This elegant tag and band will dress up any bottle. You might decorate your party tables. Or perhaps you could add this tag to a gift of wine, olive oil, or wine vinegar, or really anything that comes in a bottle. You can fill a wide mouth bottle with small gifts. It would make a lovely hostess gift. And you can change the colors to match the holiday or event theme.

Bright and Beautiful StarLove the new catalog!  I made this shaker card with the Bright & Beautiful stamp set.  Sure, it’s presented as a Christmas set,. but why limit it?  I used is as a congratulations card here with Night of Navy layered over Whisper White card stock.  With a little careful inking and the use of the you can make the greeting say Bright & Beautiful followed by “Shine with happiness.”  I used the Stars Framelits to cut a window in the navy layer and a frame from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I punched the bottom of the navy layer with the new Confetti Stars punch and punched the scraps of glimmer paper to make the confetti to fill the shaker.  I cut another frame from fun foam for a spacer between the Window Sheets for the shaker.  Lovely, if I do say so myself!


I demonstrated this card for my September Paper Play Day.  We used the Lucky Stars Textured Embossing Folder on the Night of Navy layer.  It really stepped up this card!

Gift Box Punch Board The products from the new Holiday 2014 catalog are here! 

This lovely box was made with the Gift Box Punch Board and went together really quickly.  The punch board makes boxes that don’t need any adhesive. The punch board shows 3 sizes of boxes that can be made with 8″ x 8″ card stock.  The video below shows a fourth size box that can also be made with the same size card stock.  These boxes are quite elegant, if I do say so myself.

I decided to demonstrate these boxes at my September Paper Play Day.  Click below for the supply list and directions.
