Girlfriend Treat Bags

While I am scrapping and chatting away at my scrapbooking weekend, I want to share these treat bags I made for my girlfriends this weekend. I received the SCAL software for Christmas and FINALLY had time to play. I got it all set up (had to update the firmware on my Cricut) and bought a bunch of treat bag templates from My Scrap Chick. I had so much fun putting these together.


I used the Springtime line from Echo Park and I loved the purple so I tried to accent the tags and front with purple. This tag was totally inspired by Dawn McVey. I've loved her blog and style forever, she was one of the first blogs I've ever followed. I love her stuff!!


I used some Smirk Peel and Stick stamps from PSA Essentials to make the front circle. I used all different girl stamps. It will be fun to decide which girlfriend gets which one!


The paper is double sided and I like how the inside of the bag shows the other fun patterns as well.


These were so much fun to put together. I absolutely love the SCAL software. It cuts templates perfectly, no more cutting templates by hand and having them NOT fit together because I can't cut a straight line to save my life. I will be using it more and more!!


I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!!!!
