Having fun with Scaredy Cat and Seaside Papers from CTMH

Welcome

Just a very quick post today as I really should be working on my new website for Gift Hutt, but I am now in a routine with this blog.

Here are a couple more boxes that I have made as gift baskets to sell in Gift Hutt.  One of the new arrivals into the shop was this lovely bright orange bib and I instantly thought of Scaredy Cat papers and also the lovely foxes on the Artfully Sent cartridge.

I had some fun decorating the boxes and used the gorgeous foxes from the Artfully Sent cartridge and cut them in a combination of Sunset, Black and Thistle cardstock, and added a little Thistle chevron ribbon to link with the Thistle cardstock and the patterned paper from the Scaredy Cat range.

Then sentiment Cherish has come from the Artbooking cartridge.

Here is the box with the bib and a lovely moulded soap in the shape of pig and teddy bear to make a lovely gift for a baby shower or a new arrival.

I also made a little 3″ x 3″ card out of Kraft cardstock as I didn’t have that colour combination in store.  The tag is from the Tagged with Love stamp set from the new Seasonal Expressions 2 catalogue and it is a lovely and versatile set and perfect for baby boxes.

Materials used:

Cardstock – Sunset, Thistle, Black, Kraft

Papers – Scaredy Cat

Stamp Set – Tagged with Love

Inks – Thistle, Black

Ribbon – Thistle chevron

Shimmer Trim – Purple

Cricut Cartridges – Artbooking, Artfully Sent

The Seaside papers in combination with some Blossom papers also make a lovely baby themed box.  Here I have used the gorgeous spotted papers and distressed them with some Desert sand ink to make it look aged, and I have then added a strip and ribbon from the new Blossom range to make it look like a gift box.  Again I have added a tag tied with the lovely Glacier extra thick twine.  The pram has been cut using a Memory Box die that I have had for some time.
