Whimsie Doodles Valentine

Hi everyone! I’m sharing some NEW Valentine’s Digis from Whimsie Doodles today. These can either be small Valentine’s, or toppers for treat bags. Super easy and cute!

I used Photoshop on my computer to color these images in, and then I printed them out and mounted them on some cardstock for a bag topper.

You could fill these bag with most anything, not just candy.

These new releases will be available for purchase & download in just a few short days. Be sure to check out the Whimsie Doodle blog for more information on new releases and challenges, too!

Gift Idea: Tile Photo Coasters

I’m sharing yet another DIY Christmas present…some handmade photo coasters…courtesy of Pinterest, of course!

I followed this pinned tutorial and put a few sets of these together for loved ones. They were SO super easy to make (I know I always say that, but I really mean it this time!) I simply made prints from my local CVS (glossy or matte finish, doesn’t matter) and cut them down to fit my tiles. I found my tiles at Lowes – they cost 34 cents a piece. You can’t beat that! I used Modge Podge to adhere down, coated the top a few times with Modge Podge, and finished them off with several coats of the Modge Podge Matte finish sealer. My only advice is to use that stuff in a well ventilated space. It’s messy…and stinky…!

Here’s the final result. Brooke’s Auntie just loved getting these personalized coasters. I figure that as the years go on I can update her collection with more recent photos. Fun!


Last minute stocking stuffer…literally!

for those of you looking for those last minute items to fill up the stockings, I have the perfect solution for you:

stockings :)

I used the “cozy toes” digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles to create a tag to wrap around a new pair of socks. This is a great way to wrap up something boring but make it cute & festive! (just simple coloring with Copics, no shading blending – quick & easy)

You can check out more new releases and samples of Whimsie Doodle stamps on the blog. Also, I’ve had a few questions on how to print & use these stamps. I am working on putting together a tutorial for that soon. So stay tuned! :)

Craft Fair Goodies & VIDEO: Wine Bottle Gift Tags

Hi everyone! I have another video tutorial to share with you today. After seeing a few versions of these, I was inspired to try creating some wine bottle gift tags of my own. I am really loving the Carta Bella and Echo Park collections from A Cherry On Top, so I decided to use them on these, and also show you how to make them. Scroll to the bottom for the video.

Here are the photos of the various tags that I’ve made:

The opening at the top allows you to just slip these tags over the neck of the bottle. This is so much more fun than a wine bottle bag..! Or, you could still put them in a bag and use these too!

Just some more examples using various stamps and dies…

Here is the one we are making in the video. I’ve linked to all supplies at the bottom of this post. You can also find my article with full supply listing over here on A Cherry On Top.

You can watch the video on these below, or over on YouTube. Thanks!
