Nugget Snowmen

  Christmas is only 10 days away! Today’s project is another gift you can make for all those people in your life you want to recognize with just a little something. They are snowmen made from Hershey’s Nuggets. Here’s what I made:     Here’s how I did it: For the snowmen: I cut strips of Whisper White card stock to 1″ x 3″. This is the perfect size to wrap around Hershey’s Nuggets. I left the bottom strip blank. On the center strip, I stamped buttons from the Snow Place stamp set in Memento Black ink. On the top strip, …

Happy Ornament is Retiring

  The Happy Ornament wood mount stamp is retiring soon, so get it while you can! I used it to create this card with a palette of cool colors. This is a really quick card to make. There’s only one stamp and the rest is gluing together some layers.     Here’s what I made:     Here’s how I did it: The card base is Island Indigo card stock. There is a piece of Whisper White CS glued to the inside for a handwritten note. On the front is a layer of Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper from the 2015-2017 In …

Fa-La-La-La-La-La-La-Llama!

  Sometimes silly little things bother me. For example, this sentiment from the Fa-la-la Friends stamp set says Fa-la-la-la-llama. Cute, right? But the song has more syllables than that! Scroll down for a simple way to add the missing Las.     Here’s what I made: These two cards are the same except for the two layers of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the card stock layer underneath.   Here’s how I did it: The song has nine syllables. The stamp has six, so we need three more. The stamp has three (La-La-La) in the middle, so you just need to stamp those twice. …

Tree full of Kisses and Nuggets

  Need a cute little gift for someone? This is perfect, and it’s a whole lot easier than you may think. I’ve made and given several of these already. One day I was running late (imagine that!) and made 8 of these in about 15 minutes. Here’s what I made:   Here’s how I did it: Cut one piece of Garden Green card stock to 2″ x 10″. Score on the long side at 3-1/4″, 6-1/2″, and 9-3/4″. Score on the short side at 1″. Fold it in half to 1″ x 10″ and glue to keep it closed. Fold all score …

ICS Blog Hop: Hang Your Stocking Bundle

    This month the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop is all about white-on-white projects. I love tone-on-tone projects, and white-on-white is my favorite. I also enjoy using different products together, and I used several to create today’s card.   Here’s what I made: My card has three stockings hanging from a mantle covered in pine boughs and pinecones. The sentiment is subtle: each stocking has the word Merry.   While the details are visible in person, it’s hard to make them show up in a photo. Here’s a darkened photo to help.   Here’s how I did it: The …

Floral Boutique Mica Candle Gift

  Today’s project is another in a series of quick, easy, small, inexpensive gifts. The white, unscented candle came from the Dollar Tree (my local store where everything costs $1.)   Here’s what I made:   Here’s how I did it: I cut five 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ pieces of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, and glued them to the sides and top of a White Gift Box. I took a length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and colored it with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker. I let it dry for a while before tying it around the box. …

You’re So Sweet

    Recently I’ve been sharing projects that are great for small gifts – perfect for people you want to give just a little something to.  The projects are inexpensive items dressed up with papercrafting products. This one is a can of honey roasted cashews. Or you could eat the cashews and use the empty container for another small gift – cookies maybe?   Here’s what I made:   Here’s how I did it: The can came with a black lid, which prompted my choice of colors. I cut a piece of Pop of Pink Designer Series paper (white with black dots) …
