Another Guest Design Post for Pebbles!!

Hi everyone! Yesterday my second guest post went up on Pebbles' blog!! Yay!!

I used Jen Hadfield's beautiful Home + Made collection again and here's what I created:

For my first project I decorated the "Home Art Hanger" and created a layout for it.

As I love all the sheets of patterned paper in this collection so very much I wanted to create a layout using lots of those sheets and came up with this design. It includes 8 strips of patterned paper measuring 3"x 6".

I also added a few pieces of the beautiful decorative tape and the large "I Love Us" cut file, which I designed myself and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo. Next came the photo and the other embellishments:

A few detail photos: I used one of the 3"x 3" Minc cards and some puffy phrase stickers. The arrow was cut with the Homemade dieset from one of the mini kraft pocket tags.

And the layout wouldn't be complete without these cute phrase tags, which I adhered using a stapler.

The Art Hanger I painted white and decorated with some patterned paper and a gold foil letter sticker:

I love how easy to use this Art Hanger is. It contains two magnets at the back and you just clip your project in between:

Homemade Puffy Phrase Stickers
Homemade Dies Set
American Crafts Thickers Printed Foil Letter Stickers

And because I hate wasting even a tiny piece of this beautiful collection and because I had so many scraps lying on my desk, I decided to created these 2 super quick and fun gift bags:

Here's the pile of scraps I had left after creating my other projects:

And this is what I got when I grabbed three pieces of paper and a Minc card out of this pile and stapled them together with a phrase tag:

Fun right? Together with a doily from my own stash I adhered them on top of one of the kraft glitter bags and voilĂ , ready to use! (and in case you wonder why I combined "congratulations" and "thank you" - this was made for a colleague who left the office for a new job ... so, thanks for all you've done and congrats on your new job!).

And here's the other of my "one-minute" gift bags:

In less than 5 minutes I got these two beautiful gift bags suitable for any birthday or other occasion!
