Using Your Stash for Christmas Tags and Packaging




As soon as December rolls around I break out my craft stash and use it on my Christmas tags and packages.

I had so much Heidi Swapp supplies leftover from last year! I decided to make new Christmas tags using the epoxy words from the Believe collection.  I also used Jillibean Soup's wood grain mini bags!








Break out those dies too! They are great for making your own Christmas packaging!


I used the Rectangle Box die to make my gift box. 





You can find this die in the We R Memory Keepers store. 
Be sure to use the code "Cokie" to save 20% off your order.









I hope you enjoyed my fun Christmas packaging project today!

Pocket Pages of Fun!


I really love this pocket page type of scrapbooking. The concept is such a time saver for my hectic schedule too!

There are so many companies out there with some really pretty kits. One of my new faves is the Teresa Collins Studio Gold Album Made Easy kit. The color combo is fabulous.



I added some fun embellishments to my pages that I've had in my stash. Mini clips, canvas pieces, and mini kraft bags are some of my favorite additions to my pages.

You can find the Albums Made Easy products in the We R Memory Keepers store. Be sure to use the code "COKIE" to save 20% off of your order.



I also bought this Teresa Collins album. I love the gold polka dots and the 8'1/2" x 11" size.


Have you tried this type of scrapbooking yet? I think you will really love it! I'm so hooked!

I'll be back soon to share some new Project Life Pages! Have a great weekend!

Gift Bags, Trinkets, and Giveaway Winner



I'm popping in today to share a new project and to announce the Michael's gift card winner. Be sure to keep reading to see who won!

I recently hung out with my Houston Insta-Sistas for a day of fun. Sweet Nancy Wyatt invited me to join this group!

We are a group of locals who are addicted to Instagram! We also network, share ideas, and have developed a sisterhood of friendship. These are the gifts that I gave to each lady in the group during our luncheon last month.

I whipped up these fun little bags using supplies from SRM Stickers



The pink doilies are from my stash. I also added a flower to the front of each bag.

I also gave them these cute little ceramic jewelry boxes. Each one had a fun design on it. 



And now for the giveaway winner! Congrats to JP Scraps!

Halloween and the Project Life App - Day 5



Welcome to Day #5 of the "7 Days of Halloween Inspiration Event" brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". 





We’re just a group of online blog friends who love being creative! Keep reading to see all of the participating blogs and prizes that are being offered!

This time around I'm showing you a project that I whipped up in 10 minutes using the new Project Life App from Becky Higgins.

This app can be purchased and downloaded from the App Store for $2.99. I am an app fanatic and love this easy concept for scrapbooking. 




What I like about the app:

    • It's quick and easy to use.
    • There are many styles of Project Life cards to choose from.
    • There are a variety of page layouts, templates, and themes.
    • I can scrapbook on-the-go.


Some of you may ask this question?What do I do with page once it's created on my phone?

Answer - There are great printing options using this App. 

Some of my Instagram friends have printed their pages out using Persnickety Prints and Costco. I will be giving both options a try to see which would be better for me. The prints at Persnickety are only $1.99. That's a great price for my budget. And they fit perfectly in photo sleeves. 

Here are some pages that were printed using Persnickety Prints. It looks fabulous and can be added to your Project Life albums.
