The Panel Purse, now available in the 99 Cent store, has contrasting panels on the front and back that can be stamped, embossed or inked to create a truly unique look. The included tag can be stamped with any sentiment to match the occasion of the gift. With Easter coming, this would make an adorable Easter basket too! :-)  Just click on any of the previews below to go to the store.

How to create a resist effect using embossing and inking

I finally had a chance to record another Creative Techniques video tutorial last night, and this time I recorded and edited the entire thing on my iPhone! The sad truth is, with the HD resolution the iPhones record in, even though I have a reasonably powerful computer, the video files just end up too big for my computer to process efficiently.  Never thought I'd see the day when my phone had a better processor than my computer! LOL

Anyways, this tutorial uses some stamping, embossing and inking to create a vintage looking tag with a very pretty resist effect.  Hope you enjoy it!

Make the Cut! Challenge - Want to Play Along?

Have you seen the challenge on the Make the Cut! forum this time around? It's this cute catch-all basket, why not pop over to the forum, download the freebie and play along? Here's what I came up with:

The patterned paper is from the Charlotte paper pad by K&Company. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Frayed Burlap and Fired Brick to add a little extra grunge around the edges. The ribbon, roses, leaves and pearl strings are miscellaneous items from my stash.

The bird is from my Home Tweet Home image set, available in the 99 Cent Store. The bird is cut from Bazzill cardstock, distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and spritzed with a little Glimmer Mist for a little sparkle.

Here are a few more close-up pics:

New in the 99 Cent Store - Single Cupcake Purse Carrier SVG Cutting File

I know some of you have been waiting for this one, and it's finally here! :-) The Cupcake Purse - Single is now in the 99 Cent Store. This version of the cupcake purse holds a single regular sized cupcake, and has lots of great details that can be customized for so many different looks. And the best part is, the cupcake holder itself is interchangeable with the 4 mini cupcake holder that comes with the original Cupcake Purse, so you can mix and match to put either purse onto either cupcake holder. How great is that!

Just click on any of the images below to visit the store.

The Cupcake Purse opens to reveal the delicious goodies held snugly in place inside.

Quick Valentine Freebie - SVG Cutting File

Are you planning on spending the weekend making valentines with your little ones for school? This cute Valentine is just what you need, and it's a project you can do together because it goes together so quick and easy!

To put the card together, stamp or write a sentiment on the small heart, glue the small heart to the large heart, glue the top of the large heart to the card base, then fold the card in half, write a message on the inside and tuck the open pointy end into the slot with the large heart on the outside. Easy as pie! :-)

New in the 99 Cent Store - Diaper Bag SVG Cutting File

If you're looking for the perfect gift bag for a new or expectant mom, this sweet Diaper Bag is just the thing. Brand new in the 99 Cent Store, the cutting file includes SVG, MTC and PDF versions of the file, as well as complete assembly instructions including photos. (The rattle shown in some of the photos is from the Sweet Baby image set, also available in the 99 Cent store.)

The handle shown is the largest that can be cut on a 12x12 mat, but if you have a longer cutting mat and paper, you could certainly put a longer handle on it. You could also substitute wide ribbon and it would look just as cute!

To make the bag, I used Cake Batter from the Bazzill Basics Two Scoops collection, and It's a Girl Zoo by Ki. The white cardstock I used on the change pad is Avalanche by Bazzill. I also scored a diamond shape in the change pad to simulate the look of quilting.

The bag can be cut large enough to hold several item.

It even has little pockets on the sides that extras can be slipped into.

No diaper bag would be complete without a little fold-out change pad, and this one is the perfect spot for your personal message to the new family.

Even from the back, it's so cute!
