Hello friends, Linsey here! Top of the morning to you! With St. Patty's Day right around the corner, the new St. Patrick's Day Simple Set is a perfect excuse to whip up some fun party favors, cards, and other cute projects! It's also the perfect set to scrapbook your St. Patrick's Day festivities! I really enjoyed playing with these super cute papers and stickers and making this fun test tube treat ensemble! 

Plastic test tubes are a really fun way to present little treats, such as MnM's like I chose to fill my tubes with. This Test Tube Holder Tutorial was used to create the holders with study card stock, then the really fun part, decorating the holders with the St Patrick's Day Simple Set! 

Since all the stickers in this simple set are so cute, it was hard choosing--so I used pretty much all of them to decorate my treat holders. :)  I even used a few stickers to make 2 mini banners. Some pretty ribbon, twine and gold sequin trim was added to each test tube, as well as a fancy ivory button and white spiral stamen to the centers of each bow. These are great to give to friends and neighbors and if you're lucky enough to be having or attending one, these are a perfect favor for all the St Patrick's Day party guests to take home with them! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've gained a bit o'inspiration from my festive test tube treat favors!

Hello there! Linsey here today sharing a brand new altered project and I'm super duper excited about this one! A lot of time and patience went into the making of it and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! If you are winter lover of any kind, I think you'll like it as well! So kick back, chill and enjoy a personal tour of my 3D winter wonderland creation, otherwise known as the Sub Zero Ski Lodge & Snow Park!

I had the most fun designing this festive winter escape and it was done using the new Sub Zero collection--a super cool addition to your Simple Stories stash! Mr. Merry Moose is at the front window to greet all guests upon arrival, answer questions and set you up with whatever your outdoor pleasure is for the day!

The 3-story lodge offers lovely rooms with spectacular mountain views and meals in the charming lodge dining room. For more privacy, choose one of the cozy cabins, each with its own fireplace.

Join in a snowman building contest or take an old fashioned sleigh ride through a winter wonderland!

Rent a pair of skates and go ice skating on Boone's frozen pond or feel the exhilaration of downhill tubing and sledding from the top of Wolf Peak. From the Bunny Hill to Grizzly Drop, the choice is yours! Whether it be skiing, snowboarding or one of the many other outdoor activities, this place is snow much fun for the whole family! All runs are open! 

Afterward, be sure to warm up with a cup of hot cocoa at Frosty's Snowflake Café and sit around the bonfire toasting your toes and recapping on the days activities and fun. 

And that's all for me! Thanks so much for visiting and touring my winter lodge! I hope you've been inspired and are ready to create some winter magic of your own with the Sub Zero collection! Happy crafting!

Hello there! Linsey here today sharing my latest altered project, a fun and festive 3D decoration that is sure to ring in the holidays with cheer! I used the absolutely delightful Very Merry Collection to alter my alarm clock, transforming it into a tiny winter scene leading to Kringle's Bed & Breakfast Inn! Enjoy!

This was so much fun to design and I love how it all came together! This collection is so merry and bright, it is almost impossible to not be filled with the holiday jolly when using it. There are so many sweet details, I couldn't resist using a little of everything. A happy snowman greets all guests and visitors with visions of holiday cheer along the way to 25 Kris Kringle Lane. Warm blankets, presents, caroling and hot cocoa all await you at Kringle's B&B--I don't know about you, but I'm ready to make my reservation! 

I hope you like my project and feel inspired to create some holiday magic with the Very Merry Collection too! Thank you so very much for stopping by! Have a creative and blessed day! Happy crafting!
