Pint Jar Gift Wrap Holder

Hi! Today I am sharing a holder for a pint jar of body scrub I will be giving to a friend. I love how this turned out! I used Jam Jar and Candle Gift Wrap- Pint Jar and Little Girl Digi Stamps for my project.

I used "Cartulina Pink" by Recollections for the base of my gift wrap holder and prints from "Uptown Flair" from The Paper Studio for the mats, bow and flower.    There is a great pictorial tutorial on the MSC website on how to put together this  pint jar gift holder.   


I used Design Space to add the little spa girl  from Little Girl Digi Stamps and the sentiment (from Digital Delights by Louby Loo) to the tag that is included with the pint jar holder. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.

I love these jam jar/candle gift wrap holders! They are so versatile and can be used for so many things! They are also super easy to make! 

Relax and enjoy your day!

Reindeer Ride Saffi Shaker Card

Today I am sharing a shaker card made with Reindeer Ride Saffi from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.


DD Stamps Used: Reindeer Ride Saffi, Days of Christmas Set (retired)

Papers & Cardstock: Glitter and aqua cardstock by Recollections, glossy purple cardstock by Colorbok

Markers used: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, sky - Prismacolor pencils

Acc./Embellishments: Snowflakes, various seed beads, foam tape

Special Technique: The base of my card was made with a file from Bird's Cards. The opening was originally an oval but I used Design Space to stretch it into a circle. I then made a base layer by slicing a circle into the coordinating spot. The card was sliced again so it is 5 bt 6 inches. I used a Fuse tool and various seed beads to make the shaker element.After the layers were assembled,  I added two plastic snowflakes that I had in my stash. Saffi was added with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by.

I used Files from My Scrap Chick.
For the Kitty Belly Box I used Black Cat Belly Box Trio

This belly box is seven inches tall. I made the pumpkin pieces from glitter cardstock and attached the pieces with foam tape to add more dimension. I used one inch googly eyes on my kitty. 

For the owl, I used Owl Gradution Trio and Witch Hat Halloween Treat Box for the hat.

I'm sure my granddaughters will love these belly boxes. They are so easy and fun to make. Thanks for stopping by!

Well, it's October, so it must be time to start those Halloween projects! 

Today I made a Halloween easel card using Haunted House Easel Card and Haunted House & Guests from My Scrap Chick.

I made the card the size that it uploaded into Design Space. I used "Spooky Delights" by DCWV for the house pillars, vellum for the ghosts and windows, and scraps from my stash for the other pieces. 
I printed the sentiment from the included PDF. 

The pillars, upstairs dormer window, gravestones and ghost were all attached with foam tape. I added gems on the dormer and door.

I hope you like my little easel card. I'd love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment. 
Have a boo-tiful day!

Teddy Zipperz Rocker Card

Hi! Today I am on the Digital Delights by Louby Loo blog sharing how I made this cute little Halloween rocker card.


All DD files used:Teddy ZipperzGhoulish Sentiment Set, and Rocker Card SVG cut file.

Ghoulish sentiments set 
  Rocker Card SVG Cut file  Teddy Zipperz
Papers & Cardstock: "Spooky Delight Stack" by DCWV, "Glitter Paper" by COLORBOK

Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils

Acc./Embellishments: 4 small black rhinestones, foam tape, glue runner , glue


     I made my rocker card over-sized with the base 7 inches in diameter. I made the wavy trim slightly smaller. I folded the card base and wavy circle in half, centered the wavy piece over the base and glued them together.

The circle mat and decorative mat were enlarged to 5 inches. (I used a Halloween mat, but the included mat will work just as well.)
The white decorative circle was glued on top of the black circle. Since it's hard to glue together glitter cardstock, I used glue runner and lots of glue, then paper clipped the layers together until they dried.

Once dry, I centered this piece over the curved area of the base, centering it from behind, as shown.

The image is 3 1/2 inches tall and was colored with Prismacolor markers. The image was attached with foam tape. The color palette can be found here.

Prismacolor Pencil Palette

Bear: 937 Tuscan Red, 1031 Henna, 943 Burnt Ochre, 1034 Goldenrod
Patch: 946 dark Brown, 1082 Chocolate
Inner Ear: 929 Pink, 994 Process Red
Mouth/ Stomach: 1067 Cool Grey 90%,  1063 50%, 1060 20%
Cloak: 1030 Raspberry, 925 Crimson Lake, 924 Crimson Red, 1078 Black Cherry
Accents with a gold gel pen and yellow Wink of Stella

The sentiment is 1 by 2 3/8 inches and is double matted with orange and black glitter paper, and is attached with foam tape to the bottom of the card base.

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial. Happy crafting!
