not exactly scrapping...

... but I got to use some of my scrapping goodies!! Kira is having a zoo theme birthday party this Sunday. We found plates and napkins and some goodies for the goody bags but no goody bags! So I found some plain green paper bags that I thought I could quickly stamp some zoo critters on and be done with. Should have known it would be harder than that!

The plain green bags were coated so the ink I was using would wipe right off. Well not all the way off but enough to make a big huge mess and not look so purty. And seeing as I was not in the mood to go driving off to ACMoore, Michaels or Joanns to pick up some of the correct ink (Staz-on) I resorted to heat embossing all my images onto the bags. It worked and came out pretty darn cute if I don't say so myself. LOL It took a bit of time to get it done. Not like I have anything better to do than to heat emboss designs onto 12 goody bags. On the plus side, I was doing it today and not Saturday night!! Woohoo mommy!

Here are some of the bags. I made four different designs and then the monkey images are the same on the back of all the bags. I used my Glaze pen to write each of the kids names on their bags. Not too shabby if I say so myself... and I do.
Of course the green in the pictures isn't correct. Well it is in the first one with the monkeys, the others are a sick looking green. Guess I shouldn't try to take pictures at night!!
