Book Gift Bag – Crafty Individuals New Stamps

Morning everyone

I hope you are having a great weekend.

Today I would like to share a small gift bag/box I made using the new Crafty Individuals Stamps “Better Than A Princess”.  This is such a great stamp on its own but the image combined with the sentiments in this set make it fabulous!  So adorable.

I would like to link this project to this weeks Craft Barn “People” Challenge.

Crafty Individuals Stamps Used:

Better Than A Princess CI 444

Just to share the other sentiment on this sheet is “Sometimes being a sister is even better than being a Princess”.  Isn’t that so cute!!

That’s all from me today.

I am off to sort out the cupboards and wardrobes.  I have been keeping clothes for ages in case I loose the weight that I have gained over the last couple of years but they have now got to go!!!  The clothes and the weight!!! 🙂  There is a local man who collects “things” and sells them for a pet rescue charity so I am feeling quite motivated to get the job done.  The big Autumn Clean!

Take care
See you soon.

  1. Florence, This is so pretty and such great colours. I have also managed to ink up some of the new stamps, the festive related stamps.

    1. Hi Lynne. Hope all is well. You know I thought of you when I saw the festive stamps. Isn’t that funny. Look forward to seeing what you make with them.
      Hugs Flo x

  2. Hi Florence,

  3. Anyone would love your gift bag . I have come to realize that my clothes shrink in the closet . That idea makes me feel better lol I have such a hard time parting with classic clothes but I’m also cleaning out the closets and drawers . It goes from one room to the other , but this time it is going into a bag and to charity .

    1. He he!! I like the idea of the clothes shrinking!! Yep, it’s time to be ruthless. It has to go to a good cause. Thanks Janice for calling in. Lovely to hear from you.
      Hugs Flo xx

  4. Hello Florence, what a fabulous stamp and the sentiment is so lovely. The gift bag is lovely a gift in itself.
    I think we all do the same with clothes, but the gurus say if not worn in a year, put it out. Mind you I keep things in case the style comes back, as it always does, but not as good as the original. Good luck with the clearing out, Kate x

    1. Thank you Kate, You know we think exactly the same. Anything that hasn’t been worn in the last couple of years (as per the “gurus”) has gone but I have put aside a couple of my favorite long skirts. They are not particularly fashionable but they are me 🙂 if that makes sense.
      Lovely to hear from you.

    1. Hello Ugly Bum, Lovely to hear from you. I made the box shape with a score board. It contains a book hence the title!! lol!
      Sending hugs to you in Greece.

  6. The colors on your project are just beautiful together! I recently did a big clean-out of my clothes closet and it’s so nice to be able to find things without them being squished together like before. Now, on to the bureau drawers!

    1. Thank you Valory, Lovely to hear from you. I have found a few things I had forgotten about!! lol! Oh, yes the drawers!!!
      Hugs Flo x

  7. Hi Florence. I love the bag and what a cute stamp! I often decorate gift bags to match the card when my kids go to birthday parties. Good luck with your cupboards. It will feel great when its done!

    1. Hi Tracey, Lovely to hear from you. Thank you for calling in. I always like matching cards and gift bags. Having the sort out is proving very therapeutic. Out with the old and in with the new!!!
      Take care, sending you all hugs,
      Flo xx

  8. The gift bag is like a gift in itself! It’s wonderful, Florence, and I love the saying, too.

    PS: Just seen that you are a member of DecoArt Blogger Program..
    I’ve received a positive reply from them too following my request to adhere to the program… But don’t know exactly what I am allowed to request as supplies maybe or if I can earn something by doing specific DecoArt posts?.. I have to investigate on this before entering fully into it. I would be interested by your feedback and feelings about that if you have a bit of time to reply to me maybe by a private mail or on FB? 😀 Thanks in advance, but don’t worry too much if you don’t have enough time for that.

    1. Hi Coco, Lovely to hear from you. Thank you for your lovely comments and for stopping by.
      I send you an email about the Deco Arts question. Just one thing. They projects I have made on this blog are not part of the program. I just love Deco Art Paints. I have used them for many years.
      Speak soon, Flo xx
