Today it’s all about the homemade gifts! We all need a few little “gifts from the heart” this time of year. Whether it’s for your UPS man, your next door neighbours, coworkers, or your child’s teacher, start thinking about which gifts you’d like to make this year to show your appreciation!

Here are some samples for you to get your creative juices flowing:

These little cuties are easy to mass produce if you need several gifts.  It’s easy to cut many stockings at the same time with the stocking die and the Big Shot.  I cut several stockings from Real Red cardstock and Vellum cardstock.  I sewed up the edges, filled them with M&M candies and stapled them shut.  The stamp comes from the set “Tages Til Christmas”.

 

You know I’m all about the chocolate, so here is another nifty way to wrap it up for the holidays:

Here’s a few instructions to help you recreate this little package:

1.  Cut Gumball Green cardstock to 2 3/4″x 5″ .  Score lengthwise at 1/2″, 2 3/4″and 3″.

2.  Fold on all score lines; staple front tab up and adhere chocolate into matchbook.

3.  White cardstock front measures 1 3/4″x 2 1/2″ and DSP pieces measures 1 9/16″x 2 5/16″.  Decorate front cover as desired.  I used the Scentsational Season stamp set and matching framelits as well as the Tiny Tags stamp set.

Have a great weekend!!  TTFN!

This is Week 1 of my 8 week organizational plan and we are Getting Organized this week!

I hope you’ve been able to get your Christmas Holiday Planner in a binder this week and are ready to start planning – here we go!!

If you haven’t purchased the Christmas Holiday Planner  and started your holiday planning, now is a great time to do so!  Click the button on the right to purchase, print off the planner and check back here at Inkingoutofthebox during the next 8 weeks as we get ready for Christmas!

But before we start organizing…here’s a card…to get us in the mood…

I created this card for my annual Christmas Card Class which is this week.  I created 10 different cards for the class and this is just one of my favorites of the bunch!  I used the Snow Festival DSP pack from the Holiday Catalogue for color suggestions and patterns.  I also used the Scentsational Season stamp set and matching framelits along with the new Window Frames Framelit and 2 1/2″ circle punch.

Now, back to our Christmas planning…

One of your tasks this week is to start calendaring your December month (Family Calendar Page of the planner).  Yes, it is only October right now, BUT it’s important to get an idea of how busy the month of December will be for you NOW!

Schedule in things that you know are already happening.  Things like piano or music lessons, sport practices and games, annual parties you attend, evening work shifts, etc.

Then, I want you to start a list of activities/events you want to schedule this year.  Maybe you’d like to host a Christmas Open House for your neighbours and friends or maybe you’d like to host a Gingerbread House party for your children and their friends or cousins.  However long or short, detailed or vague your list is, it’s important to start thinking about your December calendar NOW. 

This activity is going to ensure you fit every activity in that is important to you and your family, as well as prevent you from becoming over committed this December!!  So get out your family calendar and start writing!

TTFN!

Card #3 for stamp club next week.

I wanted a multi-patterned tree for this last card so I cut the tree framelit from the Very Vanilla cardfront and then embossed it using the Woodgrain folder in the Holiday Catalogue.  I then adhered thin pieces of various designer papers onto a small square of cardstock and adhered it behind the tree cutout.  I LOVE the result!!

This is a surprising easy card to make and I can’t wait to have my stamp club girls make it too!

Supplies used:

Stamps – More Merry Messages

Ink & Paper – Be of Good Cheer DSP, Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla

Accessories – Big Shot & Holiday Collection framelits, Woodgrain embossing folder, Dotted Scallop ribbon

TTFN!

Supplies used:

Ink & Paper – Bashful Blue, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
