Sharing is Best!

It's that time of year again! Time for Fall/Halloween/Christmas ideas from the Stampendous Design Team! We've been busy for the last several months creating lots of samples with the great new stamps and stencils that were released in July and are so happy to share them with you! I did share this one right as these were released, but it's the perfect project for this week's theme of "Baked Just For You!". 
I love making lots and lots of cookies during the Christmas season. It's really the only time of year that I do so much baking any more. While my family would like to hoard them, I like to share them with everyone, so the new Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamp and Die Set made me very happy! Here's a cute way to share cookies with teachers, friends, mailman, whoever!
