Wrapping Idea for Gift Cards

Wrapping Gift Cards can be a challenge! 

 I don't want to just throw the gift card in an envelope...that's boring.  Here's a fun easy idea.  Any tag cut will do with your Cricut.  Many of the carts have a tag feature.  For my tags I used my SU Sizzex Two Tags die.  I stamped this Tim Holtz Tall Trees stamp and added a little silver glitter glue for snow.  Then pop a little glue dot on the back of the card so it doesn't slide around.  

I picked up a multi pack of iTunes gift cards and tied the tags together using some bakers twine.

Here is the 2nd tag cut from the tag die.  It's a great tag to stamp "TO: & FROM" which I see I forgot on this one.  Then I added a little silver glitter glue to the swirly bits.

I picked up these brown mini Kraft bags from a packaging store last month, 100 for $4!  I am almost out.  They hold gift cards perfectly and you can stuff a ton in these bags.  I stamped again the Tall Trees stamp, attached the smaller tag with bakers twine and done!  EASY wrap job.

Here are all the gift bags I made for all the teens in my family.  My BIL &SIL are taking 4 of these home for Christmas.  These are small and compact enough to pack!

I'm always looking for new and unique ways to wrap gift cards.  I hope you try this if you are looking for an easy wrapping idea.  These bags and tags take minutes to whip together.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
