Wanted-bag Rivetmaleapproved In giant size!!  This turned out very cool!  I wanted to give my dad this really really yummy vanilla hot chocolate (order here), and thought a giant bag in a box was the perfect presentation.

The papers are the Wanted series and the stamps are from the Wanted stamp set.  And, imagine this, they work really well together.

Now, the really perceptive people out there might wonder where I got the circle to go under the scallop punch.  Take a close look – it's two tabs from the round tab punch layered on top of each other to make a perfect circle! 

Colours are Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Really Rust, and Very Vanilla.  Contact me to order your sets today!

Rivetmaleapproved What a great page!  Made by my team member and friend, Denise

I love the colour combination and the fun use of various star images and sets.  She's used a wheel that is traditionally a Christmas wheel, but used in purple, it becomes quite apprpriate on this non-holiday page.

StampinupstasSuch clever ladies out there!

loads of love christmas card Another spinner card!  To see the first on, scroll down.

This is one that brings back memories from when I was a beginning stamper and an enthusiastic customer when I lived in Seattle!  I made this card at a class my demonstrator put on one year.

Loads of Love was the #1 selling stamp set in New Zealand last year (if memory serves).  It's adorable and fits most any occasion.  And there are so many different ways to colour in  . . . 

I just had a brainstorm.  Send me your favourite ways to colour in, I will compile a list, and add a page on the blog.  You can embellish and add why you like it, etc if you wish; I'll be sure to give credit, of course.  Look forward to hearing from you!

I've noticed in the years I have been teaching papercrafting that every Christmas there seems to be THE project everyone loves.  2009 brings us the "Rivetmaleapprovedbag in a box" for an easy gift idea.

And I love this quick project, too!  You can make two out of one sheet of our designer series papers and all the rest can be made out of scraps and bits & pieces, so easily a project that can be done for less than $1.

The Dashing paper has been so overwhelmingly popular this year! The Real Red, Old Olive, and River Rock combination is striking, festive, and still easy gift ideasslightly unexpected.

Rivetgreatgiftidea Here's version two of the pop can for this year.  (scoll down to see another design) So, depending on your mood, these can be bright and fun or more sophisticated.
 
The stamps used on this project are often missed in the catalogue because easy gift ideas handmadeit's such a small set.  It's called Snow Flurries and the words are from Short & Sweet.  If you love these colours, grab the papers now as they will be deleted Nov 30th!

RivetbudgetwiseMy favourite packaging idea revisited!  Not only great for Christmas, but perfect for birthday party favours (or invites!!) or any other fun occasion.

I've done this one up using the Wintergreen Designer Series Paper and the Crazy for Christmas set, which is perfect for this project.  I quickly coloured in here & there with the Stampin' Write markerrubber stamping classes pop cans and done! 

I have just a few slots left in December for classes – let me know if you'd like to book a class for EASY and NO TEMPLATE packaging ideas!  It's a great way to also learn rubber stamping techniques!

This is a fun and easy little gift for Christmas!  All you need is an double easy gift ideas handmade aero bar wrapped chocolate  bar and a few bits of paper and card!

Now that I have finally bought myself this set, I've used it heaps.  And now that I can replace markers individually (November's promotion), I've been far less stingy about letting my customers use them!  These cute trees were coloured in with various bright colours to match the Designer Series Paper and the wrapper with just a dash of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

The words are also in that Crazy For Christmas set.  Use your marker to stamp out just a portion of your stamp, giving you greater flexibility with the images you already own.  Markers available as singles just until November 30th! 

If you are overwhelmed by which colours to order, here are my top ten suggestions:

1. Chocolate Chip

2. Real Red

3. Old Olive

4. Basic Black

5. Bashful Blue

6. Summer Sun

7. Regal Rose

8. Certainly Celery

9. Mellow Moss

10. Elegant Eggplant
