Cardmaking,  Stamping Inspiration

Handmade Gifties and Goodies

I am not sure about you but I love to give AND receive handmade gifts.  There is a part of yourself that gets permanently placed into a handmade gift for a loved one.  Whether it be the tissue paper rose your second grader gives you or a time consuming crocheted blanket from your mother (thanks Mom!) or a plate of cookies from a thoughtful neighbor.  These tokens of ourselves and our time leave lasting impacts on those we gift to. Somehow it means more to get handcrafted goods.

Now – I do NOT want to shame or guilt those out there that don’t give or make handcrafted goods because you can totally be like me and bring a plate of store bought treats to parties and tell people you made them without guilt.  Seriously, you have permission.  Totally not a big deal.  In fact!  Go a step further and throw one of these stamps on a blank tag and make people truly believe that you made them!

My point is – go make something!  I tried to get a little range in this new stamp collection and I hope there is something for every hand made gift giver out there.

Here are some of the tags, cards and even wrapping paper I whipped together in the last week and have plans for many more.

I hope to hear from you all and that you tell me which speak most to your CREATIVE gift giving self!  I hope something stands out to you and that you make great use of it in your efforts to give a piece of yourself by making handcrafted items for your loved ones…

(or store bought with a handmade card of deceit like me!)

OK Dudes, that is all for me for now.  I should probably go make more cute tags with the stamps I haven’t featured yet but I have got hungry kids and an antsy husband on his day off and we are heading to the beach for a picnic lunch!  Check out the Spellbinders website for all of the stamps!

Now, do that now please.  Hurry.  Bye.
