DesignTeamHeadshots-KimKesti The holiday season is certainly a busy one! Kim Kesti here sharing a quick and easy gift you can create for your child's teacher, a favorite hair dresser, or anyone on your "thank you" list. Kesti_CookieGift1 The supplies are minimal, you will need the Waffle Flower 100% Love Stamp Set along with the snowflake and string stamps from the Holiday Labels - Merry Stamp Set. I also used the Flower Circles Die Set (one of my favorite dies) to cut my pierced circles. Kesti_CookieGift2 Fold the stamped topper in half and add your cute little gift card (I die over these tiny Starbucks cups). I attached mine with a brad. Slip the pierced circle under your gift card and adhere. I love that this now looks like a tree ornament! Staple the finished topper to your cookie bag and you are done! I know a lot of folks on my list that would really enjoy this little cutie! Have a safe and wonderful holiday! Kim

Saying Thank You to Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine

on December 03, 2014
Hello everyone. I'm joining a group of crafters in a hop today to say thank you to a magazine that has brought us together: Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine. If you came from Bev's blog, you are right on track. say-thank-you-card   Since 2012, PCS has been a strong influence in my craft life. I like that it keeps up with the trends well and I can tell that a lot of time and care were put in each issue. I also appreciate that the team make the effort to build a craft community and organize events and activities. But the thing I am most thankful for PCS is the rejection I got from them. Every card remains annoynmous until it is accepted during the PCS selection process. I know none of the rejections (the cards I submitted but didn't get picked up) were personal, which got me to wonder why and how can I improve. It was a wonderful process of taking the challenge to submit, getting the feedback and then studying the cards that were selected. This process helped me improve my card making skills tremendously. It is also the rejections that gave me the thrill whenever I got a project or a few chosen for publication. I love that PCS presented craft techniques alongside design and style in a logical, systematic way. The PCS team has done an excellent job putting together each issue for us. I am truly grateful. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for PCS. It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this post. I believe there are many reasons that caused the magazine to cease publication. I wish the PCS team, Jennifer, Susan, Stacy, Kerri, Holly, Matt and Melinda, best of luck in carrying on with your lives. I'm sure each of you will be an excellent addition to any team or business. The creative seeds you have planted over the years will continue to grow and bloom. Thank you! Your next stop is Barb's blog.

A Simple Thank You Card & the Winners!

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a card I made last night and to announce the winners of our Instagram Thank You Giveaway. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card I was browsing our store and thought that I should make a real sample from our idea sheets. And I picked the very first one that came up: the idea sheet for 100% Love Stamp Set. This is a fun little 2"x3" set that can add a lot to our projects! 271016z 100 percent Love Stamp Set Idea Sheet I pulled out the set as well as the Surface - Tag Stamp Set that has the solid mini tag image to pick some colors. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-picking-colors I catalog all my ink colors on a 1 page color chart. I have multiple charts for each brand but you can also download a blank page for your own ink collection here: Download a blank hand color chart here. I first stamped the thank you circle on a piece of sticky note and cut out to use as a mask. Then I stamp the circle again on the front of my white card base. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-mask Put the mask on top of the other circle to "mask" it and stamp the tag image on top. Remember when masking, always stamp the image that will be on top first. wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-masking I used dye ink for the circle and the tag because they dry fast. Then I needed a pigment ink that will dry on top of the surface so the color can show up. Electric Pink for the tag string! wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-pigment-ink Then I finished the card with a sentiment "for everything" from our Tribal Thank You Stamp Set and a few hearts from 100% Love Stamp Set. Can't help but bling them up with a glitter pen! wfc-tiny-tag-thank-you-card-closeup And the sentiment is exactly what I want to say to you guys! Thank you for being excited, being supportive and helping us spread the word! You are the best! winner-announced
