Visions of Sugarplums Day Three

Oh, Day Three already?!!  I always enjoy Visions of Sugarplums and this year is no exception.  Thank you to all of you who have visited our blogs and left such sweet comments!   Here goes one more day of Visions of Sugarplums projects...

First up is this adorable image from PPinky Dolls, one of this year's wonderful sponsors. I had the most fun watercoloring her - the whole time I kept thinking how sweet she is.  Well, Chrishanthi has a whole store of adorable digi stamps to choose from.  I also just got a couple of wood blocks with her art work.  Fabulous!  Go look, you'll see...

I made a very simple bag out of dotted vellum (4 1/4 x 11 folded in half and glued on each side).  I'm just tickled pink with this little project!

Next up, I'd like to introduce you to Baer Design Studio.  Brigitte has some beautiful papers.  This Christmas collection is gorgeous.  Be sure to visit, I'm sure you'll find many things to like.

I cut the reindeer out of one tag and popped him up on another pretty tag.  In the photo, you get a glimpse of the white brick paper that I wrapped around a pillow box.  It is quite lovely.

How about some fun with Lawn Fawn (another generous sponsor)?  I picked up these cute gingerbread men cookies at World Market while I was visiting my daughter in Wichita.  The Lawn Fawn gingerbread man is perfect!

A peek at the back.  Well, the back of the package anyway...

Lawn Fawn also has some adorable snowmen!  They're cute, right?  

To get the snowman to stand on top of the box, I die cut two snowmen.  I glued a small piece of paper (about 1/4" x 1 1/2")  leaving about an 1" sticking out the botton that I could fold and insert into the middle of the snowflake and glue underneath.  

 I used the regular size pillow box die from Lawn Fawn and changed it into a square pillowbox.  I've got a quick video below showing how to do that.

I always give a big thank you to Visions of Sugarplums sponsors.  They are:
