Birthday Baby!

Hello Everyone!  I have another scrapbook page to share today.  I used the It's My Party designer series paper stack on this page.  That paper is turning out to be a very versatile paper, I have used it so many times!

I added some fun little dots from the It's My Party collection, they somewhat mimic the confetti.  The little candle is from the Cutie Pie box framlits.

The Happy Birthday tag was made from the Crazy About You Bundle, a great set for scrapbooking.

Pretty Gift bag!

Hello everyone!  Today I am sharing a gift bag that I made.  I love to make little gift bags and with Teacher Appreciation just around the corner I thought I would experiment with a few.   The new Botanical Builder Framelit Dies as so great for adding floral accents, I love the cut out petals.

This bag is super easy.  You make a simple base, whatever size you want, and add the sides, how ever tall you want.  Super customizable!  I made this base 5 by 2 1/2 in Basic Black.  Score a half an inch around all four sides.  Snip the little tabs at the sides and fold them up.

This little tray type piece will form the bottom of your bag.

Next choose your paper for the sides.  I added tear tape to the bottom and up one side.   I cut mine at 12 by 4 1/4.

Start in the center of the back and carefully wrap the paper around the base.

 You will end with a bag like this.

I then cut 4 strips 12 by 1/2 inches, two for the handles and two as trip for the top and bottom of the bag.

I used tear tape to adhere the trim and the handles.

I cut several flowers with the Botanical Builder Framelit dies.  I used a bone folder to curl some of the petals slightly and layered some centers.

For this bag I chose Watermelon Wonder and Blushing Bride.

This bag uses Bermuda Bay and Pool Party, with a tiny accent of Crushed Curry.

Where did that beautiful Bermuda Bay and Watermelon Wonder glimmer tape come from you ask?  It is the Sale-A-Bration glimmer tape, sponged with ink to match the bags!  So great!  Free with a $50 purchase!

I hope that you like my project today!  Perhaps you will make one of your own!
Thanks for stopping by!

Remarkable You

I  just love the Remarkable You stamp set. The images are larger than usual and are great with or with out coloring in.
Here I choose to use the Calla Lilies.  The black patterned paper from the Color Me Irresistible Designer Series Paper is so nice.  The shinny black stripe on the black background is perfect for a fancy card.  Think wedding and graduations too.  I mounted the black onto a card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock.
The Whisper White layer on top of the black layer was stamped with the leaf image and then run through the Big Shot with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

I stamped a couple of the lilies and colored them with Wild Wasabi and Crushed Curry markers, then cut them out.  I made a layer of silver thread swirls and then used dimensionals to attach the lilies.

  I layered the sentiment with a strip of Everyday Chic Washi tape and some Wild Wasabi Seam Binding Ribbon, which I mushed up a bit by rolling it into a ball and fraying the edges a little.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Don't forget, Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end, get your FREE Sale-A-Bration item with each $50  you spend now through the end of March! Check out the brochure here.
