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
Directions:
  • 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: 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

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space? I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability. Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel
