Disney baby gift bag made using the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge.

Hello, friends!

 I hope you all had a great weekend! We finally finished up our move and I will spend the week settling in to my new craft room. I'm trying to get it exactly how I want it, so I keep moving things around. I'm hoping that I will be satisfied soon enough, so I can get back to crafting!


Today's Bitten By the Bug challenge required me to use a Disney character from one of the many Dinsey Cricut cartridges. I chose the Pooh and Friends cartridge because it has this cute little elephant named Lumpy on it. This cut is one I had never cut before and I thought he would make a cute baby bag. I just felt like cutting something that was not too overtly Disney if you know what I mean.

I used up a bunch of scraps to make this, so I am not sure about cardstock brands or colors.
I used a bit of white satin ruffle from Melissa Frances.
 I wanted to let you all know that I am sending out the NEW Autumn/Winter catalogs to my regular customers today. If you do not get one with by mid week next week or so, but want one be sure to let me know!

Like the Disney Dumbo image. Especially like the white inking on Dumbo that is complimented by the white stitching on the ribbon.
