Today I have borrowed Patricia's www.patricia-summerhousecrafts.blogspot.co.uk bag idea, after reading her tutorial I though it would be a shame not to give it a try, after all she must have put a lot of work into producing the photographs and placing everything in the right order and writing her instructions, a job well done and well worth the effort. I for one enjoyed reading the tutorial and following the instructions. I made a card to accompany the gift bag. When I cut the handle in the bag I went wrong as I have not got the plain circle die and tried to cut it with a craft knife but it did not work out so I made the semi circle a rectangle but you don't have to copy everything exactly.
Here is my effort
For the card
6 x 6 white card
Backing paper - Love Tokens from Helen Jones Designs 12" x 12" double sided paper pad
I used both the printed and plain side
LOTV die cut image
Spellbinders Labels One
Spellbinders Floral Tags for sentiment inked with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink
Sentiment stamp from Creative Expressions - Winter Greetings set
Gems, flowers and leaves from stash
I glitter round hat and scarf with glue pen and Diamond Sparkles Angels Kisses
Same as above but using Grand Labels One for bag
and rose from Floral Tags and some ribbon.
Feeling good now I have got a few cards under my belt today and really enjoyed playing. The dogs were a bit upset that I was not giving them much attention as I was engrossed in my crafting and they kept nudging my leg to get me to play and I had to give in a couple of times.
Well ladies as usual I eagerly await your comments and look forward to tomorrow to have my browse around all your lovely posts.
