Elegant Quilted Flap Handbag for Stuff It Collab March

My Elegant Handbag

Hello Everyone!  I am back in my craft room trying to bring some type of normalcy back into my life.  This is my project for a year-long collaboration featuring bags, boxes, baskets, and purses that you can use for gift packaging, home decor, storage, or whatever you desire.

I used two die sets from Simply Made Crafts, the landscape gift bag die set and the big bow die set.

I used my favorite color combo, black and gold.  I used a black cardstock base and then used polkadot paper from an old Halloween paper pad from Michael’s the year they had all the black and gold things for Halloween.  I don’t do Halloween, but I sure bought the paper and the bling when it went on clearance! I sold the sheets I would not use in a destash.

It closes with Velcro.

I embossed the flap with the elusive studded leather embossing folder from Crafter’s Companion.  If you ever come across that one get it because it is hard to find.  A few were re-released last fall and I was able to get one!  I used a black Velcro dot to close it. I added textured flat back bling in the corners.  On the back on the handle, I used another type of flat back bling.

On the butterfly bow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes in Onyx Gold.  I  also added a flower bling.  I really like the way it turned out.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to take a look at my video before you go!

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Hello!  It has been a while since I posted, or even crafted.  We recently moved and I did not have time for anything but packing.  I have not begun to unpack my craft room yet, but I dug some things out to do this project.

For this posting of the Design Team of The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file to work with as long as our project was about Christmas.  I used the Snowflakes Kisses set which has two boxes, the treat box, which I used and a square box.

The paper I used has holographic foiled snowflakes on it.  I had some holographic bling so I added those to the centers of the big snowflakes on each side.

The bling center is holographic to go with the holographic foiling on the paper.

Pumpkin Pillow Boxes

It has been a while.  Hello!  Today for my The Cutting Cafe design team project, I have made some cute pillow boxes with pumpkin cutouts.  I used the Pumpkin version of the Halloween Pillow Boxes.

I added an optional layer around the pumpkin and backed the opening with acetate.  I added a resin leaf at the bottom for an accent.

Steampunk Tote Bag Purse and Mini Wallett

Steampunk Timeless Tote and Wallet

My Steampunk version of the Our Daily Bread Designs Timeless Tote and Wallet Dies

I am in the Steampunk Fantasy Collaboration with Poetspice on YouTube, which runs from July 25 through August 29, 2018.  I am usually a clean and simple crafter but like the steampunk genre and have a good stash of steampunk paper, stamps, and embossing folder and thought this would be a great way to use some of my stash.  I also have had the Timeless Tote and Petite Wallet die sets from Our Daily Bread Designs for a couple months and have not had a chance to play with it.  So, why not a steampunk version of the purse?  This is how it came out…
