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!


very pretty bags!! Love the desing!! Hope you are having a great weekend!
