Avery Elle November Blog Hop


Hello!!  It's Avery Elle Blog Hop day and we're continuing the party that started last month with the new October/November release:)  I happen to be using the new stamp and coordinating die set, Cheers!  With the holiday season just around the corner (yup!), these stamps couldn't have arrived at a better time!  

 

My mama taught me that you never arrive to a party empty handed:)  But just because you have a store-bought gift, it doesn't mean you can't put your own personal touch on it.  I used these stamps and dies to dress up a bottle of wine with a quickie chalkboard wine tag and matching wine glass charms!  


The wine charms are just stamped pieces of scraps that I cut into rings with 2 circle dies.  I love how that stamp looks in white on all that colorful card stock.  Not only did I use up some scraps (yay!), but I created a fun and useful party favor.  Gotta love that:)  


Now it's time for you to hop on over to the next stop in the blog hop!  This is one of my favorite Avery Elle releases and I'm just loving what my teamies are doing:)  Go check them out!
