Ginger Hugs

Just popping in for a quick post this morning
to share this cute little holiday favor box
I created using "Gingerbread Scene" from





It was so quick and easy to do this!
This kit comes with outlined and colored images and sentiments.
I used colored images to make the project super quick.
They were printed and fussy cut.
I adhered to a white panel and matted with glitter paper.
The favor boxes were purchased at Dollar Tree.

I hope you'll check this set out along with all the
others available at

MHKDesigner Inspiration

Hello!
Today's my day to share some inspiration on the

Since it's December and we're into the holiday mode
I created a gift bag using one of my favorite
MHKDesigns sets.


I love this vintage Santa image and it dresses
up a plain white gift bag perfectly for gift giving.
The tag was created using one of the greetings from the set.


I colored the image with pencils, fussy cut
and adhered with foam tape to a rectangular mat
of designer paper and solid card stock.
Coordinating designer paper was used behind the mat.




I hope I've inspired you 
to create something for the holiday season!

Until next time,
I wish you and yours Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
