Cricut Artbooking Black Cat gift bag

Hello, friends!


Today's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge called for the use of a dog or cat, so I used this scary feline from the Artbooking cartridge. I also used the Eek and Shriek stamp set which coordinates with the Artbooking cartridge. Now, before I get tons more angry emails that I am posting Halloween projects, know that this is the second to last project with this theme for the year. I realize that Halloween is offensive to many of you and have always kept Halloween projects to a minimum due to this. Please know that I value all of my followers and respect your views. I do, however, get requests for Halloween project ideas. I try to be everything to ever body, but that is very hard to do all of the time. Balancing content is something I do think about and try to do.

This gift bag would be great for treats for your little monsters. I also think this would be cute to give to your neighbors or your child's teacher!

Melanie your Halloween bag turned out great. I do love your tag and your kitty is scary cute. Your ribbon accessory is so perfect.
I'll bet it is hard to keep a balance to please everyone but ya know girly girl you always do a fantabulous job and trust me I appreciate it and I hope everyone else does too. Non of us really know what it takes to do what you do. So a big THANK YOU for all that you do and how you go about doing it!!

Melanie, thanks for the great treat bag. I've been making Halloween treat bags for my 4 yo grand son since he was born so this will get the juices flowing.

It is a challenge trying to keep everyone happy with your projects, and doing this site on a daily basis is a lot of work. There are many of us who appreciate all you do. The yard displays are waaaay more offensive than your projects.

Melinda said...

Mel - The bag is too cute and I so LOVE that stamp set. Always been partial to cards / projects where black and white stand out like that! Thanks for sharing!

Auntie Em said...

This is such a cute gift bag. Not everything has to be black and orange! I love the lilac for a little more feminine touch.
Thanks for sharing! :)

JM Collier said...

Cute bag! This week's give away is so on my wish list!

Brenda said...

I love how this bag turned out!! That cat is fabulous and I love the tags! I'm sorry if you are getting grief over Halloween, I love Halloween projects but I know there are many that don't. I think you do a fabulous job of pleasing everyone and as far as I am concerned if someone doesn't like something they can "change the channel" so to speak. To each his own, different strokes for different folks, etc...No everyone is going to like everything and that is what makes the world go 'round. So just keep doing what you are doing my friend! Hugs!!

Lara said...

Beautiful bag- I love how fuzzy the kitty is! Nice work as always! By the way, I won the Pennant cart from you and have made three of them in a month! Somebody stop me! Thanks so much for giving it to me!

Melanie your bag is just purr-fect!
We don't celebrate Halloween here in the UK like you do in the States but I still like to make Halloween things for my family. Amazed how narrow minded some people can be!!There really are more important issues in the World!

marymaci said...

Darling bag, Melanie. Love that cat.
Love your work.
Count me as one who appreciates all you do!

Melanie,

Just keep doing what you like best. If some of your visitors to your blog don't like Halloween -- that is their choice. It is nice of you to try to please everyone but sometimes we just don't need to all the time.
Your work is so awesome.
I'm glad you made something for Halloween and I'm going to try to duplicate it.
Thank you for all the wonderful projects you share with us every day!
Jill

Such a cute bag! Melanie, I appreciate all of the work you put into your blog, and your creations. It's not possible to please everyone, but you have the most balanced and versatile blog. You keep up doing what you do best, and if somebody doesn't like it, they can just move on that day! BethAnn M.

Martha Herrera said...

I'm so sorry that you get nasty emails about Halloween. You are doing a fabulous job displaying your creations everyday, and if they don't like Halloween, then they should simply hop to a different blog!
