Lots of Bags

Hello Blogger Friends,

My absent from blogging was working and then after work I made these for my friend Elisabeth.  Elisabeth and I met at a craft show several years ago and we became friend since then.  She sells jewelry.  I  needed some nice beads.  She told me that she can sell me some of the beads but it turned out she likes my bags so we exchanged her beads and my bags.  I used the We R Memories punch board bag.  I made at least 20 bags for her.    Each bag was decorated a little different.  I like how each bag turn out.  I hope Elisabeth will like them too.



 I wanted to get rid of my old pattern papers.  So I used them to make extra large bags  for my Fall craft shows.  Are you ready for the numbers?????




                                                      Awaiting in the box for handles.



                                                            Don't they make pretty gift bags?
                                                            40 bags completed with handles

I made 151 extra large bags.  I thought I got rid of a lot of papers but I used only 302 sheets of 12 x 12 pattern papers.  I still have more pattern papers. Oh, no!

Any how thanks for stopping by and have a great week a head!

La Creame Note cards

Hi All,

I woke up this morning and had been busy organized Faye's room. Then bagged many  unwanted items to go to GoodWill. I forgot all about today post.

 I bought a stack of DCWV called La Creame  matstack ages ago.  Here are two cards I made using the matstack.  The butterfly stamp was from Stampin' Up called Priceless.  I stamped and then cut out the image.  I wanted a regular postage stamp so I did not add any embellishment.


That is it for this week.  Wishing everyone a wonderful week a head!
