Visions of Sugarplums - Day Three

Thank you so much for joining us for Day Three of Visions of Sugarplums!  Hope you've been checking out all the blogs and enjoying the posts. The fun continues... 

On Monday, I showed part of my giveaway and it includes two viewmaster pockets.   I decided they would make darling gift card holders. 
They are the perfect size, they are already a pocket all you have to do is add some fun embellishments. 
I'm going to leave the reel in mine and just slip in a gift card.  Cute, huh?

Regina, who hosted our giveaway yesterday (winner below), has some awesome Christmas pockets at The Cutting Cafe.  One is a mitten pocket, which I've used to create another gift card holder.  I have to tell you -  I like gift cards!  I like to get them and I like to give them.  But, I want to give them in some really cute packaging. 

  I added the pretty mitten paper behind the cutout, along with some felt for cuffs. 

I aso added a coin envelope with  a Dennison label, because I wanted to put a little note in this one.

This last gift card pocket is made from digital images from Iralamija's Shop.  Love her vintage image collages.  I check quite often to see if she's put something new in her store. 

I printed and sewed two images to make the pocket and enlarged a flashcard to make the tag.   Beatriz Jennings of Iralamija's Shop is hosting our giveaway today!  She is giving away two digital collages of the winner's choice.   All of today's comments left here and on today's participating blogs count as an entry to win the two digital collages.  Thank you, Beatriz!

The winner of The Cutting Cafe's Christmas treat boxes and three sets of your choice is:

My giveaway winner will be posted on Friday.  Check out the past two posts for the contents.  Today, I'm adding red crinkle ribbon to the stash.  Remember all comments left here and on participating blogs count as an entry.

Linda is also posting today.   She calls her blog My Happy Place and it certainly is!  I love visiting her blog, not only is she very creative showing fabulous projects, she also displays the most wonderful photography.  Mika is sharing her third (actually 4th) recipe today.  The others have wetted my tastebuds - can't wait to find out what she's showing now.  And Jennifer will share more family traditions - have so enjoyed reading about and seeing pictures of her family.     Visit them all!
