Little Brown Bag… September 16, 2008

Hi All,

Been doing that krafty thing again.  As you know I’m obsessed with kraft paper.  I bought some little kraft bags at Hobby Lobby and decided to spruce them up…

Not all kraft paper is created equal (meaning color).  To make things more cohesive, I’ve inked the edges in Chesnut Roan from Colorbox.  The tree was traced using 3 different size triangle stencils.  The bag on the right is stamped with a “curl” stamp by Stampabilities.  I will give a complete product list at the end of this post.

These little bags can be filled with a Christmas message as seen above or a gift card as seen below.

Fill with your favorite Target gift card or some other store. 😉 

Again, inked edges make the different colored kraft paper look more cohesive.

“Happy Holidays” was printed on my printer using the Cooper Std Black font.  You don’t need to have a huge inventory of stamps if you have a computer and printer.  I used a fun glitter pen to fill in the Christmas tree. 

Grab your scraps and get started on some Christmas goodies!!!  Thanks for looking!

Here a couple of simple cards to share.  No big frills, just some cute paper, a “saying” and a little embellishment or two.

I like this card.  I have a difficult time coming up with masculine cards.  Even with the polka dots – this could be used for a male birthday. 

Materials: Card: DMD; Patterened Paper: Jillibean Soup; Ribbon: Berwick Offray; Stamp: Unknown (sorry) ; Ink: Ranger; Brads: The Paper Studio

Some fun colors put together for a simple “thank you” card.

Materials: Card: DMD; Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup; Ribbon: Berwick Offray; Stamp: Hero Arts; Ink: Ranger, Colobok

Very, very basic and no stamps needed!!  I know I’ve said it before, but I use my computer for tons of journaling and also card titles or sayings. 

Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup; Felt Leaves: Target $1 bins
