Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2!

Are you ready for more Taylored Expressions sneak peeks?! Well, I am super excited about today's post and project. When I first saw the new adorable Stamp A Sweet Impression "Downtown Diva" I knew I wanted to make a little purse for it. I didn't want to make another card so I pulled out my nestabilites and came up with this little purse/handbag. I used the curved rectangles to make the base for the purse. I used card stock and patterned paper from the Mother's Day Key Ingredients. Once, I ran the die cuts through the cuttlebug I then cut a strip of pink 3" x 10.75" cardstock. This strip will connect the rectangles together. I scored the strip at 3/4" on both sides (long ways). Then, I scored 3" on both sides (short ways). Once, I did that I cut some slits where the score lines met. This allowed the strip to bend. Lastly, I adhered both rectangles to the strip and added some eyelets and ribbon. I also tucked some tissue paper inside. I used the sentiment from the "Fresh Flowers' set since I want to give this to my mother. I think the card from yesterday and the purse will make a cute gift ensemble. Well, I hope you've enjoyed my sneak peeks so far. I still have one more to share so make sure to check back tomorrow. Also, don't forget that both these sets will go online tonight at midnight!
Before you leave make sure to check out all the other design team member's blogs. They have some awesome things to share :)
Have a great weekend.

Hi Ana! My name is Joelene and I have sort-of been following your blog for a little while now. I love the stamps you use especially "The Greeting Farm" one's. I'm just checking out your etsy shop too. I want to sell things on etsy sometime as well. I make cards and gifts using mostly Stampin' Up! stamps. Please come and have a look at my blog sometime and leave a comment. Thanks
