BLOOM: Pressed Hydrangeas


Hydrangeas are definitely one of my favorite flowers but I’ve never been able to successfully get mine to bloom in blue. I know it depends on factors in the soil but whatever I do, I get bright pink blooms. They’re still gorgeous but I do love the look of the blue hydrangeas.

Inkling: fall colors {mustard yellow & grey printables}

I’m still transitioning to fall. I haven’t quite embraced deep oranges and browns yet but I’m getting there. And since I’m taking baby steps toward autumn, I thought I’d make something mustard yellow and grey.

Inkling: gift tag round up

If you’re already done with your holiday wrapping you can skip this post or file it away for next year. I just started wrapping gifts and was looking for some gift tags to print out. I found so many pretty tags, I had to share them with you.

Inkling: vintage valentine’s graphics

It’s still not too late to make Valentine tags to use on gifts and goodies. I made these tags with vintage clipart from the Graphics Fairy.

    
The original graphics were in color. I loved the beautiful colors but wanted to give these tags a more vintage feel. I converted the images to black and white and mounted them on manila hang tags.


You can use these tags on packages, flowers or baked goods.

And, if Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, these vintage bird graphics can be used year-round.

Wishing you all a Valentine’s Day filled with happiness and love.

Upcycling: holiday gift tags

I love to keep the holiday cards that I receive but it usually gets to the point where I have to make some tough decisions on which ones to save. Rather than throw them away, I upcycle them and make gift tags.

These are so easy to make. Just cut up holiday cards using decorative edging scissors or shape cutters. Punch a small hole in the corner and add ribbon or string and you have gift tags ready for the next year.

Holiday cards are usually printed on nice stock, have beautiful imagery and can be used on a variety of crafts.


What do you do with the holiday cards you receive? Leave me a comment or send me an email with photos. I’d love to feature your holiday card upcycling idea.

Inkling: pressed flowers and plant updates

I posted about pressed leaves last week and wanted to share with you the second batch of pressed flowers that I made.


Patience paid off and these little flowers pressed really nicely.


I glued them onto these little hang tags and will use them as gift tags.

Since we’re on the subject of plants, I felt now would be a good time to update you on my previous plant posts. The little propagation experiment didn't work. None of the cuttings sprouted any roots. Maybe next time, I'll stick to an avocado pit or a potato. Those always seem to grow roots.


Also - and this one is hard to admit but my little zen garden terrarium is far from zen. The little elfin thyme plant shriveled up and died. I’m not sure if I over watered it or mortally injured it in during the transplanting. I plan to make a new one soon.


Happily, my succulents are still thriving.

Thankfully, it’s hard to kill a succulent plant.

Inkling: coin envelope gift enclosures


I found a box of coin envelopes in my stash and forgot how cute they were. They're so tiny - they measure 2-1/4” x 3-1/2”. I know...very few people think tiny envelopes are cute but I definitely fall into that category.

I printed out some paper templates and created miniature; yellow notepad, primary writing paper and sheet music gift enclosures.



A strip of each type paper on the envelope can be used for writing the “to” and “from” information.

I now only have about 480 coin envelopes left. If you have a crafty coin envelope idea – please let me know.

Inkling: gift tags galore


One can never have too many pairs of shoes…or gift tags. I found a box of merchandise tags in my stash and decided to dress them up with some scraps of paper.

Do you save little bits of paper left over from projects? I do. And this was the perfect project to use the tiniest bits. The paper I used was printed out from templates found on various sites. One great site is http://www.freeprintable.com/. You can find loads of graph paper and writing paper under miscellaneous / paper.

This was a fun, quick project. The merchandise tags are great to have on hand – especially if you don’t have a nifty die-cutting machine.

Happy weekend!
