Spring Bling Blog Hop!!

The time has finally arrived, it's the Spring Bling Blop Hop!!! If you just happened to visit me and would like to start at the beginning you may enter at M.A.G. Challenge by the Page. There you will have to become a follower in order to receive the giveaway only one comment per person. There will be blog candy throughout the hop, so you don't want to miss anyone!

Now onto my projects, I created a purse and card set for you today! The purse was created from the Create a Critter cartridge and it's cut at 8.78 (three times) one for the front and one for the back panels. For the third cut, I cut off the handle only and embossed it with the Herringbone pattern. I then glued both pieces onto the front panel and created the bottom and sides, measured to fit my 4x4 card set. My flourish came from Tinker bell and it's cut at 3.89 including the shadow. I then got my buckles from Simply Charmed (Irish man's hat) and they are cut at 5.26, I also added Martha Stewart's glitter glue. Of course I couldn't forget the bling, added some ribbon and my purse was complete!!! I just love how it turned out!




Now onto my cards, they are all created from Tinker Bell cartridge. The flourishes are cut at 3.15 including the shadow. The cards are all cut at 4.00 x 4.00 and the mats are at 3.75 with faux stitching, I added ribbon and bling and my projects were complete!!




I hope you have enjoyed my creations. Now on to what you have been waiting for,"BLOG CANDY" I will be giving away the Paisley Cartridge.
