Funky Birds Handbag

Hi everyone! It’s Saturday and I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I’ve been playing with my purse die set again and this time created a gift bag featuring some very fun washi tape, bling and a large paper flower from Eyelet Outlet – just in time for a summer or beach wedding or an anniversary! How fun would it be to tuck a gift card or cash into this little purse?!

For the front and back of the purse base, I covered the cardstock with Funky Birds Washi Tape and die cut the pieces. I then cut all the rest of the purse pieces from tweed cardstock and the rings from gold foil cardstock, and assembled the handles. I assembled the purse base and added White Pearl Bling Strips across the washi tape seams on the front and back, then attached the handles and the other purse pieces. I attached the three Paper Flower layers with an Amber 6mm Jewel Brad w/Gold Edge and affixed the flower to the front of the purse.

Here’s a shot of the back of the purse. I’m so loving how this turned out! I think it’s time to admit that I’ve become a paper purse addict, lol!

Happy Saturday eve, my friends! I’ve popped in this evening to share something I’m absolutely tickled about! I joined the Reneabouquets ‘Artists With An Edge’ Facebook group several weeks ago and have been ‘oohing and ahhing’ over all the beautiful projects being shared in the group! So I decided to join in and created a shaker box to enter in their August 2020 Moodboard Challenge! How gorgeous is this moodboard?! Green is my favorite color and I see some purple in the mix, so I went with a green and purple color combo!

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this was! I love shaker cards so I went one step further to make a stand-alone shaker box using Reneabouquets DIY chipboard kit, which is just the box. The possibilities for shaker filler are literally endless… mine consists of Reneabouquets beads, chunky glitter, microbeads, glitter glass and a chipboard gear.

I embellished the outside of the box with paper flowers and leaves, green bling, a green bow and a purple dragonfly. The small green flower, the small white flower and the large green flowers are from my stash. I inked the two large flowers (which started out white) with Tattered Angels Moss Glimmer Mist. I fashioned a triple loop bow from green seam binding in my stash.

Here are a couple close-ups:

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out!

Christmas Pocket Card

Hi friends! I hope you’ve had a great start of your week! I have a fun Christmas pocket card to share with you today. My inspiration came from my friend, Ginny, over at Polly’s Paper Studio. I watched her video HERE quite a while ago and made some notes, knowing that one day I would make one. Well, that day is here! Can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this was!

There are tons of layers and lots of elements on this card! Ginny made tags, however, I made a little Holiday Memories Z-fold mini album to tuck into the pocket… a little extra gift for the recipient. ;)

The pocket features a die cut doily embellished with a Santa Bingo card, die cut holly sprigs, and an assortment of flowers, berries and sprays.

I adhered a holiday sentiment die cut on the inside.

Here are some shots of the Z-fold mini album. There are three panels on the front side and three on the back side. Each panel is layered and embellished with square or circle die cuts and/or holiday elements, leaving lots of room for photos and journaling.

And one more look… I’m so loving how this turned out! Thank you for the inspiration, Ginny! ;)

Memories Mini Album

8/14/20 DT Favorite at World Wide Open Design Team Monthly Challenge!

Hi friends! I hope you had a great week! I have a very cool project to share with you today – a mini album made from envelopes! I’ve seen a number of these over the years in various sizes so I decided to make one. Super easy and lots of fun!

I used a 6×6 paper pack with a variety of pretty colors and patterns, and used my envelope punch board to make ten 3×4 envelopes. Any size handmade or pre-made envelope will work, and use as many envelopes as you want your album thickness to be. The flap of each envelope is folded backwards, tucked into the next envelope and adhered. The final envelope flap is folded over all the envelopes and adhered to the first one. Once the album has taken shape, adhere panels onto the pages that have an envelope opening for a more finished look. I inked the outside edges of all the pages with purple distress ink. I decorated the front with a pocket, file tab, paperdolls, gold glitter bracket, buttons and pearl embellishments.

I reinforced the spine with an additional strip of paper, then threaded twine and cord inside the spine and added a couple dangling charms.

I used a pocket punch board to make several pockets with tags that I placed randomly throughout the album. I added die cut stitched ovals and circles along with double-stitched ovals, rectangles and squares to the rest of the pages, leaving plenty of room for photos and/or journaling.

And one final shot of the whole album with pages fanned. Love, love, love! Will definitely be making more of these!

Summer Handbag Palooza, Part 1!

7/31/20 Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!
8/11/20 Top 5 at Try it on Tuesday!


Hi everyone! I’ve popped back in one last time this morning to share some more super fun purse gift holders created with the Concord and 9th Everyday Purse stamp and die set. I’ve had these lil pretties made for well over a month now and planned to make several more to go with them but just haven’t had the time. So I thought I’d go ahead and showcase these three with the promise that I will add Part 2 soon, lol! But how fun are these – aren’t they great to hold chocolates, jewelry, cash or a gift card?!

The papers are from Canvas Corp – I chose them because they are heavy but not too heavy, bright and cheerful, and perfect for Summer. The straps and other white elements are also Canvas Corp paper, and the rings are from Hygloss silver and gold foil cardstock. The closures on the green/white and red/white are half Velcro circles. All the purses differ just bit from each other. This first one has a flap closure embellished with a large pearl.

The next one has a ‘clasp’ closure and features a tassel, heart charm and a couple stamped tags, all attached with a tiny ball chain. I also added a few flat-back pearls.

And the last one doesn’t have a closure – it features an open top and looks the same from both sides. How cute would it look with a small piece of white or yellow tissue paper enveloping the gift inside like a typical gift bag?!

