Top Note Purse

I used the top note and oval dye to create this cute little purse in real red and decorative paper. I used a magnetic circle to close the purse. You can see the pattern for the purse here I didn't have the circle scallop die so the oval worked just as well. I cut the patterned oval using the coluzzle. I plan to make these for graduation gifts and include a gift card inside. As soon as I get my Great Grads stamp set, I'll post another one using that set. Enjoy!

10-10-10 Workshop Projects

I held a 10-10-10 workshop last Friday night, and I thought I would share the projects we made. Perhaps you can join me at the next one. We used my new Big Shot, and I am anxious to continue experimenting with it. There are so many great things you can do with it. Enjoy the photos!

This one was inspired by brilliant ideas on Andrea Walford's blog
