Sale Week Orders

001

“Money is of no value; it cannot spend itself.  All depends on the skill of the spender.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our Sale Week Orders have arrived and are tagged and ready to go!  This batch of tags were made by making a baby wipe into a stamp pad.  Just drop three colors of ink (I used  Olive, Saffron and Coral) onto a baby wipe and stamp directly onto it.  The “To:” stamp is from the collection of stamps in the September Paper Pumpkin Kit and the wreath is made with the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set.   Happy Stamping and peacebewithyou!

Strawberry Jam Tag

Market Fresh, Acorny, Herb Tag 001

“But not alone at Christmastime comes holiday and cheer, for one who loves a little child has Christmas all the year.”

~Florence Evelyn Dratt

I have a goddaughter who just loves our homemade strawberry jam.  This one’s for her!  The jar is decorated with a silver doily, red glitter paper punched with a flower punch and the strawberries from the new Market Fresh stamp set.  I don’t know which was more fun…growing the strawberries, making the jam or decorating the jar! : )

An Ornate Tag Topper!

apples and more 002

“One cannot have too large a party.”

~Jane Austen

It’s a party of gift tags, with every (regal) color in the rainbow!  Yesterday I had a bit of free time in the morning and decided to try out the new Ornate Tag Topper Punch.  Using paper from my scrap box, I made up a set of gift tags using the birds nest from “World of Dreams” stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  The “To-From” is stamped from the “Cozy Christmas” stamp set in the Holiday Catty.  Tip:  If trimming the sides of the Very Vanilla cardstock becomes necessary, use the flat end and not the rounded end of the tag against the cutting ruler, flipping it over to cut the opposite side.

Have a weekend full of dreams,

Happy Holidays Tag 011

“But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life; and thanks to a benevolent arrangement of things, the greater part of life is sunshine.”

~Thomas Jefferson

Tomorrow is our quarterly Stamping Peace Leadership gathering and we’ll be making Christmas tags!  Everyone will receive a half case as seen in the photo, and we’ll make several tags including one of these Happy Holiday Tags that came in the November Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Our friend Mimi is bringing a mystery project for us, so there is a great sense of anticipation!  Refills for this Paper Pumpkin Kit just became available…it includes 8 Snowflake Cards and 12 of these Holiday Tags.  Have a great week-end!!!

A Pumpkin Blooming

Halloween Treat Bags 003

“What do girls do who haven’t any mothers to help them through their troubles?”

~Louisa May Alcott

In response to that quote I would have to say, “we thank God for sending us friends!”  My friend Mimi went on a trip recently and brought me home a little gift from Teavana, all decorated up with this beautiful tag that she made.  Thank you so much Mimi.  The tea is divine! The tag was cut out with the oval framelits and the pumpkin was punched with the oval punch.  The pumpkin pieces are embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The flowers are stamped with the “Too Kind” stamp set and the greens are stamped with the “Summer Silhouettes” stamp set.  Such a beautiful tag, Mimi!

Be Merry

Be Merry Tag 001

“Heap on more wood! – the wind is chill; but let it whistle as it will, we’ll keep our Christmas merry still.”

– Sir Walter Scott

Good Morning from Stamping Peace.  Another tag today, this one with the “Be Merry” Single Stamp.  It is stamped with Garden Green Ink and embellished with some Real Red candy dots.  It is mounted on Real Red cardstock.  The ribbon is some that I had on hand, it is not from Stampin’ Up.   Have fun stamping your Christmas tags!

Advent Peace,

Dawn
