Manly Gift Bag and News!

 I have been on this gift bag making kick for awhile because I just love using the Cricut cuts in a different way.  Today's bag would be perfect for a guy's gift since it isn't girly at all.

I cut the leaf from the Sophie Cricut cartridge at 4-1/2" and inked around the edges.  Then, I applied to it a sheet of kraft paper I had already run through the Cuttlebug using a leaf patterned embossing folder.

If you don't have the Sophie cartridge, there are many other cartridges with leaves on them.
 Paper was by October Afternoon.  Ribbon was by Jillibean Soup and Stampin Up!.  Bag from Hobby Lobby.

The news is that Hello Thursday is today and we should be able to show projects with the new cartridges soon so keep checking back.  There are some fun ones!

Also, don't forget about this week's Winter Frolic giveaway!

  13. I love how you decorated the bag! That embossing folder is great.

  95. Fall is my absolute favourite time of year. I love the colours and smells and sound of crunchy leaves walking through the woods. Fall colours are warm colours and make me feel good. Sunshine with moderate temperatures (and no bugs) makes enjoying outdoors fun. And don't forget all the harvesting of garden crops and comfort foods made with squash, pumpkin, turnip, etc etc.

The cool nights for snuggling with your love one, your family or maybe even a friend at the high school football game. Hey! and I'm a fall baby. Born in October. Its also my favorite time of the year.

    What I love about autumn is the change in clothing...as much as I love summer, there is just something about putting on a nice fluffy sweater and curling up on the couch.

  158. What I like about the autumn season is the cool, crisp air that livens me up, the air conditioning goes off and the windows get opened to air out the house. And then there's the apple cider!!!!

  159. Pretty bag but generic enough to be used all year around for any occassion. My favorite thing about fall is that crisp feeling in the air especially on a Friday night. It just says football! I also love Marching Band season.

  166. What a beautiful bag...Favorite Christmas song has to be Silent Night second favorite is Grandma got run over by a reindeer. My grandma would always tease us that is why we always had to have Christmas at her house so she wouldn't get run over.

  171. love all your ideas and projects, I'm not a big fall person, maybe because I'm in So Calif. I love summer, but fall does bring uncrowded beaches. Look forward to hearing more about the new Sillouette, interesting. Thanks for all you do for us! Jan

  177. Gift bags are so much fun to do...like little pieces of art. I laugh when someone says they'll never re-gift in a hand decorted bag. I love the clean and simple look of this one.

  182. I absolutely love the cooler evenings. It is a chance to open the windows and enjoy a quiet, relaxing sit outside while not covered in bug spray. lol Some of the trees are starting to change and that signals that fall is definitely around the corner.
