Holiday Treats

sharing with you today a few treat bags I created for the holidays.

Check them out!

 Playing with the Holiday Treats stamp from the Wintery Puns stamp set,
and using the cutest mini bag die cut, I was able to make a few
mini treat bags that will be great for gift cards, small snacks and hey,
maybe even a sweet treat for Santa's reindeer!  They will be here before you know it!

Check out all the amazing Joy's Life Stamps and purchase yours HERE :)

The entire team has been bringing you amazing Bags & Boxes projects
all week long, so be sure to keep scrolling so you don't miss out!

Stop on by my blog for more info on how I made this treat bag!

Have a great weekend and Happy Scrappin'!

Paper Purse from 12x12 and Embossed Mini Cards

Hello!  I am June Houck and this is my first post as a Joy's Life design team member.
I enjoy making teacher gifts like this paper purse filled with four 3x3 cards.

The paper purse was created with one sheet of Lori Whitlock's Winter Park "Ski Lodge" 12x12 paper.
The red solid on the mini cards is also Lori Whitlock's Winter Park collection.

I stamped my Joy's Life "Wintery Puns" sentiment, then used my snowflake embossing folder on the top and bottom.  Then I brushed the raised snowflakes with my white ink pad for dimension.

To create the paper purse:
Score 1" on two opposite sides of your 12x12 paper.  Fold and adhere.
Score at 3.5" on the two sides that were not folded.  Fold and adhere (they will overlap.)
Fold in half (@ 5") and score 3/4" on either side of the center fold.
Fold these back to create the pleated bottom of the bag (see picture.)
Adhere the two center parts of the bag at the top, creating two pockets.
Punch slits on both sides, and secure ribbon inside the bag with strong adhesive.
(I have a more detailed picture tutorial on my blog.)

Fill pockets, and you are finished!

Thank you for stopping by.  Don't forget to check out all of the Joy's Life stamp sets; I already gave my wish list to Santa :)

This week at Joy's Life we are making Bags and Boxes. 
Since you probably shopped your little heart out on Friday

I have a very easy Disco Santa Gift Bag to share.
The bag was made with the Once Upon A Princess Cartridge. All you need is a square of red paper (mini is from Recollections), a stripe of ruched fabric (I used lace that I sew into the paper before gluing the whole thing in the bag) and Black Ribbon. The buckle is from 7 Gypsies.

new awesome set Oh Christmas Puns.

This is new amazing set!!
In case you haven't seen it!!

This box is found in Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cartridge.

Peppermint Kisses for you!

Hello Everyone Debbie with Bugjuiced here!
I am super excited because this is my first DT post for Joy's Life.
I am beyond thrilled to have been chosen for this team. I love the stamps and the sentiments are so cute and humorous which if you have every been to my blog you know I love humor. Today I made a cute treat box and a bag. I purchased an svg file for the Penguin box and used "Wintery Puns" for my "Warm Decembrrr wishes" sentiment. For the "To & From" I used the stamp set "All Around Sentiments" More details on the project just click above to go to my blog.

This little treat bag is from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge and I used a paper stack from My Minds Eye and it was super cute without adding too much too it. The sentiment set was Joy's new set "Oh Christmas Puns" I thought the sentiment "definitely goodish" was super cute and good on its own! I did stamp the cute little "candy cane image"  at the end of the sentiment and layered the sentiment with some pretty red glitter paper.

Squirrel Thanksgiving Card

Hello, everyone!  I hope you are doing well.  I can't believe Thanksgiving is around the corner.  Can you?

He was the first thing I thought of when I saw this stamp.  It's from Joy's It's All Fall Puns set.  If you don't already have it, you can grab your own set here.

Happy Thanksgiving - Humorous card

Hello crafters.. it's Lori with got2bcrafting!
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only 8 days away??  Crazy, right??
And only 9 more days until Black Friday! Woo Hoo!

Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by the wild turkeys that roam our neighborhood. No, I DO NOT live in a rural area, I live in town, and on a pretty busy street.  There are some open areas nearby, but not that close by that you would expect turkeys to be in your yard! :)
Every time I see these turkeys, I imagine this is how they feel (especially this time of year):

Hee Hee!! Cracks me up! :)

Here is a closer look at the stamp I used:
This stamp is from Joy's Life It's All Fall Puns. There are so many fun stamps on this set, you should go check them out.  
Don't forget, Joy's new Christmas stamp set  "Oh Christmas Puns" is now available as well.
You can find all of Joy's awesome stamps and crafting supplies right here.

You can find more information about my card on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by today. 
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
