It's been busy around here.. over the past few weeks, I decorated, stuffed and mailed 300+ gold striped bags with 600 die cut Christmas trees, 300 metallic doilies and 300 foil snowflakes for my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and filled them with a personalized bone folders as my Christmas gift to each of them!
I decided to work on the coffee table in the living room so I could enjoy the Christmas tree and all the trimmings while I worked.
I thought I had die cut enough trees, but ended up going back to the Big Shot many times to cut more trees! 600+ trees is a LOT!! I used the tree in the Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh thinlit set and the Naturally Eclectic and Coffee Break packs of designer paper, mixing and matching the trees on each package.
Debbie Adams of Advanced Custom Embroidery & Graphics in NY engraved the Stampin' Up! bone folders for me. She was terrific to work with and if you need any personalized gifts, I'd highly recommend her!
I layered a metallic doily and a foil snowflake, gold on silver, or silver on gold, for a little extra bling behind the stamped die cut circle.
The gold striped bags are so pretty and especially festive for the holidays! Find them on page 195 in the annual catalog or here online.
I was celebrating each little step along the way.. like 300+ stamped, die cut circles... :)
I printed a greeting through Vista Print for each bag, wishing each member of my amazing team a happy holiday and Merry Christmas!
