Tutorial Tuesday: Quick & Simple Gift Tag

I really enjoy mixing and matching stamp sets to create a unique, one-of-a-kind piece.  Sometimes it's a pain, because then I have to own more than one stamp set, but sometimes, I just can't help myself!  Haha!  So, if you're like Moi, and have a whole repertoire of things in your arsenal, then this simple gift tag may just be right up your alley!

I welcomed a new neighbor to our street this month and I wanted to gift him and his family something useful.  Hand soap.  Everyone (hopefully!) washes their hands!  So I went to Bath & Body Works and picked up a few of their yummy scents and they gave me a perfect cellophane wrap, ribbon, and a gift tag.  Of course, I didn't use their gift tag---I made my own.  And you can, too!

Here's what it looked like:

I did use quite a few products for this gift tag, but I love how different elements came together, coordinated beautifully, and created this simple, but elegant, fun and whimsical gift tag.  (That's a lot of things one little tag can be, huh?)

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (2"x4")
  • Scrap of Lemon Lime Twist for 2-1/4" Scallop Circle
  • Scrap of Whisper White 
  • Scrap of Soft Sky Cardstock for 1-1/2" Circle
  • The first thing I did was use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and punch the top of my tag on the 2"x4" piece of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.  (I used the solid Pacific Point with polka dots.)
  • Next, I stamped the fancy outline from the Label Me Pretty Clear Stamp Set onto my scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the Pretty Label Punch to easily punch that out.
  • Using the "For You" sentiment from the So Many Shells Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamp the sentiment using Pacific Point Ink onto your scrap of Soft Sky Cardstock
    • Note: I seriously love the fonts and the sentiments in this set!  It is absolutely a must-have in your collection!!!
  • Use the 2-1/4" Scallop Circle and the 1-1/2" Circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and die-cut the scallop circle from Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and the solid circle around your stamped "For You" sentiment.
  • Layer the scalloped circle, pretty label, sentiment circle together using a Stampin' Dimensional between each layer.
  • Adhere the finished piece to the DSP tag and you're finished! 
Once I made my tag, I used the ribbon Bath & Body Works gave me to tie my finished product to the gift and it was a perfect presentation!  (Oh and my neighbor loved the gift!)  It's always fun to give people something one-of-a-kind; even if it's something as simple as a gift tag.  Try it and let me know how it goes for you!

See you soon, Friends!

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
