Scrapdaworld’s Christmas/Winter Tag Swap – My Entry

4 Dec
Tag for Scrapdaworld Christmas/Winter Theme Tag Swap

Peace Ornament Tag

My friend Tmika who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube always hosts fun swaps.  This time it was a Christmas/Winter shaped tag swap.  I had a different tag in mind but I had technical difficulties with it lol.  My Cricut Expression was just not cooperating!

So, I came up with this tag and I like it.  I glittered the tag in stages and it worked well.  I really like the white and gold.

I made a box envelope to package them…

Apple Treat Cup Card Picture Frame – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Apple Treat Cup Card Picture Frame

Apple Treat Cup Card Picture Frame

I created this apple picture frame using the Apple Treat Cup Card file from The Cutting Cafe. The focus for this post is back to school and we could use one of four files. The other three are the Apple Shaped Card, Pencil Treat Cup Card, and the Pencil Shaped Card.

I used the top and the back of the treat cup and backed it with white chip board.  I added an easel on the back.

I left the top open so I can slide a photo inside. I added a gold glittered stem and leaf and a gold sticker that says So Sweet.

Super Twisted Note Card Swap

Super Twisted Note Card Swap

Cards and Envelope Box

My friend Tmika host great swaps all the time on YouTube. The latest one has us using techniques and embellishments.  The 3 x 3 cards had to have a combination of four or more things going on.  I used five techniques…dry embossing, distressing, texture paste stippling, glittering the texture paste, and splattering/ misting, and four embellishments…flowers, punches, twine, and a dazzle sticker.

Here is a close up of the card…

Christmas/Winter Themed Shaped Tag Swap

24 Nov

My friend Tmika who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube hosted another great swap featuring gift tags.  I made a shaker window scene for my tag, including curtains, snow, and a deer.

Basically we had to make a shaped tag using at least two embellishments and it had to have to and from on the back.  I placed my tags on a matted card.

The deer is more visible in this picture.

Then, I bagged it in a clear bag and added a candy cane striped clothes pin with a snowflake added to it.  In the back a bag of goodies is attached.

This is how the tags were packaged.

I really like how my tags came out and I hope the ladies in my swap group like them too.  Thanks  for stopping by.  Here’s my video giving more details…

Altered Pill Bottles and Pocket Tags for Crafty Meet Up Weekend

26 Aug

This past Thursday through Sunday , I hosted some of my friends that I met through YouTube!  Scrapdaworld/Tmika, Gemzisle/Sheryl, and Scrap Elegance/Katryce came to visit and we had a blast!  On Friday, Tmika, Sheryl, and I went to the Scrapbook Expo is Schaumberg, IL .  We met up with three other YouTubers, two Elizabeths and an Amy!  We had a blast with them!

Tmika, Sheryl, and I decided to make things for each other as we have in the past.  Katryce decided to come later, but I made one for her also.  We did tags instead of cards and altered pill bottles!   I let the ladies fill their bottles up with resin pieces so they were happy.  Here are some pictures…

I entered a swap hosted by my friend Tmika who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube.  It was the sweet treat postcard and dangle swap and we had to make a 4 x 6 postcard with a sweet treat theme and a coordinating dangle.  Here is what I came up with.

The charm is something I have never done.  The scalloped diamond and the cake charms are made from patterned paper cut out on, my Silhouette Cameo.  I cut each twice and then cut acetate pieces to cover it an make it sturdy.

Coordinating dangle charm made with patterned paper and acetate sheets cut out on the Cameo.

Teeny Tiny Embellishment Swap

My friend Tmika alway hosts fun swaps and this one, although challenging, was fun.  For this swap, all the embellishments had to be two inches of less.  That is kind of hard to do.  A couple of mind ended up just a little over two inches.

Every swap needs great packaging.  I found these pencil boxes on clearance for ten cents about five months ago.  When I bought them I had no use in mind.  They worked out perfectly for this swap!

Monthly Friendship Swap – February

11 Mar
February Friendship Swap Items -  Round Boxes, Dress Form Screen Card, Round 3 x 3 note cards, box envelopes, and bag of goodies.

