicholas NOEL Banner

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a fun banner that I created using Graphic 45 St. Nicholas collection. I used a combination of the 12×12 and 6×6 papers to create my banner. I used the fun ATC alpha tags from Graphic 45 as well to spell out the word NOEL.

I wanted the banner to hold some little envelopes and other bits so I used a fun treat sleeve die from My Creative Time. I only had kraft ATC Alpha tags so I used my Copic wide marker and colored the tags black. I backed them with some gold glitter cardstock so the letters would be nice and sparkly!

I used some beautiful Prima flowers and leaves to decorate the front and tuck inside the sleeves. I die cut some doilies using my favorite go to doily dies from My Creative Time to layer behind the tags.

I used a fun little Prima postcard stamp and added a few little postcards as well. The fun little envelopes were die cut from an envelope die by My Favorite Things called You’ve Got Mail.

That’s my festive sparkly little Christmas banner. I hope you like it! Have a great day!
