Mixed Media Tags & Video by Shery


Hello, SRM friends! Shery here to share mixed media tags and a video using some of my favorite SRM Stickers products. If I were to pick my absolute favorite from all the stickers by SRM, I'd say it's the Sticker Stitches! I simply love them because they can add so much interest to any project. The Sticker Sentiments are fabulous, as are the Punched Pieces.


I created my tags from one sheet of 9" by 12" watercolor paper, which I cut in 8 equal parts, so each tag measures 3" by 4.5". I used different media (Gelatos, watercolor brush pens, Inktense blocks, Twinkling H2Os, gesso, and modeling paste) plus stamps, inks, and stencils.

For my first set of tags, I used Gelatos over some whipped spackle. I stamped some leaves to create a subtle background then used the Black Sticker Stitches. Then I applied modeling paste over a chickenwire stencil and gave it some shimmer with autumn butternut Twinkling H2Os. I sponged vintage photo Distress ink on large yellow Punched Piece and medium white Punched Piece punch pieces, layered them, and used the sentiments from the Sticker Sentiments/Thank You sheet.

I did the background for this second set of tags the same way I did the first set, only this time I used Inktense blocks. I sponged vintage photo Distress ink on large yellow and orange punched pieces, layered them, and used the sentiments from the Sticker Sentiments/Fall sheet.

For my last set of tags, I used watercolor brush pens for the background. I wanted these two tags to be completely flat so I picked two of the bold sentiments from the Sticker Sentiments/Thank You sheet and stuck them directly onto the tags.

 I have a video showing how I made the tags from start to finish and I hope you enjoy it! I made these tags assembly line style so they made for quick work :o) Thanks so much for letting me share my project with you today! Hope they inspire you to use SRM Stickers -- they're awesome for mixed media!  View the video HERE!

Noel Home Decor by Christine


I absolutely love the look of burlap and doilies together and I think done right they can make awesome home decor for the holidays.  Christine joining you today and I am going to share with you how I made a simple holiday decor using White Matte Vinyl and Doilies.  I picked up these burlap canvasses at a craft store and they are nice because they can either sit on a shelf or be hung from a wall. 


I cut out the letters N E and L on my electronic die cut machine and attached those to my burlap canvas. My burlap canvasses were all 6 X 6 so a 5 inch letter worked great!


Instead of using an O cut from vinyl I used a 6" White Lace Doily topped with a  4" White Lace Doily.  I then added a pretty red bow to the bottom to give it the look of a wreath and bring in some color.


One of my favorite things about this project is that with supplies in hand, it takes only about 30 minutes to complete. And let's face it we all need those extra minutes as the holidays approach!

Good Morning SRM Stickers friends. 
Annette here with you today to share some fun ways to gift money on Christmas. 

I don't know about you but I have a hard time picking out things for my nieces and nephews so I like to think of fun ways to gift money. Well this year I am using SRM Stickers Mini Tubes. I just love how easy it is to decorate these tubes and so many fun things you can put in them for stocking stuffers.

The gift of money.. one of the best things to put in a stocking.  Decorated in these cute tubes you can't go wrong.

Pssst…. take a close look at those caps covered in fake snow! :)  And don't you just love that bow tie?  It's a die from Lil'inker Designs. The Snowman stamp is from Lawn Fawn.  I love how SRM works so well with pretty much any other product.

Mini Calendar Shaker Card by Shantaie


How's it shakin'? Shantaie Fowler here with a really fun way to use our mini calendars that will be as much fun for you as it will for the lucky one who gets the card!

SRM Stickers Blog - Mini Calendar Shaker Card by Shantaie - #birthdaycard #birthday #shakercard #minicalendar #stickers #twine #DIY #srmpress #srmstickers

Cut a fun shape with a window to see the Mini Calendar of the birth month inside, mark the birthday with a sticker, a stamp or a little confetti hat like I have done with this one. Fill the shaker with sequins, beads, and chunky glitter. I used my Silhouette to cut out this cupcake, but there are lots of ways to make a window if you don't have an ecutter. Dies, (like our wafer die) punches, and good old fashioned scissors will all work just fine! 

