A set of beautiful cards is a perfect (and useful!) handmade gift for a non-scrapper. Kim says that by using a Collection Kit it makes it super easy to put together this beautiful set of cards that co-ordinate yet all retain their own individual style. Prima flowers and soft seam binding ribbon are the perfect finishing touches.
We loved this idea by Corrie Jones. She has used American Crafts patterned papers and embellishments to create a whole little recipe book – a perfect idea for a cooking-loving friend.
Jewellery-making is a far cry from scrapbooking, and yet the talented Gudrun Loennecken brings the two together with this stunning gift idea, made from paper beads. She has created a whole tutorial here on the Cosmo Cricket blog.
We found more jewellery and hair accessory ideas on the BasicGrey blog using some of their new Notions line. Pretty and thoughtful gifts that need not take a whole lot of time or expense to create.
We are so excited to be sharing another gorgeous Basic Grey Sampler with you today. This one was created by Amy Friend and would look just delightful as a piece of wall art in any home or office. Amy has written detailed instructions here on how to create this stunning canvas. Thank you for sharing Amy.
We just adore this Seed Packet Pocket Book by Vanessa Menhorn. Here are a few words from Vanessa about the pocket book. "Wouldn't this be a perfect gift for a friend with a garden? I used papers from the Echo Park Victoria Gardens and Happy Days Collections here. The butterflies and flower images are stamped and colored with Copics. The pocket book is so versatile, you could make it a recipe book, a tag book, a coupon holder - it's up to you!"
You can see how Vanessa created this fabulous pocket book here. Thank you for showing us a wonderful gift idea Vanessa.
