Last night was hostess club. Here is a peek at the projects we made! The card is a 3x3 gift card. Don't you love that purdy hat? I stamped the Mimi cardstock with the big lace from Beautiful Lace in VersaMark Dazzle. The hat, also from Beautiful Lace, is paper pieced with More Mimi SWIC paper. I colored the roses pink and green with Copic markers. I used Nestabilities Scallop Circle Lg and Standard Circles Lg.
The project we did was one from Michelle McDaniel's class at TAC's Seminar. Isn't that the cutest little purse? I am not sure about the photograph, it was kind of hard for me to get a good picture.
The purse is made with More Mimi SWIC pattern paper. I love the double sided paper for projects like these because you actually get to use both yummy sides!
I used Labels 5 Nestabilities to make the flap for the purse. I cut the flap and pocket from TAC's brown cardstock. It's a rich dark chocolate brown that has a nice weight. Loverly cardstock. The flap is embellished with a Bitty Blossom, button and acrylic gemstone. The leaves are punched from More Mimi with a SU! punch.
These little purses are so easy and quick to make. I plan on giving this one with it's little gifty to Violet's bus driver. Violet just loves taking the bus for her summer reading program. Her bus driver is a nice lady. I hope she likes the purse. I see myself making bunches of these.
Oh wait, you want to make one too? Ohhh. Well you should have joined my Hostess Club! It's not too late! I am looking for groups of 5 to rotate hostess benefits. Come stamp once a month with other crafty ladies making projects like this. You'll get the brand new TAC catty free as one of the many benefits to being a Hostess Club member! Email me if you need more information!
