Goody Goody Goody Bags!


So two times in one week!  I'm on a roll.....

Today I wanted to share some cute little goody bags I made.  All the products are from Stampin' Up!
In the Holiday Catalog they had the cutest kraft wrapping paper, Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls, which are now on sale for $3.99.  I love the krafty look, so I'm going to stock up!  Here are my goody bags:

Since the kraft paper for wrapping is thinner than card stock, these are like little brown bags.  I love using kraft colored items, and I just had to throw in the Gold Glimmer Paper hearts and embellishments!  The nice thing about this Mini Treat Bag Die is it comes with dies to create embellishments!  I also created a belly band for each bag to put the decor on!

Above, I used the heart die, added some 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, gold twine, a little "love" tag and some gold sequins.

For this bag, I turned the paper inside out, used the heart die again and added some gold twine.

Here I stamped the belly band with Crumb Cake ink, added a Gold Button and some gold twine to the bottom of the heart.

And of course a Mini Treat Bag needs a treat!  So I used 1" x 8" cellophane bags to put the Brach's Tiny Conversation Hearts in.  They look so cute!  And, I love candy.....

Well thank you for stopping by today!  Have a fabulous weekend!

Teapots & Teacups!

Thank you for stopping by today!!

Well it's been awhile again, a long while.  I've just been posting everything on Instagram (@schalking) and haven't been posting to my blog....  So I'm going to give it a go again.

Happy New Year!  Happy 2015!  I hope this year has started well for you!  I've been stamping away, and baking and walking (and eating)!!

Today I want to share with you this cute Confetti Garland card I made for the Make it Monday #199 - Confetti Garlands.  What a cute idea!  Check out the Capture the Moment Blog and check out the cards!

You can add sequins, buttons, felt goodies, ribbon and paper die cuts, anything really that you can put on a garland (just punch a hole!).  I've been working on some teapot and tea cup cookies and tags for a little girl's tea party birthday party, so I have tea on the brain!

Here is Betsy's card (she also has a tutorial on how to create a confetti garland):

It's so cute, and the garland really pops with the white background!

Here is my card:

I had a lot of fun with this card!  I started with the Tea for Two Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink.

Then I chose the Sweet Girl double-sided card stock collection in the 6 x 6 paper pad.  The ink pads I used are from Stampin' Up!.  The colors are Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight.

Oh and those cute little teapots and tea cups in the garland are from Taylored Expressions.  They're the cutest little dies, tiny and just perfect for tea party decor (and confetti garlands)!

This card can be a birthday, valentine, anniversary or "just because" card.  I've left the inside blank for now, until I decide who gets this card!  Hey, it could even be a Mother's Day card!

Along with teapots and tea cups, I tied little pieces of ribbon on the garland to add a little bit of "shabbiness".   Well I hope you enjoyed your stop by my blog today!  Thanks again for stopping by and have a pleasant evening!
