Crate Paper | Hey Pumpkin | Gift Totes


Welcome to my blog and two projects featuring the spooky and cute Hey Pumpkin Collection from Crate Paper. I've got two fancy Halloween gift totes to show you today. When it's time for "Trick or Treat", it's nice to have some sweets at hand and also a special packaging to give away to the kids. I made two gift totes from the patterned papers 'Eeek!' and 'Beware' from the Hey Pumpkin Collection. Let's have a look at the Halloween gift totes:








And now hop on over to the Crate Paper blog to find out more about the two projects. Have a wonderful day, yours Sandra :).

Crate Paper | Halloween gift totes, decorated frames and spooky envelope


Welcome to my blog today. I'm sharing some cute and whimsical Halloween gift totes, two decorated frames and a spooky envelope that I created with the cute Hey Pumpkin Collection from Crate Paper.
Let's have a look at the projects:

Gift Totes


The gift totes are perfect for candies and sweets and I'm sure the kids will LOVE the whimsical look and fell of the totes. The gift totes are decorated with a variety of stickers and puffy stickers from Hey Pumpkin.














Decorated Frames


I used a frame cut-file and decorated the inside of the frames with cute embellies from Hey Pumpkin. The frames are nice decorative pieces to put on a shelf during Halloween. And I LOVE all the cuteness inside the frames. Aren't those stickers and die-cut pieces adorable?!






Spooky Envelope


The final project is a spooky envelope. I cut two patterned papers from Hey Pumpkin. Then I glued the papers together with double-sided tape. I added a notch at the top with a circle punch. And I used my sewing machine to add stitched lines along the edges. The center piece is a shirt that I cut from a really 'Halloweenish' patterned paper.








I hope you like my inspiration with Hey Pumpkin. I will share some more projects with Hey Pumpkin later this month. So stay tuned and come back to my blog soon :). Have a wonderful day, yours Sandra.




Felicity Jane | Adorable Gift Boxes with Rebekah October Kit




Felicity Jane | Adorable Gift Boxes with Rebekah October Kit


I created three adorable gift boxes with the Rebekah October Kit from Felicity Jane. The gift boxes hold a variety of handmade journaling cards. As a special feature, I used the polka dot tissue paper that comes with all Felicity Jane Kits to wrap the journaling cards. I just cut pieces from the tissue paper to fit inside the boxes :). Neat, isn't it?!

The gift boxes are great for giving vouchers as a birthday present: an invitation to lunch, spending time together on a sight-seeing tour, taking dancing lessons, etc. The handmade boxes are the perfect way to make special gifts.

Let's take a look at the boxes now:






  • TIP: Decorate the cover of your boxes with die cut shapes from Rebekah. You can also use doilies to create more texture:






  • TIP: Try and use the tissue paper from the kit to wrap your journaling cards in a stylish way:








  • TIP: Decorate your journaling cards with the vellum hearts from Rebekah and write messages onto the back of the cards, e.g. "let's take dancing lessons" or "let's go on a long walk and talk about our plans", etc.






I'm sure the gift boxes will make people smile. And they are precious, because you took the time to create them for someone special.

Crate Paper | Hello Fall | Decorative Leaves




Crate Paper | Hello Fall | Decorative Leaves


Today I'm sharing a collection of handmade decorative fall leaves on the Crate Paper Blog. The leaves are great if you want to add that special handmade something to cards, plant pots or presents.
Let's have a look at the projects:



To make the leaves, I used patterned paper from the Heritage Collection, acetate foil, and transparent paper. And I added a variety of embellishments: chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, stickers, alphabet stickers, paper flowers, and sequins. As a special detail, I sewed lines onto the leaves with my sewing machine.
