I'm back with BAGS!

Wow - it sure has been quite some time since I've blogged. I am glad to be back in the craft room ~ even if it's just a little bit of time before I have to head back to my couch :) Well I had some major surgery (a hysterectomy) and before my surgery I was feeling awful. I am on the road to recovery and going to feel so much better soon!

I made some cute gift bags using SVG Cuts Happy Holidays SVG Kit. It is FREE for a limited time so make sure you go pick it up. Leo and Mary are so darn generous!

First off I downloaded the latest Echo Park Keepin Cozy Digital Kit. Grab it here - it's 30% off!

I printed out a bunch of papers on my Epson 1430 and there are lots of pretty patterned papers in this kit. I also did some print and cuts of my favorite elements. I did these on my Cameo (SO EASY!) I was using SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot) but decided to upgrade to Silhouette Studio Designer Edition and I absolutely love it! Here's a look at my print and cuts.

I then cut my patterned paper on my Cameo. With Designer Edition you can import SVGs. Here is a look at the fabulous FREE kit from SVG Cuts:

Here are my bags!  On each and everyone of them I reduced them down a bit to fit my gifts. This one even has the back decorated :) I used some twine from the Twinery.

I made a little card with this one with my extra print and cuts.

Well it does feel great to blog again. Hope your holiday preparations are going great. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


  1. I hope you will feel better soon!! Sending get well wishes! :)

  2. Your bags are super, gave me an idea... Thanks.

    I had a hysterectomy about 15 years ago, the best thing I could have done. Within 2 weeks I was feeling 100% better. Hope you will have the same results.
