MCS Challenge - Fall Gift Bag

Good morning! Popping in to share a project for the newest challenge at My Craft Spot! I made a gift bag this week: 

This week is a Pinterest Inspiration - LOVE this image! I just want to jump into ready for fall!

I used tons of goodies from My Craft Spot on my gift bag, and a couple of cuts from my Silhouette Cameo as well. I started off by cutting the jar with Jar Basics metal die out of blue cardstock and vellum, then stamped the jar using Jar Basics stamp set. also added a water line with Jar full of fall stamp set, then inked with some distress ink, before layering the two pieces together, tucking the wheat that I cut with my Cameo in between the layers.

The pumpkins were cut with my Cameo, and I added some pattern to them with Pattern Blocks stamp set and some Hero Arts inks. I also wrapped some Natural Jute twine around the jar, tied a bow, and added a little bling I got from Michael's recently. The label on my jar was cut with Tickets Metal Dies, then I applied some distress ink and stamped my sentiment from Thank You Stamp set with Hero Arts ink.

I splattered some Mister Huey's white mist on my kraft bag, blotted with some plain paper, attached a row of lace trim, and added my embellishments with foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

    I got my order in the mail right before vacation. I had a hard time leaving them in my craft room when I left....I wanted to rip into it so bad! We just made it back and trying to get myself in a routine going on vacation but always hard to get back in the swing of things! Hopefully can get in my craft room this week!
    Beautiful project Heather!
