Hello, Welcome back everyone!
Today I’m sharing a quirky last minute gift bag idea with you all.
These gift bags are great if you’re in a hurry or for that forgotten present!
Inside each gift bag is a Essie Nail Polish, a manicure set and a small hand lotion.
This is a cute gift idea for anyone who enjoys pretty nails or just a bit of “me time”.

With my nail polish gift idea sorted I wanted a cute and quirky sentiment to match,
So as I’ve done with past projects, I designed my own digital sentiment using GIMP.
I printed my sentiment onto a sheet of Trophee Board White Linen 240 GSM Cardstock,
This paper holds up well to printing and leaves a clean ink impression on the cardstock.
To cut out my banner tag sentiment I’ve used the Stampin’ Up! Banners Framelits Dies.

The printed gift bag I’m using comes from the retired Stampin’ Up! Celebration Basics Kit,
Alternatively you could also use the Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags or Glassine Gift Bags that
Stampin’ Up! supplies, either of these bags would work well for this project.
For my “untraditional” mistletoe I used the MFT Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish die,
Die cutting the mistletoe out of some gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Gold Glimmer Paper.

To assemble the gift bags I’ve attached the banner sentiment and gold mistletoe to the
top of the bag using a Heidi Swapp Gold Binder Clip to hold everything firmly in place.
A stunning last minute gift bag idea made with minimal supplies!
I hope this gives you some inspiration for that last minute gift.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello, Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today I’m sharing my take on a card from the Stitched With Cheer Project Kit.
I’ve chosen to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) the star card design from the kit.
To begin today’s project I started with the card base, making an A2 top folding card,
using the Stampin' Trimmer for my cutting and scoring, using Crumb Cake Cardstock.
Next I used the full wreath from the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and
stamped the wreath image onto my card base using Whisper White Craft Stampin' Ink.

For the large star I’ve used the Stars Framelits Dies, die cutting the star out of the
Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack - this paper is so pretty and festive!
The sentiment comes from the versatile Stitched With Cheer Photopolymer stamp Set,
I’ve stamped the “Merry & Bright” banner sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock
using Basic Black Archival Ink, I’ve then used the coordinating banner die from the
Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies to die cut out the banner.
To assemble my card I’ve chosen to stick pretty close to the original card design.
In place of the burlap ribbon I've added two thin 1/4" wide strips of Gold Glimmer Paper,
these act as a sort of “mock ribbon” under the star and give the card a touch of sparkle.
I then adhered the Warmth & Cheer die cut star over the Gold Glimmer Paper mock ribbon,
popping the star up with Stampin' Dimensionals and centring the star over the stamped wreath.

Instead of having the hand stitched outline around the star I’ve chosen to instead use the
gold twine from the Baker's Twine Trio Pack to make a messy twine bundle to go under my
sentiment banner.
To finish things off I adhered the sentiment banner on top of the messy twine bundle using
more Stampin' Dimensionals, giving my final layer another pop of dimension and depth.
There you have it! My take on the Stitched With Cheer Project Kit star card.
I hope you enjoyed this project and have a go at casing a card design,
Thanks so much for stopping by!
