The Creation Station - All Wrapped Up!

Welcome to our Creation Station blog hop.  We are a group of international SU! demos that blog on the first Sunday of the month.  This month we are highlighting ways to package gifts and such with products from Stampin' Up!

If you came from the lovely Sara Levin - thank you for continuing on to me!  I originally wanted to show you two ways to use the 6"x17" gusseted bags and realized after I uploaded my pictures that I never slipped the bottle into the second bag.  Either way, I'm happy with the results!

I took a piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP and made a sturdy base for the puppy chow to sit in.

I used the Cheerful Tags Dies to make the two tags and used the Yummy Little Christmas for the sentiments.  I love these tag dies - I'm so glad I borrowed my MIL's set so I could get an idea whether I'd like them - I think you would too!  I cut about 4" off the top of the bag and folded it over instead of bunching it up and tying it.  I like the look!

For the bottle tag, I took another piece of the designer series paper (DSP) and added some Gold Glimmer Paper cut with the beautiful, intricate die.  This bottle tag also has two slots to slid ribbon through for an extra detail.  Another sentiment from the Yummy Little Christmas set to tie it all together.  

I hope that you like my tags!  These awesome framelits are carrying over to the new catalog so you will be able to buy them even after the holiday catalog ends Jan 3rd!  Woohoo!

I hope you continue around the hop!  I know you will find some amazing ideas for your holiday gift giving!  You can head back to the talented Sara Levin or on to the next - my soon to be Artisan teammate - Kimberly Van Diepen!

Have a wonderful week!


*Must use hostess code P7M6WKNQ to receive the gift*
**Do not use a hostess code with an order over $150 - I will still send a gift, but YOU will receive the hostess rewards!**
