Day 10 brings two passions together for me. Essential Oils & Papercrafts.
I made the tag using the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Layering Circle Framelits. I also used the Pretty Label Punch to make the Gold Foil topper with Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon. I have made some Bath salts with my Essential oils. I used Himalayan Salt, Epsom Salts, Bicarb Soda and some Young Living Lavender Essential Oil. This would make a great gift for the hard to buy for person that loves baths.
If you are interested in Essential oils you can contact me for further information. If you’d like to sign up to have an account then you can do that here. Signing up is a great way to get a discount on all your oils and to kick out those chemicals that are in the home. I’ve been using these oils for over 12 months now and am slowly changing over the chemicals in my house for natural products.
Day 7 brings these cute little bon bons made from the Year with Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I had a request for some boxes for a Christmas table that would hold 2-3 chocolates. This is what I found on YouTube. I love these little boxes so much that I’m going to make some for my Christmas table this year.
These are just two designs of from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper which is on the retiring list till its sold out.
I found a video on how to make these cure bon bons at Intertwyne Designs. They are so cute and I had to make them. There is a also a box that she made to fit 4 of these into.
For my Day 5 project I made up a jar with “Reindeer Noses” inside which are Malteasers and Jaffas. Its a cute little project that anyone would love. A great gift for kids too though maybe a bit too much chocolate.
I’ve used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Green Sprigs, Mini Ornaments & Black Shimmer Ribbon and purchased the glass jar from Kmart.
I’ve listed all the products used at the bottom of this post.

Last night I had the privilege of attending CentreStage which is a managers only event. This was only my second time attending,
It was a lovely night where we were able to see the new catalogue and products and receive some extra thank you gifts from Stampin’ Up!
I am unable to show very much at this point on what’s coming. You’ll need to have some patience.
My husband is at home holding the fort for me while I’m away and I’m very thankful for such a supportive husband.
While I was at the dinner, I sent him a couple of texts of my meal. He in turn sent photos of his meal.
Here is what I sent him…
And this is what he sent back to me…
It was a lovely night. If you’d like to join my team and have the opportunity to attend CentreStage then sign up with my ProCRAFTinators Team and you too could be spoilt like we were last night.
