Have a Tasty Holiday

Hello my friends! It's Candice here!

First, I will like to thank Candace and Michelle for providing the opportunity to be a guest designer today for Jaded Blossom!

Since my day is after Christmas, I struggled with my decision to go with either a Christmas or Valentine project.  

I decided to go with this goodie bag for Santa.  This year, Santa wanted brownies and we wanted to give him something cute to put them in.  I used the Mini Tags die, and Gingerbread Wishes stamps and die for the sentiment and the image.  The bag is a silhouette file.

You can check out the video to see my process for putting this bag together.

Thank for stopping by and have a Happy New Year!

Project Share: Polar Vortex Layout

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing a scrapbook layout I created.  I made this layout when we had that burst of cold and snow right before Thanksgiving.  I am actually saving the layout for this winter because I have a feeling that it's going to be bad.

For the layout, I used the Snowflakes dies from Jaded Blossom.  The polar bears are from the Polar Bear Holiday set from Close To My Heart.  The images were colored using Spectrum Noir markers.  I used the Snow Haven paper pack, which I believe is perfect for those winter layouts. 

Thank you for stopping by!
