The Countdown is on….

Only a few more days till the biggest gift-giving day of the year!  Maybe you’ve remembered just a couple more gifts you want to give, or you want a nice home-made touch to take a completely average gift up a notch to special or even spectacular.  Well, here’s a quick and easy way to do that.  Cute, home-made tags.  With minimal supplies.

It’s as simple as taking some ready made tags (or make your own if you don’t have any on hand), and use your punches, dies or electronic cutter (like a Silhouette or Cricut) to cut negative shapes from your tags.

I used some of my sentiment stamps to write the “to” and “from” but you could just as easily typewrite or hand print that part.

Then, a little bit of bakers twine and you are good to go, with a super simple but cute gift tag!

I hope you’re not too stressed with the coming holidays and are able to enjoy all the comforts and joys of spending time with friends and family!

Peace on Earth

Good morning.  Today is Day 11 of Liitd 12 Days of Christmas and random prize draws.  To be entered in our random prize draws, comment here on the blog posts each day and like our Facebook page and/or Instagram posts.  Tag us - #loveisinthedetailsdotca - on Facebook and/or Instagram with your Christmas creativity over these days to be entered as well.  Winners will be announced randomly throughout these 12 days.

Is everyone ready for Christmas? I guess that’s a bit of a loaded question.  I want to show you a group of clean and simple Christmas cards. I also wanted to use a die that isn’t a traditional Christmas die…. voila!  I grabbed the Tim Holtz Sizzix Globe thinlet die and cut some gold pearl paper.  I found this cut so much better when I used the precision base plate and the Prima Tool ‘n one.  It has a brush that you run over your die cut while it’s still in the die and it frees all the loose little bits.  Both the precision base plate and the tool ‘n one are great tools to have if you are cutting many dies. They will make your life so much easier.   I cut the word peace from black card stock and the Tim Holtz festive words dies. (again, thanks go to the tool ‘n one for getting the words out of the die in one piece)  The globe had to be cut down just a little bit to fit the layer of paper. I found it easiest to mount the globe on the layer and then cut it to fit the base layer of paper. (exact cuts that way)  I think this would work beautifully with the copper metallic paper in the store as well.

This is a beautiful clean and simple card that holds great sentiment. My wish this holiday season is that we all find peace on earth.
