Hanging Tags - Video Tutorial

Today's "Video Tutorial - Hanging Tags"

Hey everyone!  I thought I would share this tutorial for these hanging gift card tags I made!  I just love this idea.  I needed to find a more "fancy" way to give gift cards.  And this is it!

I started out make a small envelope with my envelope punch board.  Make the evenlope for a 3 X 3 card.  You will need your paper to be 5 1/2 X 5 1/2.  On this board you will put your paper in at 2 3/4 to start the punching.  Remember to not punch the last turn!

After adhering it together you can decorate it how you wish.  I used an image and stickers even.  I also used some floss or even some great metallic-ie twine to create the hanging feature.  
I used some dies to die cut the images and the back mats.  Just love how this really looks great.

Lastly I made the little "To & From" tags to hang off the back for ease of seeing who is was for and from!  Love this idea and so much fun to make!

DT - Distressing Challenge

Today's "DT Post Card"

For this weeks challenge is a distressing!!!!

Hey everyone.  I just love vintage albums and distressing.  I made this wonderful album using a variety of papers from my stash.  I love making little vintage albums like these.  They are so cute and people really enjoy them!

I love all the black and white accents and you can do this as well in brown and cream.  I make a few pockets.  There is an option to close up the inside flap to not be a pocket as well.

The gold elements are awesome.  I used a EK punch to punch along the long pocket to add some nice details!  The butterfly die is from Simon Says Stamp, just love these butterfly dies.  The little black paper clip is from MFT!  Love that set.  Lastly I added 3 bling to the corner to finish it off!  Check out below my video tutorial on how to make the base for this style album!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!

Birthday Bear + Video Tutorial

Today's "Make a Card 1"

Hey everyone. I made this wonderful bear card.  I just love this card.  I took some papers and adhered the blue strip to the dotted paper.  I added the ribbon with some scotch tape and then adhered the whole piece to the card base.  I had my image all cut out already so I added him up on pop dots to give the card a little dimension.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from Paper Smooches and embossed some white embossing powder.  I love using white on coloured card stocks!  Lastly I added a few bling into the corner.  It is such a simple card, but I love the look!
