Christmas Favor Boxes (featured @ So Creative blog)

It's the holiday season and I was thinking...hmmmm....  What kind of crafty gift can I create and give to a few friends?  Here's what I came up with...

Christmas Favor Boxes

Each one is full of "bite size" candy and the perfect treat for all of the people that I see regularly.  I also created a little tag, used my single hole punch to punch a hole and tied it on with curly ribbon (so they'd know it was from little ol' me).  I handed these out today and they were a big hit.  Everyone loved my little candy boxes.  These can also be used as party favors or even hang them on the Christmas tree as ornaments, better yet, drop them in Christmas stockings.  When Valentine's day rolls around stuff them with sweet sayings (or more candy) for your hubby or loved ones. 

This is my first batch of Christmas favor boxes. I'm planning to make more for the family.  I'll hand them out on Christmas Day along with their other gifts...can't wait to see eveyone's smiling faces.

Have a Merry Christmas!!!

GUESS WHAT!!!!!  These cute, little, Christmas favors were featured over at the So Creative blog.  Yaaaaaay, exciting!

Happy Crafting,

Digital Scrapbook Software Giveaway

My Memories contacted me and asked if I'd tryout their digital scrapbook software.  Ahhhh, Yeah!  I couldn't wait for some free time to play around with the layouts and create my own digital scrapbook pages.  I luv, luv, luv this software! 

And guess what...(drum roll please) they're even giving away a My Memories Suite software package to one of  my crafty readers (yep, that's you).

I am sooo excited, but that's not all!!!  My Memories is also offering a $10 discount on the purchase of the My Memories Suite and a $10 coupon for the My Memories store.  That's a $20 value and just in time for Christmas!  This is the perfect Christmas gift for your favorite crafter.

Check out some of the layouts I completed...

This was so much fun and it was easy, too.  There are plenty of layouts included with software, so you'll be able to start scrapbooking as soon as you get your software.  I chose a few of my personal pictures and dropped them into the screen.  You even have the option to use WordArt, change up the embellishments, the color, papers, background, add brads, flowers and stitching.  There's also an option to add music and narration.  There's so much you can do with this software.  But you'll have to enter to win so you can have the same fun that I did.

Here's how to enter to win:
  1. Become a "Confessions of a Paper-Crafts Chick" follower with Google Friend Connect (on the right sidebar) and leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me that you're a follower. (This is the only required entry.)
