Gift set and Card filer #2

After having so much fun making the 1st I knew I had to try again and see if i could do better ( i made boo boo's on the 1st one) and I love how this one turned out! i made it a little smaller, as i generally make A2 size cards, and i used a lightweight chipboard/cardboard (the kind that are at the back of your DCWV stacks, or in your CM paper packs or page protector packs to keep it sturdy) and I really liked working iwth it more it was easier to cut not as heavy of a finished product but still very sturdy and cheaper and easer to get!!!

Also another one I had to try also inspired by Dawn at http://dawnsspecialcreations.blogspot.com/2008_08_01_archive.html where she has a beautiful example as well as a link to Jakie Topa's blog who has a tutorial sheet you can print out. ( http://jackietopa.typepad.com/Stationary.pdf ) anyways, this was great fun, I'm not done as I still have more pieces to make to fill it with but I wanted to share what i had for now with you.


front unopened box ( i will place a colored christmas Bealla in the pink panel)

Opened

Close up of front panel, there is a little address book with lined paper to help you keep you christmas card list organized, a small pocket to store your postage stamps in, as well as a pen holder. ( i will decorate a pen to match and include it later)

There is a small tag pocket (left), which has some gift tags (i need to make 2 more for a total of 10, plus stamp "To:" and "From:" on them and tie some ribbon so they are ready to attach to the christmas gifts)

The small pocket to teh right will hold some larger tags/mini note cards with cute images on teh front and room for a note on the back.

the back pocket (largest) will hold a few chrismas cards. so far I have 3 I think I will include a total of 6

Card #1 ( i made a few days ago but just finished it. I added the stamp to the front "peace")
and finished the inside with "Take a break from the hustle and bustle"
Card #2 I also started the other day but only just got some christmas stamps in order to finis with "Celebrate"
Made just last night, using my new cuttlebug!!! "Warm Holiday Wishes" with grumpabella decked out in her Christmas bath robe and a nice hot cup of coffee/cocoa/tea
anways these were great fun to create and I hope you like them.
