Gorjuss Girls Happy Mail Part 3

Hello crafters and welcome back to Part 3 of this Gorjuss Girl Happy Mail projects.  Today features four projects from the above pictures that completes everything you see above.   
Project number 1 starts with this adorable milk carton in a carrier.  This was created with two dies from Divinity Designs.  The Milk Carton with Layers die and the Milk Carton Holder die.  The flowers were created with a die from my stash-a spellbinders cinch and go-and the clothes pins came like you see here and were a purchase.
Don't you love the new Slim Line cards.  You have lots of real estate to decorate on them.  This die was a purchase from Aliexpress and created by Nicole Silhoutte.
A tutorial for this sticker pocket envelope is featured on my youtube channel if you are interested in creating one.  I holds lots of stickers and embellishments.  Just search for Carol Hurlock in youtube and the videos will come up.
For the fourth and final project of this Happy Mail is this sweet little bookcase and holder.  If your interested in creating one of these, you can find a tutorial on youtube by "Craft Purge".    Hope you have enjoyed these project shares and get inspiration for your own Happy Mail projects.  Thanks for joining me.  Until next time......Happy Crafting!

Gorjuss Girls Happy Mail Projects Part 2

Today is Part 2 of the Gorjuss Girls Happy Mail.  Featured today are three different projects from the above picture.
The first project is this darling mini coffee cup holder.  It's a Nicole Silhouette die you can find on Aliexpress.  You can get the mini cups there as well, but mine are from Amazon.   
For today's second project, we have this cute purse from Tonic Studios called Peony Bloom die.  Let me tell you, this is a good sized die.  I didn't get a picture of the contents but there is a candy box that holds three Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, a box that holds two bottles of nail polish, a box that holds nail polish remover pads, and a box that holds lip balm all packed nicely inside.  Love it!
The third and last project for today is just three rolls of ribbon from the dollar tree blued together.  Some sent me something like this in a swap and I just loved it.  All the spools have been covered with paper and the top decorated.  Isn't she sweet!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Please check the blog tomorrow for more projects from this collection.  Until next time.  Happy Crafting!

Gorjuss Girls Happy Mail Projects

So were going to mix it up a bit over the next few days while I share with you a Happy Mail project I did last year featuring Gorjuss Girls.  Don't you love how sweet these girls are.  Over the next few days, you will be seeing different projects from the picture above.  For today's post the Loaded Banner from the Happy Mail will be featured.
 
The idea for this loaded banner came from the Loaded Envelope Galore and More Facebook Group.  Although I could not participate in the swap, this project was something on the "to do" list.  Isn't it darling!
You will find a tutorial for this by Kay Hutchings Hafen on YouTube.   You can get an idea how to put this together by watching and then do your own thing like I did.  I used my Cricut to cut out the banners.  This Loaded Banner is 7 inches long.  
Prima Rose Quartz paper was used in this project.  It's beautiful and I had a couple pads and most of it was used.  These Girls are fun to put together.  All the flowers you see are hand crafted as well.  It's one of my favorite things to create.
Hope you enjoyed this banner share.  Be sure to check back tomorrow as I will be sharing more projects from this Happy Mail.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs and Blessings!

Nicole Silhouette Large Tea Cup die

If you haven't guessed it already, I'm a big fan of anything "Tea" themed.  When Nicole introduced this cup I was overjoyed!!!  This is a good size cup.  It's about 3" tall and 8" wide and even includes a spoon.  The possibilities are endless with this die.  It's made into a home d├ęcor piece here, but it would also be lovely filled with candy and goodies.  You'll be seeing this again this year as I have other ideas to try.  Thanks so much for joining me today.  Be sure to keep checking back as I catch up on my postings.  Hugs and Blessings!

Nicole Silhouette Cabinet Die

Hello friends and crafters.  Today's share is a Nicole Silhouette die found on Aliexpress.  This is just the cutest little Cabinet.  The little Snowmen are ephemera from the Prima Sugar Cookie Collection.  The little house on the top is a Recollection die from Michael's.  
This little cabinet opens open to reveal four drawers.  It was absolutely perfect for sending my Best Friend a set of Gingersnaps and a Necklace.  The Necklace was placed in the top drawer.  I could have easily put two or more.  The drawers held quite a few snaps.  I had 5 each in the three drawers but I could have put more. 
As you can see in this photo, the drawers are deep enough to hold something substantial.  Just because it's decorated with snowmen does not mean it has to be put away after Christmas.  It was intended for my BFF to leave it out year round.  I even included a book mark that has a charm attachments so that she can change out Gingersnaps as well.
Thanks so much for joining me today.  This is one of those dies in my collection that I know I will be repeating.  So be sure to check back as I will be creating more of these with different themes.  Until next time friends hugs and blessings to you and yours!

2020 Christmas Gingerbread Themed Tags

For Christmas 2020 the theme for my yearly tags was Gingerbread.  These are usually sent to friends and family in groups of 4-6 depending on what I create to put them in.  These are sent instead of Christmas cards so the recipient can use them.  Most of them use them as Christmas Ornaments on their tree! 
This sweet Gingy is a Cottagecutz die.  It's just adorable sitting on top of that cupcake don't you think!
This darling Ginger is holding onto a spoon.  It's a die that was discovered on Aliexpress.
Here's another one with a slightly different saying.   You could write anything you want on the spoon.
One of my favorite Gingerbread days.  This is a Cottagecutz die that unfortunately is retired and no longer available.
This charming Gingerbread was another Aliexpress find.  I did swap out the peppermint for one I created with a Martha Stewart punch from my stash.
This delightful Gingerbread was another Aliexpress find.  Don't you just love the cup with the cupcakes!
This Gingerbread girl will steal your heart with her sweet Gingerbread dress.  She's just waiting to give you a hug!
It wouldn't be Christmas at the Hurlock house without something pink thrown in....lol  This is that darling retired Cottagecutz die with a Magnolia Doohickey oven.
In case your wondering, there were a lot of Gingerbread dies on Aliexpress.  This is another.  I have a collection of Gingerbread dies and stamps that I love and cherish.
And last but not least in the 2020 collection is this delightful Ginger.  He will make you smile!  Thanks for stopping by to view my Gingerbread tag collection.  Hope you get inspiration for your 2021 tags.  I'm already thinking of a theme for this year.....lol  Until next time, stay safe, be happy, and crafty!
