Hi everyone....thanks for stopping by!  I'm so excited to be participating in the SOTM Blog's been way to long and I've really missed that special connection we all have with one another :) I can honestly say...I'm unsure where the month of September went...but I'm so welcoming October and some cooler weather for sure.  If you're coming here from Jen Armstrong's Blog you're on the right path...yeah!  October's stamp set is titled "Twinkle" as a reminder that Christmas is right around the corner...and the perfect time to start creating those special gifts for all those wonderful people in your life.  

Here is an up close picture of the stamp set....

I loved creating the background paper using the second generation stamping technique.
 The "Trim the Tree" image is a velum overlay added to colonial white cardstock by using a few drops of liquid glass.

  1. This is such a great idea for gift giving- it looks so inviting and beautiful!

  2. Great project! Love all the layering of the compliments with the embellishments.

  3. What a cute little book box. I love the layers on your "Merry Everything" cricut cut. And all your little embellishments really make this box. I'd have a hard time giving something so cute away.

  4. Glad your back! Great project.

  5. Great box for gift tags. I love how you embellished it.

  6. This is just BEAUTIFUL! What a neat way to store tags and such for the holidays. It can even go onto a bookshelf! Love it - very creative!
