Blogger: Sherry's Stampin and Scrapin in Naples, Italy - Create Post

Ciao Bella’s

My Family and I have arrived Safely back in the USA. Hinesville, Ga. to be specific, needless to say I am having some jet lag and culture shock . While I was flying back to the USA( all 10 hours) I was thinking of all Christmas gifts I wanted to create …. I really love the idea of doing a handmade Christmas this year and starting off the new year reconnecting with old friends and family since I have lived overseas for the last 10 years… But I was also a little bummed that my Stampin’ Up stuff will not arrive until after Christmas ….So what is a Stampin’ Bella to do? I went and checked my sister demo’s blogs….

This is from my sister Demo Connie Stewart, a message center , is it not the perfect gift for a neighbor or friend …. I’m going to Copy/paste from her blog , Simply Simple Stampin. I just love this message center , I think I will have to make one for myself ,when I get a new house ….

“This fun Message Center is another GREAT gift idea to give a friend! Anything made with the TOP NOTE DIE just makes me gitty!!! I used 5 Top Note Dies (there are 2 sandwiched together to hide the ribbon underneath) and I used the new NOTE TO SELF stamp set from the HOLIDAY MINI catalog! Item #116527 - $11.95 These can be done in any color combination to suit your friends cubical or kitchen! Again, you know how I LOVE gifts to come in affordable and this one qualifies! Only $2.00 to create this are way beauty!”

Oh My only $2.00 to make this cute gift …. I just may make extra for those moments that I need a little extra or emergency gift ….

Connie you are just too cool ….to see ALL of Connie’s great Projects check out her Blog,

So Andiamo,
