Last year I saw and liked the bag in this video and I finally got a chance to make one.  The Crafty Friends Challenge #4 is to make something other than a card.  The bag base is card stock from DCWV's the Christmas Stack collection.  I cut a diamond from some SU baja breeze cs and did some partial embossing on it using the Cuttlebug spots and dots folder to frame the sentiment.  I matted it onto a  piece of black cs also cut to a diamond shape for the focal image of the bag.  The handles are cut from some Michaels ribbon and the eyelets are by American crafts.  The sentiment is a die from the Cuttlebug Olivia font die set.  The to: and from: images I stamped onto the die cut Cuttlebug tag are from the Birthday4cookie stamp set by The Stamps of Life.  A few sheets of some tissue paper finishes off the bag. 

Take Two of These

I participated in a challenge on StampTV a few weeks ago to case a card by design team member Michelle Woerner but it also required you to change at least two things on your card.  I chose her white gardenias card.  I used images from the 100% Sweet stamp set by Gina K. Designs.  Images are colored using a blender pen and Stampin Up ink colors, tempting turquoise, lovely lilac and pixie pink.  I used a Nestabilities scallop square die to cut the matching Stampin Up card stock colors to mat each colored image.
