Need a Quick Stocking Stuffer?

I’m collecting stocking stuffers for my “kids” for Christmas.  I say kids in quotes because they are both in college, yet they still like to find their stockings stuffed full on Christmas morning.  It’s just tradition!  That means that I spend the weeks before Christmas searching for those clever little things that they will find useful, without breaking the bank.… Read More »

15 Minutes a Day Gets You Ready For Christmas!

I aspire to be one of those organized people that spends just a few minutes a day working toward a goal.  As kids in school, whenever a project or paper was assigned to us, we were taught to break it down into small chunks and do a little each day.  In theory, if I just make a couple cards, tags… Read More »

How to Make a Christmas Card in Less Than 10 Minutes!

I loved how fast this card was to make!  It’s such a busy time of year that it’s difficult to squeeze that relaxing crafting time in.  This card made that easy to do!  Again, I’m using my scraps of left over paper.  If I use all of my Christmas paper up on projects this year, I can most… Read More »

Apothecary Accents Make Beautiful Tags!

By now I imagine that you can tell that I like a burgundy red and green Christmas!  I had a little more of the Christmas paper left and decided to make some more tags.  I love the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder that I received in my last Stampin’ Up! order.  It looks like Pointsettias!  By using two punches of… Read More »

Christmas Bag and Tags with the Petite Pennant Builder Punch!!

I have to say that I’m really enjoying making my gift bags for the holidays. The possibilities are endless!  I love to design and create matching tag and bag decorations.  Today I did very little stamping.  I used my paper scraps and my punches. I have to say, I’ve never met a punch that I didn’t love and… Read More »
