Handmade Holidays Box Decor Project Using MDS

In my upcoming Handmade Holidays class, we will be making this MDS-hybrid decor box project!

I created these two pages from scratch in My Digital Studio. I knew what size I wanted my circles to be for the project and designed it around that. The JOY letters are punches and the LOVE letters are a stamp brush. I added a drop shadow effect to the letters for both pages.

Here’s how my final project looks, after punching the letters out with my 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, stamping on the Tiny Treat Boxes with White Craft ink. I used the heart from the Work of Art stamp set and the snowflake from the Cheerful Tags photopolymer stamp set. For a finishing touch I added Rhinestone Jewels (colored with permanent markers) to the end boxes. I used the same 5 boxes for both sets of letters, just stamped and put the letters on opposite sides!

24 Quick & Easy Cheerful Tags!

24 quick and easy Christmas gift tags! Visit www.mirrorimagecrafts.com for more projects!

I made these 24 Christmas gift tags in less than an hour. I used the Note Tag Punch, Trim the Tree designer paper stack, and the Cheerful Tags photopolymer stamp set. We’ll make tags during my Handmade Holidays class too, so plan to attend on November 14th! The tags we will make for class will be slightly different (bigger) and we will make about 8-10 of them rather than 24 – because we have FOUR other projects to make that night!

My First Day – MDS printable from Stampin’ Up!

My baby started Kindergarten!

One week ago, my son Liam started kindergarten! Of course I took a ton of pictures, including some with this sign! I used the My First Day printable from Stampin’ Up! (MDS download) just like last year. I just changed the school, the grade, and his teacher’s name. I printed this one at home, so the sign colors aren’t as good as if I had them printed online. I didn’t find out his teacher’s name in time to send this off for printing!
