Today I have a some fun holiday treat ideas. These can be used for home baked goods, candies and even store bought items you re-package and add a little pizzazz too.
Lorraine does a lot of baking and has come up with some cute ideas to display and package her goodies. I love the way these cupcake flags came out. The Merry Thoughts stamp set was perfect for this. The stamp set is actually at a good discount right now.
The holiday season is full of good cheer. So how about jazzing up a wine bottle that so many of us give as gifts. Lesley did just that with a cute elf stamp. There is also the Wine Shop set which is perfect for wine tags.
Any candy makers out there? I usually bake cookies but I think this year I might try some spiced/candied pecans and caramels. They are some of my daughter's favorites and I have been wanting to make them. Emily did some cute packaging for her homemade caramel corn. The plastic box she used for her clusters was repurposed. Think about how you can use an empty container instead of tossing or recycling it.
Simone shared some adorable boxes she decorated and filled with some holiday treats. Today I am sharing some tea bag holders she created. Another set which is wonderful for the coffee & tea drinkers in your life is the Coffee & Tea Set.
Happy Cyber Monday everyone! Today is the last day for the specially priced stamps that started on Black Friday. You can view them here.
Today's post is full of cards! I even have a few guests sharing cards with us today.
The first guest is Jennifer McGuire! I first came to know Jennifer from www.twopeasinabucket.com when she was a Garden Girl. She was actually the first Garden Girl to order stamps from me. Jennifer mostly scrapbooked back then but she always liked to incorporate stamps into her layouts. Today Jennifer mostly creates wonderful stamped cards. If you are not familiar with her work you need to check out her blog.
Here are two cards Jennifer created with stamps from the new Winter Wishes!collection. The cards are colored using colored pencils. She created the awesome snowy background using a stencil and embossing paste.
The next two guests are favorite card makers of mine. I have shared cards from both Paula Williamson & Linda Heavens before. Their coloring skills blow me away. They both stepped down from the design teams they were on last year. However, they love Stacey's illustrations and always enjoy creating cards with them. Lucky me! us!
I thought I would share a few stamped gift ideas from the design team. I know many of you like to make hand made gifts to give during the holiday season. These can be great for teacher gifts, gift exchanges or to accompany another gift you might have purchased.
Any Project Lifer's out there? I really like the look and concept of Project Life. If you aren't familiar with this style of scrapbooking you can visit Beck Higgins website and learn more. You can also take a look at a few of Kelly Xenos's Project Life pages. I love the style of her pages and I am so happy to have her on the design team working with my stamps. Here are some of the first few pages Kelly has done with the stamps.
It will probably be a quiet few days on the blog here with Thanksgiving coming up. I have lots and lots of cooking to do. I hope to find a few minutes to set up some Black Friday specials for the weekend. Fingers crossed. I will have some great cards and stamped projects to show you all weekend long. Mark your calendars! In the meantime, here are a few to enjoy!
Happy Sunday everyone! I just got done adding more new stamps to the website. There is a great set called This Is December for those of you who do Project Life, December Daily and any other holiday scrapping. The set is perfect for cards as well!
This is December
How about a few new sentiments to spice up your collection?
Scripty Holiday Sentiments
There are also new holiday stamps from Carolyn Draws! Here are a few of them but visit the website to see the entire release.
I have also added a mounting product called Tack n' Peel to the website. It is a cling sheet that you use on your acrylic blocks for unmounted stamps. I have happily been using this for a little while now. You can see Therese use it here in one of her videos.
