Gingerbread Tags and Tag Holder

So last year I had created a whole line of Gingerbread tags as my theme for Christmas 2020 to send to my friends and family.  They didn't get to go out as planned because the lines were so long in the post office.
I created these tag holders to hold my tags for this years delivery.  I will be mailing these early.  With the situation currently with the post office, I will be mailing in  
The tag holder bag die can be found on Aliexpress.  The Gingerbread men as focal points on these holders are also from Aliexpress.

 Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Happy Crafting.

Button Box in various themes

Have you seen this die from Nicole Silhouette?  It makes such a cute box to give away little trinkets.  You will see in the following pictures, all the different themes that were used to create this fun box.  This die can be found on Aliexpress.
This one truly was used to house buttons for a happy mail project I did and sent to a friend.
I loved decorating this one with the little house scene on the top.

This is a Christmas theme one with the snowflakes and reindeer.
Here we have a cute Gingerbread theme.
Love the magnolia flowers on this button box.
This Halloween themed button box is simple adorable.  Even the haunted house makes me smile.

Hope this gives you inspiration to create different themes items with your dies.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Until next time,  Happy Crafting.

Loaded Dollar Tree Tray Swap

Have you seen the wooden trays at the Dollar Tree?  This is one that has been altered.  Altering these cute little trays is a favorite project for me.  You can do all sorts of things with them.  This is one created for the September Swap that yours truly was host of at the Loaded Envelopes Galore and More Facebook Group
Another Dollar Tree Item was included in this swap as well.  It was the wooden Pumpkin ornaments that were altered.
One of the requirements was to include a Memorydex Card.  This one was created with a pumpkin shaker die from Aliexpress.
Here is one of the altered pumpkins all decorated in packaging with a beautiful bag topper.
I love how they look together.  They are fun and easy to make.  There is a tutorial on my Youtube channel under the Loaded Dollar Tree Tray Swap.
Love this beautiful paper from Michael's.  This darker pumpkin is so beautiful.  Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this lovely project.  Keep checking back for more terrific projects to inspire you.  Happy Crafting, Friends!

Two altered small treat bags from Michael's was also a requirement.  Here you see these adorable bags with Cottagecutz dies.
One card was also a requirement.  This card also features a Cottagecutz die.

Sewing Themed Happy Mail

Todays project share is a Sewing Themed Birthday Happy Mail.  The card that you see above ended up being a mini  It was just so fun to make.  It is three layers and very dimensional.
This is the second and third page.  The second page has that cute Birthday Girl holding a card and the last page is a shaker Birthday Cake.  There is room on the back of these pages to mount pictures.  It's so adorable.  
This is a button box that matches this set.  It was filled with all types of shaped buttons.
This is a beautiful Sewing Machine Box.  It is quite large.  Kristieanne's Crafty Adventure on YouTube has a tutorial for this Sewing Machine.  There are no dies or files needed.  Just a scoreboard and paper cutter.
This project was inspired by Bona at Live, Love, Craft.  It's a little notepad made from Sizzix Tim Holtz Dress Form Die.

Isn't this adorable.  This is the Tonic Studios Cantilever Box Die with a bonus drawer that I created on the bottom.  This was fun to fill with Flowers that I created.
 This adorable Flip Top Box die is available on Aliexpress.  It makes a perfect little gift box for tea or candy.  Thank you so much for stopping by to view my projects today.  I sure do appreciate it.  Until Next time friends:  Happy Crafting!

Sewing Machine 3D Box

There's nothing like a sewing machine to grab my attention.  This project can be found on Kristieanne's Craft Adventures on YouTube.  You don't need any special dies or files to create it.  Just a score board and a paper cutter.
After the first sewing machine was complete, my creativity kicked into gear and I started creating more "themed" sewing machines.  This Paris themed Sewing Machine was born out of the love I have for Paris themed Projects.
When I was a little girl I remember my Mother sitting at a pedal foot sewing machine making dresses for me for school.  My Mother was a good seamstress.  When I was older, I followed in her footsteps and made my own clothes for about 10 years.
Of course, I knew I would have to do a Gorjuss Girl theme.  I love these girls so much and just had to include them in the machines I made.
Another favorite theme of mine is "Bees" so here we have one in that theme with velum Sunflowers.  This one makes me smile.  Thank you sew much for stopping by today to view my projects.  Until Next Time Friends......Happy Crafting!

Altered Dollar Tree Foam Carvable Pumpkins

Have you seen the carvable orange pumpkins at the Dollar Tree  Do you manage to pick a couple up every year?  Well so do  I've painted these before and they turned out beautifully.  But, I wanted to do something different and this fits the bill.  The above pumpkin was decoupaged with tissue paper that was also found at the Dollar Tree.

 Here is an example of images that were cut from fall themed napkins.  You peel the backing off a 2 ply napkin and cut the images out.  They can be decoupaged right on to your painted pumpkin.  They turn out beautiful.  I used the gloss Modge Podge to seal the pumpkins.  I like how glossy they look.  Almost like ceramic or glass.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  It was a pleasure to show you my pumpkins.  Hope you give it a try.  Until next time friends, happy crafting.

Christmas Flip Top Gift Box

Hello friends and welcome to another project share.  For today we are looking at a Flip Top box.  This die is available at Aliexpress.  This box reminds me of a Crayon box.  It's perfect for holding tea, candy, and other little trinkets.  The focal point on this box is a Cottagecutz die.
Whenever I create for Christmas, I always have to do at least one project in pink!
For this one, I was able to fit two teabags and a package with two oreo cookies.  Great gift!
Here's a bear in a hot cocoa cup from Cottagecutz.
And again done in pink!
This is also a cottagecut die called Teacup Snowman
Hope you enjoyed the project share today.  I appreciate your visit.  Until next time friends, Happy Crafting.
