Scrapbook.com Holiday Deal Insider


Hello everyone. It's Cyber Monday and today I have a super simple card for you, and one awesome deal... Scrapbook.com is offering Freebies and today's freebie is a 6 pack of Distress Crayons! Free! Yup! Free!

To shop Scrapbook.com (CLICK HERE!) to go to the online store. Don't forget they also have a large community of creators that add projects daily for inspiration using products that are sold at Scrapbook.com

For my project today, I happen to have some pre-embossed panels that I had in my stash but you could use virtually any background by heat embossing your own. I cut my panel to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 and popped it up onto a neutral gray card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding portrait orientation. I used craft foam cut slightly smaller than the panel itself and tear tape adhesive to attached it.

I used another embossed panel and my Distress Crayons to watercolor a very simple, two color combination and bring out the white vines of the embossed pattern.


I then used my Altenew Bold Alphabet dies to cut the word "joy" for the front of the card. I cut the letters from both the watercolor piece and also from three additional plain white cardstock pieces. I layered them all together using Nuvo Deluxe liquid adhesive and then placed them on the card panel justifying to the upper center.

The sub sentiment was stamped using sticky embossing ink and heat embossed using Ranger White embossing powder onto a piece of Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Cardstock. I used my Fiskars wire guide paper trimmer to cut it into a small sentiment strip and attached it to the panel using Ranger Letter It Clear Foam Adhesive.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. I hope I've inspired you to create something today. Don't forget to check out all of the amazing deals that Scrapbook.com has this holiday season. Including all of the free with purchase deals coming soon.

Heffy Doodle 25 Days of Christmas Tags



Hello everyone.

Today I have a fun Christmas tag for you using Heffy Doodle products. We at Heffy Doodle are participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags today. (CLICK HERE!) for more information and inspiration for holiday themed tags. Each day there is a different company sponsor and a ton of inspiration comes too.



I started with the Heffy Doodle Tag A Long die set and some Neenah 110 lb. Solar White cardstock. I cut the fun tag out from the heavy weight white cardstock with my Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  I also cut the background from Papertrey Inks Hawaiian Shores cardstock.

I then took the same background die from the Tag A Long die set and the Heffy Doodle Slopey Joes die set and cut two strips of Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust Glitter cardstock. I made sure that I was leaving enough room to stamp a sentiment above my landscape as well as ensure enough room for all of my trees and presents I was about to cut out.

I stamped my images from Heffy Doodle's Santa's Village stamp set as well as the Wanna Build A Snowman stamp set with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink onto the same Neenah 110 lb. cardstock. I colored my images today with my Copic Markers. I have them listed in a pin-able Copic Color Map. I like to save them to my Copic Pinterest Board and it helps me keep track of color combinations. I used the coordinating dies of both sets to cut them out.


For the sentiment, I stamped the "winter wishes" from the Wanna build A Snowman set onto the teal background using Nuvo Clear Mark embossing ink. I also stamped the "sending you our warmest" from the same set onto My Favorite Things Black Licorice cardstock also with clear ink. I heat embossed both sentiments using Ranger White embossing powder and my Wagner Heat Tool. I cut down the sentiment strip using my Fiskars wire guide paper trimmer.

Once all of the main elements of the tag were created, I could then start to put it together. The tag itself is very easy to put together. This tag can also easily be made as a shaker tag. This time I just adhered most of the Tag A Long dies together using Nuvo Deluxe Liquid Adhesive. I put some Scotch 3m Foam tape to pop up one of the layers of glitter paper for the ground and I started to either adhere flat or pop up with foam tape all of the images you see on the tag.


To finish off my tag I needed to add some ribbon and twine. I decided to match the vibrant pink I used on the images. I have had most of my ribbon for a long time. You can no longer purchase the exact ribbon I used but I linked a fine alternative below for you to check out. I also added some black and white twine to coordinate with the black and white sentiment.

I hope I've inspired you to create something handmade today. Make sure you (CLICK HERE!) to visit the latest 25 Days of Christmas Tags blog post that Tracey organizes.
