Birthday Bag for Guys

Erin Lincoln. That rascally girl! She's always inspiring, endlessly creative, and so witty. It's a joy to read her blog and to have learned from her for years.

She introduced me to Papertrey Ink stamps a couple of years ago. I'm grateful! My husband not so much :)

For this project for the Papertrey Ink Bloghop, I chose to pay homage to Erin. I've always had a hard time with masculine cards and projects. She's taught me how to do a masculine project any guy would love to have. Hats off to ya, girl!




All products used are Papertrey Ink. That woodgrain impression plate is one of my fav products of all time. It's a must-have. Thanks for visiting my blog. See you again soon,

This IS a perfect guy gift bag & easy to make a matching card or To/From tag! I don't like anything remotely feminine for guys and you're sooo right about the woodgrain impression plate, as well as the this mat stack tag & the "argyle"! Fabulous project!!!

So Traci, you have a really great blog, so much so I subscribed to it. You have some really great ideas, especially all those cute gift bags. I have often wondered how to use clothespins like Mish does, but how cute to use them to close gift bags. I especially love those teacher gifts you made with the embroidery and custom tags. Really great stuff.
