Creative Crew November Challenge - Creative Focus

CCREW1113CF - Creative Focus: show us something with the Pretty Packages line on pages 158 and 159 of the main catty or any of the kits or packages in the mini catty.

The packaging kits in the catalogue caught my eye very early on, so it was great to have an excuse to have to get some! I bought the gift boxes and tags bundle, which give you such a great head start that you need only worry about stamping and a couple of other embellishments.

As it is Spring here and we are heading into a hot Summer, I went with a bright and cheerful colour combo - crushed curry and rich razzleberry. Here's my package:

I used the crushed curry flag and ticket shapes from the set and added another layer with a razzleberry chalk talk die shape. The curry bakers twine is also from the set and I used some razzleberry wide striped ribbon and a very old glitter brad to hold it into a bow. Sentiment from Chalk Talk and lots of dimensionals to make layers. They all set off the cheerful polka dot dsp perfectly! 

Materials used:
  • stamps - Chalk Talk
  • card - crushed curry, rich razzleberry, whisper white, Polka Dot dsp
  • other - rich razzleberry wide striped ribbon, brad, Big Shot, chalk talk dies, Tag a Box Bundle p159 AC

If you've been on the fence about any of the packaging products, I can now heartily recommend them - your gift packaging will easily become something really special.

Thanks for stopping by.
