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


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:

Thanks so much for stopping by today – hope I was able to give you some holiday project inspiration! xoxo, Sarah

12 Days of Christmas | Papertrey Ink Gift Card Cozy

As I type this…lots of tiny snowflakes are landing outside my window, lights are in the trees along the street and it indeed feels very much like Christmas in Baltimore.

On to the craftiness…I’m working with some dies from Papertrey Ink, stamps from Ellen Hutson and a paper kit from Echo Park to create some really cute gift card cosies. I’m super happy with how they turned out and you can check out the video here:

Here are the stills:


I thought these might make a good item to sell as a set at some craft fairs. What do you guys think?

green polka

This is totally my favorite but in all honesty it’s hard to beat a polk-a-dot if I’m judging!

The great thing about using these type of paper packs is that they are double-sided and add that extra little pop when opened.

I can’t get over that North Pole stamp, I want to put it on every tag I make this year.
