Christmastime at the Pastry Shop

We are having a really fun challenge at
Just Inspirational Challenges.
Our theme this week is WINTER.
We have 2 great sponsors this week.
I decided for my project, I wanted to make something for mine and my  daughter's kitchen.  Something to hang up at Christmastime.
I got to use this fabulous stamp from The Paper Shelter.
Since we both love to bake, this stamp was perfect.
Christmastime at the Pastry Shop
I used some plain brown cardstock for the window frame.
I colored it the same colors as my kitchen is, so that it would match.
And my border is Chefs, so this couldn't be a more perfect fit for my kitchen.
I added some gorgeous lace to the top to mimick my lace curtains.
I added a piece of clear acetate to the top of the stamp.
Next I added some chunky glitter to the window frame for that
icy/snowy look in winter.
Lastly I added 2 pinecones and pine branches to the corners.
One of my favorite projects!!!

Sugar Plum Fairy Gift Tag

Starting today, here's another new challenge over at the
The theme is Anything Goes.
How easy is that?
If you haven't tried the All Dressed Up stamps yet,
they have some fabulous freebies on their blog that you can use.
Once you use them, I'm sure you'll fall in love with them like I did!
Ok, well onto my new project.
I decided to make a tag for a very special little girl's Christmas gift.
I thought it would be kind of cute to do a Sugar Plum Fairy theme for it.
I used some pretty little papers from my "leftovers" stash.
You know, those little pieces that are too big to throw away.
There is some pretty little pieces from DCWV Chateau Lavender
 and some white glittered paper.
I added a little bit of glitter to her wings and dress
and a very sparkly snowflake.
This is  just the right size for a gift tag.
I hope you'll join us over at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
