‘Tis the Season Gift Tags

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Gift Tags are the one things I always seem to forget to either buy or make and have a last minute dash in the last few days of gift wrapping. I know we are only a third of the way thru October but I decided I might as well start early and tuck them away for a few weeks. (Keeping fingers crossed that I will remember where I put them!)

These are two very simple designs using the pretty and versitile ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper along with the perfectly aptly named Tag Buffet Stamp Set.

Welcome to the Team – Thoughtful Blooms Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I had one of my lovely customers decide to join my team as a hobby demo – so she could take advantage of the discount when buying her goodies – I wanted to give her a personal thank you for making that decision and gave her a package of goodies along with a hand-made card!

Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to join Stampin’ UP! as a demonstrator, there are extra goodies offered as well as the usual great deal of choosing $125 worth of any goodies in the the catalogs for just $99.  When I joined around 9 1/2 years ago it was one of the best decisions I have ever  made (after marrying my husband, of course 🙂 )  If you scroll down the post a little further there is a link that will take you straight to more details.
