The bags are so cool!! And your little touches the the crowns made them much prettier.


Wow I just love those bags!! Glittery and crinkly:-) By not finding what you were looking for you ended up with definite one of a kind designs. I think it is more fun that way!
Hope you have a great weekend


You are my artsy hero :) Glitter & crowns... heavenly


Aren't you the clever one? You do have the artist touch.
I needed a stamp and made it out of a foam sheet. Cut out the shape (crow) and glued it to a piece of glass.
Hoping next year I will become a bella. Terri


Very bling-licious! Don't you love the Martha glitters? I'm not sure what stickles are yet... sheesh, I'm gone for not nearly a year and all these fabulous new products come out.


Karla, I got my bottle yesterday. It is just beautiful. I think I'll leave the pumpkin wrapped up for now....my 3 year old. That's so funny about the bags...that was my suggestion to her..to give you some for SB. :) They look great.

I think your bags are turning out beautifully. What is stickles? I am always on the lookout for good glitter products.


Loved seeing what you've been up to! I like the way the "dyes" made the bags look, and of course the crowns are the perfect finishing touch. I'm getting ready to photograph my vintage aprons for "Show & Tell Sunday", while the light is still good......
Have a Good Day!!

Ooh those bags turned out beautiful and I guess they smell good too! I have a tag from Lori Karla that smells like vanilla coffee, awesome. Ooh the more I see the more I am looking forward to see all your pictures from Silver Bella. Btw I sometimes wonder whether you have the most glittery house in Kansas. When I am working with glitters everyone and everything here looks glittery. But we like that! Have a nice sunday!

It's amazing what a can of spray paint will do! I love to spray paint... Those bags turned out really nice. Silver Bella sounds like alot of fun, maybe someday I'll get there!

Do you ever run out of steam, Karla? The bags are really neat. You will do fantastic at Silver Bella. You have a great weekend.

How positively diva-ish! luv, luv, luv the bling bella bags!


Oh my heavens, I was just over @ Beth's blog, and couldn't imagine what to do with the bags. I love, love what you did! super cute, and fun to make, I'm sure! I have never thought of mixing cranberry tea w/regular, but I love pink, and would love the outcome as well....great idea!


Isn't crafting just the best!!! I do think things turn out best when you have to "make do" your bags are great! Laurie

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Beth sent me two bags and I've just been picking them up and putting them back down. You really turned yours into something pretty. I'll have to go look at my bags again and see if you've inspired me!


I am so excited for you to go see all the bella deliciousness. The bags are wonderful and I never thought of spraying items with a metaLlic silver paint. Thanks for the visuals!

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! I am so excited I got this crown!!!!! I love it and cant wait to get it :)

I LOVE those bags and the crown charms Karla! You are so awesome, you make everything beautiful :)

Love you!

I love the fairy.

These bags are incredibly beautiful. If I were going to the Bella event, I'd want to buy something, just so I could end up with one of your gorgeous bags.
I love these, your crowns, bottles and everything you've glittered. I have had about 50 vials of glitter for several years that were clearanced out and now I've been inspired to get them out and put them to good use. Thanks!


Great bags and I love the glitter crown charms!
