Joyeux Noel Gift Bag

Merry Christmas everyone! Today I’m guest posting for A Jillian Vance Design, (they gave me the stamps to use) and I’m so excited to share this little gift bag! While it is a small bag, about 4 x 5″, it has plenty of space to hold good things! It would be perfect for gift cards, jewelry boxes, or candy!

Joyeux Noel gift Bag by Beth PingryI used a pre-cut tag, and stamped the little corner doily from the Daily Doilies Stamp and Die set, heat embossed with silver EP. I love how the intricate detail of the stamp shows when embossed!  I stamped Joyeux Noel, from The Holiday Zipper set. I actually cut the two words apart and aligned them on the acrylic block. The line of glitter is 3D Foam Tape. I tied it to the bag with some ribbon from my stash.

For the bag decor, I stamped, embossed and die cut the largest of the Daily Doilies and then cut it in half and adhered it to the top edge of the bag. If you wanted to seal the bag shut, you could use the complete doily folded over and adhered at the top.

It was quick and easy, yet sparkly and elegant! The only problem now is, I love it so much I don’t want to give it away!

Thanks for coming by today, and have a wonderful holiday!

I made a Paris themed canvas. I cannibalized a 5×7″ canvas…for the third time, it still had remnants of the first project stuck to the center. No problem, I just painted over it, and I think the mystery texture adds something! Then I added Glimmer Mists to create background color.

A few cranks of my die cut machine and voilà!

More A-Door-Able Cards!

I have a how-to tutorial for these A-Door-Able Cards on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Blog today.

Beth Pingry Door Cards

These were inspired by a post I did a while back, here…but you can’t see the card on that post because it has been published, along with 2 more cards I made!! Big puffy ♥s to CardMaker Magazine!

So this edition is from last spring, and I apologize for not screaming from the rooftops then, I had been buried in work at the time and hardly had time to come up for air.

The first is the original Red Door Card that was part of a Flourishes blog hop. The wreath is from a Flourishes Stamp.

The next one, and I’m not a ‘yellow’ person at all, just came together for a springtime door, with Flower Soft in the tussy mussy.

And the third, a white iridescent cover stock from WorldWin Papers, has embossed vellum in the center oval.


Sorry, it’s not the best photo, white on white is hard enough without the sheen, but you get the idea.

All the die cuts were from Spellbinders Nestabilities, and the cardstock from WorldWin Papers. Of course I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner.

I have soooooo many more door ideas, so stay tuned!

Thanks for coming by today!

Here are the supplies for the first Red Door image at the top:
