Hello Blogger friends!  I'm so excited to join in on the Loves Rubberstamps "Sensational Sunday" Blog Hop this week!!!

Here's my project to share for some Sunday inspiration...

This is a Valentine's gift bag I made using the Gift Bag Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers.  Laura has just stocked the store with all of these punch boards which are so popular right now in the crafting world!!! They are so versatile and easy to use.   I've been having so much fun with the 3 punch boards I currently have and can't wait to get the remaining 2!  The cute PI gal on my gift bag is called "Love You With All My Heart" by My Favorite Things.  She is so super cute!  I colored her up with my copic markers and paper pieced her outfit and heart she is carrying.  The paper collection I used is a fun one by Doodlebug Designs called "Sweetheart". I love this collection of pinks and kraft papers.  Behind this cute PI gal is a MFT doily die called Die-Namics Decorative Doily Duo.   I also used some scallop borders which are from a set called "Die-Namics Dotted Scallop Border Trio Die Set" also by MFT.  To finish off my project, I tied some pink polka dot ribbon around my gift bag and also added some cute small flower trim. 

Here are a few additional pics for you....

I didn't do any decorating on the side or the back of the bag for this project since I really liked the pink embossed card stock as is.  However, I just wanted to show you what the basic bag looks like using the punch board.  You can certainly decorate it more as desired and either add the holes or not on the top for ribbon threading if you prefer.  

Here are the additional supplies I used on my project:
Victorian Velvet -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Tuxedo-Memento Ink

Hope you all like gift bag and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
