Hi there!  It’s Melissa and this week I am going to share some quick and easy Christmas gift bags with you.
First up, you will want to gather your supplies:
I have pulled lots of Winter/Christmas paper scraps, some assorted ribbon, jingle bells, Action Wobblers, some of my favorite Repeat Impressions holiday stamps and a couple of Tootsie Rolls…a girl always needs a little sugar to help her when she is crafting :)
Stamp and color your images (do several at once):
Once your images are stamped, colored and cut out, set aside and work on some decorative panels for your bags,
here is a close up of one of the bags:
I used the Repeat Impressions Holly Santa #302-K and the Merry Christmas #1141-F to create my gift bags.  I stamped Santa in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored him with Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiment was stamped in the same ink and then I inked up the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.  I cut the decorative panels with dies and also edged them with the Brushed Corduroy ink.  Mr. Santa is on an Action Wobbler as he likes to dance. :)

 

If you would like to see him dance, check out this short video on YouTube:

 

 

Now, here are all of the gift bags that I made:
I hope I have inspired you to decorate some gift bags,
if so be sure to come on back and share them with us by leaving a link in the comments.
Have a great day,

Happy Sunday to you! I don’t usually post on the weekends, but we have a special announcement to make today. In case you missed it, we kicked off another wonderful blog hop here last Wednesday. The Repeat Impressions Rock Stars teamed up with the talented design team at Die-Versions for an awesome blog hop showcasing lots of great stamps and dies.

All their creations are fabulous… and wow, what a variety! There are too many to post here so I am sharing just a few to give you an idea. So to see the whole boatload of inspiration please be sure to follow this link to my ‘Anything Goes’ Blog Hop.

It’s still not too late to hop, but unfortunately it is too late to win. Many thanks to all those who participated and took the time to leave us so many kind comments. Both Repeat Impressions and Die-Versions each selected a random commenter from the hop to be awarded a $20 gift card from their respective companies. The lucky winner of the Repeat Impressions gift card is Diane Hover! Congratulations, Diane! To see the winner of the Die-Versions gift card please visit the Die-Versions blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will visit again tomorrow when RI Rock Star, Melissa Cash will be sharing her fun Project of the Week with us.

Until the next time…
