Embossed Bag Layout by Cathy H.

Hello from Cathy Harper.  I love creating layouts using SRM Kraft and Glassine bags.  They are perfect for adding journaling or just to add a bunch of fun embellishments, which is what I chose with this layout.

I used a Kraft 4x6 Embossed Chevron Bag and layered it behind my photos.  Then filled it with some fun bits from the paper collection.  The perfect finishing touch to my layout and the embossed bag was some Stone Twine.  I wrapped the twine around the bag a couple of times and tied a double bow. I then added a fun clear sticker from the Fall Sentiment set.  I love how SRM's clear stickers look like printed text on your pages.  Awesome for someone like me who can never stamp a sentiment straight!

There are so many sizes and patterns to choose from with SRM's Kraft and Glassine bags!  You can use them for so many things, the possibilities are endless.  And there are lots of different themes of Sticker Sentiments too.  Be sure to check them out! 

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a scrappy day!

Thanksgiving Table Decor by Shantaie

Ever since the first time I laid eyes on SRM's new clear triangle box, I have imagined a tee pee treat container and Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion for such a project. A beautiful seat place marker or an appetizer placed at each table setting to greet your guests. Holidays offer such wonderful opportunities to create the special touches that your family and friends will remember long after the plates are cleared and the turkey leftovers are gone.

 Punch a small hole at the top of the triangle with a hole punch (cropodile was used here) and thread a few strands of raffia through, tie in a loopy bow. add patterned paper along sides using the box measurements.  Add paper to the front and back if desired, and embellish with stamped leaves, a ribbon and some gold cording. Add a banner with a SRM fall sentiment and fill with treats of your choice.

Soccer Team Treats by Lorena

Hi SRM crafty friends! It's Lorena with an idea to make quick treats for a soccer team. And when I say quick, I mean it. I find that basic when a project is meant to be mass produced! 

I chose soccer because it's the biggest sport both in my country, Spain, and also in the country where I'm posted right now, Bolivia. It's a big thing around here, I tell you. Much to my dismay. Why?  Because of my son. Well, he is terribly bad at soccer, so he needs as much encouraging he can get. And here's where team treats come into scene.  *wink*

SRM Stickers - Soccer Team Treats by Lorena - #soccer #pillowbox #kraft #srmstickers #sticker #twine

I started with a medium kraft pillow box. I adore these cuties! They're perfect for holding a bit of candy, enough for a pick me up after the game but not so much that the other kids parents will be mad at you, ha!

SRM Stickers - Soccer Team Treats by Lorena - #soccer #pillowbox #kraft #srmstickers #sticker #twine

I trimmed the sentiment from Say It With Stickers/Mini: Soccer, made it into a 4 line sentence and adhered it to the box. Then, I embellished it with a green scalloped border from We've Got Your Border: Halloween and a dotted line from Sticker Stitches: Black.

The final touch was some SRM Twinery black and white twine and a ball also from Say It With Stickers/Mini: Soccer. I adhered it to a bit of cardstock, fussy cut the ball, punched it and tied it with twine.

See? I told you this was quick and easy. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Fancy Cards by Cassonda

Cassonda here today!  I've had some pretty awesome things done for me lately and it's time I show my appreciation. Today I'm sharing with you some cute "mini" cards I created with scraps of cardstock that were cut incorrectly. Never throw away...just make something else out of it. :) This thank you card is for a very special friend of mine and the love card, well, that will get tucked away in hubby's car. (shhhhh)

For the tall card, I sprayed the bottom portion with pink shimmer mist to give it some color (since it's for a girl). I used the Thank You Fancy Sentiment 

On the small card I used the Love Fancy Sentiment Sticker set.  On both cards I added a little bit of white doily peeking out from under the paper.

And on both cards I sewed on all buttons with a little bit of Shore Twinery

So the next time you need a quick project to show you appreciation to someone I hope you will grab for your scraps! Here's the pair of cards I created!  Enjoy!

Be sure to join us tomorrow for more SRM Sticker inspiration.  And be sure to share your SRM creations over on the SRM Flickr.  We have over 7000 posts which will provide you with even more inspiration!

Mini Birthday Box with Tags by Cathy H.

