IS Candy Bags

This year I have a new job with lots of co-workers that I love. I want to make them all a little something but there are over 30 of them and I have not been feeling well with this first trimester sickness stuff. So I came up with these and I am hoping to have them all done by next week.
I kept them very simple and used an easy to cut out stamp set by Inspired Stamps. I used a circle punch and scallop punch to easily cut the Christmas Circle stamp set out.

To cut the toppers out I used two different dies. The top is my favorite bag topper die from Jaded Blossom Stamps. However, it is not cheap and I am so I waited for a sale. The bottom is a good alternative with are Spellbinder dies that I folded in half. I cut the decorative piece of paper to fit the front.

I hope your year is coming to a close on a good note. This has been a year of many great things and many trials for my husband and I. After four years of trying to have a baby I am finally successfully pregnant. I wish I could say this was our first pregnancy but unfortunately we had a miscarriage this year. So to be able to go to the doctor and see a healthy fetus growing was the most amazing thing. This year has been the hardest probably of my life. God has his reasons for everything and works at his own time. I thank him everyday, even though I make be puking at the time, for this chance. Don't give up on your dreams.

Head on over to Inspired Stamps and check out all the other beautiful creations.
