Purse & Cards Gift Set

1/22/20 Winner at Creative Moments!

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having an awesome day! I’m super stoked to share my Ephemoire inspiration project with you this morning. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!

I was provided Art Memories #1 and Art Memories #2 letter-sized digital papers to play with this month, and created a pretty purse gift bag filled with 20 cards. What a fun project – and a gift that keeps on giving, lol! Whoever receives this gift set will be able to re-use the gift bag once all the birthday cards have been used. ;)


I used the blue damask type print for the purse, and added paper flowers, a pearl spray and some bamboo cord tied in a bow to the front. I used pearl brads attached to punched squares at the base of the handles.

There are five papers in each of the two collections so I created two cards with each paper. The birthday sentiment was computer-generated, punched with an oval punch and adhered to a fishtail strip.

Here’s one more look at the set… I’m very pleased with how this turned out! Now to decide who gets it… hmmmmm… ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
