Ustamp Project -- Gift Bag

Yahoo, it's Friday!

I'm so looking forward to the weekend. We only have 1 hockey game and I'm can't wait to just hang at home with my family. Both of my girls are having play dates with their friends and I will be working in my studio. I can't wait to play with all my new goodies that arrived this week. I will be showing you some projects next week with them. 

My friends Heather and Dawn started this great on-line class called UStamp. The amazing thing about Ustamp is that they design cool 3-D projects, layouts, cards and so much more. I have joined all the Ustamp session that they have offered and love it. You can check out the Ustamp blog here for more details.

My stamper's 6 club ladies learned how to make this cute purse this week. It was a template from Ustamp for a different project. I changed the template around by using different colours and stamps to make it my own. I used the Botanical Blooms Sale-a-Bration stamp sets to decorated. They all love it!!


Here is a top view with some cards inside.


Recipe: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, and Whisper White card stock, Delicate Dots D.S.P, Botanical Blooms (SAB product) stamp set, Photo Corner Punch, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, Ribbon Bundle (SAB product), Scallop Border Punch, Hugs and Wishes stamp set, Summer Sun and More Mustard ink.

Have a super duper day!!


UStamp Gift Bag and Card set

Yahoo, it's Friday!!

Not that I'm wishing my last of week of summer holidays away, but I'm glad it's Friday!! It's been a crazy week around here and this weekend we are in another soccer tournament.

Do you remember me telling you about the UStamp on line program that my good friend Heather Summer and Dawn Rapsas started?? It's amazing!! In this fun program, you will make 10 beautiful projects, there will be tips, techniques and so much more. All supplies will be Stampin' Up products showing case beautiful products from the New Fall/Winter Catalogue.

You can still join in on the fun, check out all the details on the website here. Make sure to tell them that I sent you!!

Anyway, I wanted to show you one of the bonus projects we receive this week. It's a really cute Gift Bag and Card set. I knew that I just had to make this. I used the basic template as a guide and then I changed it up to make it my own. I used a different stamp set for my greetings on my card. Let me know what you think??


Here is a close up picture of the cards.
