My cousin celebrated her daughters first birthday with the Bacyardigans. I have to be honest and I have to research about them. I used a couple of cartridges to try to recreate the characters, Create a critter was excellent but they have a Moose that doesn't look like this one.

Having Flat Rate Boxes under the CHristmas tree gave me the idea to recreate the box for my LO. I used the acid free spray for the box.
I used a stamp from Technique Tuesday that says Do Not Open until December 25th and TT flourish over the "stamp"

I created this pillow for chocolates. It was modified during the assembly.
After I used the Gypsy and the Cricut to cut the pillow, I used a Cuttlebug folder to add texture to the acrylic. The acrylic is a little piece from a clear stamp set.
My original idea was to have a shaker in the window. Yes, you heard right "was" because a little accident happen
It looks pretty but when I assembled the pillow, the tape wasn't enough to secure the shaker. Apparently the Mountain Tape isn't a good friend with the transparency.
It's filled up with Dark Dove chocolates
A little note tag: Merry Christmas!!!
The tag! Yes, I doodle and in different colors
Finally, I found this sticker and thought it was great to seal the box.
I have been searching for ways to storage my cartridge collection and so far, this is what I have decided.
I'm not completely happy with the storage. I wrote the name on each cartridge and have them alphabetize (fonts and shapes) and they are color coded.
I still have the original boxes, I might use them in my classroom to keep school supplies: pencils, crayons and scissors.

I used a wooden stamp for my Christmas cards - Snoopy and Charlie Brown. I colored the images with Bic markers and use scrap papers I have. I tried to personalize and make them different using different background.
I applied glossy effects to some of them
I also used a clear stamp (Fancy Pants) for the envelopes
