Carta Bella Paper: Door Gift Bag & Card

Have you tried creating a customized gift bag and card? Today I am sharing a set using the beautiful Spring Market collection by Carta Bella Paper.

The colors and florals in this collection are so beautiful and would be perfect to use for all kinds of springtime occasions. I thought it would be fun to customize a gift bag for Mother’s Day for your mom, sister, or bestie. But it would also be perfect to use for a wedding or baby shower, or even a birthday gift!

All of the flowers and garden tools reminded me of getting outside. One of the first things I like to do in the Spring, is to hang a fresh wreath on my front door and decorate the front porch with pots of flowers. I used my Silhouette Cameo to die cut the door from Kraft Cardstock, and then created a wreath from the Evergreen Shimmer cardstock using the Spring Greenery Die Set.

A watering can, flowers, and more die cut greenery decorate the steps of the porch on this gift bag!

I couldn’t stop there! I couldn’t resist cutting out one of the darling tags from the Floral Tags paper to add to the top of the gift bag.

It’s fun to create a coordinating card to go along with your decorated gift bag. I cut a quote from one of the 6×6 pattern papers and added it to the die cut frame.

American Crafts: Twilight Gift Boxes

The One Canoe Two Twilight collection by American Crafts makes the prettiest projects for Spring! I recently used this collection to create gift boxes filled with store bought chocolates as thank you gifts.

The soft, pretty colors of the patterned papers with white die cut flowers on top would also be beautiful to use as wedding or baby shower favors … or even as decorations on your Easter dinner table.

I used several metal dies from my stash to create the flowers on top using white American Crafts cardstock. They get a splash of pink with the flower center cut from a scrap of coral pink paper and are secured with a pearl brad.

I also fussy-cut several flowers and leaves from the Twilight Blooms paper to tuck in with the white die cut flowers.

The flowers are adhered to a patterned paper band going around the matchbox-style box. Before adding the flowers, I wrapped white twine around the band several times to add a bit of texture.

I finished each box with a note to the recipient written on the coordinating Twilight Mini Notecards. So cute! (If you haven’t seen these cards yet, be sure to check them out! They come in the cutest little house-shaped box that will be displayed forever on my shelf … it’s ADORABLE!)

Stashbusting: Adore

Hello! Today I have a stashbusting scrapbook page to share!

I always pick my best-looking photos for design team assignments … but I have a LOT of memories that keep getting ignored, simply because the photos I have of them are less than stellar. Time to give those photos some love, regardless of how “pretty” they are.


The starting point for this page was actually a color scheme. I was looking through an interior design magazine online and came across this stark white room with pops of teal and orange and a dark gray couch. It was stunning! I pulled out those colors along with green and gold and got to work creating the following layout.

Confession: I’m not very skilled at coming up with clever titles … or should I say, I’m lazy about coming up with clever titles. Haha! I was just going to call this one “Sunday BBQ” … but then thought to myself … I have so many word embellishments in my stash … I should browse and find one that will work for this page.

So, I pulled out this gray-stained wood word that says, “adore.” I found this at Michael’s a couple years ago in the dollar section. It was actually sold as a magnet, but the crafter in me saw “page embellishment!”

I added a bit of orange grid paper behind the letter “o” and then added a yellow, chipboard arrow (Studio Calico) in the center to point towards my husband.

I have my embellishments stored by color families. As I was browsing through my “Primary” bin, I came across this leftover chipboard city scene from the Shimelle Go Now Go collection. It looks so cute sitting on top of my title! The kite, stars, and clouds above the buildings are vellum stickers from an older Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me Monthly Kit.

I wrote my journaling on a Dear Lizzy tag from my stash and then added more chipboard pieces to the left side. The car is from the same Shimelle Go Now Go chipboard embellishment pack and the arrows are by Studio Calico.

The phrase stickers to the left of the car (across the bottom of the photo) are from the Echo Park Paper Note to Self collection (oldie but goodie!).

Scrapbook Page: Summer Lovin’

I’ve been digging into some older photos and having a blast reminiscing about when my kids were smaller. I’ve been pretty good about keeping up with the major milestones, but I still have a lot of everyday snippets that I want to go back and scrapbook … they are so much fun to see again.

Here’s a page of my daughter when she was just a sprout. She LOVES summer and lived in her swimsuit year round. LOL! On this particular day, she was waiting for her older brother and sister to come home from their Field Day at school and have their own Field Day in our backyard.


I began this page with a sheet of white cardstock and then used the “smooshing” technique along with the Vicki Boutin Oil Pastel Art Crayons in Cool to create the watercolor background. I don’t do a lot of mixed media, but this technique is so much fun! I then pulled in blue and green papers from the Amy Tangerine Sunshine & Good Times collection around the rest of the page.

I love that variegated patterned paper I used for the border (Sail Away Paper) and continued those colors throughout the rest of the page.

I tucked in a few handcut florals from the Sending Smiles paper here-and-there for a bit of contrast. (Ummm … how CUTE is that bird clip with his wing “hugging” the photo of my daughter?! Swoon!)

I love the cacti in this collection and thought they would be fun on this page! I imagine cacti wish for water everyday just about as much as my daughter did. Haha!

A couple of mini puffy bird stickers keep the cactus company.

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out my title (“Summer Lovin” by Loni Stevens; #29889 in the Silhouette Design Store). I then backed each of the open letters with 6×6 papers. I LOVE that the 6×6 paper pad includes foil patterns, too!

Finally, this friendly, inflated cactus adds a bit of personality to the bottom of the page! 😀
