The card above is made with the Scallop die and is similar to the inset in the scrapbook page below. I originally saw a similar card at convention made by Shelli!
This card was made by using the squares from the scrapbook page below. I hope you can see how easy it is to make a scrapbook page using card elements. Having both card makers and scrapbookers in my monthly workshops has been a great thing for me to develop designs that are doable as a card or a scrapbook page.
Last picture comes from a purse made from a pillow box and a top note die cut. I can't believe I even questioned the purchase of my Sig shot! I love this tool! This purse idea came from a stamper I met this week end in york PA. I wish I knew her name so I could give her credit. Her sample was so cute I came right home and made one for myself!
Paper is Designer series papers Haiku and patterns in Baha breeze. So simple and decorated with a dyed pretties flower and felt flower. To make the handle of the purse I used a bayou blue ribbon and punched two holes at the top of a folded Top note paper. I then slipped in the ribbon in between both layers and knotted the ribbon so it would hold as the purse handle. Using mono adhesive I glued the fold at the top and then adhered it to the purse.
I also used the punches three hostess set and Baha breeze ink, and punched a pumpkin Pie square to highlight the sentiment.
Thanks for looking Virginia

This was a card I made for a birthday recently I just love the new in colors especially Riding Hood red and Baha Breeze. Th card is a pocket car it starts with a 4 1/4 x 11 " piece of Riding Hood red. I fold that piece in half and using the border punch I cut a scallop edge. Fold down on the side of the scallop cuts. stamp the flowers from Eastern Blooms using Riding Hood red ink. Cut a strip of white ribbon and tie off in the front. Stamp and cut a flower. Curl petals using a pair of scissors and attach over bow. Cut a piece of Baha Breeze 4 X 5 1/4. Using a corner rounder trim all four corners. On a scrap of whisper white stamp one of the smaller flowers from eastern blooms in Riding Hood red ink. Punch out using 1 1/4 inch punch. Punch out a circle from Baha Breeze from a 1 3/8 inch punch, adhere to first circle and attach to card. Stamp sentiment at the top. Thank you for looking Virginia
