Tranquil Textures Gift Bag

Today is the day!  The Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue launches today and I can start ordering from my shopping list at 11am (except that I’m at work so will actually have to wait until my lunch break – boo!)

As an independent demonstrator I was lucky enough to be able to order some products from the new catalogue in advance.  One of the products I bought was the Tranquil Textures designer series paper.  This has 12 sheets of 6 double sided designs an each page measures 12 x 12 inches.  I love each and every one of the designs, so look out for more projects using them soon.

My first project is this gift bag…


I love the colour combination of Night of Navy and Fresh Fig on this page and I wanted to show both sides of the paper.

I cut my sheet down to 12 x 8 inches and used my Gift Bag Punch board to make a large width bag.  After I had used the Gift Bag Punch board to punch the notches and score the fold lines I also used my Simply Scored board to score a line 1 inch in from the top of the bag, so I could fold this over and show the other side of the paper.

The gift tag uses the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and I used the dotty stamp in Fresh Fig ink full strength and also ‘stamped off’ onto Whisper White card.  I backed this with Fresh Fig card.  I used the new Detailed Trio punch to create the holes to thread my Silver Metallic Edged ribbon through.

I hope you like this project.  I’ve listed the products used below and from 11am today (GMT) you can use the links to visit my online shop.

If you do order from my shop during June 2018 and use my hostess code 2VG73GR2 you will receive an extra free gift from me in July 2018.  However, if you choose for me not to contact you then I’m not legally able to send you any of my customer gifts – sorry.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions.

Happy crafting,
