A Craft Smith Christmas 2014

It's the long awaited Eve of Christmas. I am going to make this blog post quick because I know many of you are with family and friend carrying out traditions today. But I bet a few of you are still procrastinating the cooking or cleaning and wanted to stop by the blog instead. ;) And I KNOW, you want to know who won our Craft Smith Christmas Giveaway!

Our random winner was chosen through Rafflecopter and the winner is Sue Kracker! Send me an email to claim your prize! erin@craftsmithco.com

Thank you, thank you from all of us at Craft Smith for entering in our giveaway and helping us spread the word about our new company. We really just wanted to do something for you to say THANK YOU for the support and sweet words you have given us these first couple of months! We are creating new products and doing this for you and I know 2015 will be a big year for all of us! We are so excited to have you along with us on the ride.

I'm not going to lie, I still have 1 gift to hand deliver...and a stop at the post office is necessary this morning. Whoops...I need to pick up some more butter before I start my tradition of watching "It's A Wonderful Life" as I make sugar cookies. Hey, even the best planners let things slip through the cracks! But before I do all that, I need to show you my last two projects that I made using the Craft Smith Holiday Glassine Paper!

I loved using this special paper, there really is nothing like it! The sheets have a waxy, thin, glossy texture that is so easy to work with. I hoping to see some different color combinations of this from Craft Smith...maybe even some gold foil on the sheets! Don't worry, I already put in my request. ;0

I love this cute tree, the texture and shine really make the project special. I cut small 1 inch x 4 inch strips of the paper, brought the ends together and hot glued them down to a foam cone. I kept a pattern of prints as I layered the rows on top of each other. A gold snowflake and red rosette made the perfect "tree topper". 

And it was so fun to wrap some of my big chocolate chip cookies in one the sheets. I put the cookie in the center of the paper and wrapped it up like a present. 3 cookies are individually wrapped and stacked in this photo, colored twine kept them all together. I love that these glassine sheets are food safe so I can use it to wrap and deliver all kinds of goodies. 

This was a great Craft Smith Christmas no doubt! I will miss playing with our holiday paper but I know we will be moving on to some more amazing products to work with as soon as 2015 starts! I will be back here on the blog right after New Years reporting on our new products that are hitting shelves as soon as that ball in Time Square drops. ;) 

The entire Craft Smith Family wishes you lots of love and crafting this holiday season!!!
