Cute Easter Tag by Alicia

Hi Alicia here with another project for The Crafty Pickle. This time my focus is Easter. I used a November flair (church) to  make this simple tag. I use some old  pattern paper i have and some Tim holtz distress ink but you can use any kind material you want. For the final touch I used an embellishment (flower)  Here is a photo of my Tag:

One Foxy Lady

Hi Crafty Friends. 

  Today we have an adorable layout from designer, Cathy Martin! She shows how you can take a seasonal flair piece and make it work for everyday embellishing. Take a look!

It’s time for my first layout for the new year for The Crafty Pickle!  Taniesa has been working overtime getting lots of new fun flairs and other items ready for her shop.  I am loving the sequins that she’s offering now!  Be sure to pop on over to her Etsy shop and take a look!

For my layout today I used two flair badges from her Autumn collection.  I love the versatility of these badges, and how cute is that fox!


And here is my layout!  I was inspired from a layout by Martha Bonneau at Cocoa Daisy



Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a crafty day!
Adorable! Love all of the detail. Thank you so much for sharing, Cathy!

Dress up your packages with die cut accents!

Hi Die-Namite fans!

Bringing you an idea today to step up your gift giving with one of my favorite Die-Namites die cut shapes, the Grassy Cattails.

I Love using solid color wrapping paper or in this case plain kraft mailing paper. This allows for the decorative card or tag to really shine. I decided to tie up my package with pretty pink ribbons and a tag created using the Grassy Cattails Die-namites Die.

I cut two of the shape out of kraft cardstock and then colored in with copic markers. I added a bit of glitter pen accent. I wanted the backing of the die cuts to be slightly transparent so I took white vellum and my copic markers, I colored a section of the velum with the green copic in two different shades for both.

I then attached the die cut shape on top of the velum using just a little bit of liquid adhesive. I cut around the shape which went really quick. I glued the die cuts and the flowers down with some glue dots and tied it up with some velvet ribbon to the package.

Wouldn’t you love to receive a gift like this? It’s such a simple yet stunning way to dress up your gifts. Surprise your next gift recipient with a die-namite wrapped gift!
