Scrapbook Boutique - Stamped Treat Sacks.


I'm hoping BLOGGER won't let me down again today!!! My posts are not going up at the times I schedule ......for some reason.  Very frustrating :(.

I'm sharing a little project for Scrapbook Boutique today.

It's always so nice to mix up the things I enjoy doing.......stamping and sewing, in this case.

I made up these little homespun sacks to fill with goodies for my Mahjong playing friends, thinking that the bag might be put to good use after the contents are removed.
It's a great way to showcase the Memento Luxe inks, which are really perfect for Mixed Media Artists. I've also used  a Penny Black 6x4-1/4" (approx.) stamp on both the front and back of the sack.

You can find all the details over on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog today.

As with most things once I started I couldn't resist adding more and these timber embellishments which came from a local craft store, seemed like a good addition.  Check out Scrapbook Boutique you'll find some fabulous themed pieces that would work just as well, I added one I really like in the links below.  I used the matching inks to colour the timber ornaments too!

Thanks for calling past today, till next time..............    5 more sleeps, I hope you're all starting to relax ready for the festivities!!!