Hello from Cathy Harper!  I have a fun little box full of Birthday Tags to share with you today.  I created this little gift to add to a friend's Birthday Box.  It's a way for her to have Birthday tags to add to presents right at her fingertips.  I used SRM's Clear Rectangle Box to hold my tags and decorated it with Birthday Take 2 StickersBlack Sticker Stitches, and a medium teal Punched Piece.  I just adhered the stickers around the bottom of the box and added a bit of yellow washi tape for more color.  Next, I created a paper bow using my Silhouette Cameo and tied it together with Maraschino Baker's Twine and added the scalloped punch tag!

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

Adorable! Next up, I created all the little tags and envelopes to fill my box, again using my Silhouette Cameo.

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

I made a set of six tags to go inside, all using the same tag and envelope.  I just alternated patterned papers!  All of the tags are decorated with Birthday Take 2 stickers and Medium Scalloped Punched Pieces in different coordinating colors.

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

Once my tags were all tucked inside the mini envelopes, I added a button with a Maraschino Baker's Twine bow to each envelope! Before I filled the little box I added some yellow crinkle paper for a pop more color.  Now my friend has a stash of Birthday tags to add to her gifts.

I love how this little gift turned out and I might even make her a set of Christmas Tags.

Wouldn't it be fun to have a whole row of these little boxes, full of tags for all of your gift giving occasions?  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back again soon for lots more SRM inspiration!

Spooky Treat Box by Annette

Trick or Treat SRM Stickers Friends!
It's me, Annette Allen and today I'm playing with SRM's new Kraft Box which is a total treat!  I love that it's a blank canvas just waiting for me to embellish it to create a gift box or even a mixed media project! 

SRM Stickers - Spooky Treat Box by Annette - #kraft #box

First I wanted to add a little color to the background so I used my watercolors and splashed some orange, yellow and brown. Then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out this spooky pattern.  Now to make it even more spooky I added a spooky spider from Stickers By the Dozen Trick or Treat to a white Punched Piece and a fun border from SRM's Halloween Border set.  That big, bold HALLOWEEN is a sticker too!

SRM Stickers - Spooky Treat Box by Annette - #kraft #box #halloween #stickers

To create this spooky banner on the outside edges I used: SRM's Stickers by the Dozen Spiders and Candy Corn Halloween BordersWe've Got Your Stickers Treats and Punched Pieces in white, black and orange.

You thought I was done, right?
Well I had to put something inside. I used my Silhouette Cameo to made these fun mummy treat boxes and added sentiments from SRM's Stickers By the Dozen Halloween.

Mini Calendar by Cassonda

Greetings fellow SRM Sticker fans!  Cassonda Tadlock here today.  Are you already thinking about the new year? I tend to plan things in "quarters" so I am already looking at plans for January and beyond.  I wanted to give my niece a little calendar book she can keep in the small pocket of her backpack to use at school. This "krafty" calendar is actually made from one of SRM's chevron embossed kraft bags.

Want to make one of these little cuties?  Here's how!  Using one of SRM's Embossed Chevron bags, I cut all the sides off of one of the kraft bags and then cut in half so you have 2 long strips. Accordion fold your strips so you have 6 squares on each strip. 

Place your mini calendar stickers on some pretty paper (The stickers are clear so the paper shows through!), cut with a trimmer and adhere to the accordion folded strips. (I adhered the back of June and July together so the calendar would be one long strip.)

Fold the calendar up, tie a ribbon around it and add one of the Year of Memories Calendar Sticker Tags. Place it inside a decorated glassine bag for a pretty gift presentation. I used the Valentine and Birthday Birdie Stickers to decorate the front of the glassine bag.

These would make such cute stocking stuffers for your friends! I plan on creating a bunch more before Christmas. I hope this also helps you get ready for the new year! 

Here's the embossed kraft bag that I used for the base of my calendar.

And here's the glassine bag that I tucked it into.  

So how many of these fun little calendars do you want to make?
Thanks for stopping by!

★{May Your Days Be Merry & Bright…}★ by Shannon

Christmas is coming and there's nothing better than a homemade project. Shannon Morgan here today to get you started on your Christmas crafting!  The ornament I'm sharing today can double as a money holder or sweet treat holder.  You can present it as is...or leave it for someone to find nestled in the branches of the tree Christmas morning!

I'm going to show you how to create this cute ornament with some really great tips! 

It's an ornament that packs in a lot of detail, but is simple and clean!  I've given you a little tutorial on this project below.

Want to know how to create this little cutie?  Read on for a step by step tutorial! It's like taking a class with me guiding you all the way!  Click on the photos to see a larger image.

