October has arrived and I’m wondering just where September went. Before you know it, Christmas will be upon us.
What’s a girl to do?
Well, if you want to not be busy during the hustle and bustle of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities, I highly suggest getting at list one thing crossed off your list–the Christmas crafting, such as cards, tags, and even documenting preparations.
And guess what.
When I visualized Wrapped, I wanted something that you could easily make tags with–and even layer different tag sizes. There are different backgrounds and elements that can be used together or individually. I also loved the idea of having different To/From tags to mix it up.
Bundle Up is just as it implies. While all components can stand on their own, they really shine when bundled together! Bold phrase paired with a delicate phrase and placed with an icon (insert ‘okay’ hand sign here).
With Merry I wanted a bunch of big icons to make merry with (can I say that?). If you know me and my style, I have a tendency to go on the small side. But with having several Christmas stamps under this Santa’s belt, I felt it was time to go big with a few fun things to add to your merriment of the season.
And how stinkin’ cute are they when all three sets are used together–and combined with the Brooklyn stamps (gasp)…like our Miss Sheree is sharing with us today!
I can’t stand it! These packaging tidbits are so freakin’ adorable! I want the lot of ’em. :)
Here’s what Sheree has to say:
The new Merry, Bundle Up and Wrapped stamp sets were so much fun to use! I’ve mixed and matched stamps from all three sets to create gift tags of different shapes and sizes and I love how easy it was to create the different looks.
I also created some larger tags using the Brooklyn stamp set to layer in behind the smaller tags. For the gift wrapping I used one of the text stamps from the Wrapped set to create a stamped strip of paper to wrap around the box tucked under the striped ribbon, then layered two of the tags together and tied them to the bow with some little silver bells so the gift sounds like Christmas too!
So like, seriously. Did you really look at the stamped strip behind the ribbon? Ack! Love it! These are just all so amazing and so easy to make.
