Made From Scratch Gift Tag

Nina Yang - Create Holidays Idea book 201310 - Made from Scratch Tag closeup

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a tag I made that was published in Create: Holidays Idea Book (October, 2013). It was made for Christmas but it certainly works for a handmade gift for Valentine’s Day or almost any occasion that you may have coming! I love, love cats! My cats love to play with anything that tangles and anything that they can scratch. Isn’t the sentiment perfect for a gift tag with a cat on it? How-to 1.

For You Wooden Gift Box


Hello everyone! Today’s project was also published in Paper Crafts Holiday Cards & More Vol.8. Here’s the link to a digital sneak peak of the issue. I bought a few wooden boxes for $1 each at Michael’s and thought it would be fun to customize them with some paper and stamps.

Grayson Card Drive + A Winner


Hello Everyone! I had some time this morning and made a couple cards for Grayson and his brother Aydan. You can read about the card drive Danielle started here. These are simple cards but I hope that they will bring a smile to the boys. I used the new Hero Arts Gold ink on the building silhouette in the super day card.
