Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 6: Day 5

Hello Peachy friends! Today is my last day as a Peachy Keen Guest designer. =[  I have really enjoyed it and I'm actually a little sad it's coming to a close.  My project today is for the LFIF challenge.  The challenge is "Think Spring" handmade gifts! I am already in the Spring mode, as you can see from my projects this week, so I was up for the challenge!!

I decided to create a gift bag for my BFF with another favorite Peachy Keen Stamp set...Retro Paper Doll Face Assortment. We are both always giving eachother crafty goodies we pick up along the way after one of us has gone shopping. It is usually stuff we find on a really good sale.   We usually just hand it to the other in whatever store bag it came from.  I thought this was the perfect opportunity to whip up a cute little bag for the next shopping trip.  I just know she will LOVE it! 


I used a black gift bag, layered it with some pretty embossed cardstock and ribbon, and a butterfly from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. The butterfly is cut at 3.71".  I thought that Retro face added just the right touch.  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE that face.  It is fun to color, too. It's like you are putting on her makeup! I used my Spica glitter pens for her eyes and lips and a little chalk for her cheeks.  I added some white fabric thickers for a little extra POP!

Don't forget about the giveaway! Just leave a comment on any of my posts this week here and/or my blog Scrappin With Kimmy for a chance to win the Laughy Taffy Face Assortment.  I will choose a random winner TOMORROW morning and post the winner at the end of this post and on my blog.  Good luck!

Thank you all for all of the sweet comments this week. I loved reading all of them! I would also like to thank the sweet folks at Peachy Keen Stamps for having me as their guest designer this week.  I feel so honored to even be a small part of such an incredible stamp company!  I hope that you found some more uses for those adorable Peachy faces!

Peachy hugs,
Kimmy
And now...time for the giveaway!!!
And the winner is...
