Episode 184 - Forever Young Purse Set

Hi friends!!!


Today I am going to share with you a super fun project.  I was going crazy over this in My Pink Loft last night.  The paper was flying, my Cricut was humming, and, of course, I was having the time of my life!  

I hope you enjoy this gift idea.  I have made these in the past using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More but this was the first time I used Cricut Forever Young Cartridge.  Enjoy!


Don't forget that if you added my blinkie on a message board, especially the Cricut Message Board, please remove them.  I talked to my Provo Craft contact yesterday and although they love My Pink Stamper, it has gotten a little crazy with the Pinkie Blinkies!  We decided it would be best just to remove these now.  You are welcome to keep them up on your blogs and smaller message boards.  :)

Also, My Pink Stamper's Cricut Fun Volume 2 DVD is now in stock and SHIPPING!!!  The link is on the top right side of my blog.  Just click on it and it will take you directly over to where my product can be purchased.  This new DVD is a 2 disc set with a ton of projects and info on it!  If you enjoy any of my other videos you are sure to love this DVD, too!

***Here are some links to buy 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 sized envelopes.  I checked Clearbags.com and did not see that size anymore.***

  98. omg, this is so weird. I had your blog open and was making a card. I hadn't been to the computer in over an hour. All of a sudden, I hear you talking. It was echoed and you were saying welcome to MPS Live and it sounded like there were other people there but I never clicked anything. You mentioned something about 177..something.. I wasn't even near my computer!! What the heck?! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  143. What a cute project. It would look even more colorful if you made two (may one with polka dots) and put them together so the dots lined the purse with the dots or stripes. You could co-ordinate that with your cards too! Just a thought!
