Hello everyone! I am sharing a Neighbor’s Gift idea for Christmas and a quick How-to on the 3d star tag over on Pebbles’s Blog today. I would like to share how to make the 3d tree tag here. Diecut three trees from dot paper; score and fold them in half. Run the folded trees through a Xyron sticker maker as shown. I used a stylus to press along the tree shapes to rub away the excess adhesive before I peeled the clear sheet off. Easy, right? Check out the full project on the Pebbles Blog here. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Hello everyone! Welcome to Avery Elle November design team blog hop! I’m sharing some fun ways to create gift bags with Texture Tiles: Be Cute stamp set! A gift bag look was what I had in mind when adding the dotted line and the solid line stamps to the set. I also created the scalloped border for this card with the same dotted line. Sentiment is from Simply Tags: Everyday. I designed the texture tiles to be rectangles for achieving more looks with one stamp. Using the same swiss dot pattern, I created this tall gift bag: I used the bow stamp from Laurels. Try tying a bow with ribbon or replacing the bow with a button for different looks! Sentiment and hearts are also from Simply Tags: Everyday. Find more uses for Texture Tiles here, here and here. To celebrate our October/November Release Blog Hop, Avery Elle is giving away a […]
Hello everyone! Popped in to share a tag I made for GCD Studios. Supplies: All paper from Sunkissed 6×6 paper pad #2069; flower, tag and sentiment stickers from Sunkissed Labels #2071; blue border from Sunkissed Borders #2074. I started with a tag sticker and a cool strip pattern from the 6×6 pad. I cut out the flower on the right, punched out another flower from the circle sticker and cut out the center to stack them together for a dimensional look. I then backed the tag with some white cardstock, adhered the border and cut out. Feel free to complete the sentiment to say “Sending You Sunshine” or “Hello Sunshine”. They both go well with the theme. What do you think? ;) Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone! Welcome to my preview post for the new Avery Elle release! Someone pinch me, please! Two of the new sets were put together by me! I am so grateful for Jamie, the owner of Avery Elle, for the opportunity! I am thrilled! I don’t fancy myself as a designer. As you will see, both of my sets are simple. I guess my “creative input” was the “function”, the idea of things working together. I packed as much as I could in them and tried to make them versatile and fun to play. I had too many ideas that I had to break my post into three days: Day 1: Avery Elle – Simply Tags: Everyday (Tags, Gifts and Cards) <– You’re Here! Day 2: Avery Elle – June Release Blog Hop (Cards) Day 3: Avery Elle – Behind the Scenes (Tip Sheet, Sketches, Techniques and More Tags) I’ve always wanted a simple gift tag […]
Hello everyone! Welcome to the blog hop celebrating the release of the latest special issue of Paper Crafts Magazine: 350 Cards & Gifts Volume 2 (print / digital) I hope that you’ve enjoyed the inspiration over on Paper Crafts blog and Moxie Fab World over the week? I love shopping for gifts and packaging them. I would like to share a simple gift wrapping idea I use a lot in real life, using recycled paper sack and packing paper. HOW-TO Make your own 3D flower bow from packing paper: Stack 8-12 layers of paper together and run the stack through a die cut machine with a scalloped circled die; poke a hole in the middle and secure the stack with a brad; crackle the paper (I used a shimmer spray to wet the paper first) and divide the layers to form the flower. Alternatively, hand cut circles from paper instead of […]

Hello everyone! I have a 3D project to share today! Desktop Cube Calendar! It can be a great gift to give during the new year or just some happy craft time alone or with your kids! It was quick and easy to adhere the stickers to the cubes but the dimensional stickers I used ended up making one of the cubes taller than the others: So I turned to my trusty stamps! You can see clearly on this kraft/white version that I made my own cubes (find my 2-min video tutorial here and original post here, using the exactly same mesurements as stated in the video but close the bottom with an extra piece of 2×2 paper instead of leaving it open.) Recipe 1. 2″ craft cubes or cardstocks for making your own (tutorial as linked above) 2. Stickers (flat ones recommended, make sure you have at least 5 As) […]
