This Cute LIttle Treat Bag is one of the new Muslin Bags from the Holiday Catalog.  We made this at my Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting on Saturday.

It is easy to use the stencils from the Build a Banner kit.. just mask off if you only want a couple rows like I did here.

I just used regular Pumpkin Pie Classic ink, because I didn't think this project would need to hold up in the wash or anything… if you need it more permanent, be sure to use Staz On ink or acrylic paints.

My 2nd project features my FAVE new PUNCH>>> the Chevron Border punch!!


I had the unique opportunity to mail a birthday card to Wendy's
grandpa who was turning 90.. I wanted something masuline but still
fun… Here is what I came up with featuring the NEW Chevron Border Punch.

I thought it was kind of a good blend of masculine colors and
textures and shapes.. nothing too frilly… I think the Chevron Border
Punch is a great touch for masculine cards… don't you?
