Tippin' on Tuesday - English Christmas Cracker

Happy Holidays!  For the next several posts, I am going to share some fun packaging ideas for you for this holiday season.  Today, I will start with the English Christmas Cracker.  These are easy and a lot of fun to make.  Each one will hold a couple of Lindor Chocolates in them and would be a pretty addition to your Christmas place settings.  The video will show you just how quick and easy they are to make.  Enjoy!

Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Birthday Blossoms

 I really tried - I did but I just couldn't make my card using just one stamp set.  Beginning the Fast & Fabulous on Friday posts have challenged me to "keep it simple" but I think I am yet to get it down to just one stamp set.  Some day!  In today's post, I only used the second stamp set for the inside sentiment so that is a progress, right?
Again, if you watch the video, you will see that the original of this card actually looked different than this one - simply by a change in the side of the Designer Series Paper and an ink pad change.  It is so much fun to mix things up!

Tippin' on Tuesday - Customizing Your Kits Using the Watercolor Christmas Kit

 Are you one of those stampers who thinks "no, kits aren't for me - they are too basic"?  Well, today's video and post is all about customizing your kit so you don't have basic cards.  Pull from your existing craft supplies or use up some of those embellishments that you have been hoarding.  Come on, I know you have been hanging onto them!
Here is a sampling of the cards that I made using the kit and some coordinating products that I had on hand.  I did pull from various stamp sets for the inside sentiments to mix them up a bit but you can just use the one included with the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  I even used the left over pieces from the kit to stamp and punch out the bows and berries where needed.  There is so much more that you can do with these kits - give it a try!   Take a look at the video to see all of the things that I do with the envelope liners!
