If Kisses Were Snowflakes...

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you are all ready for this busy weekend.  Do you have all your gifts wrapped, is the shopping done?  How about dinner for the holidays... is everything planned out?  Well I am almost done.  My shopping is done, wrapping is done.  Bean and I are going to bake on Saturday.  Blarney Stones and fudge...maybe even Oreo cookie balls.  Today I have a festive tag for you using products from Crafter's Companion and Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I have used the sentiment from the Sentimentals Set-Let It Snow from Crafter's Companion.  I stamped it in Versa Mark ink and then used white embossing powder.  It really turned out great on the green cardstock.

Thanks for joining me today!  Enjoy your Friday!

Sparkly Thank You

Welcome to all my followers and friends here at Jax Bean Stalks. Hope you have done some holiday shopping with Christmas just around the corner. Don't forget to wrap all your pretty packages up with some fabulous ribbon!!! ;)

 Today I have a Thank you card. I have used super sparkly Glitz Fuchsia Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It finishes any card or project off with a POP!

I have used the 8 X 6 Stencil from Crafter's Companion- Eiffel Tower.  I stenciled it with Memento Ink and then Versa Mark clear.  I used clear embossing powder and it is super shiny in the light.  The sentiment is also CC and is from the Friends and Family Sentimentals EZ Mount Stamp Set.  We are having our Thank You Challenge at the Crafters Companion FB page.  POP on over and let us see what type of "thank you" cards you do this time of year.

My entire card is framed with pink matting.  I have used the Perfect Paper Crafting-Perfect Layers to create a PERFECT matting!.

Thanks for joining me today!

Advent 2014 And A Giveaway!

Hello to all my friends and followers!  Today I have a fun post about how I do Advent for Bean.  I don't do anything religious or there isn't really any meaning behind ours...we do it for FUN.  When I was little my mom had a stacked Advent for my sister and I.  It had tiny cardboard boxes that were numbered.  She used to build a necklace or bracelet for us every year.  We LOVED it.  It is hard to build anything for a boy.  It get harder and harder (and more expensive) every year.  This year his Advent is filled with ornaments, Christmas movies, nutcrackers and nutcracker themed crafts.  It also has several novelty chocolate covered potato chips, pirouette cookies, Nerds holiday candies.

This year I used Santa lunch bags and Chevron Little Bitty Bags from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  They are the 2.75" X 4".  They were the perfect size for the ornaments and some of the smaller novelty items.  I added my own hand written numbers (to include in my December Daily) I think it is important for our children to see our handwriting...even if you think it is bad, they will forever connect you to your writting (boy or girl).

My mulit part question for you you do Advent?  When do you start?  I start on December 1st.  It makes for a nice 24 gifts.  AND What kind of items do you give?  I will choose 1 random winner to receive a 5 pack of the Chevron bags, and an assortment of Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I will run this giveaway till Sunday, December 7th.  Winner announced on Monday.
