Decorated paper bags

Hi,

We decorated a cute little paper bag at one of the recent workshops at stampin'up! demonstrator Creations by Jolan.

Today I decided to decorate some more paper bags.
First is a paper bag that was a free gift at a Dutch magazine called Flow.
The wreath and the sentiment was already on it, I just coloured the leaves and flowers and made the little tag using some old stamps.



The second is a little bag decorated to hold a Christmas present.


Materials mostly from Stampin' Up!.

I'm entering these projects in the following challenges:

Mermaid card

Hi,

It's been a few weeks since my last post. We have been on vacation to the Canary Island of Fuerteventura.
We had a wonderful relaxing time in Jandia, on the sunny South coast of Fuerteventura..
The sea has the most beautiful color I've ever seen (in Europe) and very clear water.
The white sandy beach was broad. Typing this I just want to go back there :(

My card I'm sharing with you today has sea colors.


The mermaid digital image is a freebie from a day for daisies. I colored the image with watercolors.
I added water splashes on the turquoise paper, blue sequins and shell shaped sequins.

Welcome to the neighborhood card

Hello ..... welcome to my blog!

I used this weeks sketch from cas(e) this sketch for my next card. It's a card to welcome new neighbors.



A bit different this card is because I made the card entirely in Photoshop.
The little houses and trees are clips arts I bought at the etsy shop Pretty grafik design.  
I placed the houses and trees random on a white layer. The background is a gradient I made myself in Photoshop.
Then I printed the image on glossy paper, I think it gives a nicer look.
I printed the sentiment on the cardstock.

Entering in these challenges





Have a wonderful day, Thanks for visiting.
