Here Comes Spring - Cricut Everyday Pop Up Cards, Artbooking, Cricut Expression

Hi Everyone - Are you ready for Spring??  I know I am - I'm just praying that we don't have any bad storms around here this year.  Well, last weekend, Mom and I went shopping at the mall at the Dillard's BIG sale.  I found something that I think my boss, Jean, will love for practically nothing!!  So as a little surprise, I thought I would decorate a gift bag for Spring and give it to her tomorrow.

I decided last week that I was going to start trying to use some of the scrap paper of which I have a ton!!! So I found a gift bag that was given to me previously and used all scrap paper to make the flowers for the front of the bag.  

Using Everyday Pop Up Cards, I cut out the planter and flowers at 6".  I popped the yellow tulips and the red centers of the orange flowers to add dimension.  I used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the word "Spring" at 4".  

I think the gift bag turned out really cute and I hope that Jean will like her little "Spring Surprise" in the morning.  

Thank you for stopping by - we appreciate all your visits and all your comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
