Do you have a special calendar that sits on your desk or crafting table?  Do you fill it with great ideas to fill your schedule?

If not, I invite you to create one with me over the next 3 months starting on Tuesday, January 9, 2018.

We will start by creating pages for January, February, March and April and then do the next 4 months in February and finish up in March.

These pages measure 4″ wide by 6″ long so won’t take up too much space.  I’m excited to share this class with you and look forward to using several new stamp sets and accessories to add some extra pop to each page.

See my Class Calendar to Sign up and to also check out the rest of my schedule.

Take care and Happy Stamping!


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!


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 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.

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.

We had fun at class on Tuesday creating these cuties!

There’s nothing like a cute tag to wrap up some Halloween goodies for trick-or-treaters and I think these are very cute.  We made them using the Spooky Cat Bundle.

The 3″ x 6″Gusseted Cellophane Bags are just the right size to cuddle some sweet treat and you can find them Here.

Here’s the list for all of the products that we used.

If you are getting ready for all of the cute trick-or-treaters, I hope that these cuties give you some inspiration for packaging.

Happy Stamping!


Today’s post is not a card!  I decided to create some cute treat holders for the sweet trick or treaters who will be coming to our door in a couple of weeks instead!

The are little coffins – aren’t they cute?  I’ll share the template so you can create your own at the bottom of this post.  In the meantime, What Will you Stamp posted a challenge to use the Spooky Cat stamp set, and that is where the greeting comes from.

I used the Hardwood background stamp to add the wood grain to the Soft Suede coffin and also made good use of three new ribbons to decorate these cuties.

Here’s the list of products for you.

As promised, you can print off the template below to create your own little coffins.

Have a great time creating and Happy Stamping.


Hi and welcome.  Today’s post is all about gold and silver and a pretty gift box.


I loved the colour challenge posted by The Paper Players for this week and decided that creating this gift box was the way to go.  Who says you can’t use gold and silver at the same time!

The Christmas Magic and Thin of Tags stamp sets are going away very soon so this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  (See the Year-end Closeout items HERE)

Here’s another angle showing those pretty golden bells.


Yes, I cut each one out with my Paper Snips!

Notice the tiny dots?  I used the 1/8″ Hand-held punch and then glued each one on using the Fine-tip glue pen.


Here’s the full list of products that I used in case you’d like to try this yourself.  The White Gift Boxes are the perfect solution for small gifts or even some chocolate treats!

Do you have a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies?  Last week we got together to create some gifts for Christmas giving and made this jar of ingredients to make the best chocolate chip cookies.


What better stamp set to use than the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and the matching Candy Cane Lane designer paper!  The label measures 6″ x 5-1/2″ (folded at 2-3/4″) to hold the recipe for these delicious cookies.  Adding a candy cane is the “icing on the cookie”, LOL.

This is a simple gift to create – all you need is a quart jar to hold the ingredients.

Here’s the list of products that we used.

Give this a try and Happy Stamping!


Have you seen the White Gift boxes that are on page 7 of the Holiday Catalogue?  They are 3″ x 3″ and make great containers for small gifts, like candy.


I took the colours from The Paper Players challenge to create the flower on top.  It uses the Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy and Real Red perfectly.  I used the Festive Flower Builder Punch to create the flower and glued it all together with Liquid Multi-purpose glue.  It holds it together much better than the SNAIL adhesive.

Here’s another view.  There is a plastic sleeve that is made to slip over the box.


And, here’s a close-up of the festive flower.


I plan on filling this pretty box with Purdy’s chocolates for someone special.

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

Take care and Happy Stamping to you.
