Birthday Fun …

OMG, I can’t believe I finally finished my project. I wanted to create a birthday class for my clients. Hopefully I can get this launched by mid-April.  After my exam last week, all I did was plunk myself into my stamping room.  What a great feeling to be able to do this full-time.  I only wish I can do this … not.

The purse was based on Becky Roberts‘ Template “Purse-onally Perfect Notes” and used the Crazy for Cupcakes and the Sock Monkey stamp sets together with the Thoroughly Modern DSP.


Here is a comment from Becky Roberts:

“Oh-Magosh Liz!  This is fantastic.  I am having the best time seeing all these purses and I LOVE the addition of the little pen!  Great work!!”

I will show you these individually below.

As indicated before, this is Becky Roberts’ purse template.  I attached a mini matching pen to the side of the pocket.  Inside will have a post-it note for them to write a message.  The centre piece of the clasp, I used the BOHO punch and added a brad in the centre.  The semi-circle cut took me forever to figure out and have the cut cut perfectly from the our circle cutter.  At first I couldn’t see the cutting line, so I finally took my marker pens and drew along the lines.  I marked it at 6″, 5″, 4″ and 3″ in blue.  This gives me a rough ideas as to where the cutting blade will lie.  I hope this helps for those who have the circle cutter.  Also, I placed a white tape behind the ruler so that I can see.

Back to the cards.

Card 1 - stamped three balloons at various angles. I then paper piece each balloon and added the sentiment.

Card 2

Card 2 - water colored the image, add crystal effect.

Thanks for stopping by, and please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment.  I like to hear you.
