Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Joyeux Noel - Christmas Gift Bag

I created this Christmas gift bag using a regular paper lunch bag.   The digital images I used are part of the Christmas Collection of CS Designs.  I think this little angel is so cute.  You can find CS Designs' Christmas collection here.  

I folded my paper bag then layered my angel, doily, snowflakes, winter tree and poinsettias.  The images were coloured with Copic Markers and glitter paint. To complete my bag I added lots of bling, gems and sprayed it with Goose Bumps. I like making Christmas projects with all of their sparkle and shine.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day. Remember my favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
