Softpencil Thursday-Halloween Bag


Hi Everyone,

It's Thursday and that means it is Softpencil Thursday!!! Yay!! I love this image! She is just too cute. This is another new stamp by our talented and fearless designer, Elizabeth. Our design element this week was to make a treat bag. I love making treat bags and giftie things.

Sorry my post is a little late. I was up most of the night with Hubby and his yucky sinuses. I've had it all week and now he has it. I don't know if any of you have acid reflux, but when you have a sinus infection, the acid reflux rears it's ugly head and you feel like you're having a heart attack!! It is very painful. Ok enough whining, let's get to my project!

I used a Creative Imaginations treat bag and added my stamped images to make a really cute Halloween gift for someone special. The Little Witch and the Bats are by Softpencil Designs. Are those little bats not adorable?? The fence is a Hampton Arts stamp and the sentiment is a Studio G. The papers are by Bo Bunny and Paper Studio. I cut around the edges of the purple paper with my zig zag or pinking scissors. I colored my images with my copics and chalked the backgrounds with chalk. I popped the witch and bats up on pop dots.I folded the top down and tied pretty ribbon through it and my treat bag was born!! I made one of these recently and finished the top the exact same way but I just love it like that so I did it again! It's ready for some yummy candy, bath products, anything that you want to put in is fine. I hope you like my bag as much as I enjoyed making it for you.



I entered this project into the Belli Challenge #74 and the AiFactory Challenge. A twofer, yay!!

Don't forget that Softpencil images are digital images so you can resize them to any size that you need for your project. Please visit my other DT sisters to see their stunning designs.
