Charismatic GIFTIE thingies!

hiya gang! what's shakin'?
busy week here, with holiday luncheons and trying to squeeze in as much learning as i can, because next friday is my last day at the branch before i kick things off at our brand new location! it's so exciting, but i've really gotten to enjoy working with the people there, so i know i'm going to miss them. i'm not, however, going to miss getting up at 5:15 in the mornings, or getting home at 6:45 in the evenings. i love my job though, which makes the commute bearable, and i NEVER dread going to work. :) i don't think i've EVER said that about any job before.

okay, so on with the crafty stuff!

we want to see something that's NOT cards or scrappy pages... we want to see GIFT HOLDERS, or GIFTS! (yes, we know you give cards as gifts, but usually a card accompanies a gift, so that's what we're talkin' about, kids!)

i had some fun playing with a bunch of new yummies, but i was SO disappointed in myself because i had made a slew of these (from the same line) last week for the craft fair, and forgot to photograph them. so i came up with BETTER templates than the ones i'd used, and here are my little creations:

some close-ups...

(that one's a gift card holder)

lemme tell ya, these little stinkers are FUN to make, espesh with the Mawtha scoring board! and they're perfect for gift cards, jewellery, candy or little trinkets (even crafty gifts for your fellow cardmaking pals!).

everything you see here is from SEI, except the baker's twine and the dark green cardstock. if you haven't played with the Kris Kringle line, i HIGHLY recommend it! such fabby patterns and the quality of the papers is just WONDERFUL. and it's festive and FUN - perfectly out of the ordinary and just my style!

so do you wanna play along with the Charisma Gals? make something for someone (or a box in which to put something you buy for 'em), and you could win...

3 digis of your choice from MAKE IT CRAFTY! (and if you've been paying attention, you know i LOVE the digis from Zoe's shop, and i absolutely LOVE being on her design team, among so much crazy awesome talent!)

$10 to spend in the Tellen's Place ETSY store! some truly FUN and quirky images - perfect for those who like to add a little humour and/or wit to their crafting! not to mention, the owner, Terry O is one fabby, funky gal!

play along with the Charisma Gals this week for your chance to win! my teammates have done some GORGEOUS, inventive, adorable things for their projects, and i TOTALLY urge you to CLICKIE HERE to check 'em all out! i'd be SHOCKED if you weren't instantly inspired to make something equally wonderful! you have until next WEDNESDAY to play with us - still time to squeeeeeeze in some holiday crafting, so join us!

i decided to play along at Paper Sundaes, as their theme is "GIFT IT!" - i'm gonna be sticking stuff in these boxes and giftin' away! :)
and this little set is for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - they gave us the general theme of CHRISTMAS and i wasn't just going to opt for a plain ol' card! :)
