From Leftovers to Tag

I am sharing a tag made with an Inspired Stamps His Little Ones and Hymn Line Wings stamp today but you might be surprised to learn that every piece came from my "leftover jar". 

The moment you start crafting, you will find you have bits and pieces left over. Then you feel guilt about wasting $ if you throw them away. To solve the dilemma, I keep a jar on my desk that I throw the bits in to.  I let it fill up and when it won't hold another thing, I dump it out and start making tags, cards, etc.

The stamped image was one I deemed "unworthy" for a card because I didn't like how her face turned out after adding too many freckles. But she's perfect for a gift tag that will be barely glanced at as the recipient rips it off with the wrapping paper! The Hymn wings were just extras from a day of card making. The tag, trim and tinsel were also in the leftover jar. I wanted to stamp a word on the bottom of the tag but was limiting myself to a strictly "leftover" project.  The recipient's name could be written at  the bottom as well.

Please look at the rest of the Design Team's creations at the Inspired Stamps Blog!
  Have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Gift w/Inspired Stamps

This is a gift I enjoy making and  giving because it is always used and appreciated by the recipient.  I use a frame from Ikea but Michaels also carries a similar frame now.  The scripture stamps from Inspired Stamps are the perfect stamps to use for this project.  By using both sides, you are able to add several scriptures.

Inspired Stamps Christmas His Little Ones

I blinked and it's December! How about you? Thanksgiving was a lovely time but now I'm ready to enjoy the few fleeting days of Christmas festivities.  Today I am sharing one of the sweet His Little Ones stamp from Inspired Stamps.  This is the outside of the card and I have used a sentiment stamp from another favorite Christmas stamp set, Nativity Set

The inside of the card uses a scripture from the beautiful Poinsettia Stamp Set. I hope you enjoy this Holy season! Next week I will share an inspirational gift you can make that will encourage someone throughout the year.
