I have one final Christmas project to show you. My wonderful upline and friend, Tracy, made me this gorgeous cane heart ornament for my home. Photos do not do it justice!!

Here is the final box of the series. Seeing as it is only 79 sleeps until Christmas (Aahhhh!!), I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas box as well. And there are such nice papers to choose from this year, so I need to try them all out!!
I used my favourite Labels Collection Framelits to mat the Heart of Christmas stamp from the Holiday Catalogue. You can just see it in the photo that I have used the Festive paper piercing pack on the Real Red layer. Looks really nice!! The snow flake is from Snow Flurry Die. You would never know it was hiding a little ink spot!!
The cards are following the same template as the other boxes. I’ve uused the Candelight Christmas Specialty DSP from the Holiday Catalogue. This paper is very nice and it includes two flocked window sheets which are very luxurious!! The Holiday Ornaments Framelits make cutting out the ornaments so easy! No more dodgy hand cutting for me! I also love the font on the Greetings of the Season stamp set. Very elegant.
I hope you have enjoyed the box that I made from Tanya’s tutorial.

There are lots of interesting new items tucked away in the new 2012-2013 Catalogue. Each time I look through, I find something new! I recently discovered the Kraft Gift boxes on page 161. They are $4.95 for 4 boxes which is a great price!
I watched Patty Stamps video here as inspiration for my box. I have used one of the new sticky rounds to attach the rosette to the top of the box which made it really easy to stick it firmly to the box. I have stamped the box using Snowflake Soiree stamp set. The greeting on the front of the box is Heart of Christmas and I have used the Apothecary Accents framelits for the shape. You can’t see it well in the photo but I have put a Vintage Faceted designer button and place a pearl jewel in the middle.
