Christmas treats!

Hello there!

It’s so quiet out here but no worries, I’m still here! Its been very busy lately with everyday life and my time to craft were cut back a little to attend more at work.

Anyhow, I’m sharing today a DIY project just in time for the holidays to keep knick knacks and gifts to kids or adults alike. I’m also sharing this are SarahHurley365 blog as part of the Documented December posts.

I used an inexpensive mini brown bags that I’m sure are easily available in your local area.

I used Sarah‘s mini journaling cards, some were stamped with additional elements to add more dimension/ texture.

On these bags, you can put a selection of small candies and chocolates or if you’re giving away a gift for a crafty friend, you can also put a small stamp & mini stamp pad as treats.

Here are some closer look to each of the treat holders..

Stamped packaging

Hello every one!

Have you sometimes wondered how to get plain packaging pouch to look more encouraging than a plain white paper to put things in?

I’m sharing a packaging project at a2z Scrapbooking blog today addressing this thought. Here’s a sneak peek of what I did so visit the a2z Scrapbooking blog to see how I packaged a card and some sweets. It’s a great way to mass produce too to use in party favors. Go can go here for more details.

My Best Friend

All Dressed Up Challenge blog (ADU) has started its first challenge today with the theme, Anything Goes.

ADU had a design team call a month ago and I being a digi stamp lover of cute, whimsical images tried out but didn’t make it to the cut.

I’m so happy though that I was asked to be a Guest Designer for the month of  October 🙂 How great is that?

So now I’m sharing my take using ADU My Best Friend digi image. I did two projects, one as a card and another as a gift tag.  I think the gift tag will be great for party favors and just any gift isn’t it?

I embossed the pink card base for some added texture and played around some patterned papers for additional colors. The images were colored with promarkers, my go to coloring medium at the moment.

I can’t decide which of the two should I submit for the challenge so I sent them both so ADU team can choose. So happy they accepted both to be featured.

So here it is.

Chi Chi Memories – Costume Set 2

It’s the fist of the month and its the time for new month release from Chi Chi Memories.

For October, its Candace and Jordy dressed up in Costumes. The digi stamp set is called Costume Set 2. Very pretty isn’t it?

I used the lion and tiger costumes of Jordy & Candace for a packaging tag. I have some white packages that can hold some treats, chocolates, candies or just anything for a treat or party that I used here.  I put a Kit Kat bar in mine 🙂 I added some washi tapes in the bottom for some colors.

Coloring is still using my fave at the moment, promarkers.  I fuzzy cut each of them and placed them in a die cut tag with stamped background. The rest is a combination of patterned papers and attached to the package with jute twine.
