Easter Treats

Hi, crafty friends. I have a couple of simple Easter treat bags to share today. These take very little time to pull together. I started by stamping THIS background stamp on to a plastic sandwich bag using THIS ink… I trimmed off the top portion of the bag. I die-cut THIS die from some patterned paper and stamped, colored, and cut out images from THIS adorable stamp set. I white heat embossed a sentiment...

Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 3

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday. Today’s cards features new products from Concord & 9th… I have to say that THIS stamp set was my favorite from the release. I think it’s because it reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in the 80’s and I remember having rainbow wallpaper in my bedroom.  It also reminds me of the rainbow care bear I dressed up as for Halloween when I was five. Every time...

St. Patrick’s Day Gift Basket

Hi, crafty friends. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought I’d share what I created for the teachers at my son’s school.

Mini Pizza Box Valentines

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today to share how I created these mini pizza box valentines… I’m always looking for unique ways to present a little gift.

I put my paper in my scoring tool horizontally and scored at 1 inch, 5.25 inches, 6.25...

Lip Balm Valentine Tags

Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing a few tags that feature a fun way to present a gift… THESE lip balm pouches are so fun.

I die-cut THIS coordinating lip balm pouch die in the center of the tag. I also did...

Ice Cream Gift Basket

Hello, crafty friends. Recently, I created an ice cream gift basket for a family as a gift and wanted to create something to add a handmade element to it. I thought THIS die would be perfect. I cut the die from a few pieces of felt and started stitching. I love how it turned out… I kept the cone part flat, just doubling up the layers. For the ice cream part, I stuffed it...

I plan on giving these to our delivery person who is bringing us packages daily in this freezing weather. I really like how simple these hot cocoa holders are.

It works perfectly since the...

Hi, there. How is your holiday prep going? I’m finding myself purchasing a lot of gift cards this year. I like gift cards because the recipient can purchase whatever they choose, but I’m always looking for fun ways to present them.
