Blank 2000 x 2000-4If you're shopping for a gift for a crafty person in your life, these cardmaking kits are all-inclusive with everything that is needed to make some beautiful handmade cards.

This first kit is one of my favorites!  The completed cards are awesome with beautiful gold foil accents...the Looking Up Card Kit.
This kit makes 15 cards, 3 each of 5 designs, using the included Looking Up Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Folded card size is 4" x 6".

It comes with a classy looking box and all you'll need to do is wrap a pretty red bow around it and add a gift tag. The printed cardboard box is 9-1/4" x 9-1/4" x 1-7/8".

LOOKING UP CARD KIT (ENGLISH)

This box also makes for great storage for the completed cards.  And, as you can see, the stamp set comes with some super sentiments.  You can even use sentiments on multiple labels.  Need more birthday cards?  Just use the birthday sentiment on more of the labels. 

Here is another kit that I thought would make a great gift.  It's the Simply Citrus Card Kit.

This kit has a fun and flirty feel. Included are supplies to make 15 cards, 3 each of 5 designs, using the included Simply Citrus Photopolymer Stamp Set which is also included.  The folded card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
The kit includes 9-1/4" x 9-1/4" x 1-7/8" printed cardboard box ready for gift giving...just add a pretty ribbon!

SIMPLY CITRUS CARD KIT (ENGLISH)

DIY Christmas Gift Tags with Stampin' Up! Tag Buffet

DIY Christmas Gift Tags Stampin' Up! Tag BuffetFor this week's Facebook Live, my husband, Jackie, and I teamed up for another "kit together" for some beautiful DIY Christmas Gift Tags. 

This kit from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog is called appropriately, Tag Buffet.  There is a coordinating stamp set sold separately but honestly, you can create these tags and use on your Christmas gifts without the stamped sentiments.

Originally, I had asked Jackie to just punch out the tags and images and sort them for me.  When he asked if I wanted him to put them together, of course, I wasn't going to turn him down.  Here's the video from the Wednesday Craft & Chat on Facebook. 

In the video, you saw that you can also use these tags to make Christmas cards. 
Here is a look at those cards which would be great for sending to family or friends!
