MANY, MANY PURSES...

My daughter, Krystal Kennard, is a THIRTY-ONE CONSULTANT, and is the reason I've added a bunch of purses, totes, caddies, wallets and bags to my personal collection! But here's one I made myself with paper and a little imagination...

5

The handle makes it unique from some of the other paper purses you may have seen...

5-2

And the handle twirls to the side so the purse may fit into an envelope...

5-3

The inside greeting is on White Vellum Card Stock...

5-4

The Vellum is adhered only along the top edge, like a Hallmark card...

5-5

This greeting from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set is FREE with a $50 order...

A LITTLE BIT MASCULINE...

 

The combination of colors, papers, ribbon and style of this card turned out a little on the masculine side...

3

The Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper has a pattern that repeats every 5/8", so I cut all the strips that same width and wove in and out with Soft Suede Card Stock strips to make the checkered background...

3-2

The Natural Trim Ribbon is truly a natural for a masculine card.

HUMMINGBIRD HAPPINESS...

My husband and I have reached the age of retirement and are enjoying the most simple pleasures, like watching birds around the feeders that hang from our patio pergola. My most favorite are the hummingbirds...

In Pursuit

This hummingbird silhouette from the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set, and the hummingbirds on my patio, inspired me to make this whimsical card...

The name of the greeting stamp is PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS!  (Well, of course it is!)

I used one of the FREE stamps on this card...

This JUST BECAUSE stamp could be used for many occasions!

(I love this greeting!)

Picture2

I used the new Natural Trim Ribbon for the beautiful weave

Here's a Sneak Peek at the Vintage Verses Stamp Set...

It's FREE from Sale-A-Bration!

DESIGNER NOTE:  Even though I enjoyed weaving the Natural Trim Ribbon to make this card, I wouldn't recommend it for a workshop because it is too time-consuming. However, if you are sitting in front of the TV, watching DOWNTON ABBEY, anything goes!
