Stampin’ Up! Clutch/Purse with Note Cards

I love this purse! It only takes one sheet of 12 X 12″ Designer Series Paper. What a wonderful gift for someone and it’s a great way to use up some of those sheets of pretty paper that I’ve been hoarding!   🙂


This purse was made using a retired Stampin’ Up! DSP called Back to Black. A great way to use up those retired papers!


I kept the outside simple, yet elegant, using the Flower Medallion punch and a flower from the Flourishing Thinlits. The Metal Rimmed Pearls add the touch of class.


Inside are four matching note cards with envelopes. I’m sure that you could do 6 cards and envelopes if you wanted to. I used magnet snaps from Basic Grey (available at Amazon) for the closure.


Here is another version I made using the Floral Boutique Designer Series paper.  I love this one too.


I used velcro as the closure on this purse but with the note cards, it wouldn’t stay shut. That’s why I switched to the magnets.

All of the supplies, other than the Back to Black, are listed below. Just click on the item to be taken to my store to purchase.

Butterflies Thinlits

I absolutely love this new dies set!


I have played with it more than anything else in the Occasions catalog. I used Blackberry Bliss card stock and ink on this card. Such a rich, beautiful color.



Melon Mambo was used on this card. The flower border was made using the single flower in the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set, which is available for free with any $50 or more order from Stampin’ Up! through March 31, 2015.


Melon Mambo was used on this card too. I love pink!

Irresistibly Yours in Black

bl lg bfly


bl double

This paper is amazing! It’s called Irresistibly Yours and it is overlooked by most who have seen the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

bl single

We played with this paper at my class Thursday night and the ladies were blown away at how much fun this paper can be. It is white, and it has a pre-embossed white pattern on it. When you add your ink to it, the embossing resists the ink but the background accepts it. So, after you add your ink, you just wipe across the paper to remove the ink from the embossed area and reveal the pre-embossed white pattern. With this card we used a large background stamp to add the black lacy pattern. After we wiped across it with a paper towel, the white flowers were revealed.   You can also sponge, brayer, or use daubers to add color to the background. (See my February 12, post for another card I did with this paper.)

bl both

Here are the two cards that we did at class Thursday night. Actually, everyone ended up doing the one on the right for both of their cards. That lacy butterfly is too pretty to leave off!  I got my inspiration for this card on YouTube from Linda Bauwin.  Click HERE to see her video.

The best part about this amazing paper is that you can get it FREE with any purchase of $50.00 or more from Stampin’ Up! This offer is good until March 31, 2015.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ve listed all the supplies for these card below. If you’d like to purchase any of these items, just click on them. Or feel free to contact me.  You can also place an order by clicking HERE.

Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day Three





lg butterfly

Today is the last day of the Glitter Queen Blog Hop and it has been a blast!

bermuda wreath   wreath calypso

Okay, I was surfing YouTube the other day and came across a video that was so awesome! This lady took a single flower from the stamp set “Simply Wonderful” (page 16 in the Sale-A-Bration catalog) and made a wreath out of it. I was so excited to try it! And I knew exactly what I wanted to put in the center of this wreath. Yep, a Lollie!

lg teal

I just fell in love with this wreath! So many ways to use it! Here I used the butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies which are available now in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.  I used Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay on this card. The size of the card is 4″x 4″.

melon thank you

After making the 4 x 4″ cards, I decided to adapt the wreath to fit 3 x 3″ cards.  They turned out great! These ones here are Melon Mambo.

burmuda thankyou


On these 3 x 3″ cards I used the “Butterfly Basics” stamp set and coordinating “Butterflies” Thinlits die. (Also in the Occasions catalog.) This lacy butterfly if so pretty.

elegant thank you

Elegant Eggplant was used on these cards.

Butterfly Thinlits Dies


lg butterfly

There are so many fun things in the new Occasions catalog! This is just one of the Butterfly Thinlits dies. The set comes with 3 dies, one of which has a coordinating stamp that you can get. The Butterfly Thinslits and the stamp set, Butterfly Basics, are also available in a bundle to help you save money!

butterfly single

This card was made with Lost Lagoon card stock & Blackberry Bliss Card stock.  The designer paper, Irresistibly Yours,  is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is one of the items you can choose for free with a $50.00 or more order. I used Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon & Pink Pirouette inks on the designer paper.  This paper is so fun because you can make it any color you want and still have the white embossing show through.

Awesome Treat Bag


treatbag heart


Of all the items in the Occasions catalog, this is my absolute favorite! It’s called “Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die.”



This cute little bag is perfect for giving treats, notes, gift cards and more. The finished size is 3 11/16 X 5 1/4. Super cute and super easy to put together.

treat bags 2


This set comes with 12 dies. The heart, bow and “for you,” above are just a couple of them. The mini treat bag on the left is the original bag that the die cuts and the one on the right is made using 2 of the larger dies. This paper was free from the sale-a-bration catalog. (For each $50 you spend on any Stampin’ Up! merchandise you can pick a free item.) Click the link at the right to check out more items in these 2 specialty catalogs.

Matching Desk Set/Organization


It has been such a bitter cold winter. My dining room table has been trashed for months with my crafting supplies as it was just too cold to try to heat my craft room. Well, it’s finally warm enough to move back into my craft room. YAY!


I purchased this shelf from this winter and I am absolutely loving it! Since becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have acquired so many stamp sets that I was running out of room. (I know what a terrible problem to have.)  This shelf was the perfect solution. It houses all of my newer stamp sets and has lots of room to grow. I am in the process of converting my older stamps into Stampin’ Ups! newer cases. Then all of my stamps will look great and be easily accessible.


These boxes were made from Sam Donald’s patterns (she is a master at boxes). They hold my embossing folders, Framelits, and Stampin’ Write Markers. I had already made the embossing folder one and when Sam came out with the marker video last week, I decided to make a matching set. The embossing folder box was originally made to hold cards. So, 2 uses for one pattern!

marker side

I purchased my Stampin’ Write Markers in the full set, so I have the case that they come in. But I just love this storage idea that Sam came up with.


I made the Framelits box a little wider to be able to put my larger framelits (envelope inserts die) and Thinlits Circle Die. It is pictured on the left.

Here are links to Sam’s videos:
