Print Candee Blog Hop – April

Hey there! I'm back with another Print Candee Blog Hop! This month's theme is Mother's Day to get us sharing ideas for the holiday next month. I went for a gift bag design using a combination of Photoshop brushes and clip art. 




Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper

Patterned paper: Kaisercraft

Butterfly clip art: Adrienne Looman Designs via Print Candee

Vintage banner brush: Adrienne Looman Designs via Print Candee

Floral frame brush: Adrienne Looman Designs via Print Candee


To create my sentiment, I created a path in Photoshop over top of the scroll brush and then typed along the path. Curving a thin sentiment stamp would work well for this too. I went for a non-traditional, more whimsical color scheme for this project. I just wanted something springy with a lot of character.

Now get hopping to my fellow Print Candee Creative Team members (oh how I love these gals – their work is fantastic and they're all so sweet!):

And what would a Blog Hop be without a fun prize? We've got 2 $10 Print Candee gift certificates to give away to someone who comments! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Gorgeous bag, Kalyn! I was admiring these brushes the other day…I love how you enlarged the frame and scroll. The colors are gorgeous, too! So now I’m curious about the path…I always use the “warped text” but it doesn’t always do I what I need. I may be e-mailing you! 🙂

    Hey I recognize that butterfly…. isn’t it such a beautiful set! Speaking of beautiful, your gift bag is A-MaZing Kalyn, LoVe those papers and fab sentiment panel!!
    Now, when we come to the word ‘path’ and you’re starting to scare me, would love a tutorial on this if you could find some time (wink).

    This is lovely! I love the pattern on the butterfly. Great combination of the scroll banner and the frame and the butterfly. Just lovely!
