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

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape  has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid  eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*. And just like clothing, one size and one style does not  fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best  for your eyes! Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes: Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best! Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, ther
