Glitter Queens Winter Blog Hop Day 3

Wow-where does the time go?  Today is the last day of our hop and we hope you've enjoyed everything.   Did you see what Jenny did today?   My project today is a sweet little something for all the extra people on your holiday list.  Something for the postman, bus driver, favorite clerk at a store or coworker.

A few weeks ago our commissary had Starbucks hot cocoa packets.  I used some whisper white to make a pocket for the hot cocoa and a top hat lifts it out.  I attached a mini candy cane and there you go!
The whisper white is 6 1/4" x 8 1/2.  On the long side score at 3/4, 1 1/8, 4 3/4, 5 1/8.  Along the bottom score at 1/4" and it will make a box with an open top.
The hat is black 3 1/2 x 4 3/4"  On the long way score at 2 1/8 and 2 3/8.  Attach it to the packet.  The brim is 2 pieces of black 1 x 4 3/4" with all corners rounded and attached to the top of the box.
The eyes are 1" circles with white pupils from a hand held punch.  The nose is pumpkin pie cut with the pennant punch.  Jolly Bingo Bits and the small scallop decorate the brim.  His scarf is from the DSP stack cut with the Hearts a Flutter framelit.
If you have any questions please leave me a comment.  Now on to Gina and don't forget Tamara.
One last project before I go....what do you do with the Christmas cards you receive?  Here's how I preserved mine last year.

Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome back!  I hope you enjoyed all the projects yesterday.  You may be here after visiting Jenny or on your own.  Please make sure to stop by everyone's blog to get really inspired.  Okay now on to today's project.

Can I say again how much I love the journaling tags.  The turned into these cute mini cards with minimal effort.  I packaged four together to give as a gift or you can use each as a quick card.  The base of each is a crumb cake card 3 x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4".  Four fit into this envelope made with the envelope punch board. A little glitter and some washi tape really jazzed them up.  I think the Santa one is my favorite. In fact I love it so much I'm going to enter it on SUO challenges.   A belly band really dresses up the envelope with the set Four Frames and the sentiment is from Sweet Essentials.
Now don't forget to stop by Gina's and Tamara's for more super cute ideas.
And come back tomorrow for our last day and idea for a little gift for all the extra people on your list.

Glitter Queens Winter Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome...grab a cup of cocoa and relax for a minute.  The Glitter Queens are here to help you get a head start on the holidays.  You are probably arriving here from Jenny's blog but if you miss anyone just check the end of this post for everyone sharing with us this month.
The holidays can be such a stressful time when it should really be about celebrating family and focusing on the reason for the season.  The first step in making things easier is getting organized.  I was really inspired by the Season of Style This and That Journal and a project I did a few years ago along the same lines.  So here is my holiday planner.
I started with a composition book that I had left over from school supplies.  The front is covered with Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The front is decorated with Season of Style Journaling Tags and a fabric bookmark.  I made some tabs with the Envelope Punch Board using the Season of Style DSP stack.  I have 4 sections (calendar, cards, gifts and journaling).

To make any picture bigger just click on it to get a closer look.  In the gift section I also used the envelope punch board to make a place to put receipts.
This was a lot of fun to put together and I also used some washi tape to secure the journaling tags.

I hope this inspires you to get organized and get ahead so you can enjoy the holidays.  Come back tomorrow to see some quick cards that can be packaged together as a gift or given out to special friends.

Now don't stop here keep going to Gina's blog to see what is going on in her holiday workshop.
After Gina you have to see Tamara as she always does something fantastic.

Have fun...see you tomorrow!
