A Little Leather Purse!

Whimsy New Release Hop Click HERE

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday!! I hope every one's week is going smoothly....I wish the weeks would slow down...... summer is almost over and I am not ready for packing lunches, getting up at 6am, homework, after school activities...etc.....but some alone time would be nice though!!! LOL!


Today I wanted to share a little project with you that I made last night. I have had this REALLY COOL designer paper that looks like leather called hot off the press crocodile black and have been wanting to make something with it. So I decided to make this cute little purse using this SUPER SWEET image Shopper Fhiona from Your Next Stamp. I used my Silhouette Digital Cutter to cut this template, added ribbon for the handle, punched a flower in the corner and added a pearl...I then attached my image using velcro so the purse would open and close perfectly!!! Hope you enjoy my little leather purse today.....




AWW I really think my daughter would love to receive this....I could put a gift card in there for her next shopping trip. It holds a gift card or money just right!!!

I also wanted to let you know that Your Next Stamp is turning ONE!!! YIPPEE!!!!

They have got a super FUN blog hop planned starting August 5th to celebrate this exciting occasion and they need your help to spread the word!

All you need to do is... Grab the blinkie code, from the Your Next Stamp Blog found HERE and place the super cute blinkie on your blog!!! Easy Peasy Right??? So Come on over and join the fun for your name to be entered into a random draw for a special new release stamp prize package. You still have time the Winner will be picked August 5th!!!! Don't forget to mark your calendars to come do the hop starting August 5th!!!

Thanks soooo much for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!!
