Today’s Gift Tag

Hi all!


Just quick little something to share with you today.

A handmade Valentine's tag created with stamps from Paper Smooches //

Had some fun making this guy for Paper Smooches with the new Courteous Cuties stamp set (and dies) and For You tag die.

To give the little dude some color, I used  a couple markers – a gray for highlights, a couple flesh tones for the legs and ears and a really soft pink for the cheeks. Those cheeks are pretty subtle but look really, really, really, really close and you’ll see them. See? Told you. Wink.

This tag could pretty much go on any gift package. I decided instead to go all Valentine’s Day like with it and fill up a little bag with Valentine’s Candy Corn and then add it to it. Easy peasy.

Alright. That’s all I have you today. I’ll be back again later, friends. Hope you are having a super day.


Today’s Project (2-9)


Hello all!

So I walked on the wild side today and made something non-card for Valentine’s Day. I put together these simple little treat bags.

They were super easy.


I started out with a couple tags. I cut some patterned patterned paper to go on them and then just started stamping with stamps from a couple stamp sets from Technique Tuesday – Adored by Ali Edwards and Love Always Wins by Ali Edwards. I slapped the papers onto the tags, added a few gems and called it good.

Then I stuffed some candy treats into small glassine bags and wrapped some patterned paper strips (from Crate Paper) around it. I thought the randomness of the papers (from their On Trend collection) worked swell for the project.


Finally, I tied on a little jute twine to each package and hung the tags from it.

Easy peasy. And, now, if the postal service will work with me to help these get in the hands of a few sweet friends in time for Valentine’s Day… 😉

By the way, I’ve got  prize to give away! Who won the slot in the You’ve Got Mail! with Lisa Spangler class from Studio Calico?! Well, hot dog. That would be Perrie (2/5 at 10:33)! Congrats, Perrie! Check your email for a note from me.

Be back again tomorrow!
