Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
Some lovely crafty things to share with you today, Bags, ATC's and shopping!!!
Danielle has been making some beautiful Gift bags this week, she first saw the idea on a channel called Mixed Crafts, that bag took two sheets 12 X 12, Danni has worked her magic though and now you only need 1 sheet, (oh that sounds like kitchen roll advert)!
Luckily for us Danielle has done a YouTube Tutorial for these bags, I will leave the link below, I love the idea of making a card for someone and having a matching gift bag to go with it.

Thank you Danielle for allowing me to share your lovely bags with everyone on the blog. xxx
How amazing is Janet's first ever attempt at a Memory Book, Janet I absolutely love it, all of the detail you have included, little pockets, a Waterfall card feature that you can add photos too, that beautiful die cut clock, you could set the hands to a significant time of an event, birth, marriage etc. So many little finishing touches too, like the little flower on the flap of the envelope. That fan is just exquisite, so pretty, I love the gilding flakes behind the die cutting too, it tones beautifully with the facing page.
You must be so pleased with your first attempt Janet, its stunning, I bet you have got the bug now, I hope we get to see many more.
Thank you so much for sharing it with us xxxx
Who is as excited as I am that Karen received this gorgeous Kerry Lord 'Edwards Menagerie' Dogs??? I can't wait to see your Crocheted versions of these pooches!!
Oscar sure knows how to pick great gifts!
Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us Karen xxxx
Lynda has finished her ATC's and has shared them with us, two amazing examples, one simply coloured, looks stunning in what looks like metallic shades. The second one is a real example of Lynda's work, which is what the ATC is all about, showcasing your particular style of art. What is more Lynda than a magnificent Mixed Media piece. I think that mixing the harsh metals with the soft delicate flowers is an amazing idea, that works perfectly.
Thank you so much for sharing your ATC Lynda. xxxx
I think that Cheryl's ATC is also a true reflection of her card making style too, with that pretty tag and the beautifully decorated pocket for it to go in.
Thank you Cheryl for bringing us this challenge and for sharing your beautiful design. xxxx
Michele treated herself to a well deserved treat yesterday, (the magazine), I think that if you are doing the Food Shopping on your own in Tesco you deserve a treat, you have also had a 'f'ull on' week at work. The magazine was £9.99, which is an amazing price when you think regular craft magazines are around the £6 -£7 mark, you usually get 1 die with those, this one has 5, all really useful Christmas dies too. I thought that it was a new magazine but Michele says its issue 38 of the Make It Today magazine (in case any of you would like a copy). I am looking forward to seeing what you make with the dies Michele.
Now a Michele shopping haul would not be a 'Michele' shopping haul if it didn't have a bargain of some description, The All Occasion Dies were......half price with FREE postage!! It would have been rude to leave them Michele !!
Thank you so much for sharing your crafty buys with us Michele, now go find yourself a quiet spot, get your magazine and relax! That's an order!! xxx
Thank you to all of you that took part in today's post, I spent most of yesterday under the stairs, no I wasn't hiding, I was looking for some particular craft papers that I bought a while ago, in truth it needed sorting, so it is still spread over the hallway and I didn't find the papers, my Cutterpillar Pro is missing too, I wanted to use that to cut a few sheets at once into 6 x 6 for my Onstage Swaps, my guess is that it is in the garage! Fat chance of seeing that anytime soon!!
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all
