Christmas Gift Tags!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I would like to share some fun gift tags I made using the super fun Bella Blvd Santa Stops Here collection! I started by die cutting some tags from the solid papers in the Santa Stops Here 6x8 mini paper pad. I then had tons of fun using a couple tubes of the Illustrated Faith Acrylic paints. I seriously almost bought this paint set months ago when it was first released. I hesitated only because I don't really use a lot of paints in my papercrafting and wasn't sure if I would be able to use them. Boy, was I wrong! These paints are super easy to work with and the colors are gorgeous too!

I started the tags by using the enclosed paint spreading tool (like a credit card) to push the teal and pink paints around the backgrounds of my tags. When the paint was dry, I simply embellished the tags with my favorite pieces from the Bella Blvd Santa Stops Here collection. I used the Ephemera Pieces as my main focus. I then used the Bella Blvd Puffy Heart Stickers and the Bella Blvd Puffy Star Stickers to finish off my tags. So easy!
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to create your own crafty Christmas tags! And be sure to check out the Bella Blvd Santa Stops Here collection for all of your Christmas crafting!

Gift Boxes for St. Nick Day!

Good morning everyone! Today I am sharing my first creation as a member of the 2018 Bella Blvd Creative Team. I am so excited! I love working with Bella Blvd products and the Santa Stops Here collection is no exception! I created these little gift boxes in no time using the Holly Pillow Box cut file I found in the Silhouette online store.  

I used the adorable blue snowflake patterned paper for the base of my first pillow box. I then added a strip of fun candy cane striped paper around the box. I easily finished the box using a pink Bella Blvd Cute Clip bow, an adorable elf ephemera piece, and a cute Santa Epoxy Sticker. 
I die cut the second box out of the coordinating candy cane patterned paper. I used another strip from the Santa Stops Here Borders paper to wrap around the middle of the box. Again, I easily finished the box off with another Bella Blvd Cute Clip bow, ephemera piece, and cute matching epoxy sticker. Who wouldn't love to receive these little boxes?!?!

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to craft a goody box or two for a loved one!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
