Hi everyone! Happy Friday again! Hope you’ve had a great week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft for the Craic and I’m happy to share my guest designer project for Easter – Anything But A Card Challenge! OMG, I had a b.l.a.s.t. creating this shabby chic Easter gift bag! It’s all ready for some yummy candy Easter eggs and chocolates! ;)


I die cut the two pieces for the gift bag and put it together, then just started layering vintage images and elements.


I inked all the elements with Antique Linen distress ink, and then splattered white paint and purple shimmer ink.


Here are a few more photos taken at different angles. I love how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  10. Oh my, this gift bag is fabulous. Lots of embellishments that makes it exceptional. Thank you for blessing us with your artwork here at Word Art Wednesday. We are midway on our current challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word found in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 which tells us, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.” Have an awesome week.
