Saturdays With LeAnn

Hello all my beautiful friends, and welcome back to Stamp & Scrapbook Expo’s blog.  Memories are the most precious gift.  Reminiscing and cherishing each moment of your holiday season will always hold a special place in your heart.  Whether memories are preserved through a card, a scrapbook page, or some type of craft, they will be treasured forever.  I hope the wonderful projects I have to share today will be inspiring to you.  Grab a hot drink, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Poinsettia Tag By Karan Gerber

It’s time to start thinking about those small finishing touches that make gift giving so special!  These beautiful tags are great to dress up any of your holiday packages, gift baskets, or even make as a party favor.  This gorgeous tag will also make your packages look so beautiful underneath your Christmas tree.  I absolutely love to create and love to share my creations, and this is such a great way of doing just that.  Who wouldn’t love to receive this on their gift?

If you love poinsettias then you will love creating these beautiful tags.  Karan has done an amazing job creating her tags and I love sharing her talent with you.  Click here and you can see all the materials you will need and how Karan created these amazing tags.  You still have plenty of time to be creative and have these ready to put on your packages to put underneath the Christmas tree.

Blessed Christmas By Yoonsun Hur

Are you beginning to feel that Christmas magic in the air?  The time is here to start gathering your ideas for that perfect Christmas card.  Now is a great time to get started.  Everyone loves a beautiful handmade card, and they are such a pleasure to make and a joy to receive.  I fell in love with the simplicity of this card.  Yoonsun kept the card simple and let the image of the deer take center stage.

This darling card was created by the very talented Yoonsun Hur.  If you need a burst of creative inspiration to get you started, I suggest visiting her blog Rejoicing Crafts.  You will be so uplifted by her talent.   This is one of those cards that you must give it a try, I know you will love the end result.

Count Down To The Big Day By Karolyn Loncon

It is always so much fun to count down the 25 days until Christmas.  What a creative way to do so with this wooden frame and darling tag calendar.  Each little tag can have a surprise note of a fun activity, a special treat, or even a small toy for the person who gets to read the tag.  This calendar will also keep mom and dad on their toes to get all their shopping, baking, wrapping, etc. done in time for the holiday.

Pull out some of your paper scraps and get started.  What a fun tradition to have with your family, whether it be for your children, grandchildren, or just for you!  Click here and you can follow along with Karolyn’s video on how she created her countdown calendar from start to finish.  She will also give you different ideas to display them.  You can download two PDF’s for your convenience in recreating these tags as well.  Who wouldn’t have fun counting the days down with this fun Advent Calendar?  You still have time to be creative and get yours ready for a special holiday season.

White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Bites are easy and delicious.  No baking required and perfect for the holidays!  A fun family treat or to share with friends.  These are seriously the easiest homemade gift ideas for easy holiday giving.  This is one of those recipes that looks so fancy and impressive!

Package them up in a cute candy box, add some cute ribbon and a fun crafty tag, and you are good to go.  Your family and friends will love you for it!  Let me escort you on over to Today’s Creative Life to look at this easy recipe so you can get started.  Don’t plan on these sitting around for too long; you may want to make a double batch!

I hope today has brought you some inspiration from these talented women.  My hope is that you will take time this holiday season to relax and enjoy your family and friends.  Have a wonderful week and may the Christmas spirit touch each of your hearts!

Many hugs sent your way,
