Live Inspired


The gift giving season is upon us and I’m here today to share a few ideas to help you dress up those packages. I’m obsessed with gold…. I really thought this phase would pass and I’d already be onto something else but I think it’s here to stay a bit. 


Let’s start with my favorite package



Supplies used: white wrapping paper, gold dot tissue paper, gold thread , mini bottle brush tree, wood cut greetings and a banner. (I cut mine from the silhouette) Other than the Silhouette , I found all supplies at my local Target. 



This little package is simple and a little more sophisticated. Gold stripes will do that:) I am quickly becoming obsessed with these itty bitty boxwood wreaths. (I’ll be sharing a quick video how-to on those later this week. They are the perfect addition to these little presents and the “real” texture is such an fun little surprise! Supplies: Gold striped wrapping paper | metallic embroidery thread | American Crafts date stamp for the happy holiday greeting | Fresh Boxwood sprigs for mini wreaths 



Grab a greeting stamp and some gold ink and stamp your own wrapping paper. Top it off with some ribbon and a mini ornament. Simple and quick! Supplies used: white wrapping paper | Encore metallic stamp pad in gold | gold ornaments from target | stamps from inspirationave 



I’m always on the look out for little elements to add to my stash and when I saw these little wooden snowflakes I knew they’d be perfect. Layered on some gold confetti and tied with some ribbon. 


Supplies used: gold polka dot paper unknown | wooden snowflake – target | Gold shred | Gold ribbon from Joanns 



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you leave with a few ideas for your holiday gift wrapping. Hugs to you all. Amy

Tags & Such

Hello All. It’s been a busy couple weeks as I have been away working in China. So happy be home and back to my crafty self and bringing you a few tag ideas today using one of my favorite kits from Gossamer blue.  Something about the feminine bright colors, golds and pineapples just made this so easy to work with. Pink Paislee, Elizabeth Kartchner have outdone themselves on these products. When I don’t have to work hard to make something – you know it’s good stuff:) I love the simplicity of just cutting a tag from patterned paper, layering the elements and bringing it all together with a little clip. Easy peasy! Add these to a gift bag, throw them in a jar and give a little gift!

 

 

Stop by Gossamer blue and say Hi to the new Design team and check out more of my work in the gallery. Such a talented group of women and exciting things to come.

Hope your day is lovely! Live Inspired. XoXo, Amy 

Giveaway winner & weekend inspiration

 

Happy Friday! It’s going to be a nice long weekend and I wanted to share with you all a little stamping inspiration before I check out for a couple days. I think the reason I love stamps so much is all the possibilities one little set can have. I hope you enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for all who stopped by and said Hi! It means a lot! I’m excited to announce the winner! I will email you for your address and the package will be sent out to you this weekend! Congrats!! And if you didn’t win, no worries I will be offering more giveaways.

 

I hope your memorial weekend is a nice one.

XoXo, Amy
