Today I'm sharing with you a couple items I made using some awesome products from The Cutting Cafe, one of the sponsors for this hop!  Here's what I've made for you today!


If you've been with me for a while you may remember these little jars that my friend Mitra and I painted when I got to spend the day with her over the summer!  The jars were a clear blue color and she showed me how to use mirror paint to give it a cool mercury glass kind of finish... the paint goes on the inside... it's pretty cool!  Anyway, I thought one of them would be perfect to hold a little holiday decor/centerpiece!  When I thought about what to put in it, I decided not just some traditional Christmassy foliage but something different and I thought of these shaker ornaments from The Cutting Cafe.


I always wish for Peace for the holidays... if I could have anything that's what it would be so I just love these ornament shaped shakers because they contain the perfect sentiment.  And my order of My Minds Eye Sugar Plum paper from The Cutting Cafe Shop came just in time... oh my... I'm gonna need another one of these pads... beautiful beautiful colors and gorgeous patterns... love it!


AND my custom stamp came just in time too to offer up a cute holiday sentiment as well... Happy Owl-idays... lol... cute, right?  I picked a few digital images from The Cutting Cafe and gave Regina the images and sizes I wanted... a quick proof.. and it was on its way to me soon after... I am so excited about it and I'll put a pic of it at the end of this post.


The snowflakes are also from the shaker cutting files... see that little snowflake on the ornament?  I just resized it a few times and cut a few out of some seaglass and white glitter papers.  And that foliage... more clearance holiday foliage from Michael's end of season sale last year.

I also decided to use this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch to create a card with the Sugar Plum papers, some extra snowflakes and my adorable custom stamp set:


Tee hee!  I think I might make some more of these... and yup!  That plaid is in the Sugar Plum pad.  #madforplaid  I'm pretty sure that twine came wrapped around one of my Cutting Cafe orders and the sequins are those fantastic clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Now...be sure to visit everyone and leave them some love... because it will make them happy and because you'll have more chances to win!  And be sure to comment over at Lori's Choux Choux Paper Art Blog for sure because that's where it all begins and how she will know you are participating!
