August PTI Blog Hop!

YIPPEE I finally get to PLAY along again on the PTI blog hop.. it has been 3 months and I have MISSED it!!

So I am a bit late in posting.. EEK! Please forgive me.. and forgive the probably less then perfect photos.. I just wanted to get on and PLAY along..

and NOTE to self.. make choc. covered popcorn BEFORE you want to.. like an hour before.. the candy was a bit soft and messed up the bag.. it really is good.. and doesnt look like this photo ~ Ok it does look like it but taste good.. that is what counts RIGHT! :)

Enough talk.. on with the show.. our challenge was to use brown lunch bags! How FUN! I choose to cut mine down.. used my border punches (LOVE this idea now!) to make the top pretty.. stamping, stitching.. etc...

First up.. a fun Halloween Bag (ignore the messy clear bag PLEASE! ;) )

Next up a fun little fall gift bag to fill with treats! :)



Finally the TOP of those bags.. I stitched the sides and bottom.. ran it through my big shot with my NEW embossing plate.. and VIOLA! A little goodie bag-

Big enough to hold a cookie and some cider!!

I had another bag.. but GASP it didn turn out like my VISION so you dont get to see it! HA!
THANKS for stopping by.. HAPPY HOPPING.. cant WAIT to come visit you all!

  40. You were certainly busy! They're all fabulous, but I really love the web border on the first. There's a certain elegance about that one. I guess it's the almost delicate quality of the border. Great work!!
