Easy Gift Idea....

I made up these "cupcake" gifts to give at a Holiday Luncheon ~ everyone could use a pair of socks!!
I just took a pair of socks, rolled them up from the toes, wrapped an elastic around the bottom, slightly pulled up the middle to create the "frosting" look and placed a pom pom in the center. Next I cut out a cupcake liner, assembled it and placed the socks inside!!  Wrap in cellophane and top with a tag and you've got yourself a cute little gift!!

(dies used: Scalloped Cupcake Liner, 4x4 Poinsettia and 4x4 Tags)

Using "Tag it"

Love the "Tag it" set!!  Used one of the larger tags and the little circle to create a tag that matches the paper I used on this layout:
(dies used: Winter Wishes Alphabet and Tag It Kit)

"It Kits" ~ new die sets

The "IT KITS" all include dies, and as a bonus - they also include digital cutting files. The other great item included in each kit is a Zipper Storage Pack ~ holds all the dies!  Great Value again by Lifestyle Crafts!!

"TAG IT KIT" - this kit has 16 dies, and accompanying digital cutting files. The sizes of the tags range in size from 1" x 1.5" up to 2"x 3", the sizes of the smaller shapes are approximately .5" x 1".

"EDGE IT KIT" - this kit contains 7 dies, and accompanying digital cutting files. The sizes of the dies range in size from .25" - 2" x 6".

"CLIP IT KIT" - this kit has 26 dies, and accompanying digital cutting files. The sizes of the clips are roughly 1.5"x 1.5", the sizes of the little shapes and words are approximately .5"x 1.25". {great for SMASH books}

Let the light shine through!

Love the new Martha Stewart "punch all over the page" Jack o Lantern Punch!  It is just the right size to cut into many different Lifestyle Crafts die cuts!  You can make your own "luminous" bags for table decorations, just ensure you use the battery operated tea lights or you may get a little more flame than desired from the "Paper Bag":
