Guest Designer- The Greene Family & Crafts Day 1

Hello Everyone!  My name is Jamie from The Greene Family & Crafts and I am your Guest Designer for the week.  I am so excited, this is my first time Guest Designing and I really hope you enjoy the projects that I have made to share with you this week. 

For today I have made a really simple goodie bag.  I am a stay at home mother to 3 amazing kids and so I enjoy making little things for my kids.


I took a plain brown lunch bag and covered the front of it with pattern paper.  I found an older Making Memories sentiment to use along the side of the goodie bag.  I cut the adorable paper doll with my Cricut.  Now here comes the fun part.  I wanted to dress the doll for Halloween so I used the Cottage Cutz Pumpkin trio die for her outfit!  I die cut the same pumpkin twice so that I could layer the middle and add some dimension.  I used one of the other pumpkins to cut the top off  and use for a hat.  I stamped her face using the Wide eyed kids face assortment stamps.  To finish it off I tied a bow around the top and added a Hinge clip from Tim Holtz. 

I hope you enjoyed today's project!  I want to say a HUGE Thank you to Peachy Keen for allowing me this opportunity to be a Guest Designer for this week!  As you know each Guest Designer is given the opportunity to do a giveaway and I have chosen the Cottage Cutz Pumpkin Trio as my giveaway this week!



To be entered all you have to do is leave a comment Here or on my Blog.  I will see you tomorrow with another Halloween idea!

Jamie:)

Oh that bag is precious. I think I would keep it for myself rather than give it to my kids. LOL!
