Distressing In the Bag

 
I'm a huge fan of the In the Bag die and have used it a lot!  If you like to stalk my blog you already know this;) I taught a class the other night and this was one of the fun crafty things we made.  Did you know I teach this stuff now.  Wouldn't it be fun to do an online class, build it and sell the kits!  Not sure if anyone would be into that?
 
Off track... Behold...the Bag. 
 
I stamped the compass Blueprint Travel set onto red distress paper, then cut the star part adding some Rock Candy for a subtle shimmer.  I stamped again "Enjoy the Journey" on some more red and hand cut that.  Great trick for us crooked stampers.
 
 
I stamped the compass from the Blueprint Travel stamp set, embossed with the compass folder and sanded my distress paper.  I'm addicted to this paper.  I love the Film Strip Ribbon and the nib just finishes it off.
 
I don't buy anything unless I can really use it.  When I picked up the new Mini Film/ Mini Ticket strip die I thought the film strip would be a great handle!  Love it when I'm right;p  TIP; Pre-sand your paper then cut it out. 
 
 
Thanks for coming by to see:)
 
If you need some MASCULINE FATHER'S DAY Ideas...stay tuned.  I made some pretty awesome stuff!
