Season's greetings everyone! Are you starting to get excited for Christmas??? I'm gonna put up my tree finally this week, and can't wait to see the kids' faces covered with excitement!
Today, you guys get a treat, 'cause it's normally on the first of every month that you see the new My Thoughts Exactly stamps - BUT I know how you've been anxiously waiting to see the newest release and also knowing that these stamps may make your life easier in all your holiday crafting projects, we decided to be super nice and release it out a few days early! (Don't expect this every month! lol...)
So, with this month's release, you are going to be seeing TWO sets - one being NON-SENTIMENT stamps! You're gonna love these! ANNND... although each set is $15 each, if you get two - it's $25 for the bundle! How can you resist???
The first one is the mix and match Holly Jolly Phrases - and again, Alyssa uses her magic into working these stamp set into a fun and practical set! Look at all the phrases here and various fonts in this set - isn't it fun? (This set is just in the works of getting them done, so it'll be a pre-order, but will be shipping out in 3~4 days!)
The second one is the Holly Jolly Tags - and comes with 5 fun tags that you can stamp away and personalize all your gifts! Even better - get BOTH sets, and use the sentiments from the first set on the tags! Belinda, from SVGs by Bee, is working on matching SVGs to go with these stamps, so all you have to do is to cut the tags out on your cutting machine and stamp them!
So, anyway, I'm sure you're wondering what I've whipped up this time around...
I used the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly (there's a matching paper pack, too here) and did print and cut with my Silhouette to create a cute little gift bag!
You like? This is actually really easy as long as you have Silhouette or any other cutting machine that has the print and cut capability. If you've been wanting to do this for the longest time - it's the perfect time to ask Santa :) This bag that I used is from Vintage Halloween Party Bags SVG Kit and this is always a easy go-to bag whenever you're looking for a simple cute bag!
Some close ups:
So, the tag that you see here is from the Holly Jolly Tags set. I stamped them onto two cardstock, and then cut out the white oval to place them onto the stamped blue cardstock. The rosettes are also from Vintage Halloween Party Bags SVG Kit.
Here's the skates on twine upclose:

... and that's not it! I've done the sides and the back! (sorry my photos are not crisp... had a hard time with this photo shoot... :( )
Lastly, here's the back:
... and the tag upclose:
I used the same technique to this - stamped them on three separate cardstock, cut out the area wanted in that color and assembled it together. The scallop circle is from SVGs by Bee's file, but she's madly working away at getting the proper sizing to make sure that it's no fuss for you to use! But for now, you get to see what it will look like with her SVG together with stamp! For all the customers that buys the tag set, you will be e-mailed with a downloadable SVG file for these tags shortly ;)
Anyway, here it is!
Now for the fun part! Alyssa, from My Thoughts Exactly, is giving away $5 gift card from each of our blogs! Make sure that you are a follower of my blog and hers, and comment here on this post to win! I'll be picking the winner this Thursday!
And... one last thing! If you LOVE these stamps - maybe you should consider applying for their design team position right now! Don't waste time, because the deadline is November 30th! It's a growing company and it's going to be exciting, especially with a new PRODUCT being announced in 2011! See this post to apply!
