last-minute gifts blog party | day five

I can’t believe how fast this week has gone!!!

Is it really Friday already?

Is it just me or does time just keep going by faster and faster???

This has just been such a fabulously fun time!
I’ve enjoyed reading all your fun gift ideas.
Thank you Aussies for sharing your Christmas traditions too.

Well, as sad as it is for this week to come to an end, let’s see one last set of some really great ideas!

Merry Christmas daaarrrrlinnng!

Okay, so I seriously want this sitting somewhere as a Christmas decoration!!

Shapes | / Label Fancy (free file) / Christmas Countdown (star, joy) / December Additions: The Extras (snowflake) / This+That: Winter (snowflake) / This+That: Family (tag). From Lori | Petal Top Box / Pizza Box / Box with Wavy Slip Lid / Bracket Closure Box / Adorable Box #2 / Award Ribbon Pinwheel. (SVGs on Lori’s site. Also in Silhouette store.)

Shapes | / Peace.Love.Joy. (free file) / Christmas Countdown (holly). From Lori | Bottle Label Tag (SVGs on Lori’s site. Also in Silhouette store.)

Okay, I want about 20 of those glittery snowflakes for my tree! And maybe that Joy too.
Wouldn’t they make great little gifts for people?
Love how those turned out! Love how it all turned out! :)

Thanks so much for showing us such fabulous ideas Nichol!

And go check out Nichol’s post HERE because she shares lots of tips
and is ALSO doing a giveaway!

I thought I also might mention, for those of you who are new here and because Nichol used a couple of these . . .  did you know that I have many more free files available? Just use the Categories/Freebies link above and you can find them all!

The will always be free too!

Gotta love that!

And now, how ’bout we pick a couple of these for the $50 gift cards!

I love these ideas and would be hard pushed to choose a favourite but I do think the gift cards are probably something I would use more often. I have just received my Silhouette Cameo (early Christmas present) and can’t wait to work out how to use it so gift vouchers would be most welcome :) Thanks for sharing and for the freebies :)

AMANDA J – DECEMBER 5, 2011 – 8:12 AM

Oooohh Love these! Can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of the week! My last minute gift, is usually very last minute, so I hit up the gas station for a mini stocking full of lottery tickets! :)

Congratulations ladies! Email me at and we’ll get ya all hooked up!

And last, but not least, here’s the final freebie for the week!

A fun little tag with a few words and a couple of stars.
You could also use the free tree or stocking on there too!

You can download it HERE for free today only!

This is no longer available as a freebie, but you’ll be able to get it in a kit at the end of the week! :)

Wow. This is been fantastic week!
I’ve been so inspired by all these wonderful ladies and I hope you have been too!

Be sure to check out Lori’s blog for one last party time over there too!

And . . . maybe check in tomorrow for one last little weekend surprise. ;)
