Therm O Web and Simple Stories are joining forces this week to bring you a ton of inspiration for last-minute Mother’s Day gift ideas. We’ve got lots of beautiful projects to share, and of course there are great prizes up for grabs. We’ll be giving away a collection pack of the gorgeous Vintage Bliss line, along with some amazing Therm O Web adhesive, of course. Be sure to visit both blogs for more details.
Words simply cannot describe how happy the Vintage Bliss collection makes me. The sweet prints and soft color combo with a modern vintage twist are sooo up my shabby little alley. So of course I had an absolute ball creating this fun little gift set for Mother’s Day. There’s a pretty card for mom, and a giftie pocket pouch, too.
The card is lots of layers of my favorite patterns from the 12×12 Collection pack, mixed with matching cardstock stickers and rustic trims. I threw in some of my new Sizzix dies, as well. Created an unusual reverse-scallop border using the negative of the interlocking ovals decorative border strip die along the right side. I do so have a hard time letting anything go to waste. I played with negative space with the tags, too.
The pocket pouch can be filled with all sorts of sweets for mom. And you can easily adapt the size of your pocket to fit a variety of treats and customize it to perfectly suit your theme. Does Mom love coffee or tea, sweets or candy? How about filling this pouch with seed packets for a mom who loves to garden. Or bath and body products to pamper mom. The possibilities are endless.
I’ve got the full step-by-step directions for creating this gift pouch on the Therm O Web blog, if you’re interested in taking a peek.
Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends! It’s still rainy and gloomy here, but on a bright note……I just realized this is my 1,000th blog post. Phew! That’s a lot of yacking!
