A few weeks ago, well actually months ( my time flies) I made a red purse for my daughter for her birthday. The neighbours little girl was here and said "I Want one". I then asked her when her birthday was and it was this month. I told he rperhaps she would get one for her birthday.
Time was getting close now and the kids were finally back in school ( I get nothing done with the kids out for summer break) I chose a pattern and then actually decided on this pattern instead. I altered it slightly, as I typically do. It is a small clutch/over the shoulder style purse.
The pattern I used was from Blue Calla - the Gerbera Mini Crossbody Bag.
I did not do the gusset bottom.
Inside I did a small zippered side pocket and added a little dragonfly charm to the pull.
The back is pretty plain.
She did get it in time for her birthday, unfortunately I was not there to see her reaction, but her mom said she liked it and so did she.
Have a creative day,

The sentiment is stamped in permanent Black ink. and then several hearts are added on pop ups to add dimension to it.
The tag is attached to the twine wrapped around the note page. A sentiment is also stamped in black permanent ink and another heart added to tie it all together.
I added sponged vintage photo ink around the edges of the elements except the hearts (oops).
Thanks for checking in,

I recently started making handbags. It is very fun to do and I have always enjoyed learning new craft things. This bag is for my daughter, when she found out I made a handbag for myself she stated she wanted one. I told her perhaps for her birthday!
This handbag is my own design but was inspired by a picture of a bag style she sent to me. This bag is really not much like the bag picture but I was pleased that I was able to duplicate the handle attachment as it was quite unique. The inside has a recessed zippered closure.
Happy Birthday Jessica! Love Mom.

I die cut half doily pieces using a Tim Holtz on the edge die, and tied some blue seam binding around the cover.
Inside the pages have lots of pockets and tags for photos and journalling.
The binding is a Tim Holtz binder ring and the pages were hole punches using the binder punch, also from Tim Holtz.
Was so much fun to make- love mini albums!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out this post,

Our sister's in our church monthly visits our sisters and present a spiritual message and check on their personal welfare. This month's is on Marriage is ordained of God.
After reading the message this is a handout idea that came to mind.
As a couple works individually towards the Lord, they also get closer to each other. This handout is interactive and shows how they achieve this. You can use this idea for your visiting teaching if you wish.
First I cut a piece of blue card stock in half longwise.
Then I die cut a heart out where I wanted the fold line to be. I did not want to cut through the whole way so I positioned my cut plate only over the part I wanted to cut.
