LUNCH BAG LIFE




When I saw this weeks 2 Sketches 4 You and Laura's challenge sketch my mind immediately though of a lunch sack card. So off I went to the art room and this is what I came up with. It took a couple of days but I think it was worth it. I decided to make this about LIFE.
I love the quotes on the inside. One says Don't ever save anything for a special occasion, Being alive is the special occasion. Another one says One of the secrets of a happy live is continuous, small treats. I used a lot of stuff to make this. The base is a lunch sack and then I added coregated cardstock over that. I used my cropadile to punch the holes through all the layers. The points on the corrugated part I make with my photo corners punch. There is a card that pulls out that I didn't take a picture of. It says my happy list to write things in life that make you happy. I will definitely be making more of these. I did make a book that was like this for my daughter's wedding guest book. It was a great hit so I guess you could say I am casing myself.

HOW DID SHE DO THAT?

STAMPS: Sweet Dreams, Priceless and LSS $1
INk: I mixed Riding Hood Red and Purely Pomegranate to get the right color and then Stazon on Black
Paper: Lunch Sack, Corrugated cardstock, Black, Whisper White, Wild Asparagus DP
Tools: Cricut, photo corners punch, retro flower punch, mat pack and punch, cropadile, tag punch
Embellishments: Various 3d flowers from spare parts, eyelash thread, twine, bottle cap letters, life themed stickers

I think that is it.

It's Wednesday!!! The half way point yipee!!!
Thanks for coming to my corner of the world....
