Visions of Sugarplums 2016 Day Two

It's Day Two of Visions of Sugarplums!  So enjoyed going around to all the blogs and seeing all the wonderful Christmas inspiration.  Did you go through it all at once or spread it out over the day?  Would be quite lovely to enjoy with a cup of your favorite tea or coffee.  I'm sure Day Two is going to be just as much fun!

Dachshund through the snow - totally cracks me up!  What a super cute stamp set from Lawn Fawn!  I've been practicing with my new chameleon pens.  There is a bit of a learning curve, maybe because I've been using copics.  

See that pretty lavender snowflake covered pillow box?  That's a free printable just for you! Download it below. 

 You can print it and keep it just as it is or here's a fun thing:  stamp snowflakes in a different color.  

Watch a quick video showing how to put the pillow box together:

Talk about a cute stamp set: this one hits all the cute and sweet buttons!   I was glad to see the unicorn fit perfectly inside the snowglobe dies.  Lawn Fawn made it so easy to create a shaker.

Unicorns are all the rage.  I think Louisa needs one for Christmas, right?  Well, she's got one now (or she will at Christmas).

I have to say, this just makes me smile!  A couple of tips:

Okay, here's a little something that makes me smile:  look at that adorable angel with her kitties.  I created this gift tag from vintage Christmas wrapping paper.  But, I think it would also work for a little girl birthday or baby shower. What do you think?

Free Printable:  These sweet Angel and Kitties Gift Tags come four to a page.  Adorable!
Download them below.

How about one more angel?  Won't she be darling sitting on your mantle, dressing up your desk or being given as a gift?  You can put these together quickly.

I lucked into finding an entire package of old stock that had never been used.  She's being offered as a Choux Box Kit in original vintage form.  Choux Box Kit Club members received info on all the kits yesterday.  If you're interested in becoming a member, click on the link at the top of my blog.  You can check my etsy store for any available kits. 

The originals are very cool, but I've also got this angel ready for you to download!  You're going to love her.
