I used TAC's Kaleidoscope Girlz paper, some yellow cardstock and green ribbon. The inside pockets are 6-1/2" x 3-5/8" envelopes. I used scalloped scissors to cut off 2-1/2". I'm going to make this project with my youth groups girls later this week. I think they'll have fun making it!!

This is a 6x6 page that I'll be teaching to my Technique Club ladies later this month. I was searching the web for 6x6 layout ideas and was inspired by this layout. I love this color of green, so I decided to keep the same color scheme. I used TAC's 'Fancy Curls' and 'Family is Forever' stamp sets and did a little heat embossing with black powder. So elegant - I love it! This is a picture of my brother and I dancing at his wedding reception a year ago. Fun memories. :)

Cut your Miss Moxie paper as follows-
floral paper - one 2.5" x 4.5"
striped paper- one 2.75" x 4.5"
yellow with sunburts paper- one 3.5" x 4.5"
green paper- one 1.5" 4.5" and punch a circle with 2.5" circle punch and cut circle in half
purple paper- one 1.75" x 4.5"
Cut one inch off open end of paper bag. Lay bag on flat surface as shown in picture below. Fold in left side at 3.5" (the width of the base of the bag) and then fold in the right side at 2".
Use Violette Palette ink and flourish stamp from 'Spring Dream' to stamp edges of paper bag. Then use sponge to sponge edges of bag and all cardstock pieces.
Cut a slit in the yellow starburst and striped paper so that you can insert a tag later. I lay my paper on my paper trimmer to cut the slit.
Use the 2" circle punch to cut a half circle from the purple paper. Lay the purple paper on the outside front flap (refer to first picture of finished project) and trace the half circle onto the paper bag. Use the 2" circle punch to cut out area that was traced. You may have to use scissors to cut it out all the way. Adhere the half circle of green paper and adhere to the cut out area.

Here are a couple of cards that I've been working on for a friend.
I used TAC's Graphic Blooms for this set. The sentiment is retired, but I just love it so much! You aren't able to see in this picture, but I put Crystal Lacquer on the pink flower and it looks really cool in person.
