Happy Easter Peep Tags!

I hope you all had a very Happy Easter!!!

I decided to make some tags last minute Saturday night for my kids' packages of Peeps. And when I say last minute, I mean in the middle of the night. LOL!



I used some Doodlebug scraps, the Treat Tag Die from Jaded Blossom, and a sentiment from My Craft Spot (out of business) to make these 3 simple but sweet tags. 

I just cut a bunny peep from my SVG stash with my Cameo and then I die cut my tag with my Cuttlebug. I put the tag together, popped on the peep with some foam, and then added the sentiment. I tied them to the packages using various ribbons from my stash. 

Blessings,

Baby Buddies Bunny Easter Gift Set

Have you seen this week's freebie from


It is just too cute and is part of a new series called Baby Buddies! You can see all the new Baby Buddies in the What's New section of the Store.

I quickly whipped this gift set up last night to give to my daughter's teacher for Easter.


I took this week's freebie and changed out the ears for the ears on the bunny in the Tots and Whatnots Magic file. But with either ears this bunny is too cute and super simple to put together!!!


I also used some Jaded Blossom goodies on these. The sentiment on the card is from Spring Panels and the tag is from Mini Tag Dies 2. And the bow on the box is from Bow Dies


The patterned papers are from Doodlebug Design's Springtime collection. The box and the the card base are from SVG Cutting Files. 

Here is a pic of the freebie from Treasure Box Designs.


You can download this from the Treasure Gems Facebook Group or the Treasure Box Designs blog

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Create Your Own Magic!

Happy Tuesday to you! I hope your day is magical!!!

It is my day to post on the Jaded Blossom blog and I have this super fun 12x12 layout to share with you using a file from Treasure Box Designs!


I used the Tots and Whatnots Magic collection from the Teenie Treasures files at Treasure Box Designs. (The banner at the top does not come with the cut file collection.) The patterned paper is from Authentique's Beauty collection. And I finished it off using the Unicorns and Glitter stamp set for the sentiment on the star and the Card Mat Dies for the top layer of the photo mat from the Jaded Blossom store. I may have went a tad white gel pen happy on his tux, but it came out super adorable!!! Hope you will give this LO a try!!!

Crafty Treats for You! - Jaded Blossom March Release Day 2

It is release week on the Jaded Blossom Blog! Everyday this week, we will have sneaks of all the new Jaded Blossom goodies being released on Friday and we hope you will join us!!!

It is Day 2 and we are sharing sneaks from the new Stamp Addict and Crafty Candies!


I've never been to a craft retreat, but I imagine those who host them give out lots of wonderful goodies to those who attend. So when I put my project together for today, I wanted to make something that I thought would be fun to give out if I were hosting one. This was to fun to make and not super hard!!! It would have to be a small craft gathering though! LOL!!!


I had seen something like this on the My 3 Monsters blog as a birthday party invitation a long while back and it came to mind for this project. I started with a small can of soda and found a foam ball about the size of the top. I cut the foam ball in half and attached it to the top with some Washi tape. From there I just started layering candy starting at the bottom of the foam ball and used stick pins to attach them. I then worked my way up layering the different candies. Any wrapped candy will work. Salt Water Taffy and Kit Kats just happen to be 2 of my favs!!! 

For the tag, I used the Panel Dies. I cut my panel using Watercolor Paper from Tim Holtz and then used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink with a medium width flat brash and watercolored part of the tag. I then stamped the sentiment from Stamp Addict to it and then made a small hole with a hole punch one one side of it. The hole allowed me to attach my tag to the tag using some Trendy Twine. It is easier to attach the tag if you do it before adding the foam ball and candy. 


The new Stamp Addict and Craft Candies stamps will be in the Jaded Blossom store on Friday; but, of course, if you don't want to wait until Friday to get the new release ........

We have our Gotta Have it Now Package for $135.99

1 - 3 x 4 Freebie

Coffee Graffiti - Jaded Blossom March Release Day 1

It is release week on the Jaded Blossom Blog! Everyday this week, we will have sneaks of all the new Jaded Blossom goodies being released on Friday and we hope you will join us!!!

