I’ve been busy creating today so I’ll have some cute things to show you in upcoming posts.

doublepocketbagwithcardI have a few workshops in the upcoming week so had to get busy preparing for them! One of my beautiful hostesses asked me to show them the CropADile and the jumbo eyelets so who am I to say no??  So this is what I’ve made ….

I have made these double pocket bags before but never in ‘dude’ or ‘autumn’ colours and since it is now Autumn here I thought I’d go with the Outlaw Designer Series Paper since I have a bit of this still and only a few days left till its retired.

I am VERY happy that Lovely as a Tree has not been retired (insert cartwheel) as I just love this set so much and its so very versatile! Although i do think this is the first time I’ve used the large oak leaf as the main image. rustoakleafcard4doublepocketbag

I’ve just randomly coloured the leaf with my markers (Really Rust, Mellow Moss and Pumpkin Pie) and stamped it onto Naturals Ivory I’ve then stamped it again on another piece of Naturals Ivory so this second image is a little faded and the sentiment I stamped over the leaf for the card is easier to see. The sentiment is from God’s Blessings stamp set which has great sayings for any occassion and although the set is called God’s blessings the sayings arent all overly religious so it makes a great all round sentiment set.

Here is a close up of the little gift card – which measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and fits perfectly into our bag so it can be slotted into one pocket and you could pop a gift card, voucher, small chocolate bar or sachet of  coffee in the other pocket

Now have you noticed what ribbon I’ve used on this card??

Yes we will have 1/4″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon back in the new Idea Book & Catalogue – how good is that?? I know a few of my customers have been asking for it to come back so their wish has been granted!

It is so wonderful to work with a company that actually listens to their demonstrators and customers!

Hope you like this litle duo and if you’d like me to show you how to make this bag then contact me to arrange your demonstration or put your name down for my upcoming Bags, Boxes & Bows class.



  1. Yay for the return of the quarter inch chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon!!! Love the work too of course – must make one of them some day!
