Hi everyone! I'm sorry for the sporadic posting lately....truthfully, I've had a rough little spell and am doing my best to pull myself up and out. We all have our moments, our ups and downs, joys and sorrows...some a little more difficult to deal with than others. It's Spring Break here and we're taking things nice and easy. Today I have a fun idea for you, minus the tutorial, but something you could very easily whip up on your own. As you've probably gathered by now, tutorials are a rarity for me as it seems I don't have the time to prepare them, but hopefully you'll be able to grasp what this little project embodies and create your own.
My mom and I are always sharing our crafting supplies. She often slips a few of her latest findings in the mail to me and I love to surprise her with a fat envelope full of treats once in a while as well. This project just makes the gift-giving part of a crafty care package even more fun. I've taken 3 A2 Kraft envelopes from Papertrey Ink and stitched them together across the bottom edge. I've lined each one with coordinating patterned paper using the A2 Envelope Liner from Papertrey Ink. This is such a fun die....a perfect way to dress up an ordinary envelope very simply.
I've stuffed each envelope with things I love such as: doilies, tea stained fabric, tea stained twill, buttons, trinket pins, die cuts, trims, handmade embellishments, etc.
Papertrey Ink glassine bags are the perfect place to tuck buttons, trinket pins, ribbons, etc.
Anyway, please let me know if you have any questions. I'll get back to you as quickly as I can. The label stickers, dies, and paper are from Pink Paislee. The pretty, tiny rosebud paper used on the last envelope is from GCD Studios.
I love the saying on this Mother's Day card....most definitely close to my heart. It is a Homespun Cotton Scrap from Crafty Secrets Family collection.
The "Mom" stamp is from Papertrey Ink's Tiny Tags stamp set.
The resin heart and die cut ticket are from Melissa Frances.
