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!

Christmas Gift Bag

Crafting with Friends has another great anything goes challenge this week. Lacy Sunshine is the sponsor of the challenge. I have used their digital image called Frozen Lilac Flower Pot Pretty

I used a brown paper lunch bag as my base to the gift bag.   I coloured my image with glitter and Copics and then layered die cut snowflakes, Christmas tree and a poinsettia on the bag.  I sprayed the poinsettia with a light blue ink spray and then added some gems to give the bag some sparkle. I added glitter to my snowflakes.  To compete the project I added a sentiment from Just-Rite stamps. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have a very creative week.
