When I sat down to create something for today’s blog I was stumped. I had been reading for a while and had a hard time getting focused. What I usually do when that happens is go to my designer series paper and pick something that catches my eye and work from there.
What I discovered tucked between to organizers of paper was an unopened set of the Painted Blooms designer series paper. Oh. My. Goodness. I felt like a little kid. I have loved this set so much and have used a ton of it.
Since it will be retiring with the spring catalog, I got really bold. I opened it up and took out my favorite pattern. The first pack I had I treasured this pattern and had the hardest time cutting in up. So, I just went for it. I used one whole sheet and made a beautiful gift bag to showcase it. It was quite liberating. Good thing there is two of each pattern in a package. I can still treasure the last one. Maybe I will do like others have and frame it.
I didn’t want to cover up one bit of it with a tag or any stamping. So, I went a little crazy with the seam binding ribbon. How perfect is this gift bag!
Have a creative day!
