Need Some Retail Therapy - & a Video!

Happy Tuesday! I'm so honored to be a GUEST DESIGNER 
over at USE IT TUESDAY today! 

USE IT TUESDAY Ch# 54 Flowers For Mom

***REMEMBER: 
All of Use It Tuesday's challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! 
A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

For this challenge, I decided to use a Lori Whitlock SVG file with my Cameo.
It's a darling PURSE FOLD CARD.
The SVG file includes:
  • The purse fold card shape
  • perforation for the fold lines (which makes folding so easy!)
  • Purse handle
  • Cuts for the pattern papers for the oustide
  • Cut for the button


For the inside writing mat, I simply took the outside pattern cut and changed the size to just a little smaller and cut it again, adhering this smaller mat to the inside for my message.




I can see myself making lots of these purse cards!!


Isn't this darling?!

I used all papers from Walmart - it's the Colorbok "Beach House" Signature Collection. This pack includes 50 double sided pattern papers, and they are all gorgeous! 




Flowers on the front are my HOARDED supply. These flowers are over 2 years old, but still lookin' good! Brad is Recollections. Button from TSQ FB Shop. (I got my magnets from there too!)



I slipped a magnet under the button on the purse flap and another under the pattern paper for the front of the purse. So now my purse "snaps" closed. Love it!


Outside and inside mats are all inked with Close to My Heart "Pear" ink. It's a beautiful, rich color!

Cardz TV Stamps "Good Friends" used for the sentiment also inked and stamped with the Pear ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Make sure you hop over to  USE IT TUESDAY and join in the challenge. Don't forget to mention your HOARDED SUPPLY in your blog post.

Smiles! :) Janis
