Retreat Treat Purses!

These are treat purses that I made for our Spouses Retreat this weekend. The front of the purse flops down and you can put a message inside. I filled them with a little bag of M&M's and Smarties!
You can find the link to making these purses here:
Try one! They are actually pretty simply and look so cute when they are done.
Happy Stampin!

What can you think of next?

Have you taken time to simply try something different? Are you stuck in the same rut of layering? Same layout? Same stamp set? SAme everything?
Then simply try something different! This make take a little longer to make than your usual card. However, once you try it you will want to keep trying it and it will become as simple as those old ones.
Have you used a spritzer tool? No! You are missing out. The Spritzer tool is what made the specks on this card stock.
How about faux stitching? No! Are you crazy! You don't even have to use a sewing maching.
If you try something new, you might like it. It's not VEGE's just paper! HAVE FUN!

A little bit of everything!

Try Something Different!
This cards holds so many techniques: faux stitching, paper piercing, punching, layers upon layers, Splitcoaststamper challenge, paper tearing, distressing, embellishments gallore, and FUN!
Try atleast one of these techniques on your cards. Not sure what they are, e-mail me at and I would be happy to help you.