SRM Stickers Blog - Mini Calendar Shaker Card by Shantaie - #birthdaycard #birthday #shakercard #minicalendar #stickers #twine #DIY #srmpress #srmstickers

I looked to my SRM stash for a few decorative elements to "top off" my cupcake and added a sweet heart from Valentines Stickers by the Dozen to a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it out and popped it right on top of the glittered "icing"  I also used the Valentines We've Got Your Border for the little flag banner and trim in between my washi tape. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Mini Calendar Shaker Card by Shantaie - #birthdaycard #birthday #shakercard #minicalendar #stickers #twine #DIY #srmpress #srmstickers

To give the cupcake "wrapper" texture I embossed it with a striped folder and added a sticker from the Birthday Stickers by the Dozen ....can you tell I love these;)  Bright, cheerful and fun to personalize, mini calendars just may be the next shakin' trend in shaker cards!

Guest Designer - Marcia Moss


Today on the SRM blog we feature one of our favorite customers, Marcia Moss, the very talented owner of Dandylion Wishes in St. George Utah. 


Marcia is crazy for all of SRM's containers and she does the most wonderful things with them.  Marcia never ceases to amaze me with all her crafty ideas!  In fact, she was who suggested that we sell these Kraft Boxes, which we use for our DIY kits, as she saw a lot of crafty potential in them.

For example, how do you take this empty SRM Kraft It! kraft box…. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Marcia Moss - #kraftbox #kraft #container #box #DIY #homedecor

and transform it into a beautiful keepsake? 

SRM Stickers Blog - Marcia Moss - #kraftbox #kraft #container #box #DIY #homedecor

Let's just show you how Marcia transformed the kraft box, creating a beautiful home decor piece. 

First, Marcia secured the box with score tape when putting it together to make sure that it would be sturdy. She put score tape on both of the side flaps.

And then she put score tape on the front flap.

Once her box was sturdy, she spray painted it black and added a beautiful photo of her granddaughter.

 She added some braided ribbon down the side of the photo which really dresses it up.

Next comes some pretty glitter tulle, twine and flowers to embellish it.

 What a precious treasure to create!  And what a wonderful gift this would make.

There's still time to create your own precious treasure and remember, it all
began with a plain kraft box! :)

Thanksgiving Teepee by Michele


Michele here with a Thanksgiving decor/table setting idea.  Every year I host Thanksgiving and I wanted a cute way to decorate everyone's plate. I found this cute teepee cut over at the Silhouette store and thought it would be perfect for our Thanksgiving celebration. I used the thanks sentiment from the 

SRM Stickers Blog - Thanksgiving Teepee by Michele - #thanksgiving #homedecor #thanks #stickers #DIY

I added some gold leaves and a sunflower to make my teepee a bit feminine and girly. ;) For my finishing touches I added feathers to the top and some coordinating ribbon.

I am planning on making enough for each person and hope I can post a picture of my "real" table on Thanksgiving.  ;)

Holiday Decor with Vinyl by Cathy A.


Hello!  Cathy Andronicou joining you today with a fun idea for the holidays.   I can't resist a bargain at Ikea and this battery operated candle is no exception! The only thing is, it looks a little too plain!  So I whipped out my super shiny SRM Gold Vinyl, a few dies and enhanced it!

Here's what the candle looked like before enhancements,  fresh from Ikea!
 SRM Stickers Blog - Holiday Decor with Vinyl by Cathy A.- #srmstickers #vinyl #homedecor #christmas

With the help SRM Stickers Gold Metallic Vinyl-Glossy a Penny Black die and a Spellbinders Grand Circle die, it can be transformed!

SRM Stickers Blog - Holiday Decor with Vinyl by Cathy A.- #srmstickers #vinyl #homedecor #christmas

Die cut the deer from the Gold Metallic vinyl, don't throw away the waste, use the circle die to create a stencil for another project.

Adhere the vinyl to the candle and voilá it is done in a jiffy!

