Razzle,Dazzle Purse

Hi there!  Is it Winter already?  We got about 2 inches of snow yesterday!  It's not even Thanksgiving yet!  What's up with that?  Wednesday our furnace went out (isn't that always the way when it's really cold?).  Bright and early Thursday morning I made calls to find someone to come repair it.  We were actually thinking about replacing the furnace until the guy said it wouldn't be installed until this week.  I don't think so!  A new part was needed, which the repairman had delivered here.  Unfortunately, it didn't fit so we had to go another day without heat until the right part was obtained!  Friday I already had a brunch date planned with some friends.  Let me tell you, getting ready was no picnic - especially getting in and out of the shower!  Brrrr!  When I returned later in the day, we had heat!  Yes, finally!!! 

OK, time to tell you about this adorable little purse, which was made with a paper bag!  You can watch the video directions HERE on Kristin Wilson's blog.  It's easy to make and has a lot of WOW factor.  The fastener/closure was made with the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch by Stampin' Up! using Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Hadn't used that color forever!  The starburst (or sun) image from Kinda Eclectic was stamped using Rich Razzleberry ink on a scrap of white cardstock.  The center portion of the image was then punched out with a 1" Circle Punch and adhered to the scallop circle.  Of course, a rhinestone had to be added for some bling.  It was just the right accent.  A girls gotta have her bling!  The embossed panel was achieved with the Lovely Lace embossing folder from Stampin' Up!  I've had this folder for several months now - had to blow off the dust.  Lol  This was the first time to use it.  Love it!

That's it for now.  Come back tomorrow and the next few days to check out some projects that I was able to complete over the weekend.  Thanks for stopping by today!  You're always welcome here!

  1. If there's any consolation, you guys were fortunate that it went out this early and not in the middle of winter, as that could had been much worse. While it took some time to have it fixed up, at least it was resolved in time for your brunch. Let's hope it holds up!
