Gift Bags!!

Hello All!
A quick post today to show you what I did during my Gift Bag class this weekend.  I decided to make a couple of bags for myself as long as I was demonstrating how to put them together.  While the class used the new Christmas Designer Paper, I decided to use some of my discontinued SU Designer Series Paper (just in case I goofed up demonstrating -- yiks, how awful that would be, but does happen on a regular basis -- LOL).  I just loved making these and I thought they turned out awesome.  Of course I picked some of my favorite discontinued paper for the person I am sending gift to tomorrow.  So I guess you could say, I got 2 things checked of my List Of Things To Do!!  (Gift Class and gift packaging for mail tomorrow).  Actually, I got quite a few things crossed off my list during the holiday weekend, besides being gone quite a bit. 

The automated Excel Customer and Demonstrator Workshop Forms template is updated with all the new products from the Occasions Mini, Definitely Decorative Update, and Sale-A-Bration Mini.  The template is posted on Splitcoast Stampers in the Demonstrator Only Forum for download (can't have the customers sneeking a look can we). 

I finished all my projects for the Technique event this weekend (Ronda still has some spots open so go to her blog link on this page to sign-up).  I can't wait to show you what I did -- but you have to wait, SORRY!!  Now to get started on my swap cards.  I tried to today, but after cleaning up my studio, and getting all the supplies out for the swap card; I started to procrastinate.  I started doing everything I could but getting started on the swap card, as I knew it was going to be a challenge for me.  So I filed all the gook off my Adhesive Remover (ah, that was a real must do -- right!).  Then I decided to make gift tags for my gift bags, then clean all my sponges and daubers, and of course did my embossing trays that had a beautiful mixture of dazzling diamonds, colored embossing powders, and glitter in it (yes, I put the dust in a container Ronda to save).  So after organizing all my paper scraps, etc., decided I would start my swap cards tomorrow as soon as I get up, so I will be more alert and focused.  Yah, that will last until I finish my coffee.  Anywho, here are my gift bags -- I hope you like:

Can you believe this is holding over $100 of SU product!!

The card is actually pink but not showing in picture.

I love this one!!
