JR Week - Holiday Cheer

Hi all! Can you believe we're half way through the year already? That means, we're half way to Christmastime.....yikes! I can't hardly believe it. I'm totally in summer mode right now....warm weather, flip flops, trips to the beach, and all that fun stuff....but, I have some brand new JustRite stamps to show you....some Christmas stamps!



The set I want to show you today is called Holiday Cheer. I decided to make a little glassine treat bag....there's a yummy chocolate brownie-covered pretzel (store bought) inside. Mmmmmmm....yeah, you KNOW I'm thinking about tearing into it! The snowflake circle is up on foam tape and the edges are sponged with Old Olive ink. I added some Eucalyptus Stickles to the snowflake and the dots around the Merry Christmas sentiment.



All the new JustRite Christmas sets are available at Stamper's Dream. Be sure to stop by Karen and Amy's blogs today because they also have some Christmas projects to share with you.

I'll be back tomorrow with a JustRite Christmas card.

What a gorgeous way to present a treat for Christmas!!! I love the snowflake tag, beautiful ribbon and festive embossing on the bag, but how do you coat a pretzel with a brownie? I never heard of that before but it sounds like forbidden food LOL

This is just an awesome project. I LOVE IT. I hope you don't mind, but I would love to do this for the teachers Christmas gifts! I love the idea of embossing your bag! That big fat juicy ribbon is gorgeous on there too. I am going to head to the Justrite site and check all their new stuff....this could be trouble!

What a gorgeous Christmas treat bag!! Love the texture and that ribbon is yummy! Beautiful use of the new stamps too!!! It's so funny - we are in the middle of winter now and Christmas is scorching hot and more likely to be 100F than snow!! :)
