Joy's Life Design Team Thursday!


I am very excited to show you today's Joy's Life Design Team project! I created this gift bag for my Mom on her Birthday. I used Joy's Life Stamp Set "All Around Sentiments" (I LOVE this set!!) and the gift bag is a cut file from a new to me company (Thanks Thienly for the intro to the company) My Time Made Easy. Lauren's story is a must read, she is an amazing lady! (Y'all will be seeing a lot more of her cut files here! LOL) I used pink cardstock from Recollections (Michaels) and the patterned paper is from the Isabelle Collection from Anna Griffin (On Sale at Michaels) and I used pink brads from my stash for the handle attachment pieces. The closure was created using my I-Top (I have had it for a couple of years and have never used it, I love that thing now and it will see lots of use!!) I used a Stampin Up scalloped circle punch for the gift tag, I stamped the sentiment and then poked a hole and attached the sentiment tag with some pink and white twine from The Twinery. I also used Velcro dots for the actual closure. Here are a few more shots of the bag at different angles, I hope y'all like it as much as I do!! :-)
**editing to add**
The rosette on the front of the bag, I made using a 12 inch long strip of paper, I used a Martha Stewart border punch and punched a fancy border then scored it every 1/4 inch using the Martha Stewart score board then glued the two ends together. I punched out a scalloped circle (Stampin Up punch) and hot glued it to the rosette.


When you go to Joy's Life, check out the two newest stamp sets Holiday Occasions and Everyday Occasions, I just received them this week and they ROCK!!! And they mix and match with each other and all of the other stamp sets!! (Isn't Joy Super Smart!!!??)
