Artisan Wednesday Wow - Starburst Circle Gift bag

  Welcome back to Artisan Wednesday WOW! Our hop this month will be full of inspiration from the new 2014 Occasions Catalog! Be sure to come back each week!
Today, you just came from Cathy Caines and next is Connie Collins, but before you come check out my "whatever" gift bag made with Starburst Sayings!

Really sorry for the delay in getting all the details on this post till today. It has been a roller coaster of a week so far. I am from the Atlanta area and if you have not heard, this area was hit with a major snow and ice storm on Tuesday. I left work in north Atlanta at 1:25pm and I finally got home at 12:30am! My daughters were stuck at their schools and my husband Howard walked a mile and a half there to get them and walk them home during the storm. He also fell down a steep hill resulting in a what we thought dislocated shoulder. After 6 hours in the ER today (Thursday), we found out it is a Stage III AC dislocation. Off to a specialist to see if treatment/healing or surgery. I am exhausted and prayers have gotten me thru this all.
Back to the project, I was putting together my Starburst Saying Stamp Set and instantly saw a pattern in the rubber remnants. I just placed the rubber on the bag and using my Stampin Up Markers placed the circles in a random pattern. Easy peasy!
My favorite item in the Occasions catalog is the Tag Topper Punches. Here I used the angled one which is perfect for any basic tag. I added the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper cut with the Banner Framelits Dies behind it. I colored the Calypso Coral Marker right over the Essential Wooden Elements arrow. Another bit of fun was taking some matching tissue paper and cutting it with the Fringe scissors. They are fun!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you and thanks for sticking with me this week!
