This week’s awesomesauce freebie is an oldie but a goodie! Here are some cute mini gift bag templates, provided in layered .psd and .tif files, as well as printable PDF templates! I had plans to make up new samples and take photos because that sample project is super old and made with my second kit ever (read: craptastic kit)… but the week totally got away from me! So, bear with the lame sample on the preview. ;) These fit on a standard letter sized paper. ENJOY! Please remember these are for personal use only. If you are interested in purchasing a limited commercial use license for $3, contact me here. Thanks!

Welcome to week 2 of Freebie Friday awesomeness! :) This week I have a new template for you – a cute mini popcorn cup! These templates are blank and ready for your own designs or scrapbook papers! Here’s an example of them in use (with mine and GG Digital Designs’ Pirate’s Cove Kit) for a pirate themed birthday party… but with these blank templates, you can make them up for any theme you wish! The download includes: a layered template (in .tif and .psd formats) for you digital scrappers and a printable PDF if you’d like to print the template directly onto your own scrapbook papers. Print the template on the BACK of your scrapbook paper to hide the lines. :) Enjoy! PLEASE NOTE: these templates are for personal use only. If you would like to purchase a limited commercial use license, please contact me.

So, a few days ago I hit up my local Dollar Tree and was looking through the Valentine’s Day goodies that were already out. I found these super adorable “debit cards” that are redeemable for things such as pizza for two, a batch of your favorite cookies, an unexpected kiss, etc. They’re like love coupons, but cuter! They had about 4 different sets, so I picked up one set for just a buck (4 cards in the set) and knew exactly what to make my hubby for Valentine’s Day! BONUS: it’s super duper cheap. ;)

Quite possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever found at the dollar store. They are thickĀ  just like real cards, too!

Well I didn’t want to just HAND them to him. No, that would not do. So I took some measurements and went to town in Photoshop to create a paper wallet that I decorated with my digital scrapbook supplies. I used Miss Mint’s fabulous Wild Heart Papers and Elements available for purchase at Peppermint Creative. I am giving you the blank templates, so you’ll have to decorate them yourselves. This allows you to create wallets for any occasion. :)

It has two pockets for the cards (so it can hold up to 4 cards) and a cash pocket as well. I decided I’d throw in a little cash so we can go out for ice cream on Valentine’s Day. But think of all the FUN POSSIBILITIES with this template! You can create a birthday wallet and fill it with little gift cards and cash – a small $5-10 card to their fave fast food, another $5-10 to get ice cream, a card to a local theater so they can see a movie, maybe a card to their fave clothing shop too! So get creative! You can also leave off the second card pocket if you don’t want to come up with 4 gift cards for a gift… but if you happen to find these cute “debit cards” at your dollar store, you’re set. :)

I created layered templates for you digi scrappers and also a printable PDF for you paper scrappers. Click here to download the free templates! Enjoy! I always love seeing what you create with my designs, so please leave a link to your project if you happen to use the template. :)


A few notes:
1. The cash pocket was designed so you can see the cash peeking up above it when you open it up. I did that on purpose… so make sure you glue the cash pocket on low enough to accommodate for that and not have it poke out the top when the wallet is closed (so you won’t see the cash from the front when closed). I didn’t glue mine on low enough so I need to redo mine. So learn from my mistake and have a dollar bill handy so you can mark where to glue your pocket.
2. If using cardstock, make sure you score along the fold lines to make cleaner folds.
3. Once your wallet is assembled and the gift cards are inside, it will have some bulk to it and likely will not stay closed… you can add some ribbon ties to fix that and it’d look super cute!

It’s my birthday month! YAY! And I just had to create a new b-day kit since my shop was lacking in that department. ;) It’s also an awesome excuse to have a big sale. :) Save 40% off my shop (excluding collabs) through 2/18 AND since I’m turning 24, every 24th order will WIN a $24 gift coupon to my shop!! Winners will be emailed within 24 hours with their gift codes. Rock on.


Lots of awesome inspiration from my creative team…


We’ve also got a new set of templates to help you scrap those pages!


And what fun is a birthday party without presents?!? I’ve got a little freebie for you… just in time for those last minute Valentine’s Day projects! A set of take-out boxes using my CU Take-Out Box Templates and my Love Notes kit. There are two different boxes – one is sized to be printed on letter size paper on your home printer and another is sized for 12×12 for large format printers or for those of you (like me) who send their stuff out to print. :) Instructions for assembly are included in the download. ALSO, make sure you keep an eye on my Facebook fan page because within the next few days there will be a FREEBIE template! :)