1.  Assemble your SRM Square Box. Take an 1/8" Hole punch and punch a hole on two sides on the flaps so you can close the box, have the twine lay right and hang it from the tree. Grab three equal lengths of twine. I chose red, green and pink. Thread the twine through one of the punched holes, tie all three into a knot and repeat on the other side. Your ornament is now able to hang from a tree, a hook, a door knob, depending on the length. 

2.  Pick a side and begin covering. I cut a 2X2 piece of vellum and adhered it to the panel with a few foam dots. I kept them towards the middle so the wouldn't show through the vellum. The next thing I did of course is add an awesome SRM Sticker, Take 2: Stickers By The Dozen/Christmas

3.  I then added sequins in a "perfectly random" pattern. I used clear glue for this, just a dab!

4.  For the second panel I used the red strip of We've Got Your Sticker in Merry, I used two strips because I needed six to cover the panel. I saved any that I had leftover by re-sticking it to the sticker sheet.

5.  The second part to this panel is adding a little detail. Santa's happy face works just perfectly for this. Sticking with the light and airy feel, I turn again to the vellum. Santa's on that same We've Got Your Sticker MerryCut a 1X1 square of vellum, place Santa in the middle and fold over the top right hand corner as shown. Place a foam square on Santa's beard and adhere it to the box as shown. If you'd like a more uniform look, place it in the middle. There's no wrong or right way to do this. 

6.  The third panel is super fun because it's exactly what is says it is: merry & bright! Take a "merry & bright" label from Labels By The Dozen/Christmas. Add a cheery little Gingerbread Man as shown from Stickers By The Dozen/Gingerbread Man. Glue on some more sequins. The heart is a mini punch. I punched out glitter paper and added a foam dot to the back. Adhere it amongst the sequins. (If you don't have a punch, you could use a tiny wood veneer.)

7.  This last panel is mimicking the 2nd panel in it's clarity. The great thing about SRM is that there's a variety of fun patterns and fonts to choose from. Even better? They all coordinate with each other so well! Begin by selecting "Merry Christmas" from Stickers By The Dozen/Christmas. Cut it in half so you have two words instead of one long sentiment. Place the merry in the upper left corner as shown. Place Christmas right under it, this can be imperfect so don't worry about straight lines.  Select "merry & bright" from We've Got Your Border/Christmas. Trim off one sentiment from the border strip. Adhere it to the panel as shown just below Christmas. Grab a red "noel" from We've Got Your Sticker/Merry and adhere it slightly overlapping the "merry and bright". Tuck any overhang onto the bottom. Select "joy" from the same sheet and adhere it to the lower left hand corner. It's ok if most of it ends up on the bottom part of the box. Grab a stocking from Say It With Stickers/Christmas. You're going to cut out the stocking and add it to the top right. I added sequins again and used clear adhesive as mentioned above. I also punched out another heart and placed it next to noel. 

 Thanks for letting me share with you! I hope you have a wonderful day & get inspired!  How many of these little cuties do you plan on making?

Halloween Doily Tutorial Treat by Shantaie

Hi!  Shantaie here with a fun new way to use SRM's 6" doilies.  I'm always looking for fun new ways to package and present treats, and really could a doily jack-o-lantern be any cuter? Want to see the trick to this treat?  They are really quite easy. 

SRM Stickers - Halloween Doily Tutorial Treat by Shantaie - #srmstickers #stickers #halloween #doilies #punchedpieces

1.  Start with a shallow container big enough for the 6" doily to fit into and fill it with 1" of water and squeeze several drops of orange food coloring into the water and mix.

2. Dip one doily at a time into the dye and let sit for a few seconds. Gently remove doily and let excess liquid drip off, lay flat on a scrap paper.

3.  Lightly spray with a shimmer mist and let dry completely. Totally dry!

4. Cut out a cute or creepy Jack-o-lantern face from SRM's black Vinyl and transfer it to the center of the doily.

5. Stitch along the outer edge of the doily beyond the lace, leave a small area open to fill with candy, and close.

6. Fold a green Punched Piece into thirds towards the center and fold back the right side, attach with a tiny staple, add a leaf and ribbon, make a bow from gold bakers twine and pop a flower in the center. 

7. Add a little tag embellished with a trick or treat sticker and your Pumpkin doily is ready to give!
