Card Making Time!

Here's a few cards for you, made with My StampBOX stamps, of course.
 
This is a super quick, super simple birthday card. The Sock Monkey set comes with stuff for all kinds of occasions, one of which is a party hat! I used Doodlebug papers, kraft card stock, and a pre-folded white card.
 
 
 
Yep, another sock monkey card, and more Doodlebug paper.



 
This card uses the Enjoy Your Latte set and lots of Christmas Card making leftovers.

Quicky Last Minute Tag

I needed a tag for a rather large gift, cause there's no way I'm wrapping it! So I pulled out my My Stamp Box goodies and whipped this cutie up in a flash.

Supplies: tag, scrap of pattern paper, border punch, ribbon, embossing ink, markers, scissors, adhesive, staz on ink, scrap of card stock, cute die cut or other embellishment, stamps and white embossing powder from My Stamp Box. 


Super simple. Put a bunch of snowflakes on an acrylic mount, ink 'em up, and stamp the tag. Emboss with the white EP. 


Punch a cute border on your pattern paper scrap and add to the tag. Add ribbon along the straight edge. 
Stamp the reindeer on a scrap of card stock, color, cut out. Adhere your die cut or other embellishments and then the reindeer.

Christmas Tags with My Stamp Box stamps

I have a new design team gig doe 2014 with a super sweet company called My Stamp Box. They manufacture clear stamps which come in their own storage cases (like CD cases). They are fabulous thick stamps and have taken all of my inks quite well.

My very first project with My Stamp Box stamps is Christmas tags! Yes, these are actually on some Christmas gifts. The stamp sets used are: Mini Alpha, Holiday Monkey, HoHoHo, & Mini Pennants.

 
The Sock Monkey set comes with accessories for all kinds of holidays and he is SUPER adorable!
I am totally in love with this cute little reindeer. He's so sweet.
 



The Mini Pennants make great Christmas Trees when you turn 'em upside down! I stamped the green trees with two inks, and the polka dot tree is simply black ink on kraft card stock. So darling :)
 


Here's a couple of tags on some gifts. These are for my two best buddies. I think these are adorable.

Crafty Studio, 99.9% Finished SNEAK PEEKS

Well, we've been working on it since July, but the crafty studio is almost finished. It's become a lovely den of pink girly-ness and Disney love. I love being in there, and since I spend most of my day in this room, it makes me very happy.

In our nearly 20 years together, I've been constantly trying to carve out some space for myself. With being married young, broke, and with three kiddos right off the bat, it's been very difficult to do so! I've done it all from a tiny armoire in the living room, to a room in the basement, to a desk that took up nearly half of the living room, to a small corner of the bedroom (THAT one didn't last very long. For some reason, my mechanic husband didn't enjoy going to work with glitter on him! HA!). Through it all, hubs has never complained (except for the glitter) and he's always been a great sport.

There are still a few small things I need to finish up in the crafty studio (but, alas Spray Painting Season is over, so a couple of those projects must wait until the spring), and I need one more trip to IKEA, so I'm going to share a few sneak peeks. After the holidays (likely the first or second week of January) I'll post tons of photos and a video tour.

Enjoy!

These cuties are the 31 totes called "Littles".
They are *not quite* 6x6 and are great for so many things!
These hold Stickles, Washi Tapes, embellishments & bling,
and ribbons & trim.

Ah the PINK EXPEDIT!! WOOT!!
This are is the desk with the computer and Cameo.
It's where I do school work, biz work, and play on the web.

Storage!
I've been saving jars of all sorts-
spaghetti sauce jars, parmesan cheese jars, candle jars, etc.
If the lids are printed I decorate them.
Cut some vinyl on the Cameo to label, and there ya go!
 
And here's one of the Disney touches in the room.
Cute Mickey mouse pencil holder.
