A Gift Bag for a Man... and More...

Do you know how Max calls me ? "The Bag Lady" lol... Yes, I have made another gift bag, this time it is for a man. I must say I always struggle a bit when I have to make something for a man but now thanks to Nicecrane Designs I have found the right images for any male project ! The sets are called "The Roosevelt Bears" I and II and the images are so quirky and fun ! Here is what I have made with one of them...


Recipe : Papers from K and Co - Car and Corners : Dies from Marianne Design.

My gift bag will enter the challenges :
- "Father's Day" with Anything Goes Challenge,
- "Transport" with Simons Says Stamp,
- "Male Theme" with Polka Doodle,
- "Man or Boy" with The Sisterhood of Crafters
and "Masculine" with Creative Creations.

I have also made a tag to match the gift bag I made the other day...


Recipe : Papers from Anna Griffin - Heart and shells : Dies from Marianne Design - Image : "Gabrielle Ray - Vintage Photos II" set from Nicecrane Designs - Sentiment from Papercupcakes Stamps.

My tag will enter the challenges "Vintage" with Craft and Me and "Here Comes the Summer" with Craft Room Challenge.

And last but by no mean least, I have coloured a Vintage Shaped Library Card from Nicecrane Designs. I love reading and I visit my local library regularly. The book I am reading right now is "Labyrinth" from Kate Mosse. The library card will remind me when I have to return the book and I can use it as a bookmark too !


Happy Crafting !
