Gossamer Blue January Blog Hop

January 15, 2016

Hi everyone! It is blog hop day over at Gossamer Blue and today I am sharing these little envelopes I made.

We got some really gorgeous paper in this month's kits and while on Pinterest, I came across a tutorial for these envelopes. There are many tutorials for these and, the best part, they are super easy!

I thought about leaving them blank but they were just asking to be embellished! I decided to use some Heidi Swapp products and I love how they turned out!

For the enclosure, I used the buttons which were included in the Main Add-on kit as well as some embroidery thread which came from my stash. I popped the buttons up on a piece of foam tape so I could wrap the thread around it and then I was done! 
These are a super quick and adorable project! You can add photos, notes, maybe even other embellishments in them and give them to other people.

I hope you like these quick and easy envelopes and I will see you next time! Be sure to check out everyone else's posts for the GB blog hop!

Gossamer Blue - January Reveal

January 01, 2016

Happy New Year everyone!! I cannot believe we are already in 2016! I hope this year brings all of you health and happiness!

Today is also reveal day for the January GB kits and I must say, these kits are definitely my favorite so far! Today I have a few cute and colorful projects I created with these kits and I'm very excited to share!

First off, I created a couple of cards with the Main kit and the Life Pages kit.
This shaker card didn't turn out how I expected, like a lot of things I create, but I really love it! I planned on using the other side of this paper which was red with white hearts but I liked the more subtle pattern so I decided to go with that. I cut the paper to an A2 card size (5.5x4.25) and used a circle die to cut a circle in the middle.
