Sweet Treat!

Hey Crafty Friends!
Designer, Cathy, is up with an adorable holiday layout! Check it out
Hey everyone it’s Cathy here with another post for The Crafty Pickle. I wanted to use some of the wonderful December/Christmas flair badges and sequins and I thought what better way to use the lovely candy striped badges then to showcase them on a layout about my daughter getting candy canes stuck in her hair. I apologize that the photos aren’t at their normal quality, I ended up having to take them with my phone instead of my usual Canon camera.
I adore how she used the flair and sequins, all the clusters and layering are perfect.
Thanks Cathy!
I hope you all have a very Merry week!!!

Do you want to build a Snowman….. with Cathy?

Hi Crafty Friends, 

  Designer, Cathy, is back today sharing a fab snowman layout! Take a look!

If there’s one thing my kids love, it’s building snowmen, and getting to build one in November calls for a layout.  For this layout I thought what better products to use then Crafty Pickle flair and sequins.  I used the Winter Mix sequins as well as two flair badges from the January flair set.  The royal blues were a perfect compliment to my photos and I love the pop of pink and red.  For my layout I dug deep, and I mean DEEP into my stash, there are items on this layout that I bought back around 2009-2010 that I had all about given up on ever using!  There are quite a few items that I would have purged if I had actually ever gotten around to purging, but getting to use up very old stash items just makes me feel accomplished!

 

 

I love how colorful this is and the layering is just beautiful. Great job Cathy!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ornaments with Flair!

 Two posts in one day? Yep! I couldn’t wait to share designer, Carrie’s, Ornaments she created with some TCP Custom glitter flair. Take a look!!
Today I wanted to share with you a project I created for my Bunco Group. 
I started with some unfinished laser cut star ornaments. Next I sprayed them with my Tinsel Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  This gave them a pretty silver metal finish. I then attached my custom flair from TheCraftyPickle and finished them off with some beautiful red ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by today.  If you would like to order some custom flairs it’s super easy, contact Taniesa from TheCraftyPickle and she will make you something beautiful.
Happy Scrappin’

I am sure they are going to be a big hit, Carrie. Thanks so much for sharing them with us!!

December Daily update with Treasa!

Hi Crafty Friends!
  Treasa has been working on her December Daily and it is ADORABLE! Check out her progress!
Hi there, today I wanted to share a few cards I made for my December  Daily. First up I wanted to share how I was documenting my days of the month in my album.
As soon as I seen these flair in The Crafty Pickle shop I  knew I had to use them in my album. I love the silver glitter and the fun font. These Elegant December flair add the perfect touch to my pages even with some sparkle.

 

I also made some cards to add in my album using more of the fabulous flair found in The Crafty Pickle. First up is the card I made to document the return of our Elf on the Shelf Elvis Parsley.  The Personalized Elf flairs are perfect and I love how you can get them personalized with your elf’s name.
Up next is a card that was inspired by my album that I am suing for my December Daily. I totally fell in love with the burlap and rustic look of it. So I decided to make a card using burlap and one of the flair badges from the December button flair set.
And lastly, I had to make a card to document my love of Starbucks red cups. These red cup flair buttons was a special request and I think they turned out fabulous.
I have to say that I am loving all the flair buttons that I have received from The Crafty Pickle  and  how I can personalize my album and cards. It makes this album so much more special. Please visit The Crafty Pickle and remember that Taniesa takes special orders, so if you don’t see it in the store, send her a message.
Don’t forget to stop by The Crafty Pickle for me fabulous and creative ideas.

Elf on the Shelf

Hi Crafty Friends!
 Do you take part in the Elf on the Shelf tradition each year? Designer, Kristin, has a great idea for a Elf on the Shelf Album that is totally adorable. Check it out!
***************************************************************************************************
I am doing some prep work for my “Elf on a Shelf” album for my little one this year!!!
We just bought him so this is going to be fun this year with this cute little elf …who knows what he is going to get into!!
I used an album that had red in it for the cute Elf and I used on this wooden piece Ranger silver super fine embossing powder ,next I added cork to the circle and with Black Stazon I used the star in the Artiste stamp set in the background. Next, I made a snowflake with the Pathfinder paper from Close to my Heart, backed the “Elf on the Shelf” flair with red cardstock that you can get in the store.
I started to make some fun cards to put in the “Elf” book and made this cute tree with the camera, red and elf on the shelf flair from the store. I also used Cricut Artbooking Collection stamps,some more of the Pathfinder Collection, the Christmas sequins, and then clear sequins that comes in the packaging!!! Here is a link to her CTMH Store

 

All these fun products were so fun to play with!!!

Thanks, Kristin. I LOVE your album. This is a great idea to do in conjunction with or instead of December Daily. I can’t wait to see the finished album!

Happy Crafting!

Gift a candy bar!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Is your gift list a mile long? It’s always hard for me to come up with a clever gift that doesn’t cost a lot of money. Designer, Joann, has came up with a beautiful way to gift a simple candy bar! Check it out!!

Hi! Today I have fun little project to share with you today and my first ever step by step tutorial (so this is a warning that it is a LONG post, lol)!

I wanted to create some fun treat holders to give to a few friends and family some in which I could fit a snicker bar. I searched for a few ideas and came across many (pinterest of course, lol) and most of them used the envelope punch board, but I wanted to be able to make one without the punch board.

Here is what I came up with…

 

I started off with cutting some 12 x 12 Cranberry card stock from CTMH at 9 1/4 x 5 (you can get 2 treat holders out of a 12 x 12). I then placed my card stock long ways on my scoreboard (9 1/4) and scored it at 1 1/8, 2 1/8, 7, 8. I then took my card stock and rotated it (5) and scored at 3/4, 1 7/8, 3 1/8, 4 1/8.  It will look like this…
Taking my scissors I started to cut (black lines indicate where you need to cut and the “x” indicates the areas that will be removed).

You will then be left with this (I marked the 4 areas with stars for the next step below)…

 

The 4 squares with the stars (shown above) will need a small diagonal cut off of 2 sides (picture on the left). After all four squares have been cut, your treat holder should look like the picture on the right. This will help with the closure of the box.

I used my grid mat to place small dots on the top and bottom squares of my treat box (picture on the right). I took my scissors and meet the side dots to the top. You should end up with the picture on the left.
I took CTMH stamp set Snowflakes to stamp a few images for my box and turned the box on its back and placed some strong adhesive on the 3/4 side (one of the sides is slightly smaller than the other, I did it this way so when the box is closed, the closing on the back is down the middle and not to one side).
I found the easiest way to line everything up was to fold the box and carefully push down so both sides stick to the adhesive and then I opened it to run my finger inside, making sure it was secured.
I cut an image from the CTMH Artiste that coordinates with the Holiday Tags CTMH stamp set and stamped it with some Cranberry Ink and placed a TCP Flair in the center (the glitter on this flair is stunning). Punched a hole on top and ran both ends through it so I could tie a nice bow on top of the tag.
I know this was a lengthy post but once you get one done, I promise the others will be super fast. I appreciate you making it to the end and I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial.
Just a heads up…
