You’re So Sweet Gift Bag

I recently taught a class focussing on different ways to use the Gift Bag Punch Board and this was one of the projects everyone completed.  A very similar Gift Bag was on display at Inspire, Create, Share on the Gold Coast and I just loved the fold over closure idea – just one of the ways to make your gift bag!

I have been going through metres and metres of the gorgeous satin ribbon in the last couple of months – it seems to be my go-to trim at the moment because it is just so elegant!


Sparkling Peony

Peonies have been my favourite flowers for a long time so I just can’t leave this image alone!  It comes from the stamp set You’ve Got This which has 2 great images but also a heap of GREAT senitments!

Watercolour Sparkle_Got This_Magpiecreates I had a great time colouring this image using my Stampin’ Write Markers and Aquapainter – I find colouring really relaxing & therapeutic!  I finished off the image by giving it a smudge of Dazzling Diamonds.Watercolour Sparkle_Got This1_Magpiecreates


Birthday Cake CASE

I am always telling people to save themselves time and CASE the great projects that appear in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, so I decided to show just how at my catalogue launch with this card from page 11!  I CASEd the card exactly as it is in the catty – except that I mucked it up entirely at my launch!!  I cut the window using the wrong size framelit and it all went downhill from there – just goes to show that we all muck up our crafting projects and just have to carry on!  Anyway, I have reworked the card to fix it up and it now looks much better!

Big News Baby!

We were lucky enough to visit my brand new nephew on the weekend – he is so sweet and content!  My youngest baby is now 5 so I had definitely forgotten just how little new babies are!  Of course I had to go shopping for some cute baby essentials to give and I needed just the perfect packaging to put it in!  Baby’s bedroom has been done up in shades of grey & yellow so that was my starting point.   I pulled out DSP, Cardstock and my Gift Box Punch Board & Gift Bag Punch Board and got to work!

I knew before I started that the full gift wouldn’t fit in 1 box so it was fun to be able to mix it up with 3 different packages!  Then of course I needed a matching card as well:
