How to Make a Puzzle Background

I saw the COOLEST background on Pinterest (made by Hammond and Penny) and used that technique to create this card. I put a whole new front on mine – this was so fun to make!

“Favorite Things” weSTAMP Christmas Party Gift Exchange

Our team Christmas party was last night and BOY OH BOY did we have a lot of fun! We all donned our fun Christmas jammies for the party.  We have been doing a “favorite things” gift exchange each year. Each person chooses a gift that has their “favorite things” in it! Some examples are: gift cards to favorite stores, candle, lotion, yummy holiday treat, a crafty gadget….the sky is the limit! The only criteria is that you wrap it “Stampin’ Up style” with cute creative packaging and a fun tag!

This was the gift I gave, you will have to see the video link below to see what it actually is and how to use it!

I created the tag using the Memories & More card pack and also the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and Love You More Than dies!

Here’s the fun tag for the Christmas peanut M&Ms. You can create a tag using the free PDF graphic I made from a free source online.

M&M Tags

Here’s the silly label I made, NOTE I totally altered their label and made it fun for the gift. I made up the gadget name and added the photos. LOL

Here’s the link to the gadget! It really will help to keep your die cutting machine in place and not slide around so much!

Gingerbread Treat Featuring Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Kit

This Gingerbread treat is so fun because the candy matches so well with the products! You know us stampers, we like everything to coordinate and MATCH! It’s all about the presentation! Who knew Kit Kat had GINGERBREAD FLAVOR! They are amazing! I just picked them up at our local Fry’s grocery store.

Here is a PDF for the gingerbread – just print it on to Cinnamon Cider cardstock. Gingerbread PDF

Here’s a video so you can see how I created the tag:
