Paper Sweeties January Inspiration Challenge #27 - 'Winter Wishes'

Hi everyone :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I cannot believe it is already 2015!! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve!!! :)


Today is the release of our latest challenge at Paper Sweeties :) 

I was inspired by the square banner from our challenge

I was also inspired by Audrey's Hot Cocoa pockets she made :) 

I made these for mine and Brian's co-workers for Christmas :) 



On these I used MME papers and Simple Stories tags :) 




On each pocket -- I used the snowflake stamp, the "A Gift For You" stamp and the "Holiday Hugs" stamp from Paper Sweeties :)


Inside each pocket is a Hot Cocoa Packet :)







These were made with Authentique papers and "The Hobby House" tags :)






These were made with Authentique papers and Webster's Pages tags :) 









Here is our inspiration for this challenge :) 



And here are the other Design Team members that are also sharing a project for the latest challenge :)


January Guest Designer:  Beth Johnson
