It’s back to the daily grind my friends! I took a couple of weeks off over Christmas and although it was busy, as Christmas always is, it was also relaxing and fun. I’m sad it’s over but excited to get into the new year and new classes – there are some awesome ones lined up at The Paperie!

To start things off with a bang, here are some of the last projects I made with the January Card Kit – I was so productive that I couldn’t get everything made in time for my deadline! To see everything else I made, you can check out this post or pop into the Paperie for the real items. Like what you see? You can call them to get one held for you and then you can show me how you worked with it!

First, a small lunchbox note:

the best

I heat embossed the flower from the included stamp set using Stampendous Aged Silver Embossing Enamel – I love the black bits!

Next up, a small tag to hang on a birthday gift. I used a Darcie’s Stamp Set I gave Gabe for Christmas and paper pieced a fun knight (sorry for the wonky exclamation mark and blurry photo, getting decent light here lately has been a challenge!):


To add a bit of shine, I coloured parts of the suit with my Uniball Silver Gel Penย (The Paperie also carries Gold!):

Finally, another stamp Gabe got for Christmas, the Toby stamp from Prima by Julie Nutting:

happy day

This is a full length tag made from paper in the kit. We usually use these instead of cards on birthday gifts and tell the recipient to use it as a bookmark!

And that’s it – I pretty much only have scraps left! That’s what I love best about Card Kits; they’re smaller than regular page kits so you can bring one to a crop, make a bunch of stuff, and be done with it – hardly any leftovers to worry about!

I’ll be back here again tomorrow with some new Simple Scrapper LO’s and news so make sure you stop back.
