Cricut Artiste fancy gift bag

Hello, friends!

Cricut Artiste fancy gift bag

Today, I have a gift bag that I made for a friend whose birthday was last week. It is made using the Cricut Artiste cartridge and the July stamp of the month. Another really great way to use your alphabet stamps are for personalization. I was able to incorporate her name into the decoration of the bag. Now, since her name is Joy, I could have used a Christmas stamp that said Joy, but you get the point.

Tomorrow,  I have the card that goes along this bag. It is my last example of how to use an alphabet stamp set. It has both personalization and a custom sentiment.

Whoo hooo the first one! Love your gift bag, but can't believe you've shared a whole month of great ideas using the stamp of the month. It's been a wonderful month seeing all of your personalized sentiments. Can't wait to see what August holds.
