Gift set

Hi all,

You know those freebies that come with magazines? The ones that look lovely, so you buy the mag, only to have said freebie sit neglected at the bottom of a pile of stuff for an age or two?

This is not one of those.

And I'm not the only one who has been taken by the lovely Gingerbread Lane goodies by Jennifer Ellory that are currently on offer. So hard to resist the scrummy papers and lovely chipboard shapes! I've seen numerous cards out there in blogland already.  Let me add mine...

How tasty does that gingerbread house look? And the candy cane is so cute! I also made a gift box and a tag.

For the tag I used Kraft card and topped it with a gingerbread tree. (I so want a real one of those! lol), I also added Stardust Stickles to the edges for a touch more sparkle.

And there's still loads of shapes left over, so I think I may make another set. I have a stall at my son's school fair in a couple of weeks, and I'm hoping these may prove popular... I know I'd buy them! x

I'd like to enter these into the following challenges:

Glitter and Sparkle - Tag it
The Crafty Bloggers network - Christmas
Great impressions - Holiday card or tag
CHNC Challenge Extra - November
Crafty Calendar challenge - All things Christmas
C.R.A.F.T - Gift bag or box

Hope your day is a fabulous one!

This is an adorable collection Sammy, I can't believe you made them using a free gift - the Kraft card stock goes so well with the papers and embellishments.
