Quick gift packaging using Pink By Design Stamps

Well we have hit wednesday and I am in the midst of the great move of  2011!  I never realized how much stuff I had--and to pack the scrap room has been a crazy experiance.  I have come to the realization that my collection of scrap items is so big I could open my own store!  Sort of sad in a funny way--
So i opened my mail box the other day and I got a package from Sarah the Pink Cricut (also the founder and designer for Pink by Design) with my newest release sets for the Design Team.  I know I said it before but this is another must have release--just in time to get started on your holiday cards!

So this fun little package is a clear box from PTI and the paper is CTMH and SEI.  I simply cut two strips for the belly band that were 12" long and a 1/2" difference in width.  I added some atg to the end and wrapped it around after inking the edges. 
I used my spellbinders to cut the layerd shape.  The bottom layer is solid brown and I sent it through the cuttlebug to add texture.  I used a folder from the Asian theme set.  I inked the edges here as well.  This oh so wonderful vintage fall wreath is from one of the set that is going to be released soon.  I simply stamped the image on cream card stock in brown ink. 

 The pattern SEI paper had pine cones and is also glittered so I thought about how I can add some pop, I found these tiny pearls in red in my horde of supplies and thought --hello holly berries!  Simple but elegent--just my style.  This whole project only took about 10 minutes.  I also added a scrap of red ribbon around the middle of the notes and attached them together using pop dots. 

Make sure you check out the Pink By Design Blog where the uber talented design team post a new project every day!!!

Make it a great one-


  1. That is so beautiful Bryan. I love the papers and stamp. We haven't even had summer and now it's time to make Christmas cards!

  2. Very festive and quite elegant Bryan! I'm not usually a "brown" person, but this works!
