Week #88 in The Shabby Tea Room

Welcome to another fun week at The Shabby Tea Room. This week Melissa is our host and she asks us to create a card or project with a holiday theme and to use the colors from this beautiul inspiration photo.

"A Shabby Pastel Christmas"

I love everything about this photo: the colors, the delicious cupcakes and cookies, and the beautiful flowers.


Our wonderful sponsor this week is Designs by AR.
She has so many wonderful templates and other great products.
The winner of this week's challenge will win 2 templates!


For my project I used the Carry All template. I just love this template. I have a large collection of templates and I have to say that they aren't all user friendly. This template from Designs by AR was super easy to assemble and everything lined up like it should! It went together effortlessly. I used a Scalloped Oval nestability die to cut the 'handle' openings.
I stamped the cream CS with the Background Basics Tin Types stamp set from Papertrey Ink. The snowflakes are Papertrey Ink dies covered with glitter. The sentiment is Hero Arts.
This little tote measures 4 1/2 " tall, 4" wide and 1 1/8" deep. It's the perfect size for a pair of socks or other small gift item. I'll be making lots of these for Christmas! And if you give a gift to someone early in the season they will be able to re-use the pretty package.
Click on over to the other Shabby Girls' blogs to see the beautiful creations they have waiting for you.




Have a great week - I hope you find time to join us for this festive challenge:)
