OSAT Season of Cheer Blog Hop

Happy Thursday to you all! This week has sure blown by! Taryn leaves for a church youth retreat tomorrow morning and Wesley leaves for the football teams away game tomorrow. They are giving the boys a brunch before sending them on their way, so I have to whip up 2 dozen muffins! Wesley has requested these pumpkin muffins that were one of the first recipes I tried from Pinterest. They are just a box of yellow cake mix and a can of pumpkin. Sometimes I spruce them up with a bit of pumpkin pie spice. All three kids really enjoy them.
Today I am back with my friends and crew from the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop! We are hopping with the theme "Season Of Cheer", so if your holiday spirit is lacking, this hop is sure to get you feeling jolly again! I decided to pair up the Encircled in Warmth with the Heart Warming Hugs DSP for a fun home décor project and a simple little gift card holder, Lets take a look!

I just love how these projects turned out! I dwelled on the card for hours. The juices weren't flowing and I was pressed for time. I still, no matter what I try, am a master procrastinator! How do I fix this!? My wooden spool Christmas Tree is amazing and maybe why the juices weren't ever flowing! I used 11 spools. A painted one in brown for the trunk and the rest wrapped in assorted patterns from the Heart Warming Hugs DSP. It is accented with a bow of the Real Red Ruffled Ribbon and a stitched star of the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.

This gift card holder started with the sentiment made with the Encircled in Warmth stamp set and my Stampin' Write Markers in Pear Pizzazz and Real Red. It is die cut with the largest label in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. This fun little gift card holder sits on a piece of Pear Pizzazz that is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". This was then matted with Real Red and the pocket feature made of Crumb Cake. I added a bit of the Heart Warming Hugs DSP and the Real Red Sheer Ribbon to keep it closed. You can see the inside below.

The sentiment is attached to the top flap with a few dimensionals. I then accented the label with some Wonderful Gems.  This is the perfect kind of Gift Card Holder for mailing this holiday season!
