Handmade Holiday Surprises

Christmas is over, but I couldn't go without sharing some of the wonderful handmade goodies I received from very talented crafty friends this year!

This adorable Christmas card and refrigerator  coaster calendar set was created by a very sweet friend, Karen from Have A Scrappy Day blog. Adorbs, right? Karen is the master of setting up the cutest little scenes with her stamped images and die cutting. She is also the person who has inspired me into making yearly refrigerator calendars for giving too!

This holiday trio of goodies comes from none other than my crafting bestie, Kris. 

Her holiday card this year was an ah-mazing window/pop up card  with a photo of her beautiful kids.

And how about this super cool snow globe box starring none other than her favorite Pochacco! Cutting file for this 3D snowglobe comes from the Lori Whitlock store, which Kris very cleverly altered into a treat it!

Here's the little paper pieced penguin Kris put together to adorn the gift bag...isn't he just too adorable?

My dear friend Lorna was hard at work in her Christmas workshop this year too! 

I think you'll agree that Lorna's Christmas tree on a car has got to be the cleverest treat box ever! Super duper cute, right? And I really love her embossed golden stocking with washi paper accent. The front of this very pretty stocking treat box actually opens up like a card!

This pretty pair of packages embellished with matching bows and lace were created by sweet Gwen...
pulling up on the bow reveals a gift box with a surprise gift card! Wow, love the stamped images and all the details that went into creating these innovative gift card holders.

From our friend Heather's home bakery...the cutest  (and yummiest) Christmas cookies we look forward to every year. Look, star shaped cookies decorated as Santa with M & M buttons and noses!

And finally, this beautiful swing style Christmas card from Bev, who recently told me she's "not into crafting". Uh, huh, Bev...yeah right.
Many, many thanks to everyone who worked so hard this year to create such special holiday treasures!
