Robot Gift Bag and Tag

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's linky party day over at Pause Dream Enjoy.  Today, Janis challenged us to make an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project!!  Here is what I created:




Recently our neighbours had a little boy.  I decided to make a gift bag and tag to hold our gift.  My daughter helped pick out the files that we used.  She chose a Too Cute by Jessica file called Cute Little Robots.  The paper is from Recollections and the button nose is from Walmart.

The challenge starts today and ends December 1st.  Please hop over to Pause Dream Enjoy, see what the rest of the Design Divas came up with, and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

No Peeking!!

Hi everyone, it's my day to share a project over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I have a super cute set of tags to share with you today.  Of course, I used one of Tara's amazing stamp sets to create my project!  Here it is:



Tis the season for gift giving, and I love to have a home made tag on every gift we give.  Tara's new stamp set Simply Christmas has some FABULOUS sentiments to use on tags, including this one.  

The tag shape is from the Silhouette Store #43403.  I created the shadow in Silhouette Studio.  The stocking is from SVG Cutting Files Kawaii Christmas.  I embossed the bottom of the tag with my Swiss Dots Embossing folder.  I masked off the little Santa head on the sentiment, which was easy as pie!  Below is a close up of the sentiment I chose, so you can see how fun the font is.



You can buy your own Simply Christmas in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop HERE.  Check out all of those great sentiments!  There is even a "To and From", for the tag makers among us!



Be sure to stop by Craftin Desert Divas everyday.  There is always something going on, from Linky Parties, to Blog Hops, from Stamp Releases to Daily Inspiration!  See you there :)

Santa Tag

Happy Monday everyone!  We are mid-way through the Linky Party over at Craftin Desert Divas and it is Team B's Day to inspire you.  Tara challenged us to create a TAG project.  Here is what I created:


Do ya love them?  I do!!  I am in full swing with my Christmas tag making...  I make at least a hundred every year.  I use them for every single gift we give and I have a few friends that I gift 20 or so tags to every year to put on their own family presents.  A set of tags, in a cute little box, actually make a lovely hostess or teacher gift too.



This tag is from the Silhouette Store #35160.  Once I put it together, I really didn't like something about it, and decided it needed a shadow, so I created one in Silhouette Studio, and am much happier with it now.

The sentiment, which is just perfection for this tag, is from Simply Christmas.  I know, I should have stamped it in red, to show off the cute candy cane stripe in the font, but it turns out I am way to boring to own red ink ;)  You can buy your own Simply Christmas set at the Craftin Desert Divas Store.


I hope you all come play with us!  There is still one week left to link up.  We have 2 amazing sponsors for this Linky Party:


  
1 stamp set of the winners choice


$25 in regular price files

I can't wait to see what you create!!

A Sweet Hello

Happy Saturday everyone!  It is my day to post a project over at the Cardz TV Gallery.  There is a new project there every day but Sunday.  You can find cards, layouts, 3-D projects, anything crafty!  Here is what I have to share today:



More often than not, I find myself hunting for some generic cards, ones I can use to send a teacher note, or drop a line to a neighbour.  I decided to stock up my supply.  I found this sunburst in the Silhouette Store #68598, and decided it could be the perfect base for my simple card.  The sentiment is from Ticket Talk 2.  It's a bright cheerful card that I could give to anyone for almost any reason.  Exactly what I was looking for.




I decided I liked these so much that I made 2 more fun cards, but they also use some Peachy Keen Stamps.




The sentiment on both cards is from Snail Mail.  I love just how different these cards look from the previous cards, even though they use the same silhouette file.


You can buy both stamp sets HERE.  Be sure to visit the Cardz TV Gallery every day, and prepare to be inspired!

A challenge or two for my little cards:
A Crafty Mess - anything goes
Brown Sugar - anything goes
Crafts 4 Eternity - bright colors
Lil Red Wagon - monochromatic

Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday everyone!  It's my day to create a project for Miss Kate Cuttables blog.  I am SO excited to share what I have created for today!



I decided to make a cute gift card holder.  My Dad's birthday was this weekend, and the kids always give him movie money.  You can find the cute cupcake I used HERE.  The gift card holder is a die from Miss Emma, over at My Creative Time.  The stamps came from 2 different Craftin Desert Divas sets:  Happy Celebrations and Simply Said.



Be sure to visit Miss Kate Cuttables blog every day!  She has amazing daily freebies and there is always a wonderful creation to inspire you!
