Twelve Days of Christmas - Day Eleven (and a giveaway)!

For those of you just getting home from Black Friday shopping and those of you (like me) just waking up from your too-much-turkey-and-pie food coma - Happy day after Thanksgiving! Hope you had a wonderful time with family and friends. Now take a deep breath...the Christmas season is officially upon us! Thanks to the Xyron, Creative Imaginations and Design Memory Craft by Faber-Castell Design Teams I have been SO inspired these past two weeks - and this weekend is the perfect time to create some fabulous projects, so we've got some cute new ideas for you!

If this is not the cutest little gift ever I don't know what is. Christina Heeren created a little gift box with matching tea lights inside - the perfect hostess gift this holiday season! She has some great tips on her blog to help you create this project (and all the others we'll share today) on your own - thanks Christina!

I am a sucker for photo booths - but never know what to do with the photo strip.  Christina used a plain old glass vase to create a fun and easy holder that displays your photos beautifully!

If you know someone who loves handmade items but doesn't think they are "crafty" - this card and tag set would be a lovely gift. Christina shares a great technique for coloring your tags and embellishments on her blog today as well!

We want to help you create some of these gorgeous projects this season - so Xyron is giving away TWO prize packs that include a 2.5" create-a-sticker, our new Glue Stick for Corners, a Tape Runner and an Adhesive Eraser! There are two ways to enter - leave a comment here on the blog and/or hop on over to my Facebook page and leave a comment there. We'll pick a winner from each and I'll announce the names on my Facebook page tomorrow.

Did you miss out on Day Ten?  It was all about tags on the Creative Imaginations and Design Memory Craft blogs - there are some gorgeous ideas sure to inspire you.  Stay tuned tomorrow for one more day of fabulous projects!

  6. Oh yes, the corners definitely need something to keep them down. They are always sticking up and getting caught on the sleeves. These items would be a great birthday present for me to get started on my December scrapbooking!

  11. Thank you for this opportunity. Since paying attention to some of the You Tube videos I've been enlightened to the MANY uses of the xyron products and I love having them available. An eraser....what an innovation. I was looking for such an item, just yesterday as I was working on a card. Would love to win it and the entire package offered.
