October Stamp of the Month ~ Share the Magic

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! Although Halloween is right around the corner, this month we're focusing on Christmas with the Stamp of the Month, Share the Magic! It's an adorable seasonal set that I know you will love!
If you arrived here from Annette's blog, you're on the right track! The hop is a circle, so keep hopping and once you end back here you'll know you saw all the fantastic ideas from the 70 consultants participating!

I created two projects this month. I was thinking about Christmas parties, so I created a wine bottle gift tag to give to the hostess and a small treat bag that could be used as a party favor or even a place card.
The wine tag has a little pocket, so you could add in a gift card or a Christmas Card before giving the gift. You could even add in some chocolate or a treat to enjoy with the wine.
I included pepermint candies in the treat bag, but you could also use this for a gift card or Christmas money.

Both projects used the new Mistletoe papers, the Share the Magic stamp set, Cranberry Ink, New England Ivy ink, Honey Ink, and Bitty Sparkles. The wine tag also has red sparkles added as ornaments on the tree. The treat bag is tied with the gold satin ribbon from the Mistletoe Creative Basics.

I hope my projects sparked your creativity! Don't forget to add a comment before hopping to the next stop on the hop, Carla's blog! If you get stuck along the hop, you can check out the list of blog participants HERE to continue on your way. Have fun! :)

There is a reason...

I've been a little lax on posting lately. I've been pretty wiped out! The reason? There is a little baby in my belly sucking out all my energy!! :) We are so excited to share our news...Baby Burch #3 will be here in March! My official due date is March 25. The boys are super excited! :)
