Christmas is just around the corner

Oh my how time is just flying by so fast, it's October already. Christmas is just around the corner.
I just finished making a large paper parol that I sell on my etsy shop. anelascreations.etsy.com.
My paper parols are made to order. I have small, medium and large sizes. The small is about 3.5 x 6 inches, medium size is about 6 x 9 inches. Both small and medium sizes can be ornaments. The large size one can be a door decor or a window decor. Shown below is about 11 x 24 inches in size.

Pocket Letter for A Creative Journey with Melissa: 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I am so excited that I am finally able to make another pocket letter project. I have been so busy creating these past two years that have neglected my blog.

I created these pocket letters using Coffee, Tea and Wine, OH-MY! stamp by A Creative Journey with Melissa. I used Spellbinders Coffee dies and I used mostly my scraps from Kaisercraft and Bobunny don't ask me which ones since I don't know, since I don't remember the name of the collection and when I got them.

Back to my creation. Here's the image of the stamp I used:

Here's the finished project. Hope you like it. Please do comment below on what you think.
Also please do come join in the blog. Start here, by clicking on my project. I will take you to

OK since my last post last April last year, I have been so busy, between my etsy store, SMS and A Creative Journey with Melissa Design Team, I have been busy but a lot busier when Stacey my boss and mentor started her new lines of dies and stamps. Keeping my fingers crossed, I plan for this new year is to have  better time management. Wish me Luck.

Below are projects I have created using Stacey's Simply Defined and Simply Refined Products:
