BIRTHDAYS HAPPEN ANY TIME OF THE YEAR

We have a lot of birthdays that happen this time of the year and besides my eldest daughter, my husband also celebrates one!  So, I pulled out the oh, so cute This Little Piggy stamp set and made this.

Isn’t it cute?  I love this card because I was also able to show off some beautiful new Specialty Designer Paper called, Painted with Love.  It’s extra thick and has gold highlight in it.

I’ll show you the list of products that I used at the end of this post.

BE MERRY ORNAMENT KIT

Last night we put together these really, really pretty ornaments from the Be Merry Kit.

Aren’t they pretty?  One client suggested that you could substitute a photo of a family member to make them even more sweet for the Christmas tree!

The Be Merry Kit(144648) includes all the pieces that you need to put them all together.  All you have to add is a Hot Glue Gun!

This kit is going away on January 2, 2018 so you could order it now and have it ready to use for your Christmas 2018!

Happy Stamping!

LAST MINUTE GIFT CARD HOLDER

Are you rushing to get your Christmas shopping done?  I’m still doing the last-minute thing and needed a holder for a gift card.

The question was, what shape should it be?  I checked out Splitcoast Stampers and found this great tutorial for creating a coffee cup gift card holder.

I didn’t go as far as finishing it to look like a coffee cup because my gift card is from Canadian Tire.  Here’s how it looks open.

The Merry Little Labels stamp set came in very handy for this and, this stamp set is going away soon, so make sure to check out the Year-End Sale so you can add it to your shopping list.  Just a note, instead of fussing with cutting just the right size of designer paper, I simply applied SNAIL Adhesive to the cup shape, attached the paper and then cut along the edges with Paper Snips.  Much easier than fussing with measurements!

Here’s the full list of everything I used.

HAVE YOU STARTED YOUR CHRISTMAS BAKING YET?

Is Christmas baking a big deal in your home?  I find that I’ve backed off a little on that but I did do some “baking” on paper!  Let me show you.

Here we have some gingerbread people all lined up in a row, lol!  I scattered a few pearls around in hopes that it would look like I spilled a little icing, lol.  The Paper Players gave me the inspiration for this idea with their Christmas Baking theme for this week.  Now, I do think it’s time to get serious about some baking with some flour and butter etc!

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.  Just so you know, the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper is in the Year-End sale and is going away very soon.

Happy Stamping.

MERRY LITTLE TREAT BOXES

Have you started creating your gift tags and treat boxes yet?  I’m excited to host a class tonight where we will be creating 10 gift tags with a few tiny gift boxes using the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  Here’s a couple of them.

Aren’t they cute?!  I filled the Clear Tiny Treat box with M & M’s but you could add anything you want.  Creating Gift Tags is a great way to use up all of those scraps of designer paper that you have left.

Here’s the list of products that I used to give you an idea of what you will need to create your own.

REINDEER GAMES

Have you noticed the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set that’s on page 116 of the Annual Catalogue?  I haven’t used it for quite a while so pulled it out to add this cute Reindeer to today’s card!

 I started with a card base of Real Red embossed with the Holly Embossing Folder and went from there so I could play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This stamp set has a matching Punch to make it easier to cut out all of the cute images in the set.

IT’S TIME TO CREATE THOSE GIFT TAGS

Good day and I’m sharing the Mini Pizza Box with a bright gift tag for today’s project.

There was a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock on my table to it went into the Big Shot with the Layering Circles dies.  I didn’t stop there though, the Seasonal Layers and Card Front Builder dies were also calling, so we have snowflakes and a tree to add to this tag.

The greeting comes from the Seasonal Bells stamp set and I coloured it direct to stamp with a Real Red and Garden Green marker before it was cut out with Paper Snips.

All of this was put together using our Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The band for the Mini Pizza Box was cut to 1″ x 10″ and folded around the pizza box.  I attached the ends of the band using a small piece of our Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I plan on putting a gift card inside this box, but you could add some candy as the box is Food Safe!

Here’s the full list of everything that I used.

A COPPER CHRISTMAS

I played with some copper embossing powder for this card to send a shimmery Christmas greeting.

The layout came courtesy of Freshly Made Sketches and the Christmas Happiness and Seasonal Bells stamp sets.

I threw a couple of ideas around before settling on a Christmas card and am quite happy with the results.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.
