Crate Paper Confetti

For those who know me and my crafting style, you're probably well aware of my deep love for Crate Paper.  The last line I fell in love with was Oh Darling, and there have been others in between as well. But Crate Paper has two newer lines that simply made me SWOON..... They are Craft Market and this one - Confetti.  They are both SO sweet; and while I was in Minnesota, I bought both of these fabulous lines.  And when I say "lines", I mean that I literally bought every piece of these fabulous new lines - from the patterned papers to the stickers, chipboard and ephemera.  GORGEOUS!  I know I will be having a lot of fun with these new goodies.
I decided to use some of these deliciously sweet products on my project for this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  I decorated a gift bag with lots of the sweet little tags, flags, bits and bobbits from the line including these darling little flags and hearts.  I also added some baker's twine, a miniature clothes pin that I dipped in gold glitter, and a bow that I cut using a die-cut.  I wrapped the center of the bow with gold foil paper.  My scripture is attached to the bottom row of flags on the right bottom side of bag.
The gift bag itself is from the Kraft Outlet, as are the baker's twine and miniature clothes pin that I covered (on one side) with glue, and dipped into gold glitter.  I also added a couple pieces of vintage scotch tape from Vintage Street Market.  I was SO sad to hear that Vintage Street Market went out of business, and that you can't order this fabulous tape any more.  I guess I had better start hoarding what I have left.  LOL

I would really love to have you stop by and play along with us at Word Art Wednesday this week.  We have two AMAZING sponsors with us this week including The Kraft Outlet ($15 Gift Certificate) and All Dressed Up Stamps (2 images of choice).  We'd really love having you share your art in our Anything Goes challenges.

These are the challenges where I'm sharing my project:

Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday Linky Party

Classy Cards 'N Such - Challenge #95 - Colors and Patterns - I used LOTS of great colors and patterns on this project including polka dots, stripes, paisley, and a wide variety of great colors.  Nothing really "goes together", but it sure is fun.  I used baker's twine and gold glitter (both of which are sold at CCNS).
