Kort & Godt.

I've used Spellbinders - Nesting Circles to cut out the image, along with a round Multi Frame from Nellie Snellen, and a couple of edge punches from EK Suksess.
The seem around the the panels are made with my sewing machine.


Recipe:
Size: 15 x 15 cm

Sketchy Colors Challenge #27

A new month, a new sunday, a new sponsor - Sketchy Colors is ready with Challenge #27!!!
This time we want to see projects in the colors of green, purple/lilac and white :)
This month we're so lucky to have Scrapmagasinet sponsoring us with some pretty great prices, so head over to Sketchy Colors and take a look :)
Remember to take a peek at the great work the rest of the DT did this week too :)

I've made another easy-made treat bag - just panels of papers on a white paper bag :)



Recipe:
Size: 10 x 15 cm
Ink: Archival Ink - Coffee, Distress Ink - Dusty Concord & Bundled Sage, VersaMark - Watermark Ink.
Stamp: Norsk Stempelblad AS - text from sheet 25b  - In english: "May the sunshine fill your day from dusk til dawn".
Papers: Kaiser Craft - patterned paper, 3ndypapir - Die-cut paper, Bazzill - green cardstock, sketch paper.
Tools: Martha Stewart - Heart Lace punch & ribbon punch, EKSuksess - border punch, Polyshrink plastic, Heat Gun, UTEE - clear, Glitter, Kort & Godt - magnets.
Embellies: Unik Hobby - ribbon, roses and rosebuds, Inkido - big flower, Prima - Mini Gypsos,
Kuttut - charm.
The image from 3ndy's die-cut paper, is embossed with clear UTEE.  When the UTEE was cold/hard, I' bended the image, so the surface cracked up like broken glass.
The backside panel is cut a bit longer than the front, and scored on the top to make a flap that closes the bag - it stays closed with hidden magnets.

I'm also entering this in to these following challenges:
Our Creative Corner - "Summer Inspiration"
Cupcake Craft Challengees - Challenge 93 "Summer Delights"
Papertake Weekly Challenge - "(Summer) Fun Fun Fun"
Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge #40 "Summer/Travel"
