On Friday night, December 11 from 7pm to 8pm CST Stamps and Smiles will be having their release party and blog hop. There will be games and prizes and lots of fun....

Ok, now my sample for the digi release today...this set is called Christmas Eve..

I have to say, I think this is one of my favorites from the release this week....I love Santa and he is soooo jolly!

Make sure to stop by the Stamps and Smiles site today and check out the other Design Team members samples and be sure to play along with us today....

Now....on to Project Tuesday!!!!

Ok, this was a really fun project to make! I love gift bags, and this one was super easy to put together and really is quite large. I used 12x12 paper instead of the 8 1/2 x 11 paper to make it even bigger....

side view:

I used the Woodlands cart to cut the snowman and the tag on the front of the bag on my Cricut. Instead of using 2 sided paper, I used standard 12x12 cardstock and then layered my designer paper on the front, measuring and cutting the layers just a bit smaller than the actual measurement. I have made a few of these, and will be using them this Christmas!

Please stop by Project Tuesday and check out the other Design team members samples for the project today. Be sure to link up your project to Mr. Linky so we can all take a peek at your project this week!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your Santa card is soooo jolly. I adore your gift bag because that is my favorite Cricut snowman cut. I also have to tell you that fireplace decoration is gorgeous. I'm enjoying everyone else's decorating this year because there is none at my house. We are in the middle of a remodeling project and my house is a disaster area. So thanks for sharing yours.

  2. Cindy what an adorable Santa card...you've colored him to PERFECTION! And your snowman box is super cute!
    Hugs~ Kim