February Friendship Swap Items – Round Boxes, Dress Form Screen Card, Round 3 x 3 note cards, box envelopes, and bag of goodies.

Some of my friends Tmika, Sheryl, Shanta, and I decided to do a monthly swap.  This will help one keep in the crafting world as she has very little time, and it will help the rest of us use some of our products and maybe even try something different.  Each month one of us gets to choose what the swap will be.  The idea is to keep it small so that it won’t cost a lot to mail.

February was Tmika’s month to choose.  We were to make a card that the others can use, five 3 x 3 cards and envelopes, and include goodies worth $2.  The style was to be shabby chic.  So I made round cards, something I have not done before.

Each card has a different little sentiment on it…thanks, thank you, sorry, hugs, and love you.  Here is a close up view of one…

You can find more detail on it from my February 21st post.  Then, I made a round box to hold the cards.  I used the Round Box Template, also from The Cutting Cafe.

Christmas/Winter Shaped Gift Tag Swap

2 Nov
Fireplace Shaped Gift Tag

Fireplace Shaped Gift Tag

My friend Tmika, Scrapdaworld on YouTube, held another awesome swap and I loved being a part of it!  She hosted a shaped gift tag swap a couple of months ago (check out my tag post) and this was a variation on it.  I decided to do a fireplace for my tag and I actually love it.  At first I struggled with it as I had used wood grain paper for the mantle and bottom.  It was just too brown and had no pop whatsoever.  So I dug into my Christmas paper stash and found this paper.  The pattern scale was great as I needed a 12 x 12 sheet of paper to cut out all I needed and most of the patterns were too large.

Back of Tag

The tags had to be shaped and had to have at least two embellishments, a to/from on it, and had to have some way to hang it.  I used a lot of metallic, glitter, and foil elements.

I love the mantel as I draped tinsel ribbon wrapped with miniature lights and hung glitter stockings.  It is so cute, just like a real Christmas Mantel.  I started to put candles and statues on top if it but I thought they would not be as durable since they would just be little pieces with no backing for stability.

I used a resin log for the firelog

I found resin logs from Michael’s fall Recollections embellishment line.  They were longer, I just sawed them down to size.  I also used some of my glitter to actually put glitter on the fire.  The bricks are a texture paste.  I was going to use brick printed paper and when I told Tmika what I was doing she suggested using a texture paste.  I am glad she mentioned that as I had not thought of it and really like it on my tag.

The Silhouette Online Store just added a fireplace box gift card holder and I thought it would be perfect packaging.  I resized it and used Tim Holtz’s frosted film over a layer of clear film that actually was the wrapper from the Silhouette mat I had just opened.  There was a little bubbling of the film but not a lot.

All six of my tags.

There are five other members of my group and I also made one for Tmika.  Three have red garland and three have green garland.

I had fun with this swap after I got through the paper issue.  I really loved the way they turned out and I hope that my group members will also.  Thanks for stopping by.  Before you go, take a look at my YouTube video…

Shaped Gift Tag Swap with The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project Packaging

High Heel Shaped Tag with The Cutting Cafe Packaging

High Heel Shaped Tag with The Cutting Cafe Packaging

This week for The Cutting Cafe, our theme was packaging. This was perfect timing as I was also in a swap hosted by Scrapdaworld (details coming further in the post). I used the Homemade Just for You Set for the label wrap, which actually is a cut file that is included. Then I used two sentiments from the Test Tube Candy Holder Set.

Make sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th to see all the other design team projects focused on packaging! Leave a comment and you may win three free files in the drawing on the 21st of the month post!

Now, for the swap, we had to make shaped tags, use three embellishments, have to and from on it, and only use general sentiments.  There were six in my group so we had to make five, but I made six so Tmika (Scrapdaworld) would have one. Below are a few more pictures and my video.  Make sure you check out Scrapdaworld’s You Tube channel.  She will be putting up videos of all the swaps.

Thanks for stopping by!
