Inkspirations Christmas Gift Blog Tour

I'm sure you're overflowing with great Christmas gift ideas now ~ These gals are so talented and I count it such a privilege to be apart of this tour ~ I'm sure you enjoyed your time with Gardenia...isn't she amazing! I hope you have a great visit with me and feel inspired as you take a peek at just a few creations that I've been busy with! 

I created this gift box for a dear friend ~ I had a personalized mug painted for her and this was the perfect way to wrap it up ~

 I had so much fun creating this gift box ~
now it's wrapped up and ready to be gifted!

Here are a few snaps of her Gift Tag ~ I found this on Tammy White's blog and knew I needed to create this to go along with my Gift Box!

I pulled the ornament up toward the knot of my ribbon.....

...Then back down toward my Gift Tag, that has now become a Star!

Isn't that adorable!

My last creation that I'd like to share with you are Gift Card Holders. I absolutely love to shop for Christmas gifts for our children, their spouses and our grandsons....but this year will be completely different...we are heading to the slopes of Lake Louise ~ we are all so excited about our new Christmas adventure ~ we all agreed that Gift Cards from Ikea & H&M were the perfect gift. We don't have either of these stores in Winnipeg, so here is what I have created to hold each of their Gift Cards!

I scored my CS and placed it on the die in order to create a double folded tag...
the perfect place to slip their gift cards into!

And now your off to visit with Nicole...I know you'll find even more inspiring ideas as you wrap up the last of your Christmas gifting! Have an incredidble time visiting the rest of these amazingly talented gals, be sure to hit each blog, you don't want to miss anyone!
 ~ I hope you enjoyed your visit with me and would love to see you back in the New Year! If you have any questions, please be sure to let me know, I'd love to help you out! May you have a wonderful Christmas as you celebrate with family & friends ~ Blessings to you and yours!

  10. Oh Denise - I'm so glad to see what you've been creating these past few days. I've been checking in each day. What fun that you are part of a blog hope - congratulations. I love the box you created for the mug - beautiful paper and gorgeous bow. Love the tag - I saw that and bookmarked it so I could try it out - you did a wonderful job on it. Beautiful gift card holders too.

  11. Denise what fabulous projects you've made. I particularly like the tags with the 2-tag punch. I'm on holidays currently and only have a few stamps and dies with me, so can't wait to get home and make some of those for "all occasions". I'm following your blog now I'm so impressed.

  15. Gorgeous projects Denise. I love how you have used the die-cut around the base of your box & the star tag is exquisite. The gift card holders are lovely too - have fun shopping! :)
