Remarkable Pinworthy Tour - Tie One On!

It is the most wonderful time of the year!  First I'm back to creating!  Took some time off as I completed a college class.  I passed the class and am now studying for a certification test.  But I'm taking a few days to enjoy the season!  Love all the lights and music this time of year.  I also love creating my own packaging and tags for gift giving.  I hope you enjoy what I've created and please feel free to "PIN" the samples to your Pinterest board.

I had a lot of scraps on my table from Christmas cards I was creating, so I used what was available to create the following three tags.  First I needed a tag for a bottle of wine I'm giving.

Love how this came together!   Simple quick and easy!

Next I needed a tag for a gift bag for a man.  I think this is perfect!

My final tag is a gift for a friend who loves skittles and old jars.

All tree tags used scraps of cardstock, DSP, and ribbons.  Just added some stamped images and embellishments.  Total time to create - under an hour from start to finish!  

Hope you have time this holiday season to "Tie One On!"
Merry Christmas and a Creative New Year!
Blessings, Missy

RemARKable Pinworthy Tour- Winter Holidays

Welcome back to the RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour- Winter Holidays!  It's that time of year  when I create for the holidays!  I love to give treats as RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) - I create for craft fairs and for those who work in customer service.  They have jobs that go unthanked most of the year.
Here's my project for this year - it's a French Fry Box that is decorated to look like a Santa Suit.

Simple to create and easy to fill - this one has a pack of flavored hot chocolate and some mini marshmallows  all tied up with a colorful bow!

Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black Cardstock
Silver Glimmer Paper
Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding
French Fry Die
Square Framelits
Big Shot
Stampin Trimmer
Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive and Glue Dots

We're back!!!  Time for another RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour - this month our theme is Scary Fun! If you are following the tour you just left Nancy's blog and her amazing creations!
While I wasn't quite sure to do for the tour this month as my children are grown and I don't decorate for Halloween anymore..... but I love the new Freaky Friend Stamp set and the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini.  So I spent the weekend creating and finishing alot of projects for some upcoming craft fairs and swaps.  One of the swaps is for Project Life Pocket cards.  I had so much fun creating these 4 x 3 cards that I know I had to make a whole set that I could in each of my children's Memory Albums.  I created a set of 8 Halloween cards for each child's album.  Here is what I created:

Now to find Halloween pictures and put the pages together.

Freky Friends, Ghoulish Greetings and Frightful Wreath Stamp Sets
Project Life 4" x 3" Grid Cards

Sneak Peak!!!

I spent yesterday with friends creating with products from the new catalog.  It's one of the perks of being a Happy Shopper - you get the new product a month before it is available for everyone else!

I love gift giving and gift packaging- so I spent some time using a new Curly Keepsake Box Thinlits Box.  Want to see what I came up with???

Here's my fall pumpkin gift box.  Isn't it cute??

I can see this as a table favor or a treat for a co-worker.  Tuck a piece or two of candy inside and you will make someone's day!

Okay, I couldn't stop at one- so here's the next one...

I saw this on pinterest and had to case it...can't wait to fill some of these to hand out during the holidays!

Needed a third one - so how about and original design - here's Tom the Turkey- love him!!

Can't you just see him on the table for Thanksgiving!

While I was creating these, my friend Jan created something for the golf enthusiast in your life-

This thinlit is a must have  - I'll be posting a class soon where we will create these amazing gift boxes.  Don't forget the Big Shot special that is going on right now- it's the perfect time to be a Happy Shopper.

Like my facebook and pinterest pages to see what I'm creating next!

RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour- New Beginnings

Ready for a new beginning?  We are!! And I have a new blog site - what do you think??
There are so many new beginnings in my life right now - new blog, school is starting soon, both for work and I will become a student again after soooo many years.  We have a family wedding at the end of August and many other NEW things are about to happen,  So what did I want to create for New Beginning??? I have spent the summer giving my home a new look.  My friend Jan and I took a road trip to Lucketts in VA and I found this amazing old window that already had been fitted with a chalkboard painted panel.

This beautiful piece has a New Beginning in my home- just needed to add something to it.  The Stampin Up Chalboard Banner Kit was perfect. Here's a link to a video from Stampin Up on this kit.

Here's what I did with the kit-

This banner was so easy to make- everything you need is included in the kit - and it came together quickly!  I also used the stencils from the Build A Banner Simply Created Kit to chalk the letters blessed on the pieces.  

I'd love to read you r comments - have you given a New Beginning to an old piece??

Did you check out the Tuesday updates for Stampin' Up - it's the second Tuesday so there is a new photopylmer stamp set -

I think this is the best one yet!  We are planning an event this fall with a Western Theme and I'm sure that we will use this stamp set for decorations, invites and Project Life  pages.  I can't wait to start creating with this set - stop back next week for some samples or head over to Stampin'Up to see the samples on their  blog!

I spent some time in July creating with my friend Deb and we decided to make Christmas cards using DSP from the Annual Catalog.  Here's the first one:

This card is a clean and simple card and I love how it came out!

(Just realized that the Textured Embossing Folder that I used is retired.  Sorry about that but I'm sure that  #132174- Stylish Strips would look awesome)

Blessings, Missy

Welcome Monday!  I spent the weekend creating samples for my upcoming classes and the Holiday Mini launch.  I'll be sharing my sneak peeks  next week, however I have some cards form past classes that I haven"t shared yet.  The Travler Stamp Set has so many possibilities.

Love the vintage look of this card!

Thought I continue sharing project that used the Big Shot.  As I said I use this machine all the time!!
I love creating cards that are clean and simple and are created using tone on tone,


This card uses the new Striped Scallop Thinlit.  Love the look this gives the card!

Happy Sunday and blessings to you!
