Simply Adorned Necklace

I’m back with another gift idea, the second in my 12 gifts of Christmas series. This is one of our wonderful Simply Adorned charms. These are just beautiful in person. The quality is very nice. It is a little bit of a change to stamp small, but a lot of fun once you get the hang of it! This charm is 1″ by 1 1/4″. I decorated it for the holiday season, but the sky is the limit with these. You can add photos, go artistic, funky or fun.

If you are going to give these as a gift you could stamp an insert for each month of the year and give that along with the charm. If you order the Simply Adorned bundle, these are the two pieces you will get. We have bracelets and smaller ones suitable for charms in our Simply Adorned line. You could also make lovely ornaments or key chains with these.

Tip: You can see that the holly berries are 3 dimensional. I used our white shimmer paint mixed with ink to color our pearls to make the berries.

12 Gifts of Christmas

Tags Til Christmas


Tags til Christmas


Over the next few weeks I’ll be highlighting several gift Ideas that are perfect for holiday giving. I’ll be covering a lot of different gift options and decided to start with one that is quick and easy and inexpensive.


This cute little collection of tags is one of those simple little items that you can tuck in to a festive gift basket as a little extra or is great when you need a bunch of inexpensive gifts. Our PTA used to give a little something to each teacher and support staff each day of the week leading up to the Christmas break and this would be perfect for that. It would also be a great item if you wanted to leave a little something on all of your co-workers desks.


Who can’t use a few extra Christmas tags for those last minute gifts? I literally stamped this in less than 10 minutes. I stamped a bunch of images on Whisper White card stock and punched them out using various punches. This set is wonderful, because each stamp has a coordinating punch.(AND it is on sale this month for 20% off when you buy it with the Decorative Label punch!) It took no time at all. I layered a few on additional punched pieces and added to/from on the back of a few. To finish them off, I tied string on about half of them and put a strip of sticky strip on the back of the rest. The recipient can simply peel off the pink cover and their tag will be self adhesive.


Tip: A needle threader was a huge help in pulling the thread through the tags as well as pulling the ribbon through the small punched holes on the topper. This is the method I used to attach the topper to the cello bag.

Royal Blog Tour

Welcome Lords and Ladies to this stop on the Royal Blog Tour! I hope you enjoy your visit here and choose to come back often.


The set that I will be highlighting for the tour is the very versatile,  Got Treats. The first project I have prepared for you is  a card using the gingerbread man and our yummy Jolly Holiday Designer Series paper. I stamped the little gingerbread men, cut them out and popped them up on some brushed silver card stock cut to look like a cookie sheet.



ETA: I have gotten many wonderful comments on my Cookie Sheet Card! Thank you all so much. I first copied this idea years ago from a 3 dimensional scrapbook sticker I saw. I have also seen many other versions of this idea stamped throughout the years, so I wanted to clarify that it isn’t a new concept and I don’t want to leave the impression that it is an original concept! Really it has been out there for a while! Thanks everyone.
