JUGS, Mojo & Bags...

I decided to combine my JUGS with my MOJO this week. Just Us Girls Challenge #153 was using a "line stamp"  and Monday Mojo 258 was a great sketch by Julee Tillman.


This birthday card is for one of the ladies at School, well actually Claire's Kindergarten teacher, Mrs Lloyd. Claire is now in year two...


As this card is another "give away" there is an inside as well.

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!! I'm so excited at the moment! I have found the ULTIMATE use for all (or some) of my brown packaging paper that I get with my Stampin' Up! orders. Ready??? Mini brown shopping bags, yes MINI BROWN SHOPPING BAGS.

 They don't look mini in the photo so I added the I-Tunes card (thanks K) so you could see how tiny they are! They would be perfect for lolly bags or for little samples and/or gift cards!  I cut them out (about 8 at a time) with the "Fancy Favour Die" I then twisted the side bits (from the off-cuts) after trimming for the handles in one and folded for the other. I think the folded handles look better.  If you use paper other than the brown packaging I would suggest NOT doing 8 at a time!  You could even have them with no handles for a mini lunch bag look - they fold flat nicely for later use!

Keep Stampin',  Marls xx

PS, I will have some very exciting news to share in the coming weeks...
