Gifts Bags, Final Day!

It's Wednesday! Almost done for the week! It's also report card day today, I can't wait to see how the kids did this year.

So this is the final day of my gift bag sharing. I hope that you have found some inspiration. If you would like to create your own gift bags you can find the bags and supplies that you need in the Idea Book and Catalogue.

Well, last day of school for my kids which means summer has arrived! I look forward to hopefully seeing some sunshine. This week also means that the new Idea Book and Catalogue is starting. As of July 1 you will be able to order all the wonderfully fabulous new products. Email me today to get your copy of the new catalogue for only $10.

Gift Bags

Happy Monday all! I hope that everyone is set for a short week...I know I am! I am very much looking forward to a long weekend of relaxation.

This weekend I managed to finish up some gift bags that I was working on. For the next few days I would like to share them with you. The gift bags were decorated using some retired Designer Series papers that I had, cardstock, dies and ribbons. Just basically what I had on hand.

I hope that you like them

Don't forget the Card Buffet tonight. If you haven't signed up yet, I still have a few spots available.

It's the start of another new week and I hope that you all have something fun planned this week. I was lucky enough to win tickets to see Rhianna Tuesday night so hubby and I will be having a date night.
I am wishing for some good weather so I can use my patio table and my new coasters! These are a fun project that we made last week at Stamper's Club. They are so quick and easy to make and would make a wonderful little gift for a friend.
We make a lot of cute little projects and learn some really cool techniques in our Stamper's Club, so if you think you might be interested in joining just send me an email. I will be starting new Stamper's Clubs in the fall.

Here is my coaster project!


- Big Shot machine
-Big Shot adhesive sheets
- Cork
- Medium Window Sheets
- Paisley Petals DSP
