Solange's "December Dreams" Happy Mail Tag Flips

Hello crafty friends! Today I am showing you guys a happy mail project using the “December Dreams Kit”.

Tag flips are one of my favorite ways to send happy mail because it’s easy, fun and super cute! All you’ll need to make your own is a metal ring and your “December Dreams” kit, that’s it !

If you do not have any metal rings on hand you can just tie the tags with some pretty trim which will work just as well.

To make this tag flip I used the dashboards that come in the kit and fussy cut some of my favorite images such as the ballerina, the house and the pretty blue Christmas tree. For the pieces that I fussy cut, I simply punched a whole and added it to my tag flip, simple and super cute.

Then I added some extra pieces that I cut into tag shapes and decorated them up using the beautiful ephemera pieces.

Super easy and cute project, can’t wait to see what you guys will make with your kit. Until next time, Solange.

Kat's Halloween Flipbook

Hello Spooky Friends!

It’s Kat, and I am bringing you my second project as guest designer for the month of October. My focus has been creating projects that I will cherish for years to come. For my second project I have created a flipbook of sorts that I will be filling up with Halloween memories.

For the cover I choose this super spooky cute journaling card and layered it with some fun ephemera from the “Magical and Mischievous” collection. I used a flare button as a clasp to keep my flipbook closed with some twine.

Sometimes when we memory-keep, we can quickly run out of space to store all our treasures. I decided to make a smaller scaled project that would be easy to store. I trimmed my base to 5x5 squares for a total of 5 squares and adhered them together using 1x5 inch slips of paper. I then choose some of my favorite prints and trimmed them to 4 ½ inch squares and adhered them to my base for a total of 9.

After adhering all the Spooktacular papers I chose ephemera that would compliment each square. Layering and creating clusters allow each little square to come to life.

For most of the squares I left large areas to go back and add my pictures from Halloween day. I made sure to only adhere the edges of the ephemera to allow me to slip the pictures in and drape the ephemera over the pictures. Some squares I made into decorative pieces to tell the story of my album flipbook.

For the ephemera I mostly used the colorful and gorgeous images from the “Magical and Mischievous” collection but I also I sprinkled some of the fun foiled phrases. I just love how the “Happy Halloween” phrase is the perfect size for this flipbook.

When the flipbook is completely opened it just shows how super cute and fun it is! I can’t wait to fill it up with some cute memories from my Halloween. I hope you also create your very own “Magical and Mischievous” Halloween album flipbook. The perfect way to display all your favorite memories. Stay Spooky cuties!
