Finally a Baseball-Free Weekend!

Wow! Have I been overwhelmed lately with the month of May! All of what used to be free moments have been literally consumed by end-of-the year teacher and Mama duties and baseball practices & games! I finally have a weekend where all of my time is not spoken for. Whew!

I have been creating in those late night hours after kids are in dreamland......using Stampin' Up!'s amazing designer series papers. I just haven't been able to photograph, edit and post anything. SO my pledge to you is to post a new creation every day this week highlighting this fabulous paper. Be sure to bookmark & check back daily or better yet, subscribe to my blog so you'll be reminded when a new creation has been posted.

Here is today's treasure:

I used the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper. These colors are so rich and yummy! I also used the Big Shot and my favorite die, Top Note (a SU! exclusive) and the Scallop Circle die to create the cute little purse. It really is absolutely darling irl if I do say so myself! I will be making a whole bunch more of these for gifts! I used the Sincere Salutations stamp set (so beautiful & incredibly versatile!)and a variety of Stampin' Up!'s fun punches to create four tiny, cute, and useful note cards which fit perfectly inside the box part of the purse with mini 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" envelopes.

Supplies used (all from Stampin' Up!):
Ink: Versamark, Basic Gray Classic
Paper: Raspberry Tart DSP, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, & Regal Rose Cardstock
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note die, Scallop Circle die, Scallop Edge Punch, Eyelet Border punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Scallop Circle punch, Heart to Heart punch, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Certainly Celery SAB Ribbon Bundle, small circle of velcro as a closure
