Candy Purse

Do you love cute gifts to give to your friends, co workers or even teachers? Here is a GREAT gift using our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. I made these for a Close to my Heart event last week. We made 122 of them! I used the stamp set that is in the Lucy workshop kit.

Here's how I made them.

Use the Cricut Cartridge Shape 8 on page 47 cut at 5-1/2" for the base cardstock.

Line up one end at 2” and score. This will make the top fold.

Used the same shape cut at 5-1/4" for the b&t for the flap cut at 1 3/4”.

You'll get 2 flap coverings from just one shape.

Place the cello bag that measures 3-1/2" wide, and that's what I based the base of my purse on. If your bags are smaller or larger, make adjustments.

You will need 8” of ribbon for the handle. Punch a hole by the fold in the cardstock, but on the BACK of the piece. Adhere the ribbon to the front flap.

Now you have a quick and easy gift. Need our Cricut Cartridge? Give me a call and I can get one for you!

Stella Paper Pack

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit! It is our Stella Paper pack. Look at this amazing layout with this cute couple (my son Cody and Brooke his girlfriend). It was created with our Stella paper pack, CTMH Cricut Cartridge and a few stamps!

This layout was for Brooke's 24th birthday. I cut her name out with our Cricut cartridge and popped it up. I also used some of our Lucy Glittery Rub on's too. It was so easy to create.

This layout is from our Magic How to Book. Transfigure is the name of the layout. Remember, our AMAZING How to Books are being discontinued...so if you would like to scrapbook Faster, Simpler and Easier...you need to get these NOW!
