25 Days of Christmas Tags!

25 days xmas tags 300x249 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello crafty friends!  I’m SO HAPPY you stopped by my blog today — I have a special post to share with you all!  I was invited by my blog friend, Tracey McNeely, to participate in her 25 Days of Christmas Tags Designer’s Blog Hop!

And I was inspired by today’s ‘Snowman’ challenge at The Card Concept!

24 227x300 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

SO MUCH FUN and INSPIRATION — whooo hoooo!

papersweeties debbie 11 26 141 216x300 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

I LOVE creating goodies for the holidays — Christmas is my favorite time of the year!  I especially love to create gifts for people … I adore giving handmade from the heart gifts to family and friends!

papersweeties debbie 11 26 143 300x225 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

I created a set of four tags for this event.  First off, I’m sharing this sweet little snow fella created using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:  Holly Days, Holly Days Sweet Cuts, Wagon Add-on: Snowballs, Strawberry Baker’s Twine, Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts, Robin Egg Sequins, Robin Egg Seam Binding and Frosting Seam Binding.

I attached my tag to a handmade box – embellished and decorated to coordinate with the tag!

papersweeties debbie 11 26 144 300x225 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Aqua, red and white is one of my favorite color palettes to create with — next to aqua, pink and white & hot pink/lime green!

papersweeties debbie 11 26 145 300x259 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

The next little tag I designed is a bit more shabby — lots of fun embellishments come together to create this little sweetie!  I used these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:  Friendship Warms The Heart, Red & White Chenille Candy Canes, Strawberry Baker’s Twine, Licorice Seam Binding.

papersweeties debbie 11 26 146 300x225 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Who wouldn’t want to receive a yummy package of chocolate candy stir sticks with a pretty little tag for the holidays?  Perfect hostess gift when visiting friends!

papersweeties debbie 11 26 148 300x225 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

This next tag will be attached to this fun hot chocolate, peppermint candy and marshmallow gift – YUM!  I used these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:  Joy Sweet Cuts, Green Apple Seam Binding.

papersweeties debbie 11 26 147 273x300 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

And, I saved my favorite for last — isn’t he the sweetest snowman you’ve ever seen?  I used these goodies to create this fun tag:  Snow Friends, Snow Friends Sweet Cuts, Strawberry Baker’s Twine, Strawberry Seam Binding.   The grungy tags are from the Kraft Outlet and the patterned papers are from October Afternoon – Making Merry.

Today, I am spotlighting a FUN way to use Kraft Cardstock to whip up some delicious holiday projects!

Debbie TKJ 11 21 142 300x225 The SWEETEST Season   TKJ spotlight!

I created a bright and cheery holiday card using Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and some Dark Green Baker’s Twine from the Kraft Outlet shop!  The images are stamped and die cut using the Homemade With Love and Homemade With Love Sweet Cuts sets, and the ‘holly berries’ are Strawberry Sequins – from the Paper Sweeties boutique!

Show us your dream space!

Hi crafty friends!  I’m popping in on the Paper Sweeties blog today to share a couple pics of my creative space with ya’ll!

DSC03646 300x225 Show us your dream space!

I was contacted by WeWork to write a blog post about my creative space and share a few photos!  My craft room is my FAVORITE room in my home — and it’s ‘so me’!  If you’re interested in finding out more about WeWork, check out their many locations to see if there is a space near you!

DSCN14861 300x225 Show us your dream space!

This is my work station where I design and illustrate all of my Paper Sweeties images before they are produced as acrylic stamps!

DSC03648 300x225 Show us your dream space!

The paint color on the walls is Behr Paris White from Home Depot.

DSC03649 300x225 Show us your dream space!

I live in a Victorian style home and I love anything old, antique and shabby!  I have a lot of this type of furniture in my craft room to house all of my supplies and tools!  An antique oak dresser holds lots of supplies!  This was first used in 1990 as a dresser in my first son’s nursery!

DSC03645 300x225 Show us your dream space!

I purchased a table constructed from shutters for my room — it works as a perfect station to house my hot glue gun … an essential tool for all of my crafty projects!

DSC03651 300x225 Show us your dream space!

I store all my dies and cutting machine below this desk in an old picnic basket that I spray painted white!

DSC03652 300x225 Show us your dream space!

My craft space doubles as a guest bedroom when we have company, so I have a pretty white iron day bed that I use to sit on when creating.

DSC03653 300x225 Show us your dream space!

My craft table is an antique 1940′s enamel top kitchen table with pull out sides!

DSC03654 300x225 Show us your dream space!

When I have friends over to craft together, I pull out the sides … when it’s just me, I leave the sides retracted so the table top is smaller.

 

DSC03660 300x225 Show us your dream space!

I white-washed an old pine pie safe — it holds lots of bits and bobs of supplies and tools!

DSC03655 300x225 Show us your dream space!

DSC03656 300x225 Show us your dream space!

DSC02316 225x300 Show us your dream space!

DSC03657 300x225 Show us your dream space!

These shelves are old and handmade by my grandfather!  They held toys in my sons’ playroom for years, but now they are painted Apple Green and hold all my treasured crafty supplies!

DSC02315 300x225 Show us your dream space!

White wicker baskets and enamel pails & buckets hold bits and bobs of embellishments!
