Fall Purse Sets

I can show these Purse Gift Sets now.  I made seven of these sets for my friend Judy who bought them for the ladies that work for her.  She is great about giving gifts for lots of different holidays and these were for Halloween, although we went with more of a fall theme.

I really like the purses that Becky Roberts creates, so I decided to design my own pattern.  This is what I came up with.  The nice thing about these purses are that they will hold 4.25 x 5.5 cards.  A lot of the patterns I have seen are for purses that will only hold 3x3 cards.

I hope the ladies at the office enjoyed them.

Thanks for looking,

September 2011 Stamp Club Projects

 My November Stamp Club is next week and I didn't even post the projects from September.  I hold my stamp clubs every other month.  This gives the ladies time to try out their new purchases before it's time to buy again.  It also works out well because we start in September and go until May so the ladies have a chance to order out of each mini.  We also finish up before summer starts.

At each club meeting we do three projects.  I usually try to do 2 cards and a 3-d project.  For September I picked a card that had several techniques involved in it - Emboss Resist, Background stamping, Tearing, Sponging - and then the second card was a clean and simple card.

For the 3-d project, although it was pretty simple to make, I still managed to slip in a couple of techniques on this project - punch art (check out the cute pumpkin) and altering punches (using a punch in a different way than intended).  We also used the big shot to make the box.

Hope you like these fall projects and thanks for looking,

Post-it Note Holder

This was another door prize from my Christmas Stamp-a-stack.  These would make great gifts for teachers, co-workers, secret sisters or for just anyone you want to give a little something to.

Thanks for looking,

Stamp-a-Stack Door Prizes

Here is one of the door prizes from my Stamp-a-Stack last month.  It's a dry erase picture frame. 

The pumpkin was attached with velcro so if you wanted to change with the seasons, you could just pull off the pumpkin, change the background paper (which is inside the frame) and pop a new embellishment onto the front.  Fast and simple gift idea.

Thanks for looking,
