my new toy!

So I had this huge box of library index cards I thrifted long ago that I didn't know what to do with until I saw these cute rubber stamps last week, then just like that my crafting mojo started kicking in.

Well, they came in the mail the other day and I just adore them!
Joann's had some sale on their ink pads and I got few in different colours.

My favorite is this birdcage; the index cards with my short note to the buyer will go in these... cute no?

These are just regular brown kraft paper I use for filler in my packages.  Stamped randomly with this cute doily stamp using a white ink and voila! an elegant gift wrap for almost any occassion.

With the holiday season fast approaching I thought it’s time to step it up a little in the packaging department.


  1. ahhh that is awesome!!! I wish I had that too :)

  2. Wow, they are so cute!! I love how you get a new supply and then go crazy with the making because you're so inspired!

  3. I'm sure those will be appreciated. Details make a huge difference. Lovely!

  4. Nancy- it's both fun and scary to wander through Etsy's supply category, I get overwhelm with so much inspiration.

  5. How pretty! What a wonderful idea to use white on kraft paper! I adore that doily stamp!

  6. So cute. I love love love that birdcage stamp! Little touches like these always turn me into a repeat buyer.
