How cute is this little gift bag made by my friend, Rose Kendell?
The fruity prints of the Taste of Summer papers (CC1038) are perfect for gift bags. This one stands about 5″ high.
She used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge (p79 3D Object). The Cricut cuts score lines making folding super easy. Glue it together with Bonding Memories (Z553) for a strong hold.
The gift tag is made using one of our NEW CTMH Hostess Rewards Stamp sets.
Notice the purple bling on the tag? It’s not in our catalogue!!! Rose began with Clear Sparkles (Z1752) and coloured them in with a Shin Han Marker (Lavender Z2453).
I’d love to reward you with the Tagged With Love Hostess Rewards Stamp set. Organise a gathering for a couple of friends or bring them along to one of my events and I’ll help you own this cute set.
The ‘Tagged With Love’ Hostess rewards stamp can be yours with an order of $200 or more.

Following on from last Thursday’s blog, I decided to make another set of the Snowhaven cards as a gift for my friend who is a bit snowed under with life at the moment to think about Christmas preparations. Having made the cards, I needed a container to present them in.
The My Creations range of chipboard boxes, frames and albums are perfect for gift giving. I daubed around the edges of my box in Glacier ink and then cut paper panels to fit to top and sides of the box. Add some left over embellishments from the card kit and my favourite sentiment and it was done in less than an hour. The current boxes (Z1953) are just $8.00 and look slightly different to this as the lid is on the narrow edge and cards slide into it vertically. This makes it much easier to find the card you want.
My husband is re-turning 21 tomorrow. Seems like only yesterday he returned 21 last year! I am excited to celebrate with him and our family but I’m also excited to have a reason to play with my NEW stamp set, Hoppy Birthday (D1597). This is one of 5 sets of stamps released EXCLUSIVELY for Australia and New Zealand by Close To My Heart. You can view all 5 sets by clicking here.
I have a small gift for him… something he really wants but it’s just the one gift. I wanted to make it look a bit special so decided to make my own gift wrap with a matching card. I used a sheet of good quality copy paper as my base and wrapped the present so I could see the crease lines. This meant I could centre the feature stamps on the top of the package when it is wrapped.
I only coloured the one image on the top of the package so it really stands out. I left the rest as outlines.
My card was super quick to make using strips of washi tape and a triple mount for the stamped image. Another couple of stamps on the envelope and the gift looks fab. Have some fun with this idea – it would work nicely on plain gift bags too.
