Festive Frenzy....

Hello and welcome to another Blog Hop from the Stampin' Creative girls. You will have arrived here from the lovely EMMA. Such lovely projects x

I can't believe where the year is going and with the Nutty one having been away for the last 6 weeks I feel time is getting away from me. We still have 4 weeks to go before he is home, so with the stress of dealing with everything from renovations to homework and housework by myself,  crafting time is very much therapy and very much needed. 

Even the youngest members of the family need to feel special at the dinner table and here is a little place setting just for them. I used the Snow Place stamp set and matching framelits to create a little trio of place mat, cutlery pocket and napkin holder. I laminated the place mat so little spills won't ruin the fun. 

Of course no dinner is complete without a cracker so here is one made using the Envelope Punch Board. Each cracker holds 3 small chocolates, Just enough to fill any little holes left after dinner(!)

Finally something new I have discovered and am loving recently... Pocket Letters. This is a fun way to swap little goodies and art. Each pocket letter is made up of 9 ATC sized cards which you design and decorate then place into the pockets. Behind each card is a little gift and this can be crafting goodies or edible! 

I have used Project Life cards and accessories along with Lost Lagoon cardstock and the Snow Place stamp set again. 

This set will soon be on it's way to my swap partner. If you would like to find out more and join in a swap or two then pop over to OUR GROUP on facebook
