My Christmas Gift

Brad bought me this Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas. What a surprise! I love this mixer. I've always wanted a nice mixer and I can't wait to make lots of cookies and cakes with it.

More tags...

This tag was made for a coffee gift. I use the 'Espress yourself' stamp set. I took a tan tag and stamped it with the coffee beans in chocolate chip and then lightly inked the tag in the same color to make it match. The mug is stamped on very vanilla and colored with close to cocoa, riding hood red, and old olive.

This is what the finished gift looked like, with 3 samples of coffee, which I found at Target in the dollar bins!!!

Christmas tags

I made several gift packages this year...
This is a tag I made for a beer pilsener gift. I used a tan tag, which I stamped 'seeing spots' in chocolate chip in, then sponged the tag with more mustard and summer fun. The beer mugs came from 'cheers to you' and were colored with summer sun ink. I used 3d fabric scribble paint for the froth on top.
This is the finish product, 3 pilseners and peanuts and beef sticks. I used a plastic basket bag and heat shrunk it! It turned out very nice!

Can't forget the dogs

These containers I altered for dog treats. I used crystal light containers and covered them with dog themed papers and ribbons. I had these cute dog bone tags that I used to put the dogs name on it. They were filled with dog biscuits!
