Bright Silly Happy Colored Tag

April 22nd, 2014 § 1 comments

Hi friends!  Today, I have a project from design team member Heather Pulvirenti to share with you.  Heather used some great techniques on this beautiful gift tag.  First, she used stamps and embossing to give the tag great pattern and texture.  Then she trimmed a piece of a smaller Colored Tag to add a wonderful pop of color.  This is a great way to add a special touch to any gift!  You can accent the tag to match your gift wrap and it will make your recipient feel extra special!

042214Supplies:
Large Colored Tag in Gray
Small Colored Tag in Yellow
Solid Bright White Divine Twine
Stamps and Ink
Embossing Powder and Heat Gun
Cardstock and Rhinestones

Hoppy Easter with Solid Divine Twine

April 20th, 2014 § 1 comments

Hi friends!  Happy Easter to those who celebrate it and happy Sunday to everyone else!  Today, I’m posting a card I made with some Solid Divine Twine.  I love the new colors and decided to combine them with some of the old colors of Solid Divine Twine to make these little banners for an Easter card.  These mini banners would also be cute in scrapbooks, as a little banner for cupcakes suspended on toothpicks or lollipop sticks, on embroidery hoop art, or even in a doll house.  DSC_4417wmSupplies:
Solid Divine Twine in Orange, Deep Pink, Navy, Aqua, Yellow, Light Pink, and Coral
Card Stock and Patterned Paper
Stamps and Ink
Markers

Happy Friday! Shirley Carnos is back as this week’s Guest Designer with some beautiful Mini-Albums that are incredibly simple to make. Take a look at the supply list, only three items on each! And… a little secret, the Silver Bitty Bags she uses are now 30% off on our website! Plus, the bitty size makes them great for gift giving or commemorating a special event.

Matchbook Bitty Bag Mini Album

Made Matchbook style, Shirley uses a paisley pattern for a sophisticated look and Silver Polka Dot Little Bitty Bags to create her pages. Then, she inserts the eyelets and there you go, a mini-album. You can use the pages as your scrapbooking canvas and the pockets the bags create to insert photos, ticket stubs or other memorobilia.

Bitty Bag Gift Wrap with a Vintage Touch

April 17th, 2014 § 0 comments

Hi friends!  Today, I have a fun gift wrapping idea from design team member Marianne Songbird.  Marianne used Bitty Bags to wrap a gift then added some vintage sheet music and some clippings from vintage magazines.  The vintage elements take this wrapping to a whole different level!  Marianne used a Bitty Bag to wrap a music themed t-shirt, isn’t that clever?  She rolled it up and put it inside.  Bitty Bags are amazing for wrapping oddly shaped (and by that I mean not box shaped) items.  She also added a music gift card into the Little Bitty Bag and added it to her gift making it a lovely music themed gift.

Is it Friday already?! It must have been a great week when you hear yourself saying that! Our Guest Designer this Friday is Lindsay Amrhein showing us her spin on a brown paper package tied up with string — or, more exactly, Divine Twine. She wraps Coral around this white on kraft Chevron Bitty Bag. You could also use a white Polka Dot or even white Striped Bitty Bag. Wouldn’t that be cute, too? A simple sentiment on the Sweet Sticky Label with several colorful, enamel dots and you have yourself a simply, perfect package!

Enjoy Kraft Bitty Bag

April 10th, 2014 § 5 comments

Hi friends!  Today, I have a fun project from design team member Amy Tsuruta to share with you.  Amy created this super trendy bag using one of our Plain Kraft Bitty Bags and stamps.  Both neon and brush script/calligraphy are so on trend right now.  This is a great way to follow trends without having to commit to buying a whole bunch of bags.  With stamping, printing with your computer, embossing, or even handwriting or drawing you can take a simple plain bag and turn it into something trendy.
