Gift Tag- Parisian Blossoms


I am so excited we have a tag, that can be made into a shaker card. I guess there are many ways to make a shaker tag, but this tag using the Bonanza Dies makes it so much easier. Just choose your canvas, and cut. Add a few embellishments and you are done. A super way to use up those spare bits of DSP and or cardstock.

I love black, especially combined with other colors or designs. Today’s card combines the use of Window Sheets/Acetate and Black Cardstock.

I have used a combination of punches to punch out and create the flowers it also includes using the big shot to cut a 3-inch circle, from the window sheet/Acetate.

This weeks “Weekly Deals”

Hello friends, I hope everyone is travelling well?  February is over and we are into March!! Now we start with the Easter Egg giving. Way too much chocolate, around!

Speaking of beginnings and endings, we will be approaching the end of March before we know what has happened. So I would like to put it out there that the “Free” items that are available to anyone who purchases $90.00 of products will end at the end of March 2016. So please be mindful, of taking advantage of the Sale-A-Bration specials, where you can get some fab freebies before the end of March 31st!

There certainly has been a lot of hype this year on social media, then again, perhaps I am paying more attention to things, however, I have seen some amazing artistic projects from stampers and crafters, who clearly did take advantage of the “Free” items offer, which happens every year at the same time. Why not try to make your own baskets, cards, or packaging for your Easter giving…or get the kids involved!

I am always blown away, as they say, with stampers and crafters, there are always amazing artistic designs and idea’s that I find inspiring and encouraging, I love to get inky hands, DSP and card stock and get playing and designing. Even if you have never stamped before, there is so much available on social media, that you just can’t go wrong. So don’t put of that “me” time anymore!! get in and have some fun! And who doesn’t love a bargain? right?
