Gift Ideas

With Christmas right around the corner, it's always nice to have some little treats on hand for people you may have forgotten to buy for, or just for the sake of showing someone you care.   I like to have lots of extra little gifts ready to be given all year round but especially this time of the year.  Tammy and I will have lots of little gift ideas at the Christmas Marketplace this weekend.  We can help you find a little something for anyone but here are a few people to help you remember to buy for:
  • teachers
  • neighbours
  • coworkers
  • bus drivers
  • hostesses
  • babysitters
 Many of these gift ideas can also be treats to go along with gift cards.  I always like to give a little something when I give a gift card to make it feel just a little more special. 
Many of our gift ideas are even wrapped and ready!  You can't get any easier than that!  Be sure to stop by our booth (#76) at the Christmas Marketplace on Friday or Saturday and we'll help you get a nice dent in your Christmas gift giving list.

Have a creative day!

Snowflake Gift Card Holders and Tags

Good morning!  Today I am sharing with you what I did with the November My Paper Pumpkin kit. 
It came with enough supplies to make 12 of these tags.  I did one as it was meant to be and then created several more, very similar, except that I attached the white tag to the lost lagoon tag and then stamped the back of the tag. I also used one of the tags to create this card.
The kit also came with enough supplies to create 8 of these cards.
You untie the string and either side opens up to reveal the inside of the card.  I created one as intended and then switched it up and made the rest into gift card holders.
The top opens up to a pocket which you can tuck the gift card into.
I purposely left this blank with no greeting so that it would work for a winter birthday or for Christmas.  Gift cards are such a great gift but it makes them even more special if you present them in something pretty!  We will have lots of gift cards to choose from at our craft sale this weekend.  I hope you can stop by!

My Paper Pumpkin is a GREAT gift idea too.  Did you know that you can purchase a prepaid subscription and give it as a gift?  There are a few different options:

#137858  1-month subscription - $24.95
#137859 3-month subscription - $74.85
#137860 6-month subscription - $143.70 (save $1/month)
#137861 12-month subscription - $275.40 (save $2/month) and you get hostess benefits!!

Combining Project Life by Stampin' Up! with Traditional Scrapbooking

Good morning!  Sorry for my lack of posting the last couple days.  Things have been a bit hectic the last few days preparing for and holding classes. This pace will continue for another couple weeks and then there will be a bit of downtime.  I will continue to post as much as I can though - I have so much to share with you:)

Today's post was a combination PLxSU and traditional scrapbook page layout.  Sometimes photos just scream for a little extra something and I thought these were those photos.  I love these photos of my daughter and had to do a layout of just them.  I chose a few cards from the Playground card collection.  The name of this collection is a bit deceptive - there are so many cards in this kit that could be used for anything not just younger children as the name portrays.  Another thing to love about the PLxSU collection - their versatility - you really do need them all;)

Because I wanted to add a few more embellishments to dress up the pockets, I chose to use the Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating framelits and repeated the stamped flowers on the traditional layout on the right.  Even the words in this set were perfect for the photos.  I love it when that happens.
And here's a closer look at the traditional layout.
Are you interested in learning more about Project Life and how it can be used to help you get your photos into albums?  Join me at my information session from 12 to 1 on November 30th where I will show you just how easy and versatile it is!

Be sure to stop by on Monday for details of the Online Extravaganza!  Have a creative day!

What can you do with the Many Merry Stars Kit?

Good morning!  Today I thought I'd share with you a few ideas for the Many Merry Stars Kit.  If you are a regular blog visitor, you've heard me mention this kit before.  It's a great kit that includes everything you need to create 26 star boxes as shown in this photo.
 Many Merry Stars Kit:  #138104 - $31.95
There are a LOT of star boxes!  Want some ideas on what to do with the boxes? 
Christmas Ornaments
Place setting for your holiday dinner
Adorable little holiday trees
Dress up your gift packaging
Maybe you don't want to make up all the boxes?  I decided I had enough boxes after awhile and made some gift tags.  This makes the kit go even further!  All the supplies to create these tags came from the kit, after creating several boxes.
How about some holiday cards?
I absolutely love the versatility of this kit!  However, the kit is only available while supplies last so be sure to order yours today. 

Have a creative day!


Order your Many Merry Stars Kit here or send me an email, I can add one to my next order for you.

Scrapbook Saturday - 6x12 Layout

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing half a layout with you:)  Actually is a full layout but is only 6x12.  Because of the way I scrapbook, I occasionally have a couple single photos that just won't fit into a pocket or that I love too much to put into a pocket and want to create a layout for so that's when I create a 6x12 layout.  This one is of my sweet niece.
I used some strips of dsp to create the background and then a couple stamps to create the accent.  I love the Four Feathers stamp set - it's a great generic set. It came together quite quickly and just adds a little more emphasis to this adorable photo:)

Hope you have a creative day!
