Perfect Hostess Gift

Going to a party or dinner this week and looking for a smart hostess gift but out of time?

Here is a quick, easy and beautiful idea.


I love to give Sparkling Cider to the Hostess.  It can either be opened and served at the party or saved for later.
 This would also be a great project for a bottle of flavored oil.

I used two different files from the JGW Poinsettia Passion Collection.


JGW Poinsettia Passion

Because of all the detail on the Poinsettia for the Doily Frame Card I chose to use that flower but I  put it on the Bottle Tag.
The instructions for the card can be found here.



Here is a close up of my flower.

I cut the leaves and stems from 2 different greens and then followed Jodi's instructions to ink and curl the leaves.

For the Poinsettia leaves I used two different reds.  Emboss the leaves with an embossing envelope.
Ink and curl the leave following Jodi's instructions again.

Once it is assembled, add some small gold beads to the center.

To finish the gift off, I tied a big sparkly bow and added to the top of the bottle.

I am so happy with the way this turned out and I think my Mother in Law will be pleased when I give it to her at Christmas dinner.

Be Sure to check out SVG Attic for some new and old Christmas files!
Merry Christmas.

Happy Birthday Jodi

Today is Jodi's birthday.
Jodi is one of the amazing designers behind SVG Attic and Snapdragon Snippits.
If you use a silhouette/ Cameo I am sure you have used at least one of her designs.

I feel very blessed to be lucky enough to know and "work" with this amazing, talented women.


This card is one the she created the file for and can be purchased at SVG Attic or in the Silhouette Store.
I used the print and cut feature (one of my favorite things to do.) to create the little sentiment on the banner.

To see more cards from the design team celebrating Jodi's birthday visit the blog.

Happy Birthday Jodi!

Christmas kisses and Cookies

Is there any treat that says Christmas more than cookies or chocolate?
Today for my post over at SVG Attic I decided to combine two of my favorite Christmas treats.
Cookies and Chocolate Kisses.


The file is from the JGW Beary Sweet Colection.

JGW Beary Sweet

This is a fun little kit full of teddy bears.
I used the 3D Chocolate Candy  and I love how it turned out.


I left it the original size for Hersey Chocolate Kisses


Then made one bigger (set the scale to 150% in Silhouette Studio) for some chocolate chip cookies!

The tag that comes with it is already set up for a print and cut with instructions here to make it.
Change the words to say Merry Christmas.

Use some metallic, or foil cardstock, to make it really shimmer and you have the perfect gift box to share with your friends and neighbors.
