Hello Everyone <3

Today I want to start by telling you that this is my first blogpost with the new collection, Home for the Holydays and I’m thrilled that I can touch and feel these lovely sheets <3


It’s me, Silje Kristin which will inspire you with three paper bags that I have decorated. The whole idea I got when I wanted to surprise a special person, with something I have close to my heart, my passion <3

I have decorated three brown paper bags and all the bags are decorated with pattern paper from the new collection, I’ve have used paper from the paper pad and the sheets 12×12. One is brown, the other is in red and the last one that stands a little out is blue.

Whoever, my favorite is the one in blue and it is also this one I made for someone I whant to have a special Christmas Eve <3

On the front of the bag I have used a image with a deer on.

The details around are pine needles, flowers, pine cones, stars, frosted berries and cheesecloth.

On the back side of the bag, I have placed two buttons, a bow in one and a flat dot on the top of the both buttons. Around the buttons I’ve used brown twinr to keep the bag close.

The one in brown, has much of the same details as the one in blue, but there are some differences.

The images on this bag is a girl in winter clothes, I have cut here out from a sheet with several image. The deer and the Santa Claus is from the same sheet.

The details are the same, just that some of them are brown. The flowers are from Wild Orchids, the needles was a Christmas decorations that I clippet in pices, so I could use it for this project.

On the back, you can se that the details are the same, here you can also see all the brown half pearls which I have attached in every corner.

God Jul is a dies from kaBoks, God Jul is the norwegian word for Merry Christmas.

The last bag and the one in red, I have chosen to make it with real Christmas Spirit.

The puch, you can see on all the paper bags are a punch from Martha Stewart, called Eyelet Lace.

On the paper bags and on the pattern sheets are all Distresses with Distress Ink Ground Espresso, I do this to give the bags a vintage Christmas / Winter feeling.

Now you’ve seen my special gift bags and I look forwars to being able to give away the other two for someone that means a lot to me <3

I wish you all a great sunday <3
