Mother’s Day Gift Bag

M day bag

I have another Mother’s Day project to share! This is a gift bag I made that has been published in Paper Crafts Magazine May/June issue. It’s a fantastic issue!

I’m sure they will be showing some sneaks on the Paper Crafts Connection blog. Right now on their blog, you can read about their Card Creations Vol. 9. I have a a card in that one as well. It’s been a fun week to get my magazines in the mail and a happy email from them, requesting more. Thank you Paper Crafts!

I used Spellbinders Labels Sixteen and Ribbon Tags Trio Two along with Restoration Pattern Paper by Crate Paper to design this bag. The tag has two different sentiments on it. The ‘Love You’ is a Waltzing Mouse stamp from the Seasons of Love set and the ‘Mom’ is a Gina K Designs stamp from Nina Brackets Lovely Shelf set.

Some other fun news is that I am a featured member at Inspire Me which is the Webster’s Pages site. Just yesterday, I got some new Webster’s Pages supplies from i{heart}paper.com and it got me so excited to create some things and then I got an email saying I was being featured. What timing!

We just got back from celebrating my son’s 12th birthday in Portland. Wow. I can’t believe that he will be a teenager next year! He really, really wants to learn how to play the base guitar so we surprised him with one for his birthday and boy was he surprised!!

I wanted to mention that since I had a new blog make-over the ‘email update’ feature was somehow removed. I added a new one to the side bar so if you are wanting to receive email updates on new posts, you can add your email addy their.

I hope you had a great weekend! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Oh, this is beautiful, Julie! Congratulations on the publication!
Austin turns 12 on Monday. Instead of a gift, he opted to take three of his friends to see kung Fu Panda 2 in the theatre.
