Hi guys, it's Erica! I decided that I needed a little visual reminder of my One Little Word...enjoy. The base of it is one of my favorite Punky Sprouts products, the Punky Playground. Those scallops are just the coolest! Aqua is obviously my favorite color so I used it and then pulled some other fun colors to go with it. I've been dying to use that October Afternoon multicolored paper for ages!!! I created this cute little cluster of Lil' Seeds and filled in the spaces with enamel dots. It fills in the center of the Lil' Blossom-Lacy just perfectly! I placed my word on a strip of Lil' Stem-Lacey and accented it with some Studio Calico cardstock feathers tied up with salmon colored hemp twine and a piece of sparkly Bossy Joscie flair! I know that gold is all the rage these days and while I've found the gold love, I still adore silver! That sparkly silver flair inspired all the other silver on this page. I used a silver Sharpie along the edges of the Punky Playground, doodled along the yellow paper with a silver Uniball and edged the aqua paper with a Faber-Castel pen. I'm going to hang this this happy little piece up in my scrap room where I can see it easily and it can remind me to enjoy!

Hello Punky Fans! Kimmy here again. Is it chilly where you live? Even here in Northern Arizona we're due for snow, but I couldn't wait and decided to create my own snowy scene in a jar. (which proved very hard to photograph due to all the reflections) Want to make your own? It's super easy & you don't need much! SUPPLIES: Mason jar Small ornaments/decorations/toys (Go raid the Dollar Store) Fake snow/glitter (I like the "Buffalo' brand) PUNKY Lil Lacy Blossoms PUNKY Lil Seeds PUNKY Lil Stems Adhesive glitter ribbon (mine was by American Crafts) Directions: 1. Place your items in the jar. (You could glue them down, but mine fit snugly enough that I didn't) 2. Add desired amount of glittery snow. 3. Place Lacy Bloom over flat jar lid, & screw top over that to hold it on. 4. Embellish lid with glitter ribbon & twine tied through a button. DONE! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial & would love to see anything you make inspired by it!

Hiya Punksters! Kimmy again, with a magical mini I made just in time to fill with photos from this holiday season! I used Heidi Swapp's "Believe" papers & embellies and knocked it out in no time flat! Here's the front cover, complete with Santa & an adorable chalkboard tag atop a Lil Lacy Blossom. I LOVE this SOUL SPROUT ALBUM ! The layers are just delicious and so fun to have a peek of what's to come! This page has a frame all ready for a photo. My favorite thing about this collection is the BLACK in it! You don't generally see that in Christmas collections & I think it just makes the red & green POP! An embellished envelope to hold some memories or a wish list. The cardboard page of my album was sprayed with Heidi Swapp Citron Color Shine . (My new fave color! Such a lovely glittery green!) Some of the smaller pages with washi tape, banners, & bows! I spy another Lacy Blossom! The perfect photo mat! Another fun tag! This one has a fun vellum frame and another Lacy Blossom with a cute HS embellie on top! I Love these cut out cursive words! More fun vintage Santa with some sequin waste (aka. Punchinella) and a zigzag of washi. I love the layers! Multiple pages in view make this album SO MUCH FUN to work with! Love the glittery deer. They seem to be all the rage ...

Hey everyone! Miriam here today I am sharing some cute ways to dress up your gift boxes for Christmas using Punky Sprouts embellishments. You can use ready made boxes, ones that you create with cut files/dies, or use your brand new Gift Box Board like I did. I love the Punky Sprouts embellishments, and used a bunch here. The doilies are a great way to add some softness to your box, and if you aren't a fan of the slits/perforations that you get with some die cutting machines/dies, this is a great way to cover them up. For the tall box, the trees were made using each of the three sizes of Lil Blossoms. Each one is folded into quarters. Before I adhered those I tied a bit of Punky Sprouts twine around the center of the box. The tree trunks were a bit of scrap paper that I stamped using Neat & Tangled's On the Strip stamp - the woodgrain strip. For the little box I wanted more color. I used some more Punky Sprouts doilies, cutting one in half and then trimming off a little excess to decorate the sides of the box. Then I sprayed some Lil' Petals with Lindy's Mist. A little red and white twine was tied around the centers and the dried petals were adhered over top. I just love how these turned out, and they really were so easy to do.

Hi Punky fans, Erica here with a Christmas display for you. I used a sheet of Punky Playground for the base and layered Echo Park Christmas papers on it. I sprayed the Lil' Blossoms-Lacy with red and two colors of green Lindy's mists to get the right color. I used that same combo of greens on the Lil' Stem-Lacy. This board could be used to display your most recent Christmas cards, your favorite holiday photo or you could even turn it into a fun Christmas countdown!
