Making Treat Bags with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would share these little gifts bags with you. I’m making these to gift some edible treats to my colleagues.

They are really easy to make! Each one can be made with half a sheet of 12 by 12 designer series paper.

You can see how I made this project in my video tutorial….

Start with paper measuring 6 by 10½ inches.

On the short side score at 1½ inches

On the long side score at 3½, 5, 8½ & 10 inches

I have not added any additional decoration to my bags, but you can embellish yours as much as you want!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

And here is my project!

I love this card for the gentleman in our lives and the sentiment is great to send to friends who don’t celebrate Christmas!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

A touch of ink over the embossing adds some definition. This step is totally optional!

The layout works well with the other neutral colours, and could be adapted for a more traditional colour scheme too.

This version uses a Sahara Sand base and Early Espresso ink for the sentiment. I introduced some black with the layer, ribbon and embellishments!

Christmas Wreath Card using the Sparkle of the Season

Hello Everyone,

I’ve had this card idea in my head for a while and I’ve finally managed to make it!

For this layout I used eight die cuts which I then used to create four pieces that I could arrange to form the wreath design.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

The Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon is absolutely gorgeous in real life. It finishes off the card brilliantly.

This sample uses more die cut, 12 in total, and uses a mixture of leaves in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped with Poppy Parade.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Gez Carpenter: Nigezza Creates

Heather Forgan: Stamp With Nellie

Jill Chapman: Paper Daisy Crafting

This month’s theme really got me thinking….. Many of you will know I’m not one for anything fancy, but nevertheless, I have managed to make this card!

Measurements (inches):

Whisper White Base card 5-7/8 x 6-1/4 scored on long side at 4-1/8

DSP 5-3/4 x 4 and 2 pieces 5-3/4 x 2

Whisper White Inner card 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 scored on long side at 3-5/8

DSP 3 pieces 5-1/4 x 3-1/2

If you are using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to add panels, you will also need to cut 4 pieces of DSP 3-5/8 x 2-1/2

You can see how to make this card in my video tutorial….

I love how the different designer series papers work together!

The inside portion folds out. Leave a panel blank for your own handwritten message!

The little bit of extra stamping around the main greeting adds interest without adding bulk.
