Another purse and upcoming event reminders

Hope that you're having a great weekend. As promised, I'm back again with the other version of the purse I shared yesterday ... but first a couple of event reminders:

Crop and class
Next Saturday - 14 May - is the next monthly Crop and Class at St Saviour's Church Hall, High Green, Sheffield
Crop - Drop in any time 11am - 4pm and stay as long as you like. Bring along your own project and materials (can be cardmaking, scrapbooking or anything else crafty) and join us to share in some inspiration and good company. Cost is £4 towards room hire and refreshments, with any profits donated to Cavendish Cancer Care.
Class - runs 1.30pm - 3.30pm and all materials are provided. Learn new techniques (this month is ruffled ribbon and faux dry embossing), build your technique notebook and practice on a couple of projects. Cost is £12 for full class kit (including a product to take home), room hire and refreshments.
Crop and class - come along for both and the combined cost is just £15.
More details including directions to the venue are here.

Spring Stamptacular
This full day (10:30am - 3.30pm) crafting smorgasbord takes place a week on Sunday - 22 May - also at St Saviour's Church Hall, High Green, Sheffield.
Booking is essential for this event, so that we are able to guarantee you a goodie bag on arrival. The cost is £30 or ... bring a friend and get 10% off, making it just £27 each. Cost includes your goodie bag, projects (including all materials) throughout the day, light lunch, refreshments, free entry into the prize draw and more! Use the Paypal button on the right hand menu to book. More details are here or please email me if you have any questions.

Now, back to the crafting:

Stamp sets: Baby Blossoms, Baroque Border
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz
Punches: Word Window, Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle
Bigz Die: Scallop Envelope
Seam Binding Ribbon: Rose Red

Two scallop envelopes were die cut from Pretty in Pink card and the Baroque Border wheeled across the centre in Regal Rose ink. The handle was punched from each using the Word Window punch and the bottom flap cut to match the width of the side flaps (see yesterday's post for details). Using the stamp-a-ma-jig for placement the full rose and the leaves from the Baby Blossoms set were stamped onto Whisper White card with Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Pear Pizzazz inks. The Rose was punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle and matted onto a 1-3/8" Circle punched from Daffodil Delight card. These circles were popped up on a couple of dimensionals onto a Scallop Circle punched from Regal Rose card and then with more dimensionals onto the purse front. The two envelopes were assembled with Sticky Strip, a mini choccie bar added inside and Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon tied around the handle and trimmed.

This side view shows the width of the purse - just big enough for that mini choccie bar.

Now I'm off to finish a birthday card for my SIL ready for tomorrow - who says I'm a last minute crafter, lol!
