Gift Bags

September 30 is the last day to enter my giveaway.  Click here to find out how to enter.

As mentioned in my last post, I had a great time paper crafting with my friend Pamela last Saturday.  These bags are not related (though they did go to 2 members of the same family), but I decided to post them together.  How many bags can one person see anyway?

The first bag held a little treat for my friend Kathy.  It coordinates perfectly with the card that I made for her and posted earlier.  I used the same papers.  (BTW - I found out that the swirly teal paper was from My Little Shoebox).

I started with the same papers used on the card.  I then added a black doily and a white one from the Owl and Thistle Etsy shop.  More Prima "Say it with pearls" bling added a special touch.  I then used the dress form stamp from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 "Blush" stamp set and stamped it in Ranger Archival black ink on PTI Vintage Cream card stock.  The finishing touch was the Antique White crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM (click here to find this pretty ribbon).

The second bag was for a pretty little lady named Lucy.  I had planned to make her a mini album more than a year ago and finally finished it last Saturday (Coming soon!).

Now I must admit that I normally wouldn't have put all these colors together.  It just kind of happened.  I started by going through my scrap stash where I found this scrap of printed paper from the Teresa Collins Baby Boutique Imagine cartridge.  I then found another pink scrap and a cute pink and yellow paper from the DCWV Nana's Kids matstack.  I believe the letters are some that I've had for years from Hot Off the Press, but I'm not really sure.  The little dress was a cardboard die cut from my Cropped Event kit.  I used lime-colored Stickles to add some sparkle.  The bow was made from some ribbon I found in my stash.

So that finishes up a couple of more things I made last weekend.  I have 2 more projects, one of which is completely unlike anything that I've ever made.  Keep checking back, but until then...

Take time to enjoy the little things!
