A joyful freebie and exploding gift box!

Oh my goodness can you believe it's December already!  I was hesitant to change the calendar this weekend.  Where has the year gone!  Christmas is just around the corner!  Are you ready?!  Maybe I can help!  I have several files that will make wonderful quick gifts for the special people in your life.  I will be showcasing them regularly on this blog over the next few weeks.  So please subscribe in the right hand column so you don't miss anything!

First up we have a delightfully festive way to share photographs by Kelly Stone.  (Thanks Kelly!) She used my Explosion Box, Build a Wreath, Christmas Word Charms, and Build  a Snowman files to showcase pics of her adorable son Alex!

 Here is what Kelly had to say about this wonderful present!  Scroll down to see more photos.
"All of the patterned papers are from a seasonal paper pad by Colorbok (Cloud 9 Design Harvest Holiday 2). The green ribbon is from Joann's. The snowflake is from the Build-a-Wreath file. Coated both sides with red Stickles. The 3D Tree was decorated with gems using my i-rock and I added yellow Stickles to the star. The green cardstock underneath the tree was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Christmas Word Charms. And the snowman is from the Build-a-Snowman file. I added Sparkly Fluff to look like a snow drift."

Below is a close up of the 3-D tree included in the Explosion Box file.   I just love the sparkle of those gems!
Below you can see how the layers all nest onto one another.  There is no need to glue them together as the lid keeps the box closed.  The layers explode open when the lid is removed.

I am working on getting files added to my new store.  Just in case you missed them check them out below.  Click on the previews to see them in my store.

Chevron seems to be a huge trend right now.  So I decided a Chevron Christmas was in order.  I think the stocking would look very cute as a gift tag..write the to and from on the brim of the stocking.  The present would work for birthday and anniversary cards too thus making this file more versatile..not just for Christmas!
These sentiments are perfect to add to those last minute cards that need to be mailed soon!

Okay now that you go through all my gabbing.  I will reward you with a Christmas freebie!  This tag is a quick accent to cards and gifts.  It matches well with my Chevron Christmas file.  It is also a nice reminder that we have sooo much to be joyful for this holiday season! 

Freebie No Longer Available!.  Keep in mind that this file though free still abides to my TOU included in the zip file.  Also, please send others to my blog to download the file.  This will motivate me to give you more freebies in the future. 

Well I've got some errands to run so I will catch up with you later!  Enjoy your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!  Please stop again!
