Christmas Gifts & Cards Part 1

I know, it's been a LONG time since I've posted anything. I have been very unmotivated and kinda depressed with the crafting world! I knew I had to get back out there for Christmas, so here are some of the projects I've made so far for gifts!

First, the cards:

I decided to try my hand at making my own snowglobe card, so I used George to put this one together. Added on the cute bird from Jolly Holidays and voila!

I used my new Paper Trimmings on this one - love those cuts! Got out my glimmer mist for a snowy background and, once again, pulled a cut fox from Jolly Holidays!

Made my own simple round card and added on a cute teddy from Christmas Solutions.

I also made some coasters for the first time - so easy and fun - and they look so nice!

I used a 2x4 to create a desk block for my son's teacher. One side is personalized with her name, and the other side I put on this quote from Yoda:

I also created these bags for my son's teachers. I used the freezer paper method, and let me tell you, I love making stuff with that! I have done several things this year so far!