Today we are sharing projects using the new Coffee Dies, Coffee Break, and Coffee Candies.


I admit that I am not a coffee drinker, but I have many family members and friends who are and I am excited about all the possibilities that these new dies and stamps will give for gift giving! I wanted to make a gift set with a card and a treat box. 


I love this paper from Authentique and wanted my sentiments to look like graffiti on a brick wall. As for the Coffee Dies, I thought some sweet decorative cups would be nice. And I think the butterfly vellum lid looks awesome as a finishing touch. 

For the box, I used the Scallop Caddy Die


For my card, I wanted to try the Scallop Slider and Topper Die as a card. I started with a piece of kraft cardstock that was already scored at the center. I aligned it with the die a bit short of the top of the die and ran it through my Cuttlebug. It took a bit of work since I chose a thick cardstock, but I worked it out and had a great base. I then ran my designer paper through the Cuttlebug as well. I added the sentiment and then attached the decorative piece to the front of the base. I finished by adding my coffee cup to the front as well. 

Love how these turned out. I wish I could send each of you one!!!

As I said, these dies and stamps will be in the Jaded Blossom store on Friday; but, of course, if you don't want to wait until Friday to get the new release ........

We have our Gotta Have it Now Package for $135.99

Pot of Gold

This sweet bear has found its pot of gold - no leprechaun needed!!!

I'm sharing a fun card using the Honey Bear file from

The card is 4.25" square with a background from Doodlebug Design's Springtime collection and was die cut using Stitched Squares from Jaded Blossom. The bear and the bees were pieced together and added to the front using foam squares.

I am excited to know that spring is just around the corner!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Football!

Well neither of these represent my team, but not every one can be lucky enough to call Kansas City their hometown. I hope the recipient will enjoy them though.

Here are some football helmet cards:


The helmet card is from SVG Cutting Files. The logos will have to be traced as I received those as freebies and they are no longer available. I may have to make more of these! Love me some football - really I am just one of those girls who loves her sports period!!!

Thanks for taking a look!

Jaded Blossom March Challenge: Try Something New

Happy Sunday! It is Challenge Day over on Jaded Blossom blog!!!

Join the Jaded Blossom team this month with the new challenge theme -
Try Something New: Create a project using a stamp or die you'v never used before.

Here is my card:


I actually used two stamp sets that I had not used before - Kitty Dress Up and Paint Splatters

I used the offset function on my Cameo software to make my SVG outline for the kitty a bit larger. I then used it a second time to make a shadow layer in white. The kitty from Kitty Dress Up is stamped onto paper from Authentique's Sweetness 6x6 paper pad. The paper is a really pale pink making it difficult to see in the photo. The base is white cardstock in an A2 size. The background paper is from Authentique's Summer 6x6 paper pad and is die cut from the Card Mat Dies. I added some design with a stamp from Party Splatters and a sentiment from Meow and Forever.


I hope you will join Jaded Blossom's "Try Something New" Challenge this month. I can't wait to see your projects!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,

Jaded Blossom has some wonderful new Fitness Stamps to go along with this hop!  Check out the Bundle below!



And now for my project!




I know that these stamps will be awesome planner stamps; but with so many of my friends taking up life style changes, these will be wonderful stamps to dress up a gift set for those who don't want to be tempted by chocolate. But no worries, chocolate still has a place on my crafting desk. LOL!



I started with a Kawaii Apple Gift Bag from SVG Cutting Files. I added a tag from Mini Tag Dies 2 and stamped it with the cute Kawaii Kettlebell stamp from the Fitness Candies stamps. I atttached it using some Trendy Twine. Inside I tucked in an Under Armour gift card and a bag of almonds also tied off with Trendy Twine.



I also die cut the Candy Caddy from Jaded Blossom. I altered the apple from the Kawaii Apple bag ever so slightly and attached it to the front. I also die cut another tag from Mini Tag Dies 2 and stamped the sentiment "Train" from the Fitness stamps to it. Inside I inserted a protein bar and then closed it up with one more bow of Trendy Twine. 

A perfect gift for those who are working to be fit!!!
Next Up is Cindy!!!
