I will be following her on her blog here to check what she is up to. Her talent has no equal. Absolutely love her and everything she creates. 

To make this set of 3 bags she used the Gift Bag Punch Tool, so clever! Below a list she provided with all the wonderful products she used to create these and some good tips to make these yourself.
