Handbags by Cara & I


Hi, it's bad blogger here! Sorry about the lack of posts...again! School hols have been really busy & I haven't managed to blog even the very few projects I've made, but I'm trying to start catching up over the next week. Cara started back at school today & I have a half hour to get this post done, so let's get to a card or 2...Cara & I made these during the holidays. She said she wanted to make a handbag card, which is a very old favourite of mine. She also chose the stamps & colours – the heart from Polka Dot Punches (a Sale-a-Bration set) & pink passion (not one you see very often from me!). The template I used was one I modified from a swap made by Michelle Cox for the 2007 SU convention. (I couldn't find a blog or site for Michelle, but if someone knows of one, let me know & I'll add a link). The rose & celery ribbon on mine is a retired SU one. Miss Cara chose some pink & white spotty ribbon (non SU). If you;d like more information or a copy of my template, just drop me an e-mail.
Making these cards brought back very happy memories of my first Stampin' Up! event as a Demonstrator, back in June 2007, as it was the make & take project for my launch. What a chaotic but totally fun day that was & I had no idea that it would be the start of many, many fun classes at home with so many wonderful ladies & now friends.
Just a reminder that during Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration, you can receive the 'Polka Dots Punches' stamp set I used here for free during Jan & Feb when you place a $100 order or host a $600 workshop. Check out the link at the right or contact me for more information.
I'll be back with some more backed up projects....Promise!
Di

Hey Di! I've been wondering how you are doing. Figured you must have been having a busy school hols.

Love these little handbags (do you happen to have a template for them?).

Talk to you soon,
Sam.

Hi Di, Was it really June 2007? Gosh time does fly. I loved making the little handbag card way back then (and so did my niece when I sent it to her for her birthday). Looking forward to seeing your other projects - from the vault or otherwise.

PS I will never forget when you first asked me "Do you like Card Making?".
