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 :)

A la prochaine...

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:

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!

Happy Harvest

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 BROWN AND ORANGE  project.  Here is what I created:



My daughter and I made a batch of Pumpkin Apple Muffins and decided to give some to our neighbors as a thank you for taking care of our home while we were away.  I decided to make a cute little tag to go along with our yummy muffins.  The acorn is from Create a Critter 2, and the tag is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  The cutie face is from Peachy Keen Stamps "In The Garden" set.  The chevron embossing folder is from Stampin Up, as are the little dots.  The patterned paper is from CTMH and the cardstock is from Recollections.  It was fun pulling out my Cricut again!


The sentiment is from Hey Pumpkin.  You can buy your own 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 prizes for this Linky Party:

Wise Men Seek Him

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



I just LOVE how this tag turned out, and I love how perfectly the sentiment works with it.  The tag shape is from the Silhouette Store #35733 - although I manipulated the dimensions a little bit.  The manger is from My Scrap Chick's Nativity Set.  I inked around the papers with some Tim H0ltz Distress Inks.   The patterned paper is old Creative Memories, I found it in my stash, the cardstock is CTMH, SU and Recollections.  The ribbon is from my LSS.

I masked off the majority of the stamp to isolate the sentiment I wanted to showcase. Masking the stamp was so much easier than I imagined and I think it shows just how versatile this set is!! Below is a close up of the sentiment, so you can see how perfect the font is.



I used Simply Holidays Wordart stamp set to create this project.  You can buy your own in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop HERE.




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 :)
