Here is what I have made to share with you...
I used a template from Creations by AR to create this votive candle holder. The image is from The Stamping Boutique from the Snowfriends image. The whole image was too big, so I cut the center snowman and used him. I colored the image with BIC Markits. I punched the snowflakes with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch. The DP on the roof and snowflakes is from The Paper Studio.
Here's a view from one of the other sides.
I also made this little notebook as a Secret Santa gift...
I used the Windmill image from The Stamping Boutique. I colored the image with BIC Markits. The DP is from Color Bok. The sticker is from my stash.
