Clear Dollar Stamps December Sneak Peek

2nd post for today - keep on scrolling, keep on scrolling, keep on scrolling (in my best Dori singing voice) - Finding Nemo

Ok, my sneak peek for today is a little bit different than the usual format, but pretty fun to do. We were all asked to create a gift ensemble with the stamps that we were given. I used 2 stamp sets called Gumdrops and Lollipops and Treats for my Sweet. I chose a different color scheme and to be honest I'm not sure if I really like it. I will say that it does look nice all together though.

Here's a run down of all the things that I made. The gift bag is super simple and I have to say that I love taking a plain gift bag and jazzing it up with my own stamps and paper. Can anything get any easier than that?

I then made a tag. Its really nice to have some spare gift tags around that you can quickly attach to any gift that you get for somebody.

And of course a matching card for any of the other items that I made. I also made one of those pizza boxes - you can find a template -->HERE<--. The box houses a handful of thank you notes that I made and finally, I made a small candy holder with a gift card holder attached. My goal was to make something that you could hang on a tree. Gift cards are wonderful gifts, but they are a pain to wrap. They tend to get lost in the shuffle of other "bigger" gifts. And I thought it would be fun to give a space to add a little something whether its just a bit of candy or another small gift.

I hope you enjoyed today's preview. Make sure you check out the other Design Team members' blogs (on the sidebar) throughout the weekend. All new stamps will be available first thing on December 1st -->HERE<--
