So this little bag has been all over the internet, it makes an old girl proud ya'll liked it so much. Heck, it even won a contest at Stampin' Up!, unfortunately for me someone else sent it in…ha! I played around with some new paper, and made a couple new ones. I also made a shabby chic feminine one but I submitted that to a magazine, so I don't want to put that on here….just in case.
But these two turned out so cute, and with Halloween just around the corner, you have time to make a couple. This bag is the regular size that I did on the original Box in a Bag Tutorial although now with our handy dandy scallop punch I used it instead of the slit punch.
But for this taller bag I just increased the Designer Paper to 9" tall instead.
But the rest is the same as the tutorial.
I am so loving the Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper.
So I have the TV on in the background and the show "Wife Swap" is on, and I am thinking…where do they find these freaks? I thought I was a freak, there is a lady on there that all she does is scream…OMG!
I am posting Saturdays post a little early tonight (I do my posts at night for the next day) so I can get some work done. Oh speaking of posts, I had someone un-subscribe today, their reason was cause I have too many updates…I thought hmmmm….posting once a day is too many updates? If anyone else feels that way, let me know….I can totally only post once a week, if you're sick of listening to me!
Also if you want to be added to my email list, for monthly samples etc. Please send me your email address so I can add you. I hate to assume since you sign up for my blog that you want a newsletter too, so I have not added you to my email list. (unless you asked me already).
Thanks for stopping in!

Sue Farrant says
Hmm..she would like my blog…groan…poor deserted thing that it has been this month! 🙁
I love that you post every day and can only wish I had the time to stamp enough to be able to do that.
Keep it up! 🙂 Seriously..I mean it…I have connections!!! Hehehe..
Once a day isn't enough!!!
Ok, maybe the 1000+ unread threads in my google reader acct are saying otherwise… so maybe once a day is good enough…
Melissa Sauls says
If you only posted once a week, I would literally convulse then sit in a fetal position rocking back and forth from withdrawal.
Ok…not seriously, but you get the point! 🙂
No no no …. don't post once a week. Your blog is my morning giggle and of course stamping / papercraft inspiration. I am now going to send you an e-mail to get on your monthly newsletter.
PS… I finally got your card framed. I will send you a pic. It turned out adoreable.!
I'm with all of the above commenters … once a day is BARELY enough. I love your blog and humourous insights. I see so many similarities between you and Jacqui (love her!) and hope that some day we'll meet. Keep doing what you're doing!!!
I'm emailing as well to get on your newsletter list.
Jacki Montgomery says
Continue to post EVERY DAY! One of the first things I do every morning is check out your blog. I love it. Also, please add me to your newsletter group. I'd love to get it. Thanks for all your hard work.
Are you kidding me?? "I'll only post once a week" No you will not!! I love that you post every day. I want to try and post every day on my blog. All of your posts are awesome. Your tutorials are great and it's gives me my Diana fix for the day!
I'm sure the girl who unsubscribed is just too busy in her life right now and that was a personal decision for herself…certainly not one that must be inflicted upon every one else! And by the comments above – if you stop posting every day – there are many people who will be come physically ill!!!!
Love ya sis – Keep on keepin' on!
( I borrowed that from Gladys – ya know the one the Ellen calls every once in a while!)

Oh My Flippin Land!!!!!!!!! I'm getting a Gut Ache just thinking you'd post only once a week. I loved Melissa Sauls comment made me LOL.

Diana, in my mind you will always be the original creator of the famous Bag In A Box — because that's where I discovered it for the very first time! It's no wonder it's so popular – it's attractive and easy! Love the tall version too!
Debbie McKelvey says
How funny we made these at Marlene's class last night and she linked us to your blog for the tutorial!! LOL I bet Jeannie W. never dreamed how far this little bag would go. I still have my chocolate paper one, it always reminds me of candy! LOL No, don't post once a week. We all enjoy your daily rants, I mean posts, yeah posts!!
I would be happy with even more posts!! LOL Your blog is fabulous and I get so many wonderful ideas from you! I made your great (bib)box in a bag for my stampers club and gave you full credit. I think you combine amusing stories with lots of wonderful SU ideas.
