I can fully attest to the joy giving brings to you. Today, I have the pleasure of hosting a second Holiday Goodness Giveaway with another one of my favorite companies-Sizzix!
Author Jo Packham has a fabulous new line of die cuts with Sizzix, and to celebrate we are giving away 2 of her Where Women Cook Sizzix dies- The house box and The milk carton box- and a set of her 4 Where Women Create books.

I had so much crafting with the 2 new Where Women Cook Sizzix dies.
As a consummate recycler, I have a big stash of Christmas cards, some were given to me and some I have purchased in bulk at the thrift store that I'm sure were part of someone's card stash. That is what I used to make this cute little house ornament.
I used a Thomas Kinkade card with a cute little guy and snow scene to make the sides of the house with the house box die.
For the roof, I used white glitter cardstock. To make the hanger, I simply poked a re-bent paperclip.
I used the same white glitter cardstock to make the milk carton box.
To add a bow to the box, I punched two holes in the top flaps. And for the tag, I used a Sizzix mitten die cut and another Christmas card.
I'm looking forward to making more boxes for upcoming holidays!
I love to hear what designers and authors have to say about their creative process and business. Take a moment to hear about Jo's world.

Everything goes with ice cream - yet we understand that the perfect dessert for all of us is not always a big bowl of ice cream. Not everyone loves ice cream, as hard as it is to believe! Which is why Everything Goes with Ice Cream is the book for all of us. It does, of course, have the easy-to-make homemade ice cream, but it also has 176 pages filled with other ideas for making a summertime snack covered in made-from-scratch sea blue candy sprinkles; s'mores and hot chocolate for winter; or an ooey gooey dessert whose magic ingredient is, of course, chunky chocolate fresh raspberry ice cream. Simple projects fill the pages too, including tiny candles made in tea cups, miniature no-sew cake banners, party pom poms, heart-shaped button covers for a special party blouse, and so many more.
