Along with today's CHA Crate booth projects, you'll notice a new CP Gal from our 2015 Design Team. Even though we have not yet officially disclosed the talented team, we are elated to have Jennifer joining us! Her Kiss Kiss makings are ADORABLE!
Jennifer Chapin: I was so excited to be able to make projects for the Crate Paper booth at CHA with the new Kiss Kiss collection. This collection is so fabulous for many reasons, but it is especially perfect for Valentine cards and gifts. I love the soft color palette and the florals and hearts are beautifully modern and trendy.
I started by making an altered frame. The white frame was purchased at Ikea and the clear acetate removed from the center. I then created some mini pages using patterned paper, chipboard embellishments, die cuts and stickers from the collection. I used two jump rings to attach the mini to the frame. This could be easily duplicated for any theme and would also be great as a calendar.
I created a few treat bags using Kiss Kiss as well. This is one of my favorite things to do. I love pulling doilies, tags and clips together to create a customized gift for a special someone. The beautiful glitter clips are from the new Craft Market collection. These bags can be filled with chocolates or homemade cookies.
Next up, a few cards! 6 x 6 paper pads are perfect for these. For the first card, I used the star background paper and added some stitching around the edge. I pulled hearts together from chipboard, die cuts and stickers and scattered them across the front. I added a few sequins for a finishing touch. I also created a sequin pocket card using some vellum. This is so easy to do with your sewing machine! I sew three edges of the pocket, then pour in my sequins and stitch the final edge shut. After tying on a piece of twine and embellishing with a few bits, the card was complete.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Be sure to come back on Monday for more CHA inspiration from another new CP Gal!
