I'M BAAAACK...PARTY BAG

Party On!!!!
 
LOOK, I CAN STILL CRAFT... I'm back from Europe and trying to adjust after an 8 hour time difference!  I'm so tired...
 
It's my son's birthday party this weekend so I had to make some gift bags!  With the help of my GF's...THANK YOU!  I yawned through the whole cutting, embossing and building of them;)
 
These are small bags and fit a pack of gum and $10 gift card, perfect!  For the bag I used Tim Holtz In the Bag die and borrowed the strip die Washer Border for the handle. 

Look what I picked up at 40% off, TH Pocket Envelope...fits gift cards perfectly!  And much prettier than the envelopes you get with a gift card:)

I marked and punched where I wanted the brads to go then added the twine.  For the bottom brad that goes into the pocket you'll need a paper piercer.

I also picked up the Movers and Shapers Cargo Stencil Number set for 40% off.  I LOVE THIS FONT!  My son is turning 11 so I thought this might be fun on the pocket envelopes...if I had more time!

I embossed the front of the bag with the TH Gear folder and layered on the small movers and shapers gears to add some pop!  This ties in with my sons birthday invitations, click HERE to see them.

This bag is compact and fun!

Because I am pressed for time having just returned from Paris.  I opted to simply stamp the pocket envelopes.  Even though I wanted to use the cargo numbers I showed above. 

I used Scrappy Moms Stamps Hooray for Birthday's set, "For You and PARTY" stamps.  Lining them both on my block and stamping with Archival Black.  I love this stamp set!  One of my favorite SMS sets!

In total I made 12 bags with the help of my 2 crafty friends.  It's nice to be home, with my kids, baking and crafting.

A GOOD TIP; Glue one side of the washer border handle until you can fill the bag.  This way you aren't trying to force the goodies in.  Once the bag has been filled simply glue the other side using the sticky red strip tape:0)

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
