We are getting to the time of year where we need to be thinking about Christmas gifts, and packaging for them. Some people can be difficult to buy for, and if you want that perfect gift, we all know a gift card fits every size!!
Fall has arrived, but (thankfully!) we still have some beautiful summer-like days in store, at least where I am!! Fall inspires us with the beautiful coloured leaves, deeper hues in our clothing, and rich coloured decorations.
I had so much fun preparing for our wedding. It was a very “paper-crafted” wedding, with lots of handmade decor that reflected the joy MSH (My Sweet Husband) and I felt as we shared our vows with family and friends. These were the table favours and name place cards I made for each of our guests.
Have you started your Christmas wrapping? Why not upcycle some bags you have around with some of the cute Designer Series Paper we have. There are lots of different ones to choose from, such as the Santa’s Workshop SDSP I used for my bag.
When I sat in my craft studio to create the projects for today’s post, I just wanted to make some tags. We are at the point where we are wrapping and tagging gifts to go under the tree, so here are some gift tags to inspire your crafting.
Yesterday was my sister Patrice’s birthday, and her son’s decided to surprise her with a dinner of 35-40 of her closest friends and family! It wasn’t a milestone birthday, because they figured that would never surprise her, but it is always fun to celebrate your special day, no matter what the age. Here is the birthday card I made for her.
I have been busy creating and crafting and want to share some projects that you will see more details on in upcoming blog posts, classes and tutorials. These projects feature and celebrate our gorgeous Designer Series Paper .
Yesterday we celebrated my daughter's birthday, so now I can post this super fast and easy upcycle project for you. My daughter loves everything from Bath and Body Works, and I must admit that I really like them too. In addition to their wonderful products, they have super cute bags with a blue check pattern. The bags also include a great big logo, so they are not perfect to use as a gift bag as is, but that is easy to fix.
When I was invited to my very first Stampin' Up! Workshop, I had no idea what to expect. While I had done crafts all my life, I had never really done any stamping, or made my own greeting cards. I really hadn't done a lot of papercrafting of any type. We made a Christmas card that was lovely, but then . . . we made a Bagalope. We turned a plain white envelope into a beautiful gift bag. . . and it was easy to do!!
