Make a Cute Gift Set with Lori Whitlock's Designs

Hi Artsy friends!

Today I want to share a really cute idea for an adorable gift set that you can easily make if you have an electronic cutting machine.  As you know, I'm a huge Silhouette fan.  I use my CAMEO to cut silhouette designs almost everyday and Lori Whitlock's cutting files are my favorites :)

This is a project that I posted for Lori's blog today, so I hope you'll visit her site when you leave here and tell her Traci sent you over!


For this gift set, I cut Lori's adorable penny-slider card first, and added a "Happy Birthday" sentiment to the front.  I then created a little earring card holder from one of Lori's tag sets, and a fun little no-glue gable box to present the gift.  So simple, but I love how  the set turned out.  Of course, colorful paper always helps!  This paper collection is by Echo Park called We Are Family and it's super cute because Lori designed it too!!  (Can you tell I love her stuff?? LOL)



Before you hop over to visit Lori's site, I hope you'll check out my recent additions to the Artsy Albums kit collection.  I've added a new mini album kit and a 12x12 page layout kit to the shop this past week.  You can check them out here: 


Thanks for visiting the blog today!  I hope I've inspired you to create your next gift set using your Silhouette machine or other electronic cutting device!

For links to the cutting files I used in the projects above, please visit Lori Whitlock's blog and find them at the end of today's post.

A Simple Stories Wedding Mini Album Kit

It's that time of year....I hear wedding bells!  and Simple Stories has a new collection called "The Story of Us".  As soon as I saw this wonderful group of silver, gold, black and cream...I knew a wedding mini album was in my future.  I've heard a few friends say, "I wish the papers and embellies had blue...or red...or pink (to match their wedding colors)"....but that's the best part!  These neutral shades will work with almost any color combination.

So here are the details for this wonderful album...available pre-made or as a DIY kit:





28 pages (14 front and back) 
12 full 6x8 scrapbook pages and 16 (8 double-sided) photo sleeve pages 
Space for 50 photos 
The title on the cover says "Our Wedding Day" and other pages say "The Story of Us", 
and "Two Hearts Become One". 
There are journaling cards for recording notes for the following:
Our Engagement
The Proposal
Our Story
First Date
Important Dates To Remember
The Bridal Shower
The Bachelor Party
List for Bridesmaids
List for Groomsmen
The Honeymoon
