I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children.
My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)
I can share what I made for my Secret Santa Swap. I didn't want to spoil the surprise so I had to wait...I had a lot of fun with this swap. My recipient was a friend of mine...I tried to do as much as i could to fulfill her questionnaire. She likes purple, wanted a brag book, and liked embellishments, so....here is what I created to give her...
I fell in love with this brag book. It is a paper bag album with double tags in each pocket. I used the remainder of a stack pack, some handmade papers and lots of fun embellishments: flowers, flocked stickers, jewels, pearls, velvet butterflies, etc. I kept the color palette simple...white, black and purple. I decorated the front with her initial cut on my Cricut from glitter card stock. I hope she likes filling it as much as I liked creating it!
Then I made this recipe card tin. She has been participating in our recipe card swap on the FB group, so...I kept it simple as I could not remember her kitchen color palette. the stickers are from Martha Stewart and the papers were from my scrap basket.
To mail her gift, I put the mini album in the tin and then added embellishments and Stickles I had purchased for her. I also added a simple set of cards I had made.
