Cute Owl Gift Tags

My girls were invited to an Owl themed birthday party yesterday and I made these tags for the gifts:

 

I love to use solid image stamps (stamped images that you do not need to color) for quick tags. I used the Wise Old Owl, Small Banners and Carnival Alpha (small) from Pink Persimmon. I love how the owls stamp in pieces so I could make the wings open up to hold the banners. The birthday girls’ mom liked the stamped owls so much she asked if she could borrow the owl stamp to make thank you cards! And of course I said “yes!” 😀

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

40% off everything today only! {Happy Valentine’s Day!}

Let me be the first to wish you a happy Valentine’s Day! I love Valentine’s day, I always have, I mean what’s not to love? Also since it is February 14th that means that this (the shortest month of the year but in the North it feels like the longest!) is half over and I don’t know about you but I am ready for March to roar in and bring with it some spring! This has been the snowiest winter I can remember-and living in Maine that says something! Anyway, back to Valentine’s Day, here are some gifties for my peeps:

I wrapped the presents in this beautiful birdcage paper (dollar spot at target, it will be cheap tomorrow LOL!) and made some quick tags using my Cricut & SCAL software and the SVG files in the A Little Lovin set from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff….

Did I mention that EVERYTHING in my shop is 40% off today only!?! What are you waiting for? SHOP 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful day with your loved ones, I can’t wait to see all of the lovely Valentines my kids will bring home from school today and I hope they enjoy the gifts from me…

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

$1 retirement stamp sets and new Valentine goodies!

Hey! It’s time to make room for new product in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff shop at MyGrafico and I have a bunch of retiring sets that you can snag for $1, You will still be able to purchase the sets in my Shophandmade shop {at full price} but why not grab a deal now?

I have been in the mood for Valentine’s day this week {with a cold New England winter ahead it is something nice to look forward too plus I have ALWAYS loved Valentines day!} Here are some cards I made with the SVG die cutting files that are included in my new A Little Lovin’ kit from Lindsay’s stamp Stuff, I used my Cricut and SCAL software to die cut all the shapes.

I love how these “sweet” cards are not Valentine specific, heck you can use these long after Valentines day!

And of course a valentines card for hubby {let’s hope he isn’t reading my blog today 🙂 LOL}

Tip: When making a batch of cards arrange all of your die cuts on one mat separated by color, then place different colored papers on the mat. That is how I cut these designs all in one pass in about 5 minutes!

Now here is a look at the A Little Lovin’ set, you get clip art in JPG and PNG format plus fully editable EPS and SVG art files and SVG cutting files that have been specifically optimized for die cutting.

Did you know that most of my clip art sets come with SVG cutting files at no extra charge, gotta love a little something extra:) Speaking of a little something extra here is a cute Valentine digital stamp freebie. To download click on the image, then right-click on the larger picture and choose “Save as” Easy peasy (and no waiting for 4shared-I hate that!)

Make die-cuts “POP!”

Since my son is having his birthday party this week I decided it was about time I scrapbooked the photos from last years birthday party. He had a bowling party last year so I used my new Bowling fun Clip Art & SVG set and Bowling Fun Papers which are 40% off today only along with everything else at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff {mygrafico shop only} and made this:

Want to print 12″ pattern paper but only have a standard 8.5″ wide printer? Here’s how: Use legal size paper (8.5″x14″) and  use the legal size setting in your printer. Click “center on paper” and set the scale to 100% and select landscape orientation if your paper will be used horizontally or portrait if the design will be used vertically. Then pint, think of all of the cool borders, titles and papers you can make. You can get a 12″x8.25″ printed piece of paper this way!

It's easy to give your die cuts dimention. Ink, layer and highlight! Thes svg die cutting files are included in the Bowling Fun set!

Now lets talk about die cuts. You can use your cricut machine and scal software to make cute paper pieced embellishments. To give them more dimension try inking the edges with brown chalk ink (I like chestnut roan by colorbox-the small cat’s eye size) before piecing then adding white highlights with a gel pen (Ranger Inksentials is the best!) You will have a custom multi layer look that is so cool! Here are some close ups of the bowling fun die cuts on the scrapbook page:

The word “Strike” was simply cut from a font (LD buttercream) I just typed it in scal, clicked weld and cut to get my letters to link together…that was all there is to it, easy peasy!

And here is a quick journaling tag I made with one of the clip art designs in the set, you get so much in this kit!

This project qualifies for the following challenges: Corrosive (no white paper), Craftilicious, Inky Impressions, PaperKutz, PearTree (anything goes), Crafty Calendar (birthdays), Cupcake Craft (boys and their toys), Kabers Challenges (kids) and Raise the BAr (hobby/sport/interest)

And here is a look at the 2 sets I used today, I just released them in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff shop this week, grab them today and save 40%!
