Stocking Stuffer

Looking for a quick last minute stocking stuffer? 

Instead of making snowman poop, reindeer poop or Grinch poop I just made this wrapper.  My intent was to make snowman poop.  But I just wasn't feeling it.  So instead I just kept it simple.  To make these mint wrappers simply measure the height and width and cut.  Then score along the sides.  In this case I used Tic Tacs.  I'm HORRIBLE with numbers so I was a bit frustrated with the measurements.  But I eventually got there.

This little Santa postage stamp is the cutest stamped on Kraft.  I added a little twine to tie it all together.  The paper I used is a Recollections Kraft Holiday pack. 

I used the small rounded corners punch to round the corners. 

These little Tic Tacs are all spruced up!

These would work with gum packs to or any mint treat.  What a fun crafty way to add a little flare to your Christmas Stockings. 

This will be my last post before Christmas.  I'll be spending the weekend with my family, cooking and relaxing.  Wishing you and yours a splendid Holiday.  And remember to take time to relax and enjoy.  The holidays after all are about spending time with those you love, remembering those that have left us and just enjoying the moment.



  1. Oh my you come up with some really neat ideas.. Have a great Christmas.. Looking forward to your posts in 2012.. Take Care

  2. This is a great idea. They came out so cute!!! Great job
    Happy Holidays to you and your family...
    See you after the holidays...enjoy your time off. :)

  3. What the hell? You sweat creations or what?!! I'm just in awe of all your cool projects! Merry Christmas lady!

  4. These turned out great!!! I love the postage stamp and the kraft cardstock you used.
    I have done these before in traditional colours, really love the vintage look you did.
    Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday :)

  5. Really cute idea! Merry Christmas to you and yours :)

  6. I really like the vintage look you pulled off. Neat that there's no 'poop' in sight, also!! My mom goes through tic-tacs like a madwoman - I'm so liftin' this!

  7. I should use this idea and come up with a clever saying about not smoking. A friend of mine is trying to quit and he used tic tacs to help supplement, so maybe a cute tic tac holder and a helpful saying will help him achieve his goals.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
