Cute Purses!

I saw a great tutorial from STAMPVAMP (Tonya) on how to make these great purses. She made it look so easy, I had to try them. This is what I came up with. I think I will make more of these for the craft show. You can watch her tutorial here http://http//

The only thing I did differently is I used my Coluzzle Circle Cutter for the handles instead. I used the extra piece of the 12 x 12 sheet to make 3 cards to put inside and a matching pen. Used my new Stampin Up! stamsp too.

I have had this paper I bought from Hobby Lobby when paper was 50%- so I think it cost me 25 cents. Check out Tonya's tutorial and try one yourself!

Got the Sewing machine out...

I thought I would share some of the cards I am making for the craft show in October. I was totally inspired to make these when I saw the stationary set Michell Wooderson made on her blog. She makes amazing cards. Check out her stuff here

The stamp is from an old one I had. I just cut it down to a 2 inch square. I used my nesties too.
I picked up the ribbon from Michaels. I am also trying to use some of my "stash" and scraps.

I love the clean, simple look for stationary. I hope you like them

Acetate Box Challenge

These boxes are so easy to make. I did the SC challenge box and am just not getting around to posting it. I used my Scor-Pal for the creases. I really have been giving my Crickut a work out this past few weeks. I am not usually a Disney freak... but when you have that little cutter doing it all for you, well... it's easy to get carried away.

Here's the directions for the box and the thread to see tons of beutiful designs!
I filled it with kisses.

What a crazy time! Kids are back in school and life still doesn't feel like normal (whatever that is)! ANYWAY... really going to try to make a go at this blog thing. I have been inspired by so many, and even get irritated when they don't update! I love to see what everyone is doing.

So here we go! Oh, I also signed up to be a STAMPIN' UP demonstrator. I should get my kit this week. I'll share when it gets here.
I will start with the most current stuff I am working and then share all the stuff we are making for the Holiday Craft Shows. These are jumpo paper clips you can get at Walmart. I used my Cricut for the Mickey top. These are for Michelle's Disney clip swap here
you can see what everyone else is doing too.

I made these a little bit different so I can attach a business card to the back. These will be cute to pass to potential SU clients.

Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment and let me know you were here.
