Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap with Susie!

Hello crafters! Susie here today with an idea to make your gift-giving more beautiful and economical!

I recently attended a baby shower and spent way too much money on the gift bag and card! It occurred to me that I have tons of scrapbook paper that I bought because I love the colors and designs.

Why not use them to create my own gift ensembles? I purchased a plain white gift bag at a local craft store for about a dollar. I covered the front of it with a piece of paper from the Dusty Road collection. I added a contrasting strip across the top, using an edge punch along the bottom. I inked the edges with Green With Envy PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
Bag measures 10" x 12.5"
Quick Quotes offers 3" x 4" Quote Cards on bright white cardstock in a variety of themes. I went through the Sentiments pack and found one with the image of a cute little cupcake.

I used PowderPuff Chalking Inks to water color the image before I trimmed it out.

Quick Quotes also offers cardstock and vellum quotes which are packaged by theme.  I explored the Sentiments Bundle and found a set of journal cards. I trimmed out one and inked the edges with Plum Crazy PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I cut a tag out of Dusty Road paper and layered on all my elements. I started with a "Happy Birthday" vellum from the Sentiments Itty Bitty Vellum Box Set.   The finishing touch was bling from Want2Scrap.

I used the beautiful Heartfelt Bling Brackets to frame the birthday wish.  The cupcake is dotted with 2.5mm Baby Bling rhinestones - love that they are self-adhesive! I plan to use the journal tag to personalize the gift when it is time for giving!

Take a look at your scrapbook collections with new eyes.  Those beautiful designs are perfect for creating customized gift-giving ensembles!
