Christmas Gift Bag

Hello friends
Remember me saying how much you may see of Layered Poinsettia....
here it is again and this time inked with blue - brhhh makes me feel a little cold looking at it!
This is one of my envelope gift bags and for the closure die cut I used 
Again it is a project for Make Christmas Cards Magazine and using the freebie
papers and little tag.
Now something else to tell you all -
Cosmic Shimmer Glue is now available in my Amazon shop but the lids have changed from the image pictured there.  Apparently it is due to customer feedback.  The lids are now the screw on smaller ones.
If, like me, you like a nozzle applicator please hold on to the ones that you have, 
they are interchangeable - I checked this out - I was rather concerned about my nozzles!  
(Oh my, that does sound strange!)

Also, for those who missed it - the flower I used on yesterday's tag was
Bauble Blossoms One  - they have been featured on a Friday Die Day here.
Also apologies if I confused anyone with asking you to cross over to Scrapbook Adhesives blog,
no I don't have two blogs - I design for Scrapbook Adhesives and twice monthly post a project on their blog.  Goodness, I don't think I could keep up with two blogs every day! :)
As for the stamp it is an A6 Alpha Writing - makes a change from script doesn't it. I hope to be stocking these A6 stamps along with the photo corners in my Amazon shop fairly soon. 

I'm all organised for tomorrow's Friday Die Day.
I've received a few more requests for certain dies and I have them on my list. 
Always feel free to ask - as long as I have the dies I'm sure I can make a tag with them! :)
Have a great day.

Hi Christine, what a great idea, will save lots by making these gift bags and not buying them. You have set my creative juices flowing. Love the design and colours.

Hi Christine

Love this gift bag. I have been making bags myself lately but using lining paper then I can make bigger bags. Love how you close yours, is the die for the flap cut down and stuck to the back of the bag please?

Hi Christine, I will never, ever tire of this die, I love it and it looks amazing with the blue - absolutely gorgeous (it does make me feel a bit chilly too). Thanks for the tip about the glues, I had no idea, will hang onto mine. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Jenny L said...

Hi Christine,
beautiful gift bag. Love the colour blue. I haven't got these dies, but my sister in law has so the next time I visit I will go armed with some card, so I can cut out a few. She has only just bought hers GC so I said to her I would list my dies so she didn't buy the same, and we can borrow each others isn't that fab.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Christine, Love the bag, the colours really do make you feel chilly, but will be very seasonal soon. Took the plunge and ordered from your Amazon shop yesterday. At last I will have that script die! Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

Beautiful gift bag Christine - lovely icy blue as well. I must get my poinsettia dies out again this year (didn't use them last year -oops). Again I must stop thinking traditional (red to cream) and think blue!!! lol.

Hugs and TTFN - will catch up on FDD.

Hi Christine,
Another fabulous craft idea and I especially love the beautiful blue you have used. I still have not managed to get the poinsettia die but I really must order it asap or Christmas will be over again (oh now that sounds scary!)
Look forward to Die Day tomorrow.
Hugs Linda
