last sneek peak and tip for Sunday

So, every Journal/Smash Book must come with some stash to play with and this one does.  I did not want to put it in a clear bag or a gift bag with handles, I wanted a proper paper bag.  So I started playing with some templates.  Last week I ran into Starbuck's and got one of their Blueberry Oat Bars (love those things) and the bag was laying on my craft table, hmmmm, it was the perfect size just needed to be a little longer, so went to work and made a template and I really do think I love this bag.  Over all size is 6 1/2" X 8" and there is a 1" gusset on both sides. I might do a tutorial later on, this coming week is spoken for, LOL.  The label on the bag "Spellbinders" with a "Nice Crane Designs" illustration from Alice.  I thought the Knights mixing color was perfect.  Background sprayed with Copics and airbrush. Contents?  That will remain a secret for now, Miss Christy.

My tip for the day, when I am putting my journals/memory books together, one of the things I fret over is the placement of pages, I punch the pages as they are done and keep them on a 2" binder ring, this way I can move them to and fro until I am satisfied. Did you move those clocks forward? Happy Sunday, Hugs
