Hi, welcome to todays blog. Today I wanted to share with you my gift bag I made for my customers thank you gifts. I like to reward my regular customers for shopping with me by giving them a little something at the end of the year and these are the gift bags I designed for this year.
The gift bag itself was very simple to make, it actually only takes about 5 minutes. The tag attached took a little longer.
I really love the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. I have shared a project on here before using the cute little teddy bear, but for todays project I used the gingerbread man as he think he is as equally cute!
You will find all the measurements below for the bag and the tag, and I would love it if you could watch my video too.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you liked today’s project. You can purchase any of the items I have used by clicking on the picture links below.

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!
The lovely sketch for this month was provided for us by Amanda Charlesworth:
My first thought was that it was a really challenging design! So I sat at my desk looking through my thinlits and framelits dies when I spied a set I haven’t used for a while, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and realised they would be perfect for the lovely swirls that Amanda had put in her design. I could also use the great stamp set that comes with it, Swirly Bird.
My next challenge was colours – I really wanted to break away from the colour rut I have been in, I have a few favourite colours that I seem to use all the time so I really wanted to try some completely different colours. In the end I went for Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant, two really pretty colours that I haven’t used for ages.
To be honest I wasn’t completely sure how my card was going to end up looking, but once I had decided on my dies, stamps and colours I just had a play until I came up with something I was happy with.
Thank you Amanda for a great challenge!
I hope you have enjoyed this project, please click the back and next buttons to continue this hop and you will see some great creations!

Hi and welcome to this weeks blog!
I have combined a couple of my favourites today to produce these cute little gift bags.
I adore the Bella and Friends stamp set, it’s so cute. And my favourite designer series paper at the moment is the gorgeous Blooms and Bliss. It is really beautiful.
I have two favourite tools at the minute. One is the Stampin’ Up Gift bag Punchboard. It’s so easy to produce gorgeous gift bags in minutes! The other is the gorgeous die set, Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies – these dies add a beautiful effect to your project.
So I have put together these favourites in a YouTube video, so that you can see how they all come together beautifully.
I really hope that you enjoy this video and give these gift bags a go yourself.
Thanks for stopping by,