And one more peek at all three… totally loving how these turned out! And stay tuned, because there will be a few more to add to my Summer Handbag Palooza! ;)

Silver Glitz & Glam Handbag

8/18/20 Top 3 at Not Just Cards Challenges!

Hi, friends! Happy Monday – hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the Curious Metallic and Glitter cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a glitzy and glamorous little handbag to hold birthday chocolates, jewelry or a gift card! OMG, how stinkin’ cute is this?!

2020_0527001

I found this stamp and die set at one of my favorite online stores several months ago and could not wait to get my hands on it! I cut all the purse pieces from CCS Silver Glitter cardstock and Curious Metallic White-Silver cardstock. I also used Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock for a pop of red on the charm and one of the tags, and then to tie in that pop of red I used a few red flat-back pearls. I stamped both tags in red ink (tone-on-tone stamping on the red tag) and then heat embossed the sentiment tag with clear embossing powder over top the red ink. I had a small ball chain in my stash that I used to hang the charm, tassel and tags off one of the straps.

Here’s a shot of the back…

2020_0527003

And one more look… I love it so much I can’t stand it! And I can’t wait to make some more using different colors and patterns of cardstock. So fun!

Crafters canvas

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a good day! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #39 – Anything Goes + Open Technique! Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer an optional technique twist each month to get your mojo going! This month the twist is an open technique so you can use whatever technique you want for your project but just tell us what it is in your blog post. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten really inky so I created a mixed media canvas for my studio!

2020_0306001

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this was! I absolutely love mixed media and don’t do nearly enough of it. I guest designed for The Hedgehog Hollow back in March and received the March Subscription Box to create with, and used quite a few goodies from that box on this canvas. It’s an 8×8 stretched canvas that I covered with two coats of Gesso. I applied embossing paste over The Hedgehog Hollow ruler stencil, and once dry, I added pink, orange, purple and green shimmer sprays which were really vibrant so I spritzed them with water to tone them down a bit. When those inks were dry, I splattered the entire front of the canvas with slightly-watered-down Copic white opaque ink on a fan brush and then stamped with the vertical words stamp set from The Hedgehog Hollow pressed into the Copic white opaque ink, leaving all the stamps on the plastic sheet, which yielded some cool white blotchy illegible letters.

2020_0306002

I stamped, colored and fussy cut a pen, bottle of ink, bottle of glue, painter’s palette and brush, and tube of paint, all from The Hedgehog Hollow. I stamped sentiments (also from The Hedgehog Hollow) in pink and green ink and die cut them – and discovered that those inks aren’t waterproof. I somehow got a droplet of water on the green sentiment and was about to re-stamp it when I thought ‘nope, that just adds to the mess’ so I left it alone. I added a twine hanger constructed of three lengths of twine that I knotted every couple inches and attached with a screw on each side of the canvas.

I dug into my crafty stash and found several other items to compliment the stamped images and sentiments. Then the fun began… arranging everything on the canvas! I’m so loving how this turned out and can’t wait to hang it in my studio! Here are a couple more angled shots.

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! I’m super stoked to finally be able to share that I’m creating samples for Prickley Pear Stamps! I can’t even tell you how much fun I’ve been having playing with these amazing stamps and dies! I’ve created quite a few projects for an upcoming Hochanda show (yessss!) but have to wait until after the show next month to share, so in the meantime I’ll be sharing other samples that I created for the website. The project I’m sharing today is an adorable purse featuring the Blue Without You Bluebonnets clear stamp set which I paired with some pretty cardstock and a purse die set. How stinkin’ cute is this?!

I stamped the bluebonnets in black ink on white cardstock and then die cut all the purse pieces. I colored the flowers with alcohol markers and then assembled the purse. I added a large white flat-back pearl to the flap closure with Velcro on the under side. Super easy construction – with each one I’ve made, they’ve gotten easier to put together. I’ve made five so far and this is the first one I’ve blogged, lol! But stay tuned… you’ll be seeing the others soon! ;)

Here is a shot of the back and another shot from overhead. This little purse is big enough for chocolate or other candy, a gift card or cash!

And one more peek… I’m so happy with how this turned out! Another one to add to ‘My Paper Purses’ page!

Hi everyone! It’s Wednesday and that means it’s Huuump Daaay! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a fun exploding box (a box with a box inside) created with the FREE Simply Crafty SVGs Square Explosion Box cut file. And yes, I did say free – Sandy has tons of freebies in her store, so if you’re new to electronic die cutting or if you’re just wanting to add some cool cut files to your arsenal, check out the store!

I, too, went with a Christmas theme and used some awesome PhotoPlay papers. I had the tinsel wreath ornament in my stash so I cut off the ornament string and hot-glued it to the lid.

Yum treat box

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you’re having a good week! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today! This is my last post for the Happy Little Stampers Die Team and I’d like to thank Kylie and the rest of the crew for having me along for the last year and a half! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!


I created a super cute pink and white polkadot treat box using the Stampin’ Up Baker’s Box Thinlits. I cut three ‘yum’ sentiments from hot pink textured cardstock and adhered them on top of one another for a little dimension, and then added tiny dots with a white Gelly Roll pen. I used pink Silky Crush ribbon to tie the box closed.

2019_1213001a

Here are a couple shots showing the back of the box. Reminds me of a little milk carton. So stinkin’ cute! ;)

Here’s one more look… I love how this turned out and it’ll look even cuter with some Jelly Belly jellybeans in it, lol! ;)
