Quick Altered Canvas Bag

So I'm totally in love with these cute Canvas Bags that Studio Calico packages all my little goodies in.  I've been collecting them so I can alter a few for Teacher Appreciation week.

Tonight when I came home from work, I had my Studio Calico box waiting for me.  When I opened it and saw yet another canvas bag, I stopped what I was doing and quickly altered one.  I'm meeting a local friend tomorrow and knew I wanted to give her a few goodies so I quickly made this.  It literally took me twenty minutes to put together.

The supplies I used:

Canvas bag from SC
Glitz Chevron roller stamp (gosh I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!)
Hero Arts Ink (Tide Pool)
Ali Edwards stamps
Prima packaging (for the tag)
Prima resin flowers
Heidi Swapp Gold mist (sprayed the bag in a few corners. Since I sprayed it in a box, I dipped the tag into the paint and since it was corrugated cardboard, it gave it a cool effect.)
Basic Grey flower
Wood clothespin (to hold the tag)

Project Life update coming soon!!!

Hugs, T

HELLO ♥ HELLO ♥!!!!!

Yes I'm here!!  Although the past three weeks have been full of trials, I'm here and very grateful!!!  God is GOOD!!!!  We've had a couple of ER visits, sprained ankles, flat tires, migraines, keys locked in cars and lots and lots of nebulizer treatments, etc. but I've kept on smiling :)  If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen it all lol

Anywho, I'm caught up with Project Life through Week 8 and almost complete with Week 9.  In the upcoming videos and blog posts of my Project Life pages, you will see our "Life".  I love documenting the little moments, and even though they are not all happy/good ones, it truly is what life is all about.

I wanted to make a quick post today sharing a sneak peek of Week 9.  I think it's been one of my favorites so far.  Every Sunday, I gather my pictures, bring out my PL planner and plan the pictures for the week. This past Sunday was no different. I was making 8x10 collages of my pictures and thought...."now HOW am I going to use these pictures with all these crazy colors" LOL I never really have this problem as one or two colors ALWAYS stand out and I go from that......Not this week!!!
Well, one picture caught my eye and it was one of my daughter wearing a light teal blue color shirt with grey stripes. I printed that ONE picture in color and the rest are black and white.  I knew I wanted to use all my grey & teal colored cards in the Studio Calico Project Life Feb kit (or at least a lot of them) and this was the PERFECT opportunity to do so.

I will have to do a two part video for February PL because I have the last week of January and all of February to share.  Stay tuned for that soon.

Hope everyone is having a blessed week!!!
Hugs and blessings, T
