Cocoa, Anyone??

This week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart is anything "cocoa" themed, whether it be the beverage, color, etc.  I thought I would share a hot chocolate pouch that I made for a craft show I participated in at the beginning of December.  Fortunately, (or unfortunately) they all sold and this is the only photo I have of it.  It isn't a good image as it doesn't show the true colors of the paper that I used.

I got the pattern from Paper Crafter's Library.  I believe it was from one of their 12 Weeks of Christmas Patterns that was sent to their subscribers.  (I can't find the pattern on their blog so it must have been for newsletter subscribers only.)

Materials used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Twilight cardstock
Wonderland Paper (retired)
Wonderland WOTG stamp set (retired)
A Sip stamp set (retired)
Silver ribbon (from my stash)

Snow Fun

Ok, it's been a really, really long time since I have posted anything to my blog.  Blogger has changed since I last posted that I have to figure out how to post items again!

Here is a layout I created that my gals will be making at an upcoming workshop later this month.  It features the beautiful Avonlea paper.  I love the teal paper that comes with this pack.

I am entering this layout in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for the week of January 7.  Their theme for the week is "Snow Much Fun".  Click on over and see the other "snowy" ideas!

Other items used in my layout include the following:

Stamps:  Flakey Friends, All Decked Out (retired)
Embellishments:  Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel, Twilight Markers, Ruby Markers, Clear Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Houndstooth Alphabet, Twilight Ink
