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!

I used some fun plaid paper from Lawn Fawn. The solid cardstock is from Stampin’ Up. I made three holders using traditional white,red, and green. I tied the little holders closed with some fun twine by Lawn Fawn. Here’s a closeup of the holders.

I finished decorating the front of my holders using a fun little stamp set from My Creative Time. I also used a scallop circle die and circle punch to cut them out. These were super quick and easy to create. My inspiration of this project came from Angie at mychicnscratch.com

You could use this little holder for a piece of pretty jewelry and close it with a magnet. How fun would that be! Have a great weekend and I hope you join the fun at PDE Linky Party!

I used a really cute svg file from Lori Whitlock to create the cocoa cup. I wanted to use some of the beautiful Prima Sweet Peppermint papers to decorate the outside. Here’s a closeup of the front.

I used some of the chipboard elements and flowers from the collection to decorate the front. I wanted to add a cute little tag to the cup handle so I used a fun little stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn called Tiny Tags. I die cut the tag from some silver glitter paper and added one of the Prima crystals on the front. I tied the tag onto the handle with some ivory twine.

This little project would be fun to use for Snowman Soup treats. This is a really fun project to make. I hope you join us over at PDE Linky Party. Have a great weekend!
