Anything Goes

Hello there,

First, I would just like to say a big 'Welcome' to my new followers - it's great to have you on board my journey, I hope you find some inspiration amongst my projects.

I'm back today with a new challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week Julie has chosen the theme of


Now, this leaves the spectrum wide open - so thinking hats on and let's see what you can come up with, but remember it has to be for the guys in our lives.

Here's what I made for my DT inspiration this time ...

I made a little gift bag and chose a 'Bon Voyage' theme - perfect for a little 'going away' gift. This is made from one piece of A4 cardstock and has a series of folds to make the little bag. I decorated it with papers from my stash, including some die-cut book paper, lots of ink and some of my 'Timeless Journey' stamps designed by Sam Poole for Creative Expressions. It looked a little unfinished and I would usually add copious amounts of flowers or butterflies to fill the gap, but in this case I chose buttons for a more male themed look!

Here's a little look at the reverse of the bag too, with a space to write your greeting ...

I hope you can join us this week and can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

Happy crafting, 
Hugz, Jan xx
