Artsystamper Challenge - Bags N Tags

 Hello my friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on the Artsystamper Challenge Blog where the team is showcasing digital images designed by Beverly Cole at The Artsystamper Shop!   The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month brings another Artsystamper Challenge and today's theme is:
 Bev has some wonderful holiday papers, images, sentiments so here's what I've created for you today.  You just never know at holiday time when you might need a gift bag to share maybe some home baked goodies or who knows what ... I'll be ready with this sweet combo!

 The set I used for the bag is this beautiful

My white bag is one I purchased at the local dollar store then created the panel using Microsoft Word10.   I measured my bag front and adjusted my page size in Word first.  Then I laid out my poinsettia and sentiment the size I wanted before dropping in my background paper and setting it to the BACK behind my images.  Next I printed it out onto a regular sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 white card stock and cut it down to the bag size (which was 7 1/2 x 9).    Lastly I used a white gelly roll pen and did a little faux stitching along the petals of the poinsettia for contrast.
 For my tag, I once again decided which tag die size I wanted to use on my bag handle and adjusted my paper size in Word before inserting my images.  I've used the same poinsettia paper for the background but for my Santa & Sentiment, I turned to the Sweet Santa Digital Stamp Set and used the precolored images.  Bev colors far better than I do ... lol!
 You do NOT have to use Beverly's images (of course we would love to see them if you have them) ... but you must follow the theme to qualify for the prize.  PRIZE you say . . .

YEP ... The winner of our challenges will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop.  Beverly Cole's selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-colored images for easy, last minute cards.  Why not take a moment and check out what she has in the shop!!  And there's more new images/papers coming in the weeks ahead!!
