Inkspirational Challenge 28 - Ladybirds

You say ladybug; we say ladybird depends on your side of the Atlantic,I suppose.

This week at Inkspirational Challenges  we have a photo inspiration and here it is:

I made the bag on the Silhouette Cameo - sadly only one of a handful of successful projects out of dozens of failed ones on this machine and I have had to send it back for repair. The cutting file is a fabulous freebie created by Bird. .The ladybird is made from a very old Accucut die. It's all very simple but I think it would be fun to put a small gift or treat inside.

Come and join in at Inkspirational Challenges!

Oldie But Goodie In the Garden  (the ladybird die and the spotty paper are very old!)

  3. What a sweet and summery gift bag Marina, I love the shape and the polka dots are so cheery! So sorry your machine has had to go away for repair, hope you get it back soon!

  4. I'm so sorry about your Cameo--that stinks! BUT, this is totally fabulous! LOVE the patterned papers you used and that it is NOT a card!!! HUGS to you and hope you're having a great week! :)

  5. Wonderful bag Marina and love the way you made the ladybird to match the backing paper--or was it the other way around lol

    Love Chrissie x

  8. What a fabulous bag Marina. The dots and the ladybird is a brilliant combination. I too didn't have much luck with my Silhouette so ended up selling it on Ebay and now I think I should have tried harder! Michelle x
