Holiday Catalog 2016

Santa's Sleigh - Gift for my Mom

My mom is getting up there in age and she doesn't do much decorating for the holidays any;more.  It is just too difficult for her to drag out allthe holiday decorations and then put them away.  I wanted her to have something to look at so I made her this framed piece of art.

Santas_sleigh_frame

I copied it from page 24 of the Holiday Catalog.  I purchased my frame at Walmart and just followed the picture.  I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and layered "hills" I hand trimmed using Shimmery White as it is a bit less white.  I added glitter to the hills with my Fine Tip Glue Pen and our Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Santas_sleigh_frame_trees

I cut the trees out of Garden Green and Wild Wasabi and added some Mica Flakes to them. 

The reindeer are cut from Kraft Cardstock and I cut them again from Basic Black so I could trim off their hooves and add them to the Kraft reindeer. I aded bows of gold baker's twine and a mini jingle bell.

Santas_sleigh_frame_reindeer

The sleigh is cut from Gold Foil Sheets and the bow from the Silver Foil Sheets.

Santas_sleigh_frame_sleigh

I gave it to her last month when we drove home for Thanksgiving and she loved it.  Made me happy. :-)

Holiday Treats for Teachers

Here are some of the holiday treats I am making for my kids teachers.  They are getting older and have more than one teacher so I no longer make one big gift.

These went together quickly.  I used the Ghirardelli Minis Peppermint Bark candies.  I cut a 1-3/4 x 4-1/4 strip of Real Red cardstock and added the candies to the strip with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I slid it into one of our 2 x 8 cello bags.  I wrapped the 2 x 4 belly band around the treat and added a fussy cut gingerbread house or a reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.

Merry Tags Valentine!

What, did I title this post Merry Tags Valentine?  Yes, I did!!  The Merry Tags Framelits are on sale this month for 50% off!!!  This price is while supplies last so hurry over to MY STORE and get yours!

I used the medallion ornament as a layering piece for this Valentine's Day Card.

Tin_of_tags_loveThere are lots of things on this card that are on sale:

Tin Of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set
$21.00
$16.80

I die cut the fancy ornament out of Basic Black and trimmed off the ornament hanger.  I also die cut the solid ornament from Whisper White and cut the hanger off of that piece too.  I layered them together and added a heart cut from Bushing Bride Glimmer Paper.

I cropped a scallop circle from Melon Mambo to place behind the ornament, I used the #5 scallop.  You can download a printable sizing chart for all of our layering framelits. Download Layering_framelits_sizes

The greeting is from the Tin of Tags stamp set and I inked it in Memento Tuxedo Black and added a few Melon Mambo sequin hearts to make it pop.

Birthday Gift in a Bag

A Birthday Gift in a bag?  A cello bag that is.  Here's a quick gift packaging option for a bottle of wine, champagne, sparkling cider, any beverage that comes in a bottle.  Use our NEW 6 x 17 Gusseted Cello Bags.  These bags are perfect for bottles, homemade treats (they are food safe) or gifts.  Just pop the treat or gift into one of these shiny cellophane bags, tie it closed with some of our fabulous ribbon and add a stamped tag. There are 25 bags in the package and they are gusseted so they expand to hold more.

Big_cello_wine1

I slipped my bottle of wine into the bag and tied it closed with some coordinating ribbon, the 1/8" Stitched Melon Mambo was the perfect match to the label. :-)  I grabbed the large "happy birthday" image from the Watercolor Words set and inked it in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I cropped the greeting with the #6 oval and added a #6 scalloped oval in Melon Mambo behind it. 

Layering_framelits_ovals1I have a file for you noting the die sizes of all three sets of our Layering Framelits-----> Download Layering_framelits_sizes

Big_cello_wine

I punched a hole in the tag, threaded the ribbon through it and tied it in a bow.  The last bit of fun was a Melon Mambo Enamel Heart.

Halloween Night Treats!

Here are some adorable treats that use the 3x6 Gusseted Cello Bags, Halloween Night Baker's Twine, Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper, Gold Binder Clips and the Spooky Fun Bundle.

Purchase the Spooky Fun Bundle which includes the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits and you will save 10%!!   Spooky Fun Photopolymer Bundle [144437]

Halloween_night_treats1
You start with a 2-7/8 x 9 strip of the Halloween Night DSP and score it at 1", 3" and 7-3/4".  Fold on all the score lines and while holding onto the front edge, slip it into one of the 3x6 Cello Bags.  Use a small piece of Scotch Tape to secure the seam on the bottom.  The top 1-1/4" will be outside the bag and you will fold it to the front and attach your decorative piece to this after you add a bit of shred and some treats. 

Halloween_night_treat_closeMy decorative piece consists of a #6 circle cut from our NEW Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and a #7 scallop circle cut from Basic Black.

Download Layering_framelits_sizes

The tree is cut from Basic Black and the fence is cut from our NEW Copper Foil Sheets.

I added the fence and tree to the Glimmer circle and trimmed off the excess.  Notice that I let the limbs of the tree hang over on the left edge, looks pretty cool!!

I stamped the bat and gravestones in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Basic Gray Cardstock and cropped them with dies from the same set.

I tied both Baker's Twine colors to the top of the Gold Binder Clip.
