DIY Gift Bag

DIY Gift Bag

I seen a DIY video on Facebook and when I went back to watch it again could not find it, so went to trusty ole Pinterest and located the instructions there.

Using Christmas paper purchased from the local new Dollar Tree Store, I just guessed at a size I wanted to make and created this gift bag.  The instructions placed her item to wrap on the paper before cutting out the paper - I just guesstimated my size and decided to use it for a Christmas gift going to a friend.  And since the paper is of cheap quality (you pay for what you buy) this can be disposed of after the gift is open.

Here is the link for the DIY Gift bag DIY Gift Bag .

Or:  you can check out for videos to watch.  

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great holidays.

I created this card:


 Occasionally I view Pinterest for ideas and this quilted background popped out at me.  I thought I would give it a try using this image from the store at Scrapping with Lisa Designs .

I printed and cut the image using my Silhouette Cameo and Studio Design Edition software, colored the image using my old, almost dried out Stampin! Up markers.  Layered all onto a red cardstock

The Sun was placed on a Action Wobble so it can shake or wobble.

September Layout - Pumpkins 4 Sale


A one-page layout September themed for my youngest great-granddaughter's scrap book.  

Took me awhile to finish; and than to take pics - due to weather being cloudy and rainy, and than appts for myself and my sister, it was 'put on the back burner'.

This is a file that is included with the September ChooChoo Train by Creative Kuts.  Check it out at Creative Kuts Facebook page.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me.  I apologize for being irregular in my postings.  I have stepped down from my duties with the design teams I've been on; and the final one I am going on the injured list for a few months.  

We will be having a sister-in-law from Minneapolis, MN visiting us during January and February, 2016; and my son finally got the good news that the U.S. Army signed off on his packet for early (6 months) release from service.  He would be leaving the service in October, 2016, but he has obtained a job and will be starting in May, 2016 once the family is settled in Alabama.

I am devoting more time to scrapbooking my grandchildren and great grandchildren (the 4th one is due May 14, 2016) so my postings will be slow.  Check back often as I may have a free file to share with you.
