This bag is great! I always have trouble finding the perfect gift bag - maybe I need to just start making my own.

Sunny said...

Hehe as a mom of two boys (and all my friends have boys), I really need more "masculine" projects. I started by getting the Guy Stack from DCWV. Nice patterns!

I am very new at this, hubby bought me my cricut mini 2 weeks ago. I am amazed at the beautiful cards you have made and I have only just begun to go through them!, You are so talented, I hope to learn how to implement the cartridges into my work, by looking at yours before I buy any.

Linda said...