SRM Stickers Blog - Holiday Decor with Vinyl by Cathy A.- #srmstickers #vinyl #homedecor #christmas

Now for that waste that was put to one side.  I found an inexpensive glass cookie jar, and placed the stencil waste on one side, then added some Armour Etch - Glass chemical etching cream and left for around 15 minutes.

SRM Stickers Blog - Holiday Decor with Vinyl by Cathy A.- #srmstickers #vinyl #homedecor #christmas

Once the etching cream has worked it's magic, wash off thoroughly with water and then remove the vinyl.  If you remove carefully it can be reused.

Your jar is now ready to fill with yummy cookies!  Love how the light from the candle glows!

And even with the candle turned off, it still looks festive!

What a fun treat to leave out for Santa!

Thanksgiving Table Treats by Tessa


Hello!  It's Tessa with you today, sharing an idea for your Thanksgiving table.  It's always fun to give a little treat on the holidays and I thought I'd use a kraft pillow box for mine this time.

SRM Stickers - Thanksgiving Table Treats by Tessa - #srmstickers #thanksgiving #pillow box #kraft #twine #stickers #doilies

I used stamps from Darcie's, patterned papers from Pink Paislee's Solstice 6x6 pad, gold doiliesStrawberry Coral twine, and the Fall sentiment stickers from SRM to decorate my boxes.  


I colored the stamped images with Prismacolor colored pencils and fussy cut around them.

SRM Stickers - Thanksgiving Table Treats by Tessa - #srmstickers #thanksgiving #pillow box #kraft #twine #stickers #doilies

Isn't this sentiment perfect for this cute image of the kid dressed up as a turkey?  I love how they look together!  I also love how the gold doily looks peeking out from behind.

SRM Stickers - Thanksgiving Table Treats by Tessa - #srmstickers #thanksgiving #pillow box #kraft #twine #stickers #doilies

Although the boxes are very secure and don't easily pop open, I used the Strawberry Coral twine to keep them closed through dinner.  We have a lot of kids at our holiday party and I thought the extra twine might keep their hands away from the treats until after dinner. :)

The sentiment stickers were adhered to white cardstock.  I cut them into shapes using a couple of my favorite diecuts.  I used foam dimensional adhesive to adhere them down.  I love the dimension it adds!

Merry & Bright Stocking Stuffer by Lorena


Hello, SRM friends! With Christmas quickly approaching, we'd better get started on holiday crafting, right? What about a cute and oh, so merry stocking stuffer? I made a notepad cover that goes perfectly with the Pencil Sentiments/ Christmas. You just have to adhere a blank mini notepad inside it, or even a sticky notes pad, and there you have it, a very useful little gift!

SRM Stickers Blog - Merry & Bright Stocking Stuffer by Lorena - #christmas #pencils #twine #stickers #stockingstuffer #gift

I started by double scoring a long piece of cardstock to form the cover and make space for the notepad inside. Second, I die cut the bottom flap with a cute border, and lined the inside of the cover with patterned paper. And now comes the fun part: decorating! I used lots of SRM stickers for this!

SRM Stickers Blog - Merry & Bright Stocking Stuffer by Lorena - #christmas #pencils #twine #stickers #stockingstuffer #gift

For the base of the focal point I adhered a label sticker from FreeStyle Christmas to white cardstock and trimmed it. The "merry and bright" sentiment comes from Quick Cards/Merry. I chose this particular one because the font coordinates with the one in the pencil. On the top of the cover, I adhered a border sticker from Sticker Stitches/Christmas and tied a bit of baker's twine. Love the playful look that bow adds! I finished the notepad with a die cut ampersand, some enamel dots and tiny stars die cut from sparkly craft foam.

SRM Stickers Blog - Merry & Bright Stocking Stuffer by Lorena - #christmas #pencils #twine #stickers #stockingstuffer #gift

Oh, and the pencil got a little Christmas treatment too! I had a couple spare die cut stars on my desk, so I adhered them to the pencil. I adore those festive pencils!
