Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Thank goodness its Friday, its been a long week this week, not sure why, it has just seemed to drag.
Hopefully yours hasn't been like that, have you managed to get any crafting done? I know a few of you have as I have received your Challenge cards already.
No card today as I decided to make a matching Gift Bag for the card I made yesterday, using the same Peaches & Pinks paper (well card really) on a Kraft card Bag, that I made with a new die that I bought from Craft Stash, Its a bag die that makes an album as well as just a bag, the designer is Helen Griffin. I didn't see any bag samples made with the die but lots of Albums.
I started by cutting my bag out of Kraft card, I then cut a hexagon out of the same card to make a flap for my bag (to tie in with the shape of the card). I added a mat of the Peaches and Pink paper to both the bag front and the Hexagon flap. I decided to edge the bag flap with some delicate crocheted lace and layered another floral lace trim over the top, I chose this particular one as it matched some of the pinks in the paper. I finished the flap off with some matching colour pearls.
I die cut some Petal Pink card with one of the SU Lace Edger dies and brushed some Tea Dye Distress Ink over it, I then added the same lace and trims as I did on the flap and finished with some pearls.
I gathered together some of the same flowers that I used on the card, and arranged them over a Cherry Lynn Flourish die cut, I added some little pearl stamens to add some little bursts of colour.
I stamped a sentiment and die cut it with the central dies from Sue's Lavish Accented Hexagons and then added a few more flowers to balance the look.
I know they are quite 'busy' but I quite like how they look together!! I hope you do too. xxx
Guess what??? Paul had to go up the loft to look for our old Printer and as he turned to come back down the steps he looked up and there was my Cutterpillar Pro, just sat in its box, bold as brass, how he could have missed it is beyond me! I am so happy to have it back though!!
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend, we have a Michele Magazine Review to look forward to tomorrow, so be sure to look in for that.
Love and hugs to all of you,
