Blitsy's kickin off the shopping season a day early with a Giveaway.
The Blitsy Creative Team members have been busy making bows and gussying up our projects.  Who doesn't love perfect bows each and every time.  No more struggling because I have the Bow-It-All.  yeah!

This is the technique I used to make the perfect bow to wrap around my gift box - triple loops and all. 

Then I made a bow for a card to accompany my gift.

G45 Video Tutorial Using Raining Cats and Dogs At Blitsy Today

Blitsy has G45 Raining Cats and Dogs for Christmas?  Yep! 
( You can see the post and video here)

It's so easy to transform your everyday collections to gorgeous Christmas collections.  

The plaids, stripes, polka dots and rich color palette of Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs Collection inspired me to use the gorgeous paper for a Christmas project. What's super great about this collection is that you can get double the fun for my money. It's so easy to have this collection cross-over to the Holiday season.

I grabbed one of Graphic 45's cool Kraft Mixed Media Boxes (5in x 5in) as the base of my  gift set and let it bloom from there. 

The Mixed Media box comes with 6 photo mat cards. She converted them into a decorative wall piece to go inside the decorative box.

I  prepared a very short video (under 6 min) showing the transformation from plain to spectacular. This is a super simple way to "wow" someone with a handmade keepsake.  The video is only on the Blitsy Discover site  so hop over there using this link

You can see the entire post with close ups and super quick video here at Blitsy.  And grab some G45 Raining Cats and Dogs while you are there!
