What a whirlwind these past couple of weeks have been. For the longest time I just didn't know where to turn or what to do next. Today I'm finally able to say I can see somewhat clearly.
We lost my 82 year old grandfather last week, which threw our world upside down. But I'm so happy to say he has reunited with my grandmother and they are having a killer dance right now!! I smile as I think of it =) He was a beautiful man who touched the lives of hundreds of people. Love and miss you vovo...muah
The lovely couple at our wedding
My fingers and butt are sore from all this Christmas designing for parties. I can't wait to show you my creations next year....Eeeee!!! There's one collection, "Jingle Bell Rock" I LOOOOVE!!! Stay tuned in 2013.
Now moving my design skills onto Kahlen's 2nd birthday. Time to think of our sweet angels special day =)
In the meantime we've been decorating, wrapping and got all our Christmas cards out just in time. Phew!
Can I dedicate this job to her every year? hehe
I LOOOOOOOVE wrapping Christmas gifts...especially if they have a gift card. There's something fun about figuring out new ways for someone to find a gift card =)
Made these for co-workers. Hope they don't throw out the wrapping without noticing the RED BOW!!! I mean, my hips love chocolate....but they love The Keg even more =P
You can find a HOW-TO VIDEO below on a card I made using a similar technique
The only difference with the gift card holder between the above photo and the HOW-TO VIDEO below is I did not fold the glitter paper to make a pocket for the card as the glitter card stock is quite thick. Basically I just applied red tape to the back of the glitter paper on the top, bottom and left side and adhered to the wrapped chocolate. I felt if I folded the glitter paper, the pocket would not be snug enough for the card.
OH! And I also used a 1" circle punch.
Now onto the other 50 gifts that need wrapping...
