Painted Blooms Tags

I took some time out today to stock on some much needed tags for upcoming spring gift giving.  I made these tags from the Painted Blooms DS Paper from the Occasions 2015 Catalog.  I got the idea for the tags from SU's Tag A Bag Kits, only I made them custom with my own punches and framelits.


I love the colors used from this paper: Pacific Point, Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Blackberry Bliss and of course Whisper White


My favorite pattern (tag) is this one above

Here's a Valentine's Day present for the dog I walk using one of the tags and a decorated box.


I keep all the tags in this cute little bucket I got from a friend so when I need one, they are ready to go!
Happy Stamping everyone, until next time.

Rolled Sugar Cookies for Christmas Gifts!

Here's the cookies my kids and I made prior to my Packaging with Appeal Class.  They are Alton Brown's recipe for Rolled Sugar Cookies and Royal Icing.



Three cookies fit perfectly into each of the bags and boxes we made.  These cookies are REALLY yummy.  I gave them out to my son's bus driver and the mailman.  Enjoy!

Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls Package

Hi Everyone!
I designed a package for my son's grab bag party at school.  I used paper from one of the Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls and a coordinating Trim the Tree DS Paper Stack paper.  What's inside you ask?  $5 worth of school supplies, triangular Crayola Crayons and multiplication fact flash cards.
More packaging ideas to come...
