Grab Your Handbag -- It's Time to Shop!

Hi there! It's time to Hop and Shop with My Favorite Things! All of the new releases are available right HERE, right now! If you didn't start at Kim's Blog, you'll want to go back and catch up -- all of the new sets are are fantastic this month!

My project features Jolinne All Dressed Up. What girl doesn't love to get dressed up for a night out? I had some fun making this handbag-shaped card. I'm quite sure there are handbag templates already out there somewhere, but I just started folding and cutting until I came up with this one! ;) I used the Die-namics Jumbo Scallops die on the top flap and the new Jumbo Ric Rac die on the My Favorite Felt.

I used magnetic discs to hold the top flap closed. When the card is opened, you see Jolinne all dressed up! :) I colored the image with Copics, then I cut it out.

Here's an image close-up...

Next you'll be visiting the amazing Barbara Anders. I'm telling you, everything she creates is beautiful!

Enjoy the rest of the Hop, and happy shopping! :)

SO cute! Love the colours and her make-up!

I have a question for you about the metal discs. I have some but find that the magnets are so strong that either one side rips off the paper when you open it or the paper folds all ugly from trying to open it. How do yours open so nicely?? I've tried several brand names and always have that problem.

Mary J said...

So clever, Christina! I love the colours too!
