Christmas gifts

I wanted to post the pics of the gifts I made for various people this year at Christmas. I did break down and buy some Papertrey Ink stamps and I have to say.....WOW---love them!!! I will definitely be ordering more soon. I love how they have release parties, countdown, and NEW stamps every month!! Well, check out the link above for yourself if you are interested in clear stamping, new paper lines and new Palette ink colors. Now, on to the gifts I made.

This tin is from Papertrey Ink and was "lifted" from somewhere with a few minor changes I made. The red cardstock and ink are Papertrey....yep matching paper/ink!! The aqua cardstock and ink are SU. I absolutely love the versatility of this stamp set......Holiday Treats and who wouldn't like to get a personalized gift like this? These stamps fit exactly on Avery labels and they fit on Hershey nuggets!! This was made for my son's 1st grade teacher.

Now this second project is one using the bind-it-all machine...I love this thing!! I again made this for my son's 1st grade teacher. It is a magnetic notepad that can be personalized with a picture of her children. I did use TAC stamp set Forever Family for the heart and Build-a-Flower for the "happiness". The chipboard for the bases are just coasters you get from restaurants. Nothin' fancy!! Did you notice I also made a pen that matches her notepad?? How cool is that?

Now, we have various tins that were made for my husband's friends at work. I used another set in there this time....Can you see it? Yep, it's the Sweet Goodies stamp set from TAC for the tags!! To make the tags not so "white", I just used a sponge to lightly dab the white tags. This technique just "softens" it up a bit. Now, wait I'm not done yet!!

Here are the tins I made for my boss a.k.a. clinical coordinator and DON where I work. Here I got out my Alcohol inks and started inking them up. Not so traditional colors this time but I think they are oh so cute!!

What do you think?? Let me know!!
