Tuesday Tip- Easy Christmas Projects #4

Diy-last-minute-christmas-gift-aChristmas is almost here so today's tip is an easy project that you can create as a gift with supplies from your crafting stash and maybe a little something from your kitchen!

Need a gift for a neighbor?  Sit back, relax, and watch this video to see the easy process. 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Study your glass to determine what width you would like your strips to be.
  • For this one, the strips measure 2 1/2 x 12 and 1 1/2 x 12.
  • The excess was trimmed after wrapping the paper around the glass.
  • Here, die cuts and ribbon were used for embellishing, but you can easily use a stamped image or punched pieces.

Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Make A Card for A Guy

Birthday-card-for-a-guy-aFor today's Makeover Monday we have a birthday card for a guy that gets a real pop from the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Going to be quick post...a little tired and emotionally exhausted from spending the majority of the last 24 hours at the hospital with my mom.  Thankfully, she's home and doing fine.   I'm ready to relax, give thanks, and put my feet up!  To those of you in my Facebook group that knew of this, thanks for your prayers!

So, here we go with the video that inspired this card.  The technique is replaced with the designer paper!

Christmas Crafting on Facebook LIVE

Just finished some Christmas crafting and chatting on Facebook LIVE in my Ink and Inspirations Stampers Group!  It's been a while and it's always so much fun to share a little crafting time with friends.

The first project was this Christmas cone to use with this antique bed spring.  I plan to fill it with mints to use in my stamp room.  It all started with a 8" square piece of the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper.

Diy-christmas-table-decorThese next two are smaller cones created with a 4" square piece of designer paper.  They make cute ornaments with a sweet treat tucked inside.
