Over the past week or so I’ve shared with you the little gift I created for Kathy who signed up to be a SU! Demo. I don’t do all my gifts the same as I like to create individually for each one.
Today, I am sharing with you, the Gift Bag created to house those gifts including the card created to go with them. I created this bag a long time ago & have always loved it.
Again, I’ve used the gorgeous “Falling in Love” DSP from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I’ve kept it very simple as I wanted the DSP to be the showcase.
I used Soft Sky CS for the base of the bag. A piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS was embossed with the lovely Falling Petals EF before being adhered to the bottom part of the Bag, while a piece of the DSP was adhered to the top. The handle has been created from a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.
I stamped “Just for You” from “So In Love” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, die cut the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits & adhered to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS which had been die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits & adhered to the bag where it opened.
The 2 Butterflies were punched from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Bitty Butterfly Punch & the Elegant Butterfly Punch before being adhering to the bag.
You may remember seeing a couple of projects I had created for Kathy last week as part of her welcome to the team when she signed up to become a new SU! Demonstrator. You can see the previous items here & here.
Well, today is the Notebook I covered for her. I am loving the final result of the book considering I wasn’t sure how it was going to end up looking like.
I covered the back & spine of the Notebook with Soft Sky CS & the front with a piece of “Falling in Love” DSP. I then die cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS with the “So Detailed” Thinlits which is part of the “So in Love” Bundle, page 52 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
This was cut back to size & adhered to the front of the Notebook. I decided the book needed a Bookmark, so I adhered a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon down the side.
Still not happy with it, I then decided to add Kathy’s name to the front. I die cut her name from the Little Letters Framelits (retired), 3 times in Very Vanilla CS as I wanted her name to pop. I adhered all the letters onto each other with the top letters being a little off centre. They were then adhered across the Die. The book seemed to come alive.
To finish it off, I punched a small butterfly from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Itty Bitty Punch & adhered it to the top of the Notebook.
Pop back in a couple of days time & I’ll show you what I created to hold everything.
A part of the small gift I posted off to Kathy (new Downline), were Post-It Notes which I thought would be very handy for her.
Again, I’ve used the lovely “Falling in Love” DSP but teamed it up with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum which was embossed with the “Falling Petals” EF & is part of the “Falling in Love” Suite, Page 51. The base of the Holder is Soft Sky.
I also punched a Butterfly from the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper with the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

My card today is one I created for Kathy, a new Downline who signed up about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I decided to create a small gift for her which included a card using some of the lovely product from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Welcome to the team Kathy!
After creating the card I also realised that it went in with one of our challenges. Don’t you love it when that happens?
It’s a simple card but one showcasing the lovely “Falling in Love” DSP, page 51 & the fantastic “That’s the Tag” Bundle which includes “That’s the Tag” Stamp Set & “Timeless Tags” Thinlits, page 23.
