I love sending (and receiving snail mail). Do you? I have a big stash of blank cards and envelopes that I like to decorate, doodle on, and stamp for the occasion. I’m sure you find yourself sending birthday wishes, just because notes, or thank you cards often. Why not add a little creative touch to your notes?
SUPPLIES: Colorful envelopes, a pencil, and ink pads in a variety of colors
MAKE: Make perfectly round dots by stamping a clean pencil eraser into the ink of your choice and then firmly pressing onto the envelope liner. Let dry before closing.
Okay, who’s a fan of 90′s rap and hip hop? If you’re raising your hand right now, then these printable Valentine’s Day cards are for you. I’ve been teasing them on Instagram this weekend and am now so excited to let you print them out yourselves!
Put them on your desk next week, give them to a 90′s-lovin’ gal pal, or to your special Valentine.
See one you’d like to give? Feel free to click the link below each picture and print your own. xoxo
Who doesn’t love a good Salt-n-Peppa throwback? You make me wanna shoop…..
Today I have the pleasure of joining in an online baby shower honoring the adorable mom-to-be Melissa of Melissa Creates. If you don’t know Melissa’s work, pop on over to her blog for fun crafts, entertaining tips, and recipes. You’ll be glad you did!
Inspired by this gorgeous invite created for Melissa (above), I decided to make a set of watercolor notecards to have on hand. It’s so nice to have pretty notecards on hand when you want to pop a friend a note or send off a thank you card in the mail. And who knew it was so easy to make your own watercolor palette (see the recipe link below)?
Use watercolors to paint any design your heart desires onto blank notecards.
I mixed things up with some lines of different widths and also with a few phrases like “hello” and “thanks.” Get as creative as you’d like.
I bet you’re well into holiday shopping mode (or maybe panic because you feel behind? Yeah, I’m there too). The truth is that gift cards often make a great gift choice because your recipient will be able to use it to buy something they truly want. People like being gifted gift cards. And yes, they make gift giving a bit easier on you too, which is a nice bonus.
I’ve shared my thoughts with you before on the importance of wrapping a gift card in a thoughtful way and today I’ve teamed up with Target to share more DIY gift card wrapping inspiration for their #GiftCardCheer campaign.
Gift cards make great gifts, we’ve agreed on that (right?). But what makes them even better is when you make the recipient work for it … just little. When I was younger my aunt used to wrap the tiny box in the bigger box, inside of the bigger box. You never knew when the wrapping was going to end. I thought it was so much fun and wanted to make my own version of that.
Meet, the gift card yarn bomb.
First, purchase your Target GiftCard® and a ball of yarn. Secure the gift card by tying the yarn around it and knotting it. Then, you will begin wrapping away.
Tis’ the season to deck the halls, wrap the gifts, and gather for some festive cheer! I have been busy prepping for an upcoming holiday gathering with friends and thought I would take a moment to give you a little peek behind the scenes and tips on how I like to make things as simple as I can when entertaining.
My biggest tip is to do as much party prep ahead of time that you can. Above are some drink tags I designed and printed on Avery Printable Tags. You can design your own (which I love!) or choose from one of dozens of designs.
Then simply tie them to the stem of your glassware and your beverage station will be ready to go when guests arrive.
