Tags 4 You Day 5

Here are two Halloween tags made with this great stamp set.  Sorry for the short and late post but we have a busy day ahead of us, I can't be spending the day on the computer!

Tags 4 You Day 4

So I had to improvise a little.  Our Spring catalog is not out yet so when it came to Valentine's Day paper, I chose the Modern Medley DSP.  I thought the Black and Ivory pattern with Cherry Cobbler accents would be pretty romantic.  I made a few little packages all from paper and included the Happy Heart Day stamp from Tags 4 You.  I really like how they turned out.

Here is the Mini Milk Carton Die with some ribbon and a retired clip.

I made the box using the Envelope Punch Board.  I decorated it with some retired tulle in Cherry Cobbler and finished it off with a tag embossed with the Pretty Print embossing folder.

Here is the Petite Purse Die trimmed with some Very Vanilla satin ribbon.

And finally here is a CD case.  I might be showing my age here, do kids still burn CDs?  I was like queen of the mixed tapes growing up.

Stay tuned for Friday when I share some creative ways to dress up your Halloween treats!

Tags 4 You Day 3

Sorry this is so 3 month old son wasn't such a good napper today.  But for you late night blog surfers, you are in for a treat.  I made some Christmas tags which was perfect since it was chilly in my neck of the woods.  Enjoy!

Here are pictures of each tag individually.  

Check back tomorrow when I make some gift packages with the Happy Heart Day stamp from Tags 4 You.  On Friday I will be featuring the Halloween stamp with candy toppers.

Tags 4 You Day 2

Initially I was going to show some quick and easy projects with the Tags 4 You set.  The problem is...I have a hard time with quick and easy sometimes.  What started as let's make a five minute tag turned into a bigger ordeal.  However I love the finished product!  Here are some wine tags perfect for that bottle of wine you might bring your Thanksgiving hostess.

I made four more as well.  All tags use the Sweater Weather DSP and coordinating card stock (Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla) as well as the paper doilies sponged in those same colors.  I also added the leaves from the Wonderfall set and the Autumn Accents Die for the Big Shot.  I finished it off with the Tags 4 You Thanksgiving stamp, backed by the Decorative Label punch, some ribbon and a button with twine.

Check back tomorrow for some more tags!

Tags 4 You

I saw this stamp set in the Holiday catalog and I had to have it.  It is bundled with the awesome Label Bracket punch for $26.95 (for the clear mount stamp set).  I just knew I could do so much with this set, so for this week I will be featuring several different projects centering around this bundle.  Here is my first project, a set of four basic cards.  

First up is the Halloween one.  I used a small strip of Witches' Brew DSP, some Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, Pumpkin Pie Ribbon, and the cute bat from the Halloween Hello stamp set.  For a little extra, I embossed the Trick or Treat stamp and used the Black Glitter on the bat.  

Next on the Thanksgiving card, I used some Sweater Weather DSP along with Chocolate Chip Card Stock, Crumb Cake ribbon and some Champagne Glimmer Paper.  The leaf is from the Wonderfall set and its stamped in Sahara Sand.  

In this Christmas Card, I used some Seasons of Style DSP and some Cherry Cobbler Card Stock along with Old Olive Ribbon and the Red Glimmer paper.  

And finally for the Valentine's Day card, I used some retired Pool Party DSP along with some Real Red Card Stock and Silver Ribbon and Glimmer Paper.   

Simple cards put together quickly.  But we can do much more with this stamp set and punch, so stay tuned for some gift tags as well as some stepped up cards.  Thanks for looking!

Halloween Cards

With all the fabulous SU! products, I had to make some Halloween cards.  I will send them to my nieces and nephew.  Plus in making these cards, I discovered love for a new product... washi tape! 

In my first card I used the Halloween Hello stamp set and the Witches' Brew Washi Tape.

In the next card, I used the Perfectly You Hostess set, the hexagon punch, and the Witches Brew DSP.  I also did some embossing to add some texture.

Finally in this last card, I used the Halloween Bash and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets along with the Witches' Brew Washi tape. 

Check back next week where I show you how you can use one stamp set and matching punch to create  simple cards for the next four holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day)!

Halloween Decor

I love that I can use my Stampin' Up! goodies to create home decor pieces.  We love Halloween in the Gregorsky family.  We have all sorts of decorations up, including some that are handmade by me! 

First I wanted to share a banner I created from the Build A Banner kit in the holiday catalogue.  Aside from the kit, I also used the Witches' Brew DSP along with matching card stock, ribbon, and buttons. 

Second I wanted to share a Halloween Tree I made with some spooky ornaments.  I used some retired Halloween DSP and various stamp sets (some current and retired).

Finally, here is a little decor piece.  I have one of these for every season.  I used the Witches' Brew DSP and the Halloween Hello stamp set. 

You will notice that all my projects here use the rosettes.  Of course I have the Rosette Die for my big shot which makes these so easy!

Newest Creation

Have posted in awhile but on Thursday, July 25th I finished a project that had been in the works for awhile now.  My son, Thomas John Gregorsky was born weighing 9 lb and 8 oz and 21.5" long.  I have had some time to craft and am looking forward to sharing my projects with you.  For now here is one page I made for Tommy's album.
