Just Because by Tobi Crawford


Hi! It's Tobi Crawford here with a quick and easy gift tag (and bag). 
I was contacted by a colleague who wanted me to buy him some essential oils for his S.O. (how sweet!!) so I made a little tag to go with the gift. 


I was sneaky and used a couple of Christmas products: 
Patterned paper (from a Christmas pad)


Such a cute project made quickly with easy-to-use products!!

Happy National Christmas Card Making Day by Giorgia!


Did you know that today is National Christmas Card making day?
Hello SRM friends, Giorgia here and today I want to share Clean & Simple style card I created for Christmas. 

This card is really simple to make, also by beginners: you only need cardstock, an embossing folder, washi tape and, of course, the amazing Christmas themed SRM products!



To realize this card I created a card base where I layered a white cardstock embossed with a snowflake pattern. Then I added a strip of gold glittered washi. Finally I added a gold glitter circle where I adhered a sticker from Fancy Sentiment/Christmas. Adhere it with foam tape to create dimension. I think the white and gold combination is so fancy and elegant!


In few minutes, with SRM stickers, you can create a lovely gift for the holidays! I hope to have give you an idea.

Until next time,
ciao, Giorgia

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop


Welcome to SRM's Blog!  We are so excited to be participating in the Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  And excited to be a Super Sponsor.  We will be posting 
special posts throughout the week from different design team members.  Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to WIN our Coffee Plans stamp set that will be used in all the projects. 



Today we are sharing a fun project from Shanna Slater who loves coffee and crafting.  What a perfect combination!

And now let's hear from Shanna in her own words! 

Hello fellow caffeinated crafters!! 
Shanna here, and I am back again today to help celebrate the Winter Coffee Lover's Blog hop with super sponsor SRM Stickers!  I utilized the ever-so-versatile Coffee Plans stamp set that SRM carries which worked perfectly for my gift card holder... Just in time for holiday gifting!


I adore this sentiment, and have used it on a variety of projects.  I will list the supplies below I used for this particular one :)
I hope you enjoy it, and happy hopping!!

Festive Thank You Card Gift Set by Karen


A set of cute thank you notes is a great gift for teachers or friends. I'm still a believer in sending personalized thank you notes and I know there are others out there who appreciate those handwritten notes, too. Using SRM's stickers makes producing several sets really easy. My cards have a cute Christmas theme and will be given to my daughter's teachers. I think they will appreciate them!


I found a bright striped paper in my holiday stash and used it as the main background for this card set. I think layers add so much to cards, especially when you want to keep it simple like these. A layer of black behind the white center makes it pop! I incorporated the cute star / list stamp from the School Days Planner set and added traditional Christmas colors behind the clear stickers to match the theme. The Thank You sentiment is from a non-holiday Stickers By the Dozen set and the cute gingerbread man is from the Stickers By the Dozen Gingerbread Man set. I also grabbed my pre-cut scalloped circle shapes from my stash. You could use a punch or a die cut to make these quickly, too. 


A set of 7-10 cards plus envelopes fit nicely in an A7 size clear box. I added red and silver crinkly paper to my box, too, which really makes it look festive. Nothing more is needed but a bit of twine to tie it all together.

Christmas Decor Tray by Melanie


Hello! Melanie here today to share a tray I decorated for the upcoming Christmas holiday. I used two different SRM Press sticker sheets: Quick Cards/Peace and Fancy Sentiments/Christmas.


 The clear backing helps the stickers to blend seamlessly with the patterned papers.  


Adding a few embellishments here and there completes the look for simple, yet classic decoration for our home this holiday season.


Happy Holidays!

Be Merry Candle Gift by Shelly


Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Today I'm sharing a simple gift idea with you!


I started with my candle jar and simply wrapped some wired burlap ribbon around it. After I used some red jute twine and tied it around the burlap. Easy, right?!...Next, I used a festive holly die cut with green cardstock. Which I layered two times. 


To finish things off, I added 'be merry' to a circle die cut piece using kraft cardstock and punched a hole at the top. Once done, I added everything to my jar and tied things off. Simple yet makes for a sweet gift, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Home Decor with SRM Vinyl by Shanna


Hello Crafty friends!!  Shanna here, and today I am showing off a fun and easy desktop easel and a canvas that I personalized with the ever-so-versatile SRM Vinyl!


I found the easel at my local Wal-Mart and fell in love with it....I love the look of chalkboards, but don't really enjoy the messiness of chalk.  So I figured I would create a faux-chalk look with white vinyl on the black chalkboard side of my mini-easel!  


I love how it turned out!  I plan on displaying it on my mantel off and on throughout the year, because let's be honest.... A family of 5 is ALWAYS and adventure!!

The Canvas was an extra I had from a different project and I have been eyeing the "family rules" idea for a while now.  I used a file from the silhouette store and sized it to the size of the canvas.  I prepared the canvas first by painting it with black acrylic paint to get the "chalkboard look".  I really like how it cam out and will definitely be proudly displaying it in my home.

Thanks for stopping by!  
See you soon,

Personalizing Containers with Vinyl by Samantha


Hello! Samantha here today to show you 3 different ways to personalize SRM containers with vinyl. This is a super easy and fun way to take your packaging up a notch. 

All you'll need is an SRM clear container or one with a window (like the kraft box on the bottom), some vinyl (I used matte vinyl, metallic vinyl, and holographic vinyl, but any SRM vinyl will work), and a way to cut vinyl (I used a Silhouette Cameo).  


You can get into the wedding spirit by personalizing wedding favors or a wedding gift box. A gift card will fit perfectly inside one of these clear rectangular boxes. Layering metallic vinyl give the packaging a fancy look. 


Add initials to a box for the perfect packaging for a graduation, birthday, or Father's Day gift. You can use the recipient's school colors or favorite colors, too!


Or, you can just go ahead and add the recipient's full name. Add their nickname and a bit of holographic vinyl to really make it pop. I created the above container with my 3 year old niece in mind! 


Weather it's a special occasion, a holiday, or a just because gift, you'll be ready to add a little extra pizazz to your packages with some SRM vinyl.

Happy Holidays Jute Twine Card by Shantaie


Hello!  Shantaie joining you today with a non-traditional colors Christmas card. 


You may not immediately imagine the color black when you think of Christmas, but when you add a white banner across the front of a black card it really pops! I was inspired by all things tartan this holiday season, and those scrumptious reds and greens almost always intersect with black!

 To really make this stamped card bright I added a red jute twine bow front and center of the banner and added that sweet little sentiment found on the we've got your border Christmas sheet, several sparkly dots fill in as berries and I used a white gel pen to fill in any areas that didn't get stamped clearly a great tool to have on hand when stamping in white!

I so often find life too busy to mass produce cards, and when I do I love using clear stickers to add the perfect sentiment in a snap!!

Merry Christmas by Shelly


Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Today I'm swinging in to share a fun Christmas card with you! 


I started with my base, which I chose kraft cardstock for. After I did a little cutting with some snowflakes and white cardstock. Easy peasy, right?!...Once done I simply arranged them on my card and then glued them down. 


Next, I added a strip of red cardstock with a 'Merry Christmas' sticker on it. Then added some foam squares on the back and added it to my card base. To top things off, I added a touch of jute twine. Simple and sweet, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
