These pocket creations can be made all winter long. Fill the snowman with chocolate for Christmas and Hanukkah or add a gift card and a pair of sunglasses for some spring break fun. Hang the angel on your country Christmas tree or add a heart and a sentiment to turn it into a Cupid gift tag for Valentine’s Day. Add a gift card or cash to the pocket inside the card for Christmas or any winter birthday. Showing the multiple ways this bundle can be used makes it a great product-based class, as well learning a new technique.

It’s time to get your Christmas decorating done, and this tutorial has three Christmas decorations that would make a good addition to your collection. They would make great handmade gifts, too. There’s a Bethlehem lighted scene, a Christmas tree ornament, and a Christmas luminary. The projects would also make a great Christmas Décor class.

With Christmas just around the corner, you may need a few extra cards or tags laying around! This tutorial featuring classic Christmas colors from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and the Carols of Christmas and Labels to Love Stamp Sets! In addition, this handy decorated box will hold five cards that are lightly embellished, coordinating envelopes and tags. This makes a super cute gift to be used for Christmas or you can always change up the sentiment to create a thank you gift box for a totally different look. Also, makes for a great class idea for Demonstrators.

As the building of the mountain house got closer to completion, I started thinking that we needed something to display the year that the process (purchase of land) began. I had quite a variety of ideas, but the best one came when my parents brought a really heavy (possibly cement) jug that had once been in my grandmother's basement. I ❤️ this jug!!!! It's quite large, and I just knew it would be the perfect base.
Since I was coming to "the farm" (that's what I call the mountain house) last night, I used my Cricut Explore yesterday to cut the design from brown vinyl so I could apply it to the jug. The look is so pleasing to me!!!! I mean, really . . . it's truly perfect! The cotton stems were purchased from Hobby Lobby and Magnolia Market. Huge thanks to my son, Chad, for taking a quality picture for me.
