Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

It's time for the September Blog Hop!











This is my first chance to participate in the monthly hop over at Papertrey Ink, and this is the little bag I designed to participate! The object was to recycle something from the packaging of your stamp shipment.










I chose to use the plastic from the box that the stamps came in to cover the window opening that the tea bags can be seen through. Here is a closer pic...



This was simple to make and could be used for favors, teacher gifts, get well soon...Endless possibilities. I love having little things like this on hand for a quick gift. Well, I will be blog hopping later tonight...Thanks to you for hopping by!




Details-Paper bag: Michael's, Paper: DCWV, Ink: Rubber Stampede, Stampin Up, Stamps: Papertrey Ink, Nesties and ribbon from my supplies
