Christmas Dinner and a bit of Romance!

Happy Wednesday, and what a treat I have to share with you today!! With Christmas upon us, the design team has been busy, busy creating fun and festive projects. Take a look at what some of our ladies have created to spice up your Christmas table, plus a bonus...a romantic night with your special honey!

Dessert Place Setting
By Gabrielle Pollacco

Supplies Used: Crush, Hot Lips Die Cut, Crush Love, 6x6 paper pad, Crush Noteworthy, Pink Parfait Petals, Love Shack flowers, Black Lace trim, Crush Pink Ruffle Wraps, Crush Chipboard, Crush Brads, Crush Glitter Dimensional sticker

Other Supplies: Cake ~ Store bought, ha! lol!

Designer's Note: I'm planning to share a tutorial later this month on how to make little folded gift boxes from the 6x6 paper pad as seen in this photo.

Noel Place Setting
By Carin McDonough

Supplies Used: Noel Cheer, Noel Ornaments, Noel Rejoice, Noel Stripe, Holly Berry Wrap, Cranberry Rose Trim, and Double Dot Ribbon Olive

Other Supplies: Edger punches, Liquid pearls, beads

Holiday Silverware Setting
By Sarah Eclavea

Supplies Used: Noel Paper, Noel Holly paper, Noel Joy paper, Noel Cheer paper, Noel Ornaments paper, Noel Rejoice paper, Noel Traditions paper, Noel Noteworthy, Noel 12 x 12 cardstock stickers, Bo Bunny double dot ribbon, Bo Bunny buttons and bling

Designer's Note: Use a stocking template to trace onto patterned paper. Adhere two of the stockings together using a strong liquid adhesive to form a pocket. Place silver ware into each stocking and place on each plate at the table. Or stuff the stockings with a treat for each of your guests. Use left over ribbon and holiday decorations to decorate each stocking.

Kid's Holiday Place Setting
By Robbie Herring

Supplies Used: Double Dot Paper Wasabi, Double Dot Paper Chocolate Dot, Double Dot Ribbon Kiwi Dot, Bo Bunny Buttons and Bling, Olivia Chocolate Ruffle Wrap.

Designer's Note: The Holly Leaves were made by cutting holly leaves out of the Olivia Wrap. I love the texture of the wrap and thought it was perfect for my holly leaves.

Have a great day!!
