Grab N' Go Gift set - PTI November Blog Hop 69

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, November 25, 2009 @ 3:00 PM | , , , , ,

Hi Ladies! It's that time again for the monthly Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month, Nichole challenged us to create "a quick & inexpensive wrap or tag that can be the perfect solution for "grab & go" gifts!" If you are no stranger to my blog, you know by now I ABSOLUTELY love the PTI My Timeless Templates designed by the AMAZINGLY talented Lauren Meader. However, when I think of Grab N' Go, my Cricut machine comes immediately to mind! Just push the button & voila! MAJIC you have a completely cut template to score, tape & adorn with your favorite stamps, embellishments & a tag! In case you haven't heard the news, Lauren has spread her wings & will be offering her NEW templates in ALL the various electronic cutting formats :) If you would like to see a YouTube video tutorial that I made on how to create one of these gift bags using your Cricut machine, here is the link http://cupcakescreations.blogspot.com/2009/05/mothers-day-gift-bag-tutorial-and-video.html or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V0VF-cmqjs&feature=player_embedded#
I LOVE to make gift sets so I made a coordinating card using Beate's fun sketch for this week's Weekend Sketch Challenge #107, WSC107 & a tag with a few dangling ornaments inspired by the SUPER talented Betsy Veldman. If you are interesed, here is the link to Betsy Veldman's Ornament Tutorial using PTI ornament stamps. Thanks for hopping by! I can't wait to see what everyone has created!

Here is my Grab N' Go Gift set:I gave my Gift bag & snowflake embellies a vintagey look by sponging on a little Ranger/Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink. Inking up the various sized PTI Snowflake images from the Snowflake Serenade set with Versamark ink, I stamped then embossed them using Filigree embossing powder.
This isn't your typical gift tag! With a close-up look, you can see that the snowflake tag is 3-D!
Here is the coordinating card:
All the snowflake embellishments were made using Martha Stewart's snowflake punches x 3 & layered x 2! I finished each flake off by putting a Making Memories pink crystal brad in the center of each.
Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Snowflake Serenade, Signature Christmas, SU Delightful Decorations Paper: PTI Kraft, Bazzill Pomegranate & Pink, October Afternoon DP, SU Very Vanilla Ink: SU Basic Black, Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink, Ranger/Tim Holtz Tea Dye, VersaMark Sprinkles: Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge, Sizzix 3-D Snowflake die, Martha Stewart snowflake punches x 3, Making Memories hardware, Cuttlebug EF, SU Ornament punch & cord, generic beads, Offray ribbon, Filigree embossing powder
