Of all the new paper packs this is the one I have used the most. I LOVE it! My favorite part is probably how it can be transitioned from summer to fall, and that is what I wanted to showcase here for you today! I also used the fabulous new burlap ribbon which works so well with this paper pack!
I made three different projects: a summer card with a beachy feel, a back-to-school tag and note that could be given to a teacher to say thanks or to a student feeling a bit nervous, and a treat bag for Thanksgiving or any fall celebration.
For the little card, I stamped the crab and sentiment from Under the Sea in Saddle and then colored it in Sorbet with the blending pen. I slightly inked the edges of the circle and the D&P paper with some Champagne. (I also inked the edges with Champagne on the back-to-school tag and the pumpkin and tag on the treat bag.) I added little googly eyes for fun. Burlap ribbon and a couple of adhesive pearls add the finishing touch and some 3D tape adds dimension.
The back-to-school tag is from the new CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge along with the treat bag. However, I did have to use a hole punch to make the hole bigger on the tag because of the small size I cut it at. The sentiment is from Kudos which comes with the Artiste collection and the little star is from Love Life. The sentiment is stamped in Saddle and the stars are stamped in Creme Brulee. I used left over scraps of the burlap ribbon and 3D foam tape to prop it up. The tiny sparkles on the stars are from the brown and tan assortment which is also new and works great for a more vintage/distressed piece. I tied the tag to the pencils with Creme Brulee baker's twine from the paradise assortment and VOILA!
Last but not least the treat bag. I used liquid glass to assemble it, and I HIGHLY recommend doing this because it makes it so much more durable. The pumpkin is from So Grateful and the tag is from Perfect Fit - Halloween. Sentiments are again stamped in Saddle, the pumpkin and frame are stamped in Sorbet, and the stem and vines are stamped in Cashmere. I fussy cut the pumpkin and used natural hemp to tie on the tag. The bag stays closed with a bit of velcro.
