Barbara: Exciting News

Craft Your Passion has asked me to be a guest designer for their blog for the month of April!!! I am so excited to be a part of this delightful team. I will be participating in their challenges and my projects/cards will be posted on their blog. I will also be commenting on some of the entries.

This is my first project: An envelope bag.
 This is called an envelope treat bag you can find the directions HERE. It is amazingly simple because Angie is so thorough in explaining directions. I thought this was a perfect holder for a package of flower seeds. I added some Easter grass and sandwiched the seeds in the bag.I paper pieced the image, added ribbons, swiped the scallops and the sentiment. Finally, I added the butterfly.

Image: Lauretta's
DP: Michael's
Embossed with Cuttlebug Folder
Ribbon: From my collection of treasured ribbons
Sentiments: Spring-G Stamp, Flower- TLC

The Theme this week at Craft Your Passion is Anything Goes. I hope I have inspired you to create a special project/card and enter their current challengeHERE. The details about this challenge and the winner's prizes are also listed on the main blog.
