Doin' It Up Birthday Style ~

I have a little fun combo to show you today.  Annie B, creator of the new template company Perfect Presentations, has two new templates debuting today - Bag It Up & Dress It Up.  She has honored me by allowing me to be on her new design team for Perfect Presentations, available exclusively from the Wildflower Patch store.  Thank you Annie!! 
See that cute little bag?  That is the new Bag It Up.  A sweet little size to add a few treats to.  For this combo, I thought I'd add a few tea bags or some hot cocoa...it all depends on the recipient's likes!  Here's a close up:
Bag It Up is super easy to cut out and assemble.  It comes in two versions - one that includes lines to cut out the handle and a window in the sides & one with no cut outs.  I chose the cut outs but omitted the window because I wanted to decorate it.  Remember to use some kind of strong tape like Scor-Tape or Red Line Tape to assemble templates.  Over time, these will hold your creations together better and help withstand the weight you put in the boxes, bags, etc.  Now here's the card that goes along with it:
I combined about 6 challenges on this one - Kraftin Kimmie Stamps {heavy metal}, Cute Card Thursday {use something new} I didn't make it in time for that one...oops!, The Pink Elephant {birthday card}, Crazy4Challenges {birthday card}, Quixotic Challenge {sketch} & JUGS {stitching - faux, hand or machine}.  Whew!  The little cutie on the card is Piper from the Moonlight Whispers line of Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I started her for last weeks challenge of paper piecing and just couldn't get my mojo going to finish in time - the story of my life lately!  Piper is colored with Copics and paper pieced with Basic Grey Blush papers.  The rest of the dp on the card is also from the Blush pack.  A little faux stitching on two panels and 3 brads in the upper left and 3 in the lower right corners to complete all the challenges!  Hope you like!  Now, please bop on over to the new Perfect Presentations Design Teams blogs to check out their fantastic creations!

Have a super duper day!!  I'll be back tomorrow with the new Sketch from Sketch Girl! 
Oh, and one more thing!  Do you know of Dustin Pike?  He has the most adorable images - especially for boys.  He is going to be the new illustrator for High Hopes Stamps!  How exciting!  The High Hopes Blog will be having a blog hop on January 20th with the new images.  So fun!  Bop over here for more info.  :o) lyss

Omg, 6 challenges in one card! *bowing* that's incredible!

I love love the colours you used for this set, the ribbon is my favourite shade of blue.

That little box is adorable, Annie did a great job with the template, and I really like the way you changed it from the window to a solid front :)
