Thank You From all of Us

Hey crafty friends!! Today is my very last post as a member of the Jaded Blossom Design Team.... I am super sad and have had such a great time as part of this awesome team!! I will continue to stalk the JB girls to see what great things they continue to come out with!! Thanks for being so great for the past year! 

Today I have a really fun, bright Thank You card to share! 

The new Kind Thanks stamp set is my new favorite and I can tell I am going to use it so much. It has the perfect Thank You sentiment for any occasion! 

I used some die cut flowers from Doodlebug to design my own flowers and adhered them together using pop dots to create fun dimension. 

This card is going to be for the teacher of my daughter's Playschool class and I love that this sentiment includes "from all of us". It's so hard to find a sentiment that works for a group of people! 

Check out the Kind Thanks stamp set in the store HERE and the sequins I used HERE

I hope you were inspired by my card today! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sugar Shoppe Happy Birthday

Hey crafty friends! I don't know about you, but I feel like it is always someone's birthday. I can never keep enough cards and gift bags on hand. I love to make a statement with my cards and bags and I knew creating with the Sugar Shoppe collection would definitely make a statement. 

Shaker cards are all the rage right now and the gorgeous Doodlebug sequins work perfectly inside! I love that the bottles of sequins have so many different shades and finishes, making it easy to choose the ones that perfectly match my projects. 

I used some foam tape (two layers) to make room for the sequins in between my cake sticker and plastic acetate layer.

The colors in this collection are to die for!! So trendy, bright and fun! 

I took a plain white gift bag and added some patterned paper and used some stickers and sequins to embellish. 

To add dimension and interest to my bag, I made a rosette from patterned paper and layered a sticker over top using a foam sticker. 

A drape of stitched garland along the top of my bag was the perfect finishing touch! 

I am sure whoever I decide to give this too is going to be more in love with the packaging than the actual gift! I am so in love with the Sugar Shoppe Collection and cannot wait to create more projects with it! Definitely one of my favorites from Doodlebug!
