I have been a bit quiet on the old blog of late, life just seems to keep getting in the way. Today I have aside some time to get my photos off the camera and onto the computer and then the blog. It was a toss up between that and housework, so you can see what won. Here are some packaging examples I have made recently to hold items purchased by friends from my website, any excuse to create, right!

This bag uses the Harvest berries stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink, with the addition of a flower punch. I originally just stamped it on the bag but the bag was slightly glossy and the ink wasn't drying properly despite using a heat gun so I gave up and used the dies cuts instead.

This bas uses the Fabulous Flourishes stamp set from Papertrey Ink, MFT flourish die, Stampin Up framelits, butterfly stamp and punch. The antenna on the butterfly is from a butterfly die by Memory Box. The sentiment is from a set by Flourishes. Flourish seems to be a recurring theme on this one!

Third and final example for today creating a Papertrey Ink clean sweep, because this item was stamped with their Rosie Posie set. The small white flourish is from their Fabulous Flourishes set. The leaves and wreath are Memory box dies.The Crumb Cake base for the wreath has been cut with a Stampin Up framelit. Last but not least, a fab stamping set just for paper crafters from Woodware.
