Home for the Holidays & An Olive Story

I am excited to share the Home for the Holidays Paper Pumpkin kit with you today!! I had a chance to sit down and create these colorful holiday cards.

I really wanted to do an unboxing video of this adorable Paper Pumpkin Kit – Home for the Holidays, however, Olive had other ideas.

Olive is my Treeing Walker Coonhound, and she is usually sleeping next to my desk when I’m crafting. I setup my lighting, my phone to record the video and got the video started. I was halfway through creating the first card when she woke up. She smelled the stinky skunk outside and insisted on investigating. After investigating she was ready to get back in her bed when she started to reverse sneeze. If you’ve never heard a dog reverse sneeze its quite alarming the first time. By this time she settled back down at least 45 minutes had passed and it was getting late so I stopped recording for the evening.

Fast foward a week, I tried again to record a video for you and guess what?? Yup, it happened again. Olive woke up and insisted on sniffing all around the desk, nudging my arm to make her presense known and decided she needed to go out to sniff the air. I’m still working on editing the video and I hope it’s useable.

I didnt want to wait any longer to share the cards with you. They are so cute and easy to create. My favorite element in this kit is the glitter glue. It adds a subtle touch of sparkle, and I do love a little sparkle. These cards have lots of vibrant color and dimension too. Aren’t they cute?!

Luv 2 Stamp Group Blog Hop- Gift Tags

Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s Blog Hop! are excited to share our projects with you again this year. We hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects. Each month we will have a different theme based on the next month’s celebrations using Stampin’ Up! products.

Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants, you can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line. Happy crafting! This month’s theme is Gift Tags!

Gift tags are one of my favorite projects to make so I was super excited for today’s Blog Hop! After a Luv 2 Stamp Group Team event earlier this month I had some left over Beary Christmas Suite products, which I used to create my gift tags.

My grandmother always used the previous years Christmas cards she receive to make her gift tags. This inspired me to use a cardbase for my tags from the Beary Christmas Memories & More Cards and Envelopes. I cut 2″ off the end of each side of the cardbase, and then cut each of these strips in half. I then cut the center of the cardbase on the long side into 3 pieces at 2″. Click here to download the PDF with the measurements.

These 3 gift tags are created using the center pieces of the cardbase with the scoreline so they open. I used the stickers from the Beary Christmas Memories & More Cards Pack, and the Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins to decorate them. I punched a hole in the top let corner to thread in the gold Simply Elegant Trim .

These next 4 gift tags were created using the end pieces of the cardbase. I used the Very Best Trio Punch to create the tag top and added a touch of bling with the Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins. Each of these tags were created using several different products from the Beary Christmas Suite.

I fussy cut the image for this tag from one the cards in the Beary Christmas Memories & More Card Pack, the sentiment is a sticker.

For this tag I stamped the snowflake image and tree from the Beary Christmas Bundle. I heat embossed the snow flakes and white on the tree. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red and fussy cut.

This tag is decorated with the sticker and the sentiment is stamped in Real Red ink.

The polar bear is punched from the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper using the Beary Cute Punch. I added one of the stickers to the bottom of the tag to match the bears sweater and stamped the sentiment.

I used the Spruced Up Stamp set to stamp the To: and From: in Real Red ink. This retired set is still available in the Clearance Rack for $12.50, such a great deal!
