Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Thursday *Edited to add the scut file link




The big story today-Lindsay is having a HUGE sale at her store until December 23rd! Buy any 2 sets, get a 3rd set of your choice absolutely free! So buy 4 sets, get 2 free, and so on.This is a fantastic deal, grab it while it's here-the perfect time to get those sets you have been eyeing!


Now, on to my project for this week:



I made these cute little cocoa packets for my son's class. I cut the mugs with SCAL, tied a ribbon around it (but no bow, 'cause that would be too girly ;-) ), added a cocoa packet, and a candy cane, and I will also be adding chocolate dipped spoons to each packet. I printed out enough of the "Hot Cocoa" digistamps for each packet, then colored them and punched them out with a circle punch. I punched out larger scalloped circles of complimentary patterned paper, and attached to the top of my packets with Glue Dots for the perfect little embellishments. These digistamps come in the Warm Winter digistamp set, along with some of the cutest little snowmen and women ever- check it out!


Thanks for stopping by-now I am off to bed for a while, for all crafts and no sleep makes an impatient mommy! Check out Lindsay's blog, she has a freebie for you, and she will have links to the other designers blogs for you to check out their fantastic Lindsay's Stamp Stuff projects (Hey, you can get some great ideas of what to do with the great sets you pick up ON SALE!). I know that I am headed to their blogs myself this afternoon-these gals are uber talented!

*You can download the scut file (made in SCAL1) for cutting 2 mugs at a time HERE
