blog mega destash

Hey guys, thanks so much for checking out my scrappy destash. I have created 8 boxes full of fun goodies. I spent lots of times putting these kits together and they are loaded with 12×12 pattern paper, specialty papers, thickers, alphabet stickers, embellishments, washi tape, and some have stamps. I tried to make kits that would help create a cohesive album but incorporated many different lines and manufactures.

Please note: this is a destash! All 12×12 papers are full sheets and many if not most of the stickers, embellishments, and alphas are brand new, but some of the items have been slightly used. Please see the videos below for a better look at all the products.

To order a kit please go to the video and leave a comment on youtube with your paypal email address. If you do not want to leave your address in the comments, please still leave a comment on the video and then private message me your paypal email address. All prices include shipping in the US and it is first to comment. If you are interested in an already claimed box just comment ‘next for box #’ and you will be next in line.

Please pay via paypal and then I will ship out your box priority mail in a medium flat rate box, and send you tracking number. The paypal email address is codina.kate@gmail.com, I will send you an invoice, please pay within 48 hrs.

Just in case you were wondering 🙂 the prices of the boxes vary depending on how much brand new product, papers, etc the kit has. The ones with more supplies are slightly more 🙂

open box: hallmark scrapbook

I recently discovered Hallmark Scrapbook and placed my first order. Below are the links to the products and a video showing them, and what I plan to do with them, in detail. I always enjoy finding new places online, especially because I do not have any local stores that sell these products.

I wanted to share my overall thoughts on the experience of ordering from Hallmark Scrapbook:

The website is super user friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

They have great prices.

Many of the newest cardmaking products.

They have an affiliate program, which is awesome.

It seems to be more focused on cardmaking which is interesting given the name is Hallmark Scrapbook. I noticed very little scrapbooking supplies, and minimal if any 12×12 paper.

This is not a store for the embellishment shopper, they mainly carry, in my opinion, stamps, dies, tools, cardstock. That being said, they have a wonderful selection of those items and I loved that I could get the latest Lawn Fawn releases and the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock I needed. Most of the time those items would have to come from different places.

I did notice many of the new products were sold out fairly quickly, specifically the newest Altenew and WPlus9 releases. My suggestion would be to get to their website quickly after new releases so as not to miss them.

Shipping is $9.99 or free for order over $99.00, I found that to be a but high but most if not all of the products on their site are discounted so I would imagine it works out to be about retail in the end. Note: the free shipping option is USPS or FedEx and shipped very quickly.

All in all I would definitely recommend checking out Hallmark Scrapbook especially for you cardmakers or stampers. I have not had to deal with their customer service but I will keep you posted if and when I ever need to.

Thanks so much for stopping by and please check out the products linked below and the video.

DIY holiday Gift Wrap & Home decor

One of my most favorite things about the holidays is fun DIY projects. This includes everything from home decor to custom gift wrap. I never realized how super simple (and inexpensive) it is to stamp on regular postal kraft paper and turn it into something beautiful. For this box, I used a layered wreath stamp set. I find that stamps set like this one make the gift wrap look very finished and professional. They are several different companies that make layered stamp sets both for the holidays and all year around. I would recommend using pigment ink when stamping on kraft paper because it sits on top of the paper and doesn’t soak into the paper like dye ink, I have found in my experience that the colors stay more vibrant and true. I especially like the pigment inks from Avery Elle and Colorbox Pigment Petals. I have also used some StazOn to stamp on a simple white gift bag and Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink to stamp on a kraft bag. Make sure to watch the video below to see just how I created these projects.

Next up are some 2 minute pillow boxes perfect for gift cards. Simply pick your favorite pattern paper, run through your die cutting machine, and add some simple embellishment. For these I used a Lawn Fawn die, Sizzix Big Shot, and paper from American Crafts.

Lastly, I wanted a fun canvas to add to our mantel this year and decided to make it using a cut file and the Silhouette Cameo. I picked two images and paired them together then cut using some gold foil card stock. I also cut the images from vinyl and preferred those results and would recommend that instead of card stock because you don’t have to add glue to vinyl! Huge bonus! 🙂 Once adhered to a plain 12×12 canvas, you end up with this adorable addition to your holiday home decor.

Hey guys, today I wanted to share some really fun new stamps & devotional cards from Illustrated Faith. I was so delighted to receive this bundle of goodies from Shanna and just had to share. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the stamps and devotional cards but the let’s not forget about all the thought and design that goes into the packaging.

I chose to paint all over the scripture in my Bible and to write my notes and thoughts in a separate notebook. I used a simple notebook (from Michaels $1 bin) and added a fun sticker from one of the stamps packaging. I have two of these one for New Testament and one for Old Testament. I just love them.
