Christmas Muslin bags

Pin It
Here's a great way to wrap those little gifts.  Have you tried stampin on muslin bags yet.  The trick is to put a clear block inside.  These are available for a few more days.  Right now I would like to fill it with some coal for one of my kids for Christmas!

Melted Snowman

Pin It
Here is a quick neighbor/friend gift. Pull out some fleece and sew a tube, then gather the top and snip to fray for the hats. The noses were made with simply pressed clay. It is perfect because of it's light weight. You can color it with your reinkers too. Beware of the cold.  Our little noses had a hard time staying on when the waters got cold.

Frosted Finishes Jewery

Pin It
Need a last minute gift? Pull out those Frosted Finishes embellishments. Simply attach the snowflakes to earring backs and a little jump ring for a necklace. Voila, you are done!

Digital Gift Tags

Pin It
Are you about ready for Christmas yet? I am getting close. I don't know about you, but I like my tags to match the wrapping paper for my gifts. I found this cute paper from Costco, so time to make some tags.  Usually I go the old fashioned way and pull out my stamps and background paper.  This time I tried something a little simpler.  You can make some too, just use your MDS! I didn't include my tags a a download because I figured they wouldn't match anyone else's paper.  I hope this inspires you to make some of your own!

Santa Soda/ Jingle Juice

Pin It We couldn't decide on a name, so we did both!
Just sew some little hats for a bottle of Strawberry Crush, add a belt and some buttons and you are good to go! I think one of these would be so cute left out for Santa on Christmas eve! Remember this hint when you make the belt...punch the square first , then the curly label.  You will be happy you did :)

Deer Beer

Pin It
Need a little Deer Beer tonight? It's just root beer :) We used Apothecary Accents, circles and Autumn Accents dies to form his face, then punched an oval to slide over the neck of the bottle. Then of course add a bit of texture. Below are the tags that we put on them. You can download them HERE

Christ trees/ Paint Stick trees

Pin It
Here is one of the projects we have been working on.  
What a great way to remember Christ this Christmas! 
The steps are simple...cut 5 Home Depot paint sticks. Yes, they need to be from Home Depot. I will spare you the details, but we tried other sticks. Cut one stick into a 2" and 7". Another stick, 3" and 6".  Another stick, 4"  and 5" one at 8" and the last at 9". You will also need a 3-1/2" block and an 18" dowel.  
We cut 4 sheets of DSP (Designer Series Paper) to 8-1/2 x 11 so they would fit in our printer. Download the words with lines HERE , without lines HEREThen we cut the words in strips and mixed the papers up. That will give you enough words for 8 trees. You could do all of the words the same color instead of mixing up the pages and get 2 trees out of one page.   Every bodies favorite was the one made with Mocha Morning paper, so added the paper to the download if you want to print it in color. You can do that HERE.  The sheep we found at Walmart, but anything would work. The pictures on the front we bought in a pack of 100 for $2.00, you can order those HERE. Any star till work on the top.  We love the one we used, that of course is from Stampin' Up!

JOY Banner

Pin It
Sorry about our absence. We have been busy making tons of cute stuff to sell at a couple of craft shows.
 I am sure you are busy getting out all of your holiday decor. If all the other banners haven't inspired you to make your own banner yet.  This might.  It is very similar to the other joy banner we made, but what i love about this one is that the stencil was turned sideways. Have fun decking your halls!

Happy New Year Drink

Pin It
Happy New Year Drink is what my son called Martinelli's Sparkling Cider when he was little. It's funny that we still call it that. Now I know I's a little bit too early for posting things for the new year, but the stamp was very similar to the post I did last. I love how the silver foil sheets look when you use them in an embossing folder. The 1-1/4" circle punch fit perfect on this bottle.

Oh Holy Night tag

Pin It
You can never have too many tags. The base of the tag was cut at 5-1/2 x 3. So it's pretty big. It would be so cute on a box or a bag. The labels die was cut in half and spread apart behind the stamped image.

Christmas "Gift" card

Pin It
Love how simple this card is. (I probably say that a lot, because I only put cards on that I like, and I like simple) It looks like a card I could make 100 of for Christmas.

Seasonal Stripes Album

I call this "No Brain" scrap booking.  Who has any energy left after the holidays anyways. I am excited to put pictures in mine. I think I will get a couple for gifts too. Perfect for my sister in-laws that say they can't scrapbook. (Nope, they don't follow the blog)

Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags

Thankful Banner

Pin It
Ready for some Thanksgiving Decor. This one is super easy.  We used vanilla cardstock circle to put the letters on.  You don't need too because there is a circle built into the stencils. The reason i put the letters on another circle was because I was trying to get some some depth. This banner cost about $10 to make once you add all the buttons and ribbon. The colors on this one are Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight.

Extra note cards from the Everyday Occasions Card kit

Pin It
If you made all of your cards from the Everyday Occations kit, you might have a lot of pieces left, like me.  I made 12 more cards by adding 3, 3x6 pieces of Calypso coral, whisper white, pool party and Island Indigo to make 12 more note cards with pieces to spare, still! Notice the calypso chevron piece, that was from the wrapping in the box. Below are the cards that come in the box.
