Sentiment stickers….

Hello friends.

I’m back today with a whack of cards to share.  A while back I got a Jen Hadfield sticker pack from Love is in the Details that was 6 pages of sentiment stickers for making cards.  Sentiments like, Thank you, Hello, Congrats, Celebrate, Thinking of You and Happy Birthday.  All the most common ones we need right?  I figured they would help me make short work of creating a bunch of cards in very little time.

Because of the color theme of the sticker pack, I decided that kraft cardstock would go with all of them, so that was the base from which each card was built.  Either the card base, the card panel and/or some embellishments would be kraft.  Then I pulled out my container of leftover bits and pieces of unused embellishments or die cuts or other shapes that had no other place to call home.  I also decided that my embossing folders had been neglected so I pulled out a few of those.  Beyond that, there are no special techniques I used, just piled on some of this, and combined it with some of that and finished up with 8 cards.  You only see 7 here because I made two of the white star embossed card for friends who are graduating this year.  I’ll just post each of the cards here for you to see and hopefully use for some inspiration for your own card making.

Day 9 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Hi, hello, me again!!  Day 9 of this holiday-focused gift packaging series of posts!

Today, we bring you two paper bag envelope/gift bags (depends on the contents, I guess?) that might look a little feminine and other-occasion-specific, but the concepts and techniques still apply beautifully for a Christmas gift bag.

This first gift bag was run through a Big Shot machine with an embossing folder and then I layered up with the die-cut ephemera pieces to create a lovely and versatile gift package.  The top of the bag has been die-cut with an edge die that folds over at the top and layers with a piece of patterned paper, that coordinates with the rest of the embellishments.

Supplies are pictured below.

The next example is a Birthday gift bag (or card envelope) that is trimmed with 3 different patterns of washi tape and then embellished with pretty ephemera die-cuts.

Supplies used are pictured below.

You can see how little it takes to dress up a plain paper bag, whether it is kraft or white or even patterned, and how quickly you can have a lovely packaged gift for a friend or loved one!

There’s still more!  Check back tomorrow for additional ideas for last minute wrapping!
