Are you ready for some fun?



The {Stamps} of Life and The Twinery Design Teams are playing together for this hop! Welcome if you are a new visitor, I hope you find something you love and will come back soon. You should have arrived here the blog of the creative Vicki Garrett.

caddy box embellished with Peapod baker's twine using Holly4Christmas stamp set

Using Holly4Christmas {set #14} from The Stamps of Life, I not only embellished a painted wood caddy, but I made a whole array of gift tags. You see, at Christmas...we gift candy to family and close friends. Not just any candy, we gift Nutty Nut Slippery Melts! Be sure to stop by again in December when I share that awesomely addictive {and super easy} candy that has become a Wright Family tradition.





I admit that I am not a professional quality stamper in any way, but I did not hold me back from playing and experimenting and I wanted to share with you just how versatile these stamps are; the quality of them is incomparable. Using the Peapod and Caribbean baker's twine added a fun twist while also highlighting the tree lights that I used my daughters' art pencils to color in. I would have let them color all the lights in themselves to make this a family project, but they were in school.



I got a little adventurous and stamped the holly leaves onto some patterned paper, fussy cut, embellished with Marschino twine and adhered to my gift tag. By the way, all my gift tags are 3"x3" in diameter to fit perfectly inside the caddy from Michaels.




More colored pencils, but this time I also used some markers with the Marschino bakers' twine from The Twinery. Have I mentioned there are 14 eco-luxe {and delicious} colors of baker's twine to choose from? From our home to yours, we hope you have a holly jolly Christmas wrapped in baker's twine!


Your next stop on the hop is with the talented Emily Niehaus.
