A Stylish Gift


This Stylish purse is designed to hold several cards and makes a great gift for that fashionista in your life. If you are like me though, you will have a hard time giving it away! This is one of the kits available at StampFest. The kit includes the directions for this bag and the faux leather technique used here. While this one is a little more involved, the bag itself is  great  for a quick and easy project for holding a gift of several cards or other items. You will be making one bag and 5 matching cards. There will be some options to choose from on the Designer paper. The cost of this kit is  $15.00.





Keep track of all of the cards you need to send throughout the year with this spiral bound perpetual calendar with pockets. Each pocketed page has areas to keep track of who to send cards to during that month, as well as a nice place to store the cards and envelopes. This kit is $22.00 or $26.00 for a cloth cover.

Flight of the Butterfly

Flight of the Butterflies

This is another card from my pop up class. If I used this design again, I would probably add some paper piercing or embossing to the card base. I had already added my inside pop up piece, so I couldn’t do that for this card without starting over!

It is really hard for me to make a card without DSP or embossing, now that I have gotten addicted to both concepts!

The top note die cut is cut in half and used as a layer behind my focal image and the little corner piece has been embossed with a texturz plate and then punched with the Photo Corners punch. The flowers are stamped and cut out and then layered on leaves cut with the little leaves sizzlet die. There is a 1/4 inch punched circle added to the flowers

You can find the tutorial here.
