With this tin, you will also get to stamp a page of quick, self-adhesive gift tags.
(This cute tin has a see-through window on the lid which you will decorate. This would be great to give goodies to a friend; store your Christmas cards; or to keep scissors, tape, pen, gift tags in and store with your wrapping paper)

12. Treat Jar (w/gift card) $3.50
Back by popular demand --- the treat jar to fill with goodies and use as neighbor, friend, or co-worker gifts. Designs vary. I have lots of different ribbon and beads for you to make yours an original. The felt snowflakes come in 3 different colors. *You will also make a small matching gift card (not pictured) to go with your jar. (These jars are not glass, but a heavy plastic.)

You know you're a scrapbooker when...
(and by scrapbooking, I mean scrapbooking, cardmaking, or really any kind of paper crafting)

  • Your house is a mess because you've been scrapbooking all day.
  • You almost always have your camera with you (who knows when the perfect photo op will happen).
  • You check online galleries and blogs more often than you check the news.
  • You pull buttons off old or outgrown clothes just to use on a layout.
  • You save the ribbon off chocolate boxes, things sold in bundles, and gifts to use on your pages and cards.
  • You save the tags off of clothing just because it's cute, or your child's favorite cartoon character... who knows, you might be able to incorporate it into a page.
  • You change your child's outfit to match the paper you just bought... duh, so you'll have the perfect photo to go with the paper.
  • You wonder if you'll ever get caught up.
  • You are always looking for a new scrapbooking store, boutique, or convention.
  • You save movie ticket stubs, programs from plays, and the map from the zoo so you can scrap it.
  • You have tools your husband doesn't even know how to use.
  • The cashiers at your local scrapbook store know you by name.
  • Your cropping bag is the first thing you pack for vacation, which tends to make your husband/family wonder if your priorities are in the right order.
  • Midnight crop has nothing to do with produce (except maybe your snacks that you bring along... who am I kidding, chocolate and caffeine is all you need)!
  • You know what EP, CS, and DSP stand for.
  • You have the local scrapbooking store coupons sent to your email.
  • You know that "Scrapbookers don't lie. We embellish."
