Gift Givers and Special Announcement

I always get excited when it is Preview Session time for Create with Connie and Mary.  This year it really is like Christmas!  We have a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT or a PROJECT TUTORIAL almost every day of the Preview Session!  How exciting is that?  Today we are announcing a VERY special Guest Designer…but I'm not telling you here…you have to go to Create with Connie and Mary to find out all about her!  And…while you are there…have you subscribed yet?  Early Bird Pricing will be ending soon…don't be late!  You'll get SIX full tutorials EVERY week for SIX weeks!  That is over 36 tutorials for $29.95 US…less than $1 per day and you can play along with challenges on the seventh day to win prizes!  What are you waiting for?



One of the sets we are featuring during the Preview Session is Stampin' Up!'s Gift Giver's stamp set!  You may remember the little candy wrapper favors that I did for my son's wedding.  Well, we made 220 the first day, forgot that we had made an extra 20, and made 20 more later on!  So I had 240 of these candy wrapper favors and we only used about 210!  Since I had some left, I revamped them for my downline meeting and used them as swaps.  Of course, I had to remove the wedding information and looked around for a new set that I could use.  The little girl in Gift Givers was PERFECT to go with the Melon Mambo wrapper!



The Melon Mambo Candy Wrapper was embossed with the Elegant Lines Impressions Folder.  I wrapped around Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon.  I stamped the little girl on Whisper White with Black Stazon and watercolored her with Baja Breeze, Blush Blossom and Melon Mambo Markers.  I used the new Dazzling Details glitter on the snowflakes and the snow line.  I LOVE that we finally came out with this project!  I punched her out with the 1 3/4 Scallop Circle and layered her on the 1 3/4 punched circle of Baja Breeze.  I punched a hole in the top with the Crop A Dile so I could add it to the Baja Breeze Ribbon.



Isn't she CUTE!  For my swap, I filled them with small packages of M&Ms!  Yummy!


Again, don't forget to check out our Special Guest Designer over on Create with Connie and Mary!  I know you'll enjoy getting to know her!
