D'arcy's Diaries New Releases

The two weeks since the launch of the D'Arcy's Diaries store has flown by and I can't quite believe it is time for a new release, but it is, so lets take a look at what's new in store this week.

I've had a little play with one of the images and these are what I have come up with.

This is a gift bag and matching card. The bag is basically a pinch bag, but I have added a flap over the top and a pocket on the front. I thought this would be a good place to put a gift card or a gift of money. The card fits perfectly into the bag and there is also room for a small gift.

Fabulous set Colette. Love the colours, the papers and the bag is just great.
The shape of your arched card is just brill. I looked at those dies but couldn't think what use I would get from them, but your card is making me think twice!
