Big Purse Gift Box and A2 Cards

The New Purse with Big 3D Bow comes in 2 sizes, both with 2 options for a big 3D bow or layered doodle flower for the front.

The bigger box will hold A2 cards and envelopes or beauty supplies to pamper the recipient. The smaller box is perfect for small treats, polish,etc.

Robyn Pitts at Sir Chauncey Rocco is our guest designer today and she has taken the Purse with 3D Bow and turned it into this fabulous gift box and filled it with her beautiful Vintage Cards with Oval Frames. Take a look....
I created the new Purse Box using 80# black card stock by American Craft and the Graphic 45 Love Notes Collection.


I embellished the bag all over with rhinestones trim, which adds a touch of elegance.  The lid is lined with white scalloped lace and layered with a beautiful spray of roses in white, red, and black.

On the front of the lid, I embellished the over-sized bow with a black heart surrounded by rhinestones.

Below the bow I added a chipboard piece from the Love Notes collection as a closure for the bag.
The purse is secured with a Velcro closure and I attached the handle using a pearl brad.

The inside of the box is lined with coordinating paper, which gives the purse a finished look and makes it even more sturdy

 I created a set of six  A2 cards and envelopes using the Vintage Card with Oval Frame and the A2 Bracket Envelope

I used a strand of shimmery red ribbon to secure the envelopes. It keeps them all neatly together while adding a touch of class and elegance to my gift.

I wanted the cards to tuck nicely into a standard A2 envelope so I limited the embellishments. Even so I was able to add visual interest without the bulk by fussy cutting images from the paper collection and adding a bow. Also, the multiple layers in the Vintage Card with Oval Frame created an aperture that showcases the sentiment nicely!

Using the Purse as a Gift Box for Beauty Products...

 For my second project, I used the purse as a gift box instead of a card holder and I created a coordinating card to go with it.

The paper collection that I used is Pretty as a Poppy by the Paper Studio.

 The Purse Box is quite sizeable and holds an array of beauty products.

 This will make a lovey gift for a birthday, wedding shower, or Mother’s Day.

Valentine Love Mini Album with Robyn Pitts

 Robyn created her Love Mini Album using medium weight 12 x 12 black chipboard and poured a lot of love, passion and creativity into each page. See how she turned the 4 page Love Word Album into a keepsake that will hold over 36 photos. Every page is filled with beautiful detail and fun, interactive features.

The letter “L” is cut from 2 layers of black chipboard that creates room for the shaker elements. The chipboard letter is then outlined in rhinestones and the shaker heart is filled with sequins.

When you open Robyn's album the back of her cover page is kept simple with a panel to journal or write a special message to the recipient. What a wonderful keepsake this would make for a newly wed couple. 

A large heart (in place of the letter O) is cut from 2 layers of black chipboard and then glued down on just the right side to create room for a pocket on the left.  Robyn also created an additional black boarder to outline the heart and she explains in her links how she did that. 

The heart is embellished with a mini fringe heart, pink and white rose floral spray, ribbon, several layers of decorative chipboard elements and a whimsical silver glitter arrow.

Several 3x4 journal cards that are backed with black cardstock are placed behind the heart pocket and are perfect for adding more photos.

Robyn created this next pocket by duplicating the base of the “Heart” page and cutting it in half. Then she created gussets on both sides to create a pocket.

The pocket is lined with pink lace, hearts and more rhinestones.
This pocket contains (4) 4x6 journal cards that are perfect for photos and journaling. She also included a tag and a small heart shaped notepad for more journaling

The letter “V” is cut on 1 layer of black chipboard and outlined with rhinestones then embellished with a beautiful resin butterfly, pink and white rose spray, and a lace applique.

Robyn shares links to the Twist and Pop card and where to find the paper pad and other materials she used for this beautiful album.

 The Letter “E” is cut on 2 layers of black chipboard to create room for the shaker element which is filled with sequins. More embellishments, hearts, a pink and white rose floral spray and mini envelope are added to the bottom of the letter.

Robyn added a waterfall album with a magnetic closure to hold (13) 3x4 photos. Be sure to check out her video for more details and great tips to create your own Love Word Album.

You can find Robyn's Youtube channel HERE to view this project along with a whole host of other creative projects for paper crafting. She's so inspiring and shows how to take your creativity to the next level. 

THANK YOU ROBYN for letting me share this. ~ Val

7 Christmas Papercraft Projects from DT Shirley

During our Christmas in July I wanted to share all these wonderful projects from Christmas's Past that were done by our Design Team member Shirley @ Scrappy Sam Designs. 

Ice Skating Bears

What I always love about Shirley's projects is the imagination that goes into her designs. The patterns seem to be the jumping off point for her and then her imagination kicks in like in her Ice Skating Bears. This wintery skate uses the 3D Skate and Skating Bears.

Christmas in July Snowglobe Ornaments

She often uses a combination of files to create something new like the snowglobe ornaments where she used
The Birdhouse Trio
Snowman Winter Welcome

Ice Skating Bear Snowflake card

Adding one of the Ice Skating bears to the front of the Gentle Snowflake shape card gave her a very wintery and unique Christmas card.

Frosty's Top Hat

With Frosty's Top Hat she saw the possiblity to turn "Uncle Sam's Hat Box" from the 4th of July into a wintery hat box.

Shirley added the Gingerbread Babies digi stamps to the circle easel card from the Easel Card Collection.

3 Christmas Shape Cards by Shirley

It's Christmas in July at My Scrap Chick!
For my project I made three Christmas shape cards. 

Holly Jolly Christmas Card
Merry & Bright Christmas Card

Winter Wishes Christmas Card

I designed my cards in Design Space. I grouped all the pieces of each card together and sized the card so the card base measured 11.5 inches. The finished cards range from 5.25 to 5.5 inches tall.

Printed cardstock: Old World Winter Stack by the Paper Studio
Plain Cardstock by Coredinations
Glossy cardstock in white, red, green and black (source unknown)
Cream & gold pearlescent cardstock by COLORBOK (for candle)
Christmas trims
Various gems (Jots)
Coordinating inks
Foam squares

All the pieces were inked with coordinating inks. The cards were put together with glue and/or foam squares to make the titles pop. Gems and Christmas trims were added as accents.

I love these cards; they are so easy to make and turn out so beautiful!

Give them a try!

Thanks for stopping by!
