Happy Birthday Tags

Happy Birthday Tags

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I want to share a couple of tags that I created to celebrate someone’s birthday!.

Celebrate Birthday Tags

To create my tags I used a really great die set from My Creative Time. I’ve wanted this die set for a long time so I was when I finally got it I had to make something!. I got the actual two different dies as well as the layers for the dies. Here’s a closeup.

The design paper is from Stampin Up. I love the cute little ric-rak trim piece along the bottom. This is also part of the die set. The word celebrate is actually from another word die set by Tim Holtz.

Here’s a closeup of the other tag.

For this cute tag I added another smaller little stamp and die set from My Creative Time layered on the top. I added some striped grosgrain ribbon through the hole at the top of each tag and some white bakers twine. I really like how they turned out! And I really love this new die set! Have a great weekend!

Miss Kate Cuttables Ice Skate Tag

Miss Kate Cuttables Ice Skate Tag

Hello everyone! Today is my day to post for the Miss Kate Cuttables blog. I have a little gift tag to share. I created this winter themed tag using a file from Miss Kate Cuttables.


Here is my tag.

Ice Skate Tag front

As you can see I didn’t use all of the layers from the file. I wanted to add some texture and dimension so I added a fun wooden snowflake charm from ButterBee Scraps. I add some glittered ribbon trim from Stampin’ Up as well.

Ice Skate Tag Top closeup

I used some mini brads from Stampin Up along the skate laces.

It needed a little more sparkle so I added a large silver sequin to the center of the snowflake and then used my clear Wink of Stella brush marker along the edge of the skate as well as the heel. I added a little twine bow to finish it off.

I like how it turned out. This tag would look really cute on a gift bag or present. Or you could just hang it up.

Have a great day!

I did use an embossing folder on the front of my card to give the card some texture.

ButterBee Scraps New Products Project

ButterBee Scraps New Products Project

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a project I created with some new products that are now available in the Butterbee Scraps store. Monique sent me four new products and asked me to create a project. Here’s what I came up with.

BBScraps Mon Amour Boxed Mini Front

My inspiration for this project came from seeing a great project that Danielle Copley of Scrapbook Maven had done. Here’s the link to her project.

I used the beautiful Graphic 45 Mon Amour Paper Collection. I love the colors in this collection. I used two of the new products I was sent on the outside of the box. The corners and the key hole worked really well on this project. I also used some other elements from the Butterbee Scraps as well.

ButterBee Scraps Artistic Treasures Challenge Project

ButterBee Scraps Artistic Treasures Challenge Project

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a project I created for the ButterBee Scraps Artistic Treasures Challenge. For the challenge you are to select one product from the store and use it in three different ways. I selected the Bronze Metal Filigree.


I created a pocket card for my project.

BBScraps Challenge project front

I cut apart the filigree to create some small flourish to add to the corners of the front of my pocket card as well as some small leaves to add to the medium size resin ivory flower.

On the back of the card I used the filigree to layer underneath the small cut apart from the design paper.

BBScraps Challenge project back

I also wanted to use the filigree to create the pull tab for the tag that goes inside the pocket card. I love that Monique’s metal will bend really easily.

Well there you have it. That’s my project. I hope you will take part in the challenge over at ButterBee Scraps.

Miss Kate Cuttables Passport Booklet

Miss Kate Cuttables Passport Booklet

Hello everyone! Today I have a project to share with you using a fun Miss Kate Cuttables file called Passport.


I used my awesome Cricut Explore Air to create this fun realistic passport. I welded the back layer to the front layer then scored it down the middle. I duplicated the white layer so I would have one for both sides of my booklet.

MKC Passport Front

For the front of the booklet I wanted some gold leafing so the passport would look meow realistic. I punched out a white circle and used my Krylon gold leaf pen around the edges. I just wanted the gold to show up through the leaves.

On the inside I added a punched red stamp and a little photo frame.

That’s my project! Have a great day!
