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!

Spring Break Reading Week…

Yeah, I know it’s fall an’ all, (the local kids are on their fall break from school) but this pile of photos from last year’s trip to Florida were just asking to be scrapped so what was I to do??


I wanted to use my recently acquired Tim Holtz alpha dies which are slightly larger than his first set released and mess with some molding paste.


I started by laying out the dies onto a piece of card stock and taping them in place in order to run through my Big Shot.  It was then I realized how useful a 12″ wide die cut machine would be!  I might have laid the words out differently had I not been restricted by the 6″ width of the Big Shot rollers.  Tim Holtz, if you’re listening to us, here’s your chance to change the world!!

But anyway.

Once the quote was cut out of the card stock, I used that as a stencil for my molding paste.  I smooshed it onto a 12″x12″ piece of watercolor paper that I had already painted in colors to match the patterned paper I planned to use.  All of the papers and stickers on this layout are from the Kaisercraft Fiesta collection and there is much yumminess in this pack!





After a summer of physical labor and very little book reading, this layout makes me want to look at flights to Florida again!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Leave us a comment please, and tell us what you’re reading these days!
