Happy Mail | Mini Folio feat. Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa Collection

Hey There,

Today I’ve got some Swapbot happy mail to share with you. I made this cute mini folio flip using the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa Collection (Crate Paper if you’re reading…please oh please do another printing of this!) lol. I love this collection – it’s oh so fun and I was thrilled I was able to get my hands on another 6×6 paper pad and chipboard sticker set for this season, but now I am running very low! I may have to add experimenting with digital collections to my list of things for the new year… Ok enough chit chat – here’s the video of what I came up with:

And here are your stills:

This was a really fun and quick project (depending on how much you embellish & what goodies you send).

I love the look of adding the snow pen on top of the chipboard – I’ve actually never thought of that before and now I’ve made a mental note to try embellishing chipboard in other different ways.

Goodies pictured are a washi sample (randoms from my stash) and sentiment stickers from Snow and Cocoa.

I’m having a lot of fun with that fake snow from Target this year 😉

Goodies pictured are gold glitter deer die cuts (Hampton Art) and a Snow and Cocoa mason jar.

Last, but not least I added in a glittery snow mix packet and wrapped everything together with some baker’s twine.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project – hope it gave you some inspiration for your own paper crafting goodness. xoxo, Sarah

Happy Mail | Tag Flip feat. Crate Paper Merry Days Collection

Hello!

Today I’ve got a tag flip to share with you…I love this so much I wanted to keep it for myself, sigh. But I’m going to have to let it go and hope the recipient enjoys it as much as I do. I was late to the party in ordering the Merry Days stuff so I wasn’t able to get everything I wanted (why, oh why don’t they stock more to begin with??) However between scrapbook.com and amazon, I was able to get the things I really wanted. Here is how I put the tag flip together:

Here are some still shots of the finished tags:

13 Days of Halloween – Day 10 | Wizard Friends

Hello There!

Today I’m sharing a card I made using Kindred Stamps Wizzard Friend stamp set. I decided to create a misty magical forest to place Hermione, Ron and Harry in and added a cauldron from the Bear Wear 2 stamp set for them to brew up a potion. Here is what I came up with:

Here are some close-ups of the finished card:

I feel like this card still needs a little something but I can’t figure out what. Any suggestions? I was thinking of adding brown on the tree trunks but didn’t want to mess up the foggy forest look though.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan you should check out this stamp set – it has some great sentiments for all different types of cards and there are coordinating stamp sets with other characters too.

Tuesday Morning Haul

Hello, hello, hello…

It is nice to be back home in Baltimore and finally feeling better. I was sick with a migraine the weekend before I left on vacation and then about mid-week in Florida, my allergies went crazy and then it turned into some type of sinus infection/cold and I’ve been dealing with that this past week since I’ve returned. What a couple of weeks! I feel like I’m finally back on track though 🙂

Here I’m sharing a quick Tuesday Morning haul from Saturday with you:

Hope everyone has a great week!

xoxo,

Sarah
