I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend! We have today off as well and are loving the long weekend! It seems that the crafting world is quickly switching gears to Mother's Day and "Mom's the Word" at Fantabulous Cricut!
I've seen a few people creating with the bag from Life's a Party and love the look of it. Unfortunately, I don't have that cartridge - but I do have a Gypsy and Design Studio so I got to work creating the bag myself, using George and Basic Shapes. The flap on my bag is a bit more narrow than the one of Life's a Party, but otherwise I managed to reproduce it quite well.
I created the medallion with Home Decor, and ran the white center through my Cuttlebug. The little tulip is from Create a Critter and I glittered the bloom. I used Pooh Font for "Mum". I also faux stitched all around the front of the bag. To finish things off, I added an eyelet and ribbon.
I will also enter this bag at Creative Cutter Room (where the theme is a Mother's Day gift with pink, ribbon, faux stitching and two different flowers) and at My Sheri Crafts, where we have been challenged to create a 3-D gift item.
Now it's your turn! Head over to Fantabulous Cricut and link up your Mother's Day project. Just make sure it contains a Cricut cut as well as Mum, Mom, Mother, etc.
