A bag full of love

Hello everyone :)

For my next project the stamps I have used are from the 'In a word' and 'Love and Laughter' sets.

When looking at the four main stamps from the In a Word set, I thought that they would make great gift tags, so without further ado, I put my theory to the test and here is my finished gift bag:


I used my cricut to cut out the template for the bag, using the inchbag cut from the tags, bags and more cartridge. For those who don't have a cricut, I found this site through google which has a section with lots of templates that are free for your own personal use including a similar bag template to this one.

Once I'd cut out my template I cut the bag in half so the top and bottom half measure 3"wide and used a punch along the top edge of the box. I then cut a 1.5 inch wide piece of clear transparency and used the with love word, stamping randomly over the transparency with red stazon ink. When dry I then attached it to both sections of the box with dst, stitching one side for extra strength.

I then glued my bag together, added the big heart which I cut out from my paper and stamped two smaller hearts using both heart images from 'love and laughter'. I punched holes in either side of the bag to thread my ribbon handle through and knotted them on both sides. I then punched my tag twice onto different coloured card and attached to the handle.


big smiles,

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
