I created the tags using my photoshop software. They are approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I printed at my local print shope, then cut each tag out using my paper trimmer. I bought the mini lunch bags from Michaels and if you use your 50% off coupon, you can get 16 bags for 1.50! I adhered the tags to the bags with a strong scrapbook adhesive. To create the candy holders, I just used my circle punch (square also works) and punched two holes, one on top and one on bottom, and slipped the pixie stick right in! That's it.. I have recently added these items to my store, come by and take a peak! They are pesonalized with your child's name, I have created a boy and a girl set! Enjoy! http://www.simplycreatedesigns.etsy.com/

1. Adhere two sheets of paper together approx 8 1/2 x 8 and lay in a diamond
2. Roll the paper into a cone and stick together with double-sided tape
3. Cut off the triangle portion at the top of the cone to create a circle
5. For the top, gather tulle and glue to cone (hot glue works best)
6. Adhere ribbon to the center of the tulle and use hot glue to adhere
7. Cut and glue an 8" piece of ribbon to the inside of each cone in order for it to hang
8. Decorate with Glitter Chipboard, buttons, embellishment, lace, or whatever you like!
9. Hang individually, fill with candy or connect cones with ribbon to create a Halloween Garland

I bought this jar at my local craft store. I created each tag in the computer. I used a dainty, pink damask paper as the background with black and white accents. Scallop tags were cut with a 2" scallop punch and hooked onto a ring. The tags inlcuded titles like: First bath, First smile, First steps, etc. where mommy can write the date on the back of each tag. I also created 12 square memory tags that are pre-printed with the following wording: 1-12 months, weight and length. All mommy needs to do is simply jot down baby's information for that month. I also included a special tin for to save a lock of baby's hair (a small vellum envelope fits perfect inside the tin to seal baby's hair). I created mini tags using a 2"x3" tag punch. They are blank which allows mommy to write down special memories of baby. You can be as creative as you want, even personalize it to baby's theme. Thanks for looking. http://www.simplycreatedesigns.etsy.com/

Hi its Crafty Tuesday at What's Scrappin with a DIY Burlap Wreath to enhance your door. These is the easiest and cheapest way to spruce up your front door, you can create one for every season and holiday.
3 yards of burlap ribbon
hot glue gun
To began, hot glue the end of the ribbon to the wreath and then begin wrapping it. Carefully wrap the ribbon around the foam, slightly overlap each "layer" so you can not see the foam wreath. Hot glue the last piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath. Now the fun part, began decorating. I used my MS butterfly punch from old text paper to create 7 butterflies and inked the edges. I used a dab Crafter's Pick glue to hold them in place. I inked the edges of a 7 gypsies HOME tag, and attach a pearl pin before gluing it down. Then I arranged the 6 paper flowers above and around the tag adhered them with a glue gun. I added a couple vintage buttons as the center for the flowers. You can atttach a small piece of ribbon (with glue gun) to the back of the wreath in order for it to hang on the door. You can create your design and change it up for the seasons! Enjoy....

2 Nesting Boxes
10 boxes of crayola crayons
9 glue sticks
8 liquid glue
1 box of kleenex
3 yards of ribon (any color)
1 sheet 12x12 scrapbook paper
3 mini binder clips and ribbon for clips
I stacked and glued the boxes down. Then I added each layer of supplies, you can glue them down to the boxes or tie with string, whichever you prefer. I did not glue the supplies down since I wanted them to still look nice once taken off. Then I added the Kleenex box to the top layer (wrapped it in nice scrapbook paper) andglued it down. I also created the signs and the cupcake toppers and wrappers to match. thanks! Denise from www.simplycreatedesigns.etsy.com

I saw a sketch done by Liz Chidester over at Birds Of A Feather and for some reason immediately thought how kewl it would be to have a background picture in place of the background paper. The boys were on a deer outing so I was not distracted by the usual cry's of "What are we eating", or "When are we going to eat?" and started playing with this picture.
It wasn't long before I had it turned into a B& W printed transparency that looked like this:
I used PSE 8.0 but you could use what ever photo editing software that you have. I did up the contrast till the black was nice and black. I used the transparency sheets that have the rough on one side. You'll want to print on the rough side so you don't end up with a smear of a photo. I ran my transparency through the printer just like any other piece of paper. I did let it dry for a few minutes. But it was rough, I wanted to complete this layout!
I had been saving some papers and embellies from ADORN it for a Four Wheeling page and this was for sure the one to use it on. Or should I say the Four "Wheelering" page as the title says and that Rick's girlfriend Steph calls it.
I have a few more ideas for the use of the technique. Don't you think a family in transparency would be kewl in the background with the picture of a new baby in the foreground done in sepia would be a nice affect?

Hi it's Crafty Tuesday at What's Scrapping and I wanted to post some decorations I created for a friends Party. These canning jars are inexpensive and are the perfect centerpiece for your outdoor gathering. I purchased the jars for only $1.00 at the craft store. The burlap is only 1.99/yard when on sale. I only used 1/4 yard on the jars. I just cut and measured the burlap to fit snuggly around the jar and sewed a quick stitch to create a tube. I simply made the pink roses out of satin material and attached to the burlap with a glue gun. I placed a tiny pearl in the center of each rose. Then I tied each jar with twine. Add water and fresh flowers for the perfect rustic girly centerpiece. I also created a vintage shabby chic banner to match for the honoree. You can view more of my items at www.simplycreatedesigns.etsy.com. Thank you, Denise.
