Moxxie {Neighbor Gifts}

Good morning! I have some fun and very easy gifts you could put together. They make great neighbor gifts. :) They could easily be paired with a roll of wrapping paper & some tape. I used two of Moxxie's amazing lines- Winterland & Happy Pawlidays.
These are 6x6 sheet protectors that I decorated and turned into envelopes! The one on the left holds 3x3 cards and the other one holds some Christmas tags, even some for those furry friend gifts! :)
You start out with a 6x6 sheet protector and carefully cut off the side with the punched holes, make sure not cut the seam that keeps it closed! Then I cut out a 8 1/4" x 6 1/2" piece of cardstock, score it at 2" down from one of the long ends. Then you also need two pieces of designer paper- one to decorate the front side (so this can be any size) but for the insert that goes INSIDE of your sheet protector you need it to be 6" x 6 1/8". Next we will add some sticky tape to the back of your sheet protector and center and stick it the back side of your cardstock below the score line. Next you'll cut off the two corners at the top to make it look like an envelope flap and add a Velcro dot towards the center (I like to keep the dots together, stick it to one side then press down to stick it to the other side) It should look like this...
Now because you can see those sticky strips and they just aren't attractive! We insert the piece of designer paper you cut earlier, the 6" x 6 1/8" one.
Now make what ever you want to put inside of them!
I made some 3x3 cards for one and some cute little tags for the other.
Well I hope I've helped you out with a last minute gift idea!
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Now to share with you my fun little project!
I have such a fun & very cute way to display your pictures and you get to use up some of those cd cases that are just laying around! They are perfect for this time of the year, they make great gifts for the grandparents!

You’ll need 4 regular cd cases (not the slim ones).
Carefully take out the part that holds the CD in.
   Then re-assemble two of the cd cases backwards.
You’ll then need to cut four sheets to be your background for each side. The dimensions will need to be:  4 5/8" x 5 3/4" From there add your pictures, embellish away. Here are some close ups of my four.
Add them to your cube, snap all four sides together and voila! You now have an adorable center piece! You can even add a vase or candle to sit inside of it! Here's a shot from the top.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Moxxie {Let It Snow}

Good morning! I have a "perfect for winter" layout to share with you. I used Moxxie's AWESOME Winterland line. I really love the colors, they are gorgeous in this winter line (and I'm someone who normally doesn't like purple so that means a lot!). :)
Lately, I've been cutting down my designer paper by a quarter inch on the top and side and layering it over some cardstock. I really like the look it gives it. I did a bit of distressing around the edges of the designer paper. I then did some layering with some of the scraps I had behind the picture. I also fussy cut some of the snowflakes. I also traced out a few with some clear glittery Stickles, because snowflakes should just sparkle. Here's some close ups of the some of the details. It's hard to see it in the picture but the Stickles look amazing on the snowflakes! :
I also sprinkled some punched out snowflakes and sequins.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
