Love & Romance

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Love & Romance*

Today I have put together a really simple little tut on how I made my very easy little bag (that could be suitable for many occasions)
I have used the collection Work & Play - Love & Romance avaible on a CD or as a full download

I wanted to do a bag around 6.5 inches in height so cut some pink card stock to start
I then cut the following elements mounting the L plates onto the already cut card

The pink jaggedy bits are to assemble the bag together - these do not have to be neat - I used to spend forever trying to be as neat as , until Nikky pointed out no-one see's them !! there on the inside - doh of course they are 

I then glued the bag together - using my not so perfect jaggedy bits

Then the fun totally begins

Glueing all the little elements in place and seeing your bag come to life
I like to also use a few foam tabs to add some depth
Plenty of sparkle, glitter and glossy accents

(I also added a couple of feathers and a little lace)

and here it is - fit for any bride to be

Lily Bug Love Bag

Happy Thursday and welcome back to my blog for my second post today
Check back to my previous post to welcome 

This time I have made a simple little bag using the lovely Lily Bug Love Hello you can find her as a digi here. But more importantly you cann get the whole collection on a CD here or as a complete download here, they really are value for money

I adore making bags so very easy and printing them off and cutting myself means I can make them any size I wish, this one stands at 6.5 inches perfect for some little gifts.

The main ladybird is an emblie that I have made much larger, printed out and then cut , I also lined this with some Kraft card so it is very sturdy and stands proud
 I love the decorating part, and seeing it all come together , 
Ohhhh a collection of these for a little girls party for her friends to take home a piece of cake and a few sweeties........perfect...

The ideas I have with this collection are endless, Pop back on Saturday to see some more of Lily
