Easter Purse

Don't you just love this cute little purse? What I love most about it besides the awesome textured specialty paper is that awesome little clasp. It works better than Velcro, or mini magnets!

This little purse contains peppermints. It reminds me of going to church with my Grandmother on Easter Sunday. She always had peppermints to share with me and my sister so we would be quiet! I always remember my grandmother having hard candies to give us when we were around her. I guess we must have been loud quite often! LOL!

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Friends 24-7
Paper: Parisian Breeze Specialty Paper, Baha Breeze
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Whisper White Striped Satin Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware (Stylized Silver), 1/2" Circle punch, 1" Circle punch, Sticky Strip, Crafter's Toolkit, Crystal Effects (And don't forget the peppermints)

Stampin' Up! offers its demonstrator's a wonderful supply of templates and ideas! This little template was just one of those templates that brought upon some precious memories!

This little purse was designed for my Stamp By Mail subscription. It will also be a featured project in my Friends 24-7 class coming up on April 17th. You can view additional details on my Stampin' UP! website events calendar. And because I loved it so much it is a featured project for the Late Night Stampers Design Team that I have been creating for from January through the end of March.



Easter Wishes

Here is a card that I created today for the Late Night Stampers' Design Team. This is the first time that I had a chance to play with this new set, Soft Summer. You can view the whole set in the new Occasions Mini that will be available to purchase on April 1.

This is a strange card size, even for me! An Oops is never an Oops, right!? This is a unique card size of 4.5" x 4.25". Perfect to fit in a standard greeting card sized envelope! The fun thing about this card is that I created the scallop window with the Scallop Square punch. I've been using that punch a bunch lately to make windows! Just love it!
