I wanted to try some other Designer Series Paper besides the Summer Smooch with the Petite Purse Die.  My workshop girls from last week – wanted to see the die so this is what I came up with.

I used the Attic Boutique Designer Paper from the Occasions Mini catalog and look how cute it turned out.  This particular paper is not shown well in the mini – it only shows the two strips and the background but in the corner is also has the flowers so it makes for a funky little purse.

To decorate the front I punched with the Boho Blossoms punch and stacked all three flowers together and put a Rhinestone brad through the center and secured it to the front of the purse.  The Daffodil Delight print is the backside of this paper so if you wanted you could have turned it around and had the Daffodil print on the outside of the purse.

These would be cute for a bridal shower which is what I was thinking of when I selected the paper to try.  The Occasions Mini has ended now but guess what there are some items in it that have been carried over and it sounds like some will be in our new catalog.

These are the stamp sets still available – Bordering on Romance, Loving Thoughts, Mixed Bunch, Tea Shoppe, Apothecary Art, Love & Laughter, Mouthwatering, and Baby Prints.  Some of the other products still available are the Big Shot items – Framelits, Dies, Sizzlits, and folders, Dazzling Details, the Baker’s twine and Seam Binding, the Twitterpated fabric and designer paper, Blossom punch, Simply Scored, the pearls,  the scented embossing powder, and the cookie stamps.

I can’t wait to see what other exciting new things are in the catalog!

Have a great weekend – I have stamp club tonight, then Kyle is coming home tomorrow for a week before he leaves to go to California.  Tyler is already home – so a year of college done.  I’ll try to post this weekend about the birds in the backyard – I do have updates for you – I just have had a chance to get them posted.
