I have a goal of posting a new card or project every day on my blog unless visiting family or on vacation. But lately, I have just been unable to meet that goal. I just have had no extra time to play and make extra cards to keep blogging that frequently. I am busy cutting for classes, designing and blogging for design teams and writing articles for Scrap and Stamp Arts. All fun stuff- but hopefully soon I will have time to play with all my NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) and share with you here.
And I just got back from visiting my two favorite grandsons and their parents. Take a look at my sweeties:
I am a huge fan of Tonic Studio's Kensington Purse Die Set and loved the presentation box out of acetate I learned how to make on this video. Carolyn Shellard from the UK makes and sells hundreds of these purses in their special boxes and I was so inspired to try one myself that I ordered the acetate in the weight and size she suggests. I will admit- I found it hard to even get one to fit together and stay together- but I also have not had time to really perfect the technique. I made this purse and decorated the top and bottom of the box with a lovely dp from Ken Oliver. The bow on the top of the box is also a Tonic Studios die and the chain "For You" is from Impression Obsession. Here is a look at the other side of the purse in and out of the presentation box:
The little bow is a die from Sue Wilson. I added some pretty blue gems to complete the project.
