The festive season

When Halloween is over, I celebrate.

The festive season has begun.


This year the making has begun with extra joy!
My new Winter Wonderland collection of crafting dies is so much fun I can't stop.


And since Sizzix likes to celebrate as much as I do, they're doing another giveaway in just a few days. 
Watch here for more info or check my Instagram or Facebook feed for the specifics coming soon.


While you want for the giveaway, let's get out the glitter and glue, paper and your Big Shot (this is the model I have) die cutting machine and let's craft ourselves a party!


It's the details that make us feel special at the holidays, 
so why not make fancy layered wine labels?

I used the set of 5 rounded scallops which I embossed with the falling snowflakes embossing folder and the set of small snowflakes. Fast and easy!



And why not make matching coasters?
I used a scrap of mat board to make this one, but you you could cut it of fun foam if you've got it.
Here's where you'll find the die:
Sprinkle with glitter, polish your wine stems and plan your play list!



I like to decorate each place setting with some gilded foliage, greenery and a menu to take home for a souvenir, so I'm getting that prepared now, while I can relax and take my time.


And just because we never get too old for a take home goodie, I'm using the same round scallop die I did for the wine labels and the elegant tag & label die paired up with assorted small snowflakes and some fun washi tape.




It's so much fun to plan a party and my new Winter Wonderland snowflake collection makes an elegant party quick and easy.
