A Sign for Mom and A Layout for Ryan...making a couple of gifts for the ones I love! | Crate Paper

Hi there you fantabulously scrappy, happy people!!! I want to share with you a couple of things that I made using some awesome Crate Paper goodies to create some gifts for people that I love! I actually made these two scrap-tastic pieces in a live stream on my You Tube channel, Fairytale Scrapbook! And I had so much fun doing it! First, I want to share with you a special wall decor sign that I made for my Mom for her birthday!

I made this sign using the Crate Paper Bloom collection by Maggie Holmes! I love this collection so much! Even though it's been out for a while now, I still get excited every time I scrap with it! I am still filled with ideas of things I want to make with it! And I had been thinking about making a cute decorative wall hanging piece like this with the Bloom collection for a while now! My mom's birthday seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. I started with a kind of box thing that my hubby made me out of wood and we painted it white with black chalk paint in the middle/inside. This is so that I could use chalk to draw on it...which I did!

I used the beautiful Maggie Holmes Bloom patterned papers to make the fringed word MOM with a heart in the middle!!! I think it came out so cute! I really hope my mom likes it! I added a picture of me and my mom hugging, and some fun embellishments like the rubber shapes and chipboard stickers to add depth!

So for the second project/gift that I worked on during my live stream...I wanted to make something cute for Ryan...just to say I love you! It's not his birthday or anything but he has been helping me out so much lately and really being supportive with all my scrapbooking stuff so I thought I would make him a layout. I am planning on framing it later (once I find a cool like shadowbox kind of frame or something to put it in).

I made the layout using the Bloom collection too but with some fun pops of goodies here and there from the Little You collection as well. As you can see, I used one of the cool bow stamps in the Bloom collection to stamp on some different colored patterned paper and create little fluttery bows that are scattered here and there across my layout...they pop up to add dimension! I love those and I love the paperclips at the top of the page...especially that Little You decorative star paperclip that just adds a sweet, adorable touch to the layout. And the "Madly" spelled out on the page is perfect I think for my title! For that I used the thickers from Little You in the pink! 

Ok, well I hope you like my gifts and that I have inspired you to use some Crate Paper today and create a fun gift or gifts for your loved ones!!! (P.s. I will try to get the livestream of me making these up soon) ....oh (P.P.S. If you are wondering, the silohuette cut words in the two gifts "hello" and "love" are ones that I designed and cut out of glitter paper). :-)
