Today I am sharing a couple of Fun Projects and the first one features The Brand New Big Bold Christmas Stamp set along with the Brand New Gorgeous Snowflake Cutting Plate too! I'm Soo Thrilled to share these Fabulous New stamps and Cutting Plate. They made it Super Quick and Easy to create a bunch of Darling Christmas Cards! Yay!! And You know I am LOVING that!...;-)
I always have a Huge Christmas Card list Each year, so I really loved playing with all the New Goodies & putting these Super Fun Christmas cards together! 8-)
I Stamped the Brand New Big Bold Christmas sentiment with Colorbox Frost White ink, embossed with White EP & cut them out with the help of TE's Label Stacklets 6 Dies. My Mats and BG Layers were created with TE's Choice Kraft CS, TE's Choice Snow White CS, Bazzill CS, The Brand New Snowflake Cutting Plate and Simple Stories December Documented 6x6 collection! 8-) To finish it all up I added Some Festive Holly leaves created with TE's Very Merry Outlines Dies and Split Pea Taylored Felt, Ribbon from my stash, & a Cute little button all tied up with a bit of Natural Burlap Twine!... 8-)

Next up I am featuring the Absolutely DARLING Brand New Sack It To You w/ Bonus Santa Dies!! Can I just tell you I LOVE this new Collection of Dies!! Yay!! And to make them even more Fun TE has also created Lots of Adorable Additional Die sets so you can create LOTS of different Fun Holiday Gift/Treat Bags!! I can't wait to try them ALL out!! Some of my Sweet teamies will be featuring them on their Blogs today! So Be sure to check them all out! I just Know you are Going to Love Each and Every one of them!...8-) 
I Created my Sweet Sack It To You Santa Bags bases, with Bazzill CS and put them all together with the help of X-Press It Sticky Tape. 
My Buttons and Belt were created with a few scraps of Black SC from my stash that I coated with Glossy Accents for a bit of shine. The Buckles were cut out from Gold Glitter CS and just for fun I used TE's Small Scallop Border die and Marshmallow Taylored Felt for My Santa's Suits trim. 
I popped the Belts and Buckles up with a bit of foam tape, and my buttons were adhered with the the help of my Tombow Mono-Multi Liquid Glue... And to finish them all up I added some Fun Rouge Glitter Tape to my Cute Little Santa Bag's Handles! 8-)
