Here's todays free pattern:





Today's stamps we are showcasing is called:  

Tag It


Here's my creation:




I wanted to create a fun way to write down your Christmas Wish list so I came up with this!

I took the SVG for the large tag from Tag It and did an offset feature (on my SSDE).  Then I dragged it down to get the size I wanted.  I didn't change the width at all, just the length.  Then I took the SVG of the flag stamp and lined it up on my tag. 



 I inserted a perforated line towards the end of the svg.  I wanted to leave enough room for the brad that will hold these all together.  This way once the person writes their wish on the piece of paper they can tear it off and put it into the jar.  The svg was longer than the actual stamp so I masked off the back of the stamp, then stamped once.  Next I inked up a portion of the stamp and laid it over the existing stamp already to give me longer lines that fit my design.  I never removed the mask part of the stamp.

I used another one of the tags to make a matting for the words Christmas Wishes (which I created in my SSDE software then did a print and cut using the SVg of the stamp I was using).  The snowman head is from Winter Treats which is currently available in the store HERE

To color him I used my Spectrum Noir Markers and some Glossy Accent on his hat.  Once again I used my trusty SVG's on the Snowman.  Gosh I love those things!

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Santa Claus is coming to the Sisterhood of Crafters!  Ho ho ho...let's see how crafty you can go!! The new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters is to create a project with Santa Claus on it.

I took some paper from Graphic 45's T'was the Night Before Christmas (I think that is what it was called).  Then I added several layers of cardstock to it. Since they looked like postcards I thought it would be fun to use it as letters to Santa. I had each girl address it to Santa. Then they will write their Christmas wishes on the back. I wanted to add ribbon to it before the picture was taken but my girls freaked out. My intentions will be to hang them on the tree for Santa to see.   Something I thought would be cute to save for years to come.

So get your Santa on and come craft with us at the Sisterhood of Crafters. Have a great day and HAPPY CRAFTING!

Get Your Jingle On


Here's my creation:


I decided to go with a country looking Christmas tree for this project.  I know I have said this before but I absolutely LOVE the fact that these stamps come with SVG's!  They come in so handy while you are designing your projects on your software.  This sentiment comes from the soon to be released stamp set Get Your Jingle On. This Christmas tree gift box is from SVG Cut's set called Santa's Helpful Elves and you can find that HERE.

Snips and Snails

Good morning!

I wanted to share this adorable gift box I made in a baby boy theme.  My sister is having a baby boy so I have boys on my mind!  This would be cute as a shower favor or a holder for a small gift. I put socks in this one but I plan to make another one and put rolled up Onesies in there.  I think these would make adorable Baby Shower decorations!!


I added some stitching to the rocking horse with my white gel pen.
The paper is from American Crafts My Baby paper pad.




I used Snips & Snails stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas which you can find HERE.

There are so many other things this set can be used for, it is not just for Babies!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting!!

Hugs,
Lisa B.
