Hey guys! It’s all about love and Valentine’s Day here today! As promised, here is my very first scrapbook page! (Eeeek!!!) I used the Hello Love collection by Crate Paper from the Gossamer Blue add on kit in January. I die cut little white flowers using Maggie Holmes Confetti leaf dies and Papertrey Ink Circle Scribble dies. I also stamped light leaves here and there using PTI Beautiful Brushstrokes set.

So this being my first scrapbook layout, I learned a lot! I know what I would do differently in the future for another layout, and new things I think I will try. πŸ™‚ I guess I am going to have to keep trying this out!! Here are a few Valentine’s treat boxes I made with the same kit too:

My goodness I truly love this collection. Way to go, Crate Paper… you have done it again!! I can’t wait to give these to some great teacher’s at my kids’ school on Valentine’s Day. Have a wonderful day my friends! Happy crafting!

Hi and welcome!! Today I have a few very easy and simple gift wrapping ideas for you. All I used was kraft wrapping paper, paper doilies, natural twine, and gift tags made out of pattern paper and cardstock. Here are the photos:

I mixed and matched cutout tags (tip: save the negatives and adhere them to tags as well for even more variety). Alternate between tying the twine into bows and knots, using one string or multiple wraps of string as well. And don’t be afraid to use your stamps! I stamped the β€œj” above but you can use any stamp! You could even make a pattern all over your kraft wrapping paper on smaller gifts to get even more out of your gift wrap. Another fun fact about these ideas? They can easily be stacked without damaging ribbons! Take a peek:

These ideas are just the beginning. You can do almost anything with your kraft wrapping paper and it looks so festive! The best part? These ideas are SIMPLE, easy, and super cheap! Give it a try this holiday season if you have any gifts left to wrap (like me!).

Have a Merry Christmas and I will be back on the 31st! πŸ™‚

Happy Wrapping!

Stephanie
