Grab N Go Cup Wrapper Set

Here is a fun holiday gift to give to your favorite coffee, tea or hot cocoa lover.  The PDF prints up so beautifully and you can fill the cup with gift cards, coffee, tea and anything else you can think of.  I wrapped the cup holder around a standard to go coffee cup from the grocery store.  They sell them in larger packs.

I added some glossy accents and some stickles to give the parts of the cup some dimension.  If you are looking for an easy and wonderful teachers holiday gift, then you don't need to look further than these adorable cup holders.  Deena has many others in the store for you to choose from as well.  There are also a lot of new holiday items which she just put into the store so be sure to pop on over and see them all.

Merry Christmas Card Set with Ewe-N-Me Printables

 I am starting to get into the Christmas spirit.  I love these Printable Hang Tag Victorian Santa Post Cards.  You can find them along with lots of other wonderful goodness in the Ewe-N-Me Printables Store.

I cut the post cards up and put stickles on the tree Santa is holding and on the holly.  I love old fashioned Santa's and the idea of giving someone a box full of creative goodness is so fun.  These cards print up so perfectly and there are 8 to a sheet so you can use them for so many different things.  I popped up the post card to give it more dimension next to the flowers.  Thanks so much for looking and have a great day.

Holiday Door Banners

 Made some holiday banners for a friend and made a set for me too.  I love using my Silhouette cut files and fabric to create the designs.  She loved them and I just need to finish my set now.

 I have been hoarding these Tessa Ann Collection buttons for a long time and am glad to have a chance to use them.  Aren't they cute.  My friend loves snowmen so loved this one.

Ho, ho ho, a fun Santa one.

and last but not least Tom Turkey for the month of November.  Have to get him up soon.

Ewe-N-Me Printables Give Thanks Pillow Box

I love to host the holidays and bring some fun and color as well as a treat to the guests at my table.  I printed this Give Thanks pillow box and used some stickers to embellish it as a place card for my mom.
I think that these will look so lovely on each person's plate.  I am going to fill them with some chocolate truffles as a sweet take home treat.  They print up so gorgeous and can be embellished in so many ways.

This awesome printable is called Give Thanks Printable Pillow Box   There are also so many wonderful new items in the store that you just have to pop on over for a visit.

True Love Save the Date Layout

Love this wonderful Doodlebug line called Friendly Forest.  As many of you know my son is getting married 10/10/15 and these are the photos that the bride-to-be's good friend Micky Bedell took.  This line matches so perfectly with the photos which so beautifully capture the essence of them and their relationship.

House of Cards November Sketch Challenge

My boss lost her father-in-law suddenly this past week and I needed to make a sympathy card.  I wanted it to be pretty but not too much.  I am sending this off to her today.  Be sure to play along with the challenge

Happy Halloween M&M Cookie Mix

One of my best friend's daughter is at school and living in her own apartment while playing Division I field hockey which keeps her so busy.  She loves to bake but finding the time is hard with sports, her studies and a boyfriend.  I thought this would be a cute Halloween gift for her.  I love that you can get all different colors of M&M;s depending on the season.  You can make this jar for gifts all year round and just switch up the Ewe-N-Me Printables Jars Hang Tags to match the season or occasion.  

 Hang Tags - Halloween Jars
I love how cute this came out.  I used some Stickles to highlight the pumpkin on the tag and then on another tag cut out the cat and pumpkin and used some black Stickles on the cat and some Glossy Accents on the bow on his hat.  I found that it is better to put the Stickles on sparingly and then I used a QTip and wiped most of the glitter off so that you could still see the detail in the image.

I used my My Favorite Things dies again to punch out two circles for the top cover.  I love that when you buy this printable you get 8 tags on one sheet of paper.  I hope you try this recipe out and show us what you did.  You can find this and many other wonderful printables at the Ewe-N-Me Printables store.

Supplies Needed:
Wide Mouth Mason Jar
1 1/2 cups M&M's
1/4 cup white sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
Ice Cream Scoop (to pack down layers)

Recipe to attach to tag:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Pour contents into a bowl and mix well.  Work in 3/4 cup of softened butter with your hands until the mixture is crumbly.  In a separate bowl beat 1 tsp vanilla with 1 egg.  Mix wet ingredients into dry.  Place heaping Tablespoons on cookie sheet and bake 10-14 minutes.
