We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

What's your bag?

Initially I didn't have any inspiration for this week's Craft Barn challenge - all about bags.  But I'm still sorting out some stuff in my new craft room, and came across a bag of bags - sandwich bags to be precise!  I used to decorate them to turn them into little gift bags, so ...

I used Ryn's set of hibiscus stamps (just in time for Ryn's May challenge), and coloured them with Distress pens; added a bit of sparkle, then die-cut a little humming bird

Now I've got a gift bag to use for an upcoming birthday.

I've put the rest of the bags in a prominent place so I don't forget them again!


  1. Always good to have a few of these ready decorated, you never know when you'll need one! The flowers stamps are gorgeous, bursting with colours against the clean white.

  2. Hey Kaybee, love the masking and placement of the flowers on this bag! Beautifully done. That is one special gift bag :)

  3. Wow, that is beautiful! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge!

  4. A beautifully decorated bag to hold a gift. Love the hibiscus stamps.

  5. GORGEOUS, love these beautiful and bright flowers. I don't know these stamps, can you help me out? Would love to find Ryn's stamps!!!

    What a glorious gift-bag!!!

    Best wishes to you,
