12 Crafts of Christmas - Day 4 -

For the 4th day of Christmas (yes, I am still 2 days behind, but I am just going to go later in Christmas rater than post several times in one day) I have a quick and easy shaker card.
Queen and Co kits are the easiest way to make shakers and I especially love these ornaments!
To see how easy it is to create this card with TWO shakers on it, check out the video!

Check out the supplies below and I'll see you back here tomorrow!

12 Crafts of Christmas - Day 3 - DIY Gold Dipped Gift Tags

For the third day of 12 crafts of Christmas (which was actually two days ago, but it has been A WEEK) I have a quick and easy way to create your very own gold dipped tags. You know, the ones that at the store are SO expensive!
Sometimes when I see a DIY project I get overwhelmed and it feels easier to just spend the money and buy whatever I am supposed to make. But I love this little DIY because it is so easy and looks so cool.
I hope you will check out the video and give this little project a try! All the supplies I used are listed below. Thanks for stopping by!

Waffle Flower December Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Waffle Flower's December Release Blog Hop! The stamps this month are SO cute. I can't wait for you all to get your hands on them and share how you use them!
Let me share a little bit more about this release!
Waffle Flower's 2018 December release is sweet and simple. Halftone Background stamp set features a gradient of dots that can be overlapped and stamped in two colors to create the look of a blended background. In this release you will also find the lovely Thinking of You stamp set featuring the same girl from our Always stamp set hugging the cutest cat ever. The Cookie Love Stamp Set (stampdiecombo), illustrated by Big Bear and Bird, is perfect for anyone wanting to send some love or get a jump on their Valentine’s cards! And the 2x3 Lettuce stamp set (stampdiecombo) offers a cute punny greeting for a friend.

Now, how about I share a couple of cards I created with this adorable release! First up is the Thinking of You Stamp Set. 

I am no colorist, but I had so much fun coloring in this sweet girl and her cat!
Then I combined the Halftone Background stamp with Lettuce Be Friends on a Tag and on a small circle shaped card! 
The little lettuce seriously cracks me up!
I also used the Halftone Background to create a snowy look for this little card:
Don't forget that you can save by grabbing the whole release as a bundle!

12 Crafts of Christmas - Day 1 - Stocking Stuffers and Small Crafty Gifts

Welcome to the first day of my brand new YouTube series, 12 Crafts of Christmas! Each day I will share a Christmas craft such as a card, tag, ornament and more! For today though, I have some gift ideas to share! Here are 5 inexpensive crafty gifts or stocking stuffers. For starts, here is the Stori Clear Plastic Nail Polish organizer.
I use one of these for my Distress Oxide ink blenders and it fits perfectly inside one of my Alex drawers from IKEA.
I use another for my Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops and liquid glues.
Next up are the Yoseng brushes! These super soft make up brushes are cheap, but blend Distress Oxide ink beautifully!
Speaking of Distress Oxide inks, there are several new colors and I can absolutely recommend these three, Festive Berries, Pine Needles and Chipped Sapphire.
Then there are the new Tonic Studios Nuvo Vintage Drops. They dry dimensional and bright but have matte color as opposed to the shiny Crystal Drops. 
There's also fun colors of Glitter Accents.
And last, but not least, there is a whole new batch of Therm O Web and Gina K Designs adhesives. Everything from Foam Tape to Masking Tape and more!
I show all these crafty gifts up close in this video, so you can check them out and see if they are right for you or a crafty friend!
Thanks so much for stopping by for Day 1 of my 12 Crafts of Christmas! Check out all the supplies I used in the video below! Happy shopping!

Waffle Flower November Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Welcome to the Waffle Flower November Release Blog Hop! I have lots to share with you this month but don't forget to make it to the end where we will talk about the GIVEAWAY!

This release 4 stamps sets (one available with matching dies) and a stand alone set of tag dies perfect for topping off presents or decorating cards! So let me share some of the projects I created with these fabulous new stamps and dies! First up is the adorable Holiday Thanks stamp set and matching dies
The whole scene is created for you on one stamp. Color it in with markers pencils, watercolors and more! This set is amazing for making thank you cards for all the wonderful gifts you receive for Christmas!
But the best part about this set is that you can cut off the image of the Christmas tree, add a little birthday hat and turn the image into one that works for a birthday card or birthday thank you card!
I created this card by watercoloring rainbows over the background and stamped image using Distress Oxide Inks.
 Next up is Winter Wishes. The adorable snowpeople can be quickly stamped with this 2 layer builder stamp set.
 And how cute is Cool Dog?! Again another 2 layer stamp that can quickly and easily create the cutest floppy eared dog wearing a pom pom hat!
I also used the Dotted Tags Die Set for this card! I inked the small tags and used them as an embellishment and stamped the image on cardstock that I layered over the largest tag.
 These Dotted Tags look great on cards, but they are also just the right touch for topping off presents!
I stamped a simple greeting on the middle size tag and layered all three sizes together to decorate this Christmas present.
If you love all the products in this release, just grab the Bundle and save some money!
