Artbooking in August- Birthday Gift Bag

Welcome to the final week of the Artbooking in August Blog Hop. Last week's artwork was so amazing and this week over 35 creative consultants are at it again!

Their challenge was to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  Their mission was to design each of the following:

1. 2 page layout 
2. Card
3. Mini Book 

4. Home decor or 'giftable' item

They were able to choose what to make and when to post it. AND if they wanted to add stamps to their designs, that was OK.  This week they will add another great design to the challenge and I am anxious to see what everyone has created!

If you have arrived here from Vickie's Blog you're on the right path.  Your next stop will be Linda's Blog.
Remember this is a circular blog hop and if you get lost or confused along the way, the list is posted on Adeline's blog here.

For my final project, I decided to use Artbooking to create a gift bag for a birthday present.  I have a bunch of plain Kraft gift bags that I bought as a set a while back, I thought I'd dress it up!  
Using Cotton Candy Cardstock, I cut an overlay from key "0" at 10", which was the height of my bag.  I then cut out the shaped image from key "9" in black cardstock.  I added my sentiment using the "happy" and "Birthday" keys.  A big Tulle bow on the handles tops it off well! 
 What's inside????  A Birthday gift for my daughter's Kindergarten Teacher :)  

The next hopper on our list is Linda's Blog. I know you'll be inspired by her and the rest of the hoppers!  HAVE FUN!!!
