Papertrey Ink August Release // Scared Silly + Grins & Ghouls

Welcome to Papertrey Ink’s August New Release! Today we are all about the Halloween goodness! I have so much fun making little goodies for Halloween.

Our family just loves getting dressed up and spending time with friends each year. I always get to volunteer in my kid’s class parties and they loveeeeee trick or treating on the 31st! Today I have 2 fun little party favors to show you using brand new crafty goodies, as well as a spooky card 😉

First up is this classy krafty pillow box. You can stuff it with candy, trinkets, or anything small enough! This is actually one of my favorite previously released box dies. I use this sucker all. the. time.

I stamped the entire box with the “trick or treat” from the new A Bit More: Grins & Ghouls… the size of this sentiment is the BEST. I also stamped the ghost in Soft Stone as another subtle touch.

I kept the colors neutral for this project and loved pairing a couple of the You Deserve Flowers Scalloped Tags in Kraft an Black with a Bitty Big Soft Stone ghost.

This party favor was more geared toward kiddos. I used a bright contrast of celebratory colors in the Green Parakeet Cable Box, Amethyst Allure little monster, and Orange Zest accents.

I used the fun little legs from the monsters to make a creepy border around the outside of the box. I loved how it turned out! And these little monster dudes are so dang cute!! I’m obsessed.

For the tag I used the previously released Folded Tag Dies with the Bitty Big True Black.

And my last project is this adorably fun card! Grins & Ghouls is such a fun set and the sentiments come in the cutest font!

I used eyelets at the top of the card to attach some twine and ribbon and accented the card with both white and black paint splatters. The card base is Smokey Shadow which was the perfect contrast to the orange pumpkin in the center.

Throwback Thursday: Phrase Play #9

Hey all! Today is Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and I am so excited to show you the project I made for today. 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink throwback thursday phrase play 9

I created a card with coordinating gift box using mainly JUST the Phrase Play #9 stamp and die set. By running the die through multiple times in different colors, you create different colored snowflakes and sentiment strips with ease. I went with traditional Christmas colors but you could use any colors you’d like!!

By using the Bitty Big: Soft Stone in the large plaid, I added extra texture and interest in the gift box. And to keep things coordinated, I stamped on the card using the Soft Stone Ink as well.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink throwback thursday phrase play 9

I tried to make it easier to see in this picture but the “greetings” sentiment strip has a background stamped purely in Soft Stone “treats” to tie in the Soft Stone color. I also ran the card base through with the Woodgrain Metal Stencil for added texture on my card.

The “WINTER” sentiment is backed with vellum and popped up with multiple layers of foam tape. The vellum adds just enough fade so you can’t see the adhesive underneath (this helps so you don’t have to get super picky in adhesive placement). 🙂

That’s it for me today!! Do you like putting together coordinating cards and gift boxes?? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. 🙂

Pink Paislee Cedar Lane Card and Gift Set

Goooooooood morning!! How is everyone’s week going? I have been sick all week and I am finally starting to feel a bit better so it’s a good one for me! 🙂 I have a little project for you today that I made for a friend – a Pink Paislee Cedar Lane card and gift set.

by Stephanie Gold - Pink Paislee Cedar Lane card and gift set - Golden Simplicity

I basically wanted to put a gift card into something prettier than simply adding it to the card so I made this adorable pillow box and stuffed it in there instead. 🙂 Everyone loves opening presents, right?! I coordinated the papers and themes for the card and gift so they matched and I think they turned out so cute!!

by Stephanie Gold - Pink Paislee Cedar Lane card and gift set - Golden Simplicity

The card uses Papertrey Ink’s Delicate Details die cut and a punch by Martha Stewart.

by Stephanie Gold - Pink Paislee Cedar Lane card and gift set - Golden Simplicity

The pillow box was created using a die by PTI as well and another Delicate Details die. I snuck in one of the Cedar Lane arrows too… those little guys are too fun!! This is my first time working with Pink Paislee’s Cedar Lane collection, but check out some tags I made with the Pink Paislee C’est La Vie kit here.

Thanks for stopping by!
