Christmas Gift Tags Day 1

Hello Kre8tors! Today we are talking about Christmas Gift Tags. I usually leave these to the last minute, because I don’t always know how many gifts I’m giving. I typically do all of my shopping before I wrap and tag my packages. So I need some super simple and fast tags that I can whip up in a few minutes, especially for those days when I just procrastinate a little too long!

This week I will be rolling out a series of tag videos to help inspire you to get your tags made. There are several different styles which all feature a little unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This first tag of the week was a lot of fun to make. I ran one of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies on Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot and layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler or Garden Green cardstock scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped my sentiment from Tidings All Around onto the Very Vanilla circle. Then I used the greenery stamp from the same set and stamped it in Garden Green on the top and bottom of the circle. I used the little dots that look like berries and stamped them in Cherry Cobbler on top of the greenery pieces.

I punched a whole at the top of the tag, and then stamped the To and From stamp from the same stamp set onto the back. I threaded some Garden Green Stitched Ribbon and Real Red Ruched Ribbon through the small whole, cut angles on the ends, and then used some Linen Thread to cinch down around the ribbon. This allows for some thread tails to tie onto the packages without wasting a lot of the beautiful ribbon.

I absolutely love the way these tags turned out! They are so festive and would look beautiful on so many different wrapped packages. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite tag style is,
round or rectangle?

Stamper’s Showcase 2019 Holiday Catalog Favorites

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

The project I decided to create is an adorable paper box from the gorgeous Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. These boxes are super fun and quick to put together! In my YouTube tutorial, I show you how to calculate your measurements so that you can make a variety of sizes!

I like to have options when creating my boxes and think they look so cute on the plates at a beautifully set table for the holidays. You can put in a couple of chocolates, maybe some lottery tickets, or just cute notes to your family and friends. What would you put inside?

The length and width of all the boxes I made here are 3″ x 3″ and vary in height, with the tallest measuring 2-1/2″. You can make them so you can’t see the bottom part of the box, or make a shorter lid and a taller base so you can see the contrast. There are just so many options!

I really hope you enjoyed this project, and would love to see your boxes after you give them a try! Tag me on Instagram (@MKre8tions) so that I can share your beautiful projects!

For my project today I’ve decided to go 3D with the most ADORABLE clamshell box ever! I CASE’d this 2″ square box from Crafty Caroline Creates and gave it an update with the beautiful Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. I absolutely love how it turned out and can’t wait to make more!

The clamshell portion of this little box can be a bit tricky, so I’ve made a template for you to view. You can download a copy of the template by clicking here.

The way this box comes together is both clever and adorable, with the inner box being a fun surprise and pop of color! There are so many fun things you can do with a box like this, such as stocking stuffer, guest place holders at a nice dinner, party favors, and so much more! What would you use this box for?

August 2019 Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Holiday Catalog

 

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

This month we are sharing Holiday Catalog projects! The new catalog will be available for customers to order from on September 4, so we hope you enjoy all of this cheerful inspiration to fuel your wish list! I decided to pre-order the Toile Tidings Suite Bundle, which came with not one, but TWO stamp sets with coordinating dies, two rolls of Ribbon, one pack of DSP, one pack of Gift Wrap, and some Glitter Enamel Dots. This bundle of products is perfect for coordinating multiple projects as well as all of your holiday cards!

I just love the cardinal, and wanted to make sure my first project was with him. I absolutely ADORE this bird, and think he came out really well. I watercolored the branch he sits upon, and a little bit of him as well. You can check out how I put this all together in my video tutorial below.

I CASE’d (Copy And Share Everything) the catalog to make this card, and so glad I did because I learned a lot about how to best use these products and what tricks I can use on my future cards. The bow turned out beautiful! There are so many different bow tying methods, but this one is my favorite. I show you how I achieve this bow in my video tutorial.

Nature Inspired Card

I’m so excited about this card because it’s Nature Inspired! I’ve paired Winter Woods with Rooted in Nature to bring you this fun card. I used the Stamparatus to get a beautifully stamped background, and to get a sentiment rich in color! This card is a free make and take I am demonstrating at a charitable event, Let’s Stamp Out Hunger, on Saturday, April 6th!

I love how this card turned out, and I especially love the embossed background! I used the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on half of the card base. I have a great tip for embossing the front of your card. Check out my video at the link below to see how I did it!

I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the leaves, although on this sample my Wink of Stella got a little carried away! Be careful you don’t add too much. Although it kind of has a fun look to it, what do you think?

This card would definitely look beautiful in any color combination, but Crumb Cake and Garden Green really make all the textures on this card stand out! I love how the Stamparatus works so beautifully with the birch trees stamp from Winter Woods!

And that Burlap Ribbon adds a lot of spunk to this nature inspired card. I just can’t get over how much I am in love with this card! Be sure to watch my video below to find out how I put this card together, and to see a fun time lapse of me prepping some materials for the free make and takes for the fundraising event.

Let’s Stamp Out Hunger is an all day crafting event with several demonstrators providing Make and Takes throughout the day. There are raffles, door prizes, and a silent auction. All of the proceeds go straight to the Clatsop Emergency Food Bank. Our event is the largest fundraiser for the food bank and we are in our fourth year! If you’d like to donate, you can find that information in the Donate section of our website by clicking the image above.

Crumb Cake Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Garden Green Mat: 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Whisper White: 2-1/4″ x 4″ + Scrap for Sentiment
