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!

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

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: Fold Over Gift Box

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!  I hope that your week is going well!  Can you believe that August is half-way over??  I have seen lots of Social Media posts about kids already going back to school; the kids in my area go back next week!  Eek!  I imagine that means that there's a lot of last minute shopping, meal-planning, and organization happening for many households.  (Or all households, really.  I mean, everyone has shopping, meal-planning, and organization to do!) Well, I'd like to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that you may be able to utilize for this busy Back-to-School Rush!  I shared it with a group of ladies a couple weeks ago at a Crop Event and it was huge hit! This multi-purpose Gift Box is super versatile!  You can use it if you want to present your kiddo's new teacher with a little summin'-summin' to start the year off, as a special way to present a home-baked cookie treat to a loved one in their lunchbox, or if you need a vessel to hold some
