Paper Purse - Party Favors

Hi Everyone!!  I have a few projects I would like to share with you.  I created these paper purse with the Cricut Cartridge Forever Young.  I only used 2 of the many templates for purse on the cartridge.  The paper collections I used are:  The French Country Stack by DCWV, The Butterfly Garden Collection by Pink Paislee and The Black and White Paper Pack by Paper Studio.  I cut the purse on Fit To Page on the cricut, so they are the largest the cricut can cut on a 12 x 12 mat.  I used the following embellishments:

Beaded trim from Hobby Lobby
Flowers from I Am Roses, Spellbinders and flower trims
Laces where purchased at Walmart and Hobby Lobby
Butterfly Punch by Martha Stewart
Sentiments are from the paper collections

If you have any questions please ask.  Thanks for looking!!  Video coming soon!!

Also these purse are available for purchase on my Etsy store at the following link:

Wedding Card

Hi Everyone!!  Just created a beautiful wedding card.  I started off with white cardstock, then layered cream cardstock by Recollection.  After adding lace I layered more of the white cardstock but embossed it in my cuttlebug.  I then layered a dollie by Cheery Lynn Designs.  Next I cut out more white cardstock with my Spellbinders die then added a sentiment  to the top with the Fiskars stamp collection called All Around Quotes.  I stamped and embossed a heart from the An Affair of the Heart collection by Inkadinkado.  On the left side of the card I used three I Am Roses flowers, a white dove with glitter I purchased at Jo Ann's, and three flowers that I purchased from Michaels in the wedding section. I added Martha Stewart leaf punches, white feathers, and a resin corner by Recollections.  I tied a bow using white satin ribbon and used a garment pin to attach a small cherub.  I painted the cherub with white acrylic paint and rubbed rub and buff with my finger over him to give a vintage look.  I had a really fun time making this card and I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!!  Video below!!

Here is the video, it also includes a suitcase project that I entered in the IAR Color Challenge (I actually entered the card and the suitcase for the challenge)  for June. Hope you enjoy and if you have any questions let me know.

Gorjuss Girl Card

Hi Everyone!!  I created a beautiful Gorjuss Girl card using the Kaiser Craft paper collection Chanteuse.  I first started off by using Recollections white cardstock, then layering the design paper.  I printed the columns on my computer using a software program called Printmaster.  I colored the Gorjuss Girls hair, face, socks and shoes using my Spectrum Noir markers and paper pieced her dress.  I used the EK Success paper punch in different sizes to create the pretty flowers on the card.  The leaves on the flowers, the flourish, and the olive branches were used from the Cheery Lynn Design dies.  The sentiment comes from the paper collection.  The bow ties on the columns are from Martha Stewart as well as the butterfly.  At the top corner of the card are Recollection half back pearls.  Behind the Gorjuss girl stamp is a Spellbinders die and another Cheery Lynn dolly.  If you have any questions just let me know.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
