new punch board and Incolors

I played around with the new paperbag punchboard and the super cool new =&0=&by Stampin’ Up! The=&1=& is great and so are the new colors – can’t really decide which one my favorite is though – and, does the bag look better with or without the little flower accents? I don’t know 🙁 how do you like the new stamp set? I like it a whole bunch and can’t wait to order some =&2=& next week, June 2nd, when you can order from the new annual catalogue 🙂

a very girly treat bag is what I created – polka dots, flowers, butterflies, pink – girly, right? 😛 We’d love to see some clear elements on your project over at CUYL – so hop over and play along — I punched some butterflies out of transparent foil 🙂 I like it 🙂 =&0=& AllSortsChallenge: April Showers bring May Flowers Fussy and Fancy: Lots of Flowers The Stamping Boutique: Ribbon and/or Lace Just us Girls: Twine Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

Wellness in der Tüte

Mother’s Day is on May 10th – maybe spa in a bag? Create a cute little bag, but some chocolates, candles, tea and bath beads in there and you’re to go 🙂 you may wonder why my bag is so wrinkly – I used the packing paper Stampin’ Up! used to fill up their boxes – I hope it comes back – I like it so much better than the stupid plastic they use now. =&0=& Moving along with the Times: anything but a square card Sweet Stampin Challenge: anything but a card Open-Minded Crafting for Fun: recycle something (I made a bag out of packing paper) SuzyPantsSmarty: anything goes with a punch or die Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog
