Stampin'Up!s Sparkly & Bright Bringing Christmas Cheer to PPA

Today's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is a themed challenge, Christmas Cheer. My project holds a packet of Celestial Seasons Cider to warm someone's spirit's during the busy holidays. There are some beautiful projects created by the design team, take a look!

The holidays always have the potential for taking off dragging us behind. This project is a great reminder to slow down and take time for ourselves and family ~ the rest all falls into place somehow. So to all my stampin' friends and visitors ~ grab a mug and relax!

The Sparkly & Bright stamp set is fun to use. These images are cute and the sentiment just makes you smile. I colored the image with Stampin' Write markers and covered a few areas with Iridescent Ice using the Versamark pen and the Heat tool. The image easily fit in the 1 3/8" Circle punch. Regarding the inside of my project. I could not find a poem for cider so yours truly wrote it and I'm no poet.

I used the same pattern as the Tea Time project in Wrapping 101. I just altered the size to fit a bigger packet. Check out all the Wrapping 101 projects in the right side bar. The Wrapping 101 PDF is available to purchase as well.

God Bless,
