My first Purse SVG!!

***I apologize, but I no longer have access to this file as my hard drive crashed and I can't seem to retrieve it.  :(  I will try to create a new one to replace and will keep you informed.***  
Hugs, Terri


Hello Crafty Friends!!!

I am so excited!!! I created my first purse SVG!!!!  I wanted to make a friend a purse to put cash in from my bestie and I, so she could by herself one of those Miche` covers.  I thought a purse would be sooo appropriate.

I started looking around the internet for a already made one, but only found some flat ones.  I saw some that were similarly shaped but they were hand cut out templates.  I am horrible at hand cutting, so I thought...I can probably just weld some shapes together on my SCAL2 software to get the effect I was looking for, and Voila!!!!





I still need to figure out that whole score line thingy, but I was in a rush to get it finished.  It took me quite a few hours to figure this out.  LOL!  Baby steps! I just used my MS score board to score all the fold lines.

I got some inspiration from a purse I saw online that scored the lines to give it a puffy effect.  Love it!





One of the ladies at the birthday party said she sees these in store for $8.00!!!  What!?

Some tips:

I used floral rivets for the handle and applied them loosely so you can still rotate the handle.  I put a little brad to fill up the hole.  I used a button that I cut off the shank for the faux closer.  (There is a little hook and loop piece that I used with glue dots.)  I attached a little tag to make it look authentic.  ;)  I also used 2 sided dp so it looks like lining on the inside.

I tried to make a little wallet for the inside but it turned out too big.  So I decorated a scrap of the vanilla paper with a little strip of the dp and that is where we wrote out our happy birthday wishes. Looks like another project to create. ;)

I am not sure how to share a file yet, another thing to learn I guess, but I would be happy to send it to you by email.  (We can see if that works??)  You can email me at myneed2craft@gmail.com. Put Purse SVG in the subject line.  :)  This is totally rough, so don't judge me to hard...LOL!

Until next time...

Sympathy Cards...

Hello Crafty Friends!

I so do not like to make Sympathy cards, which I am sure everyone can relate to.  Last month I had to make 2.  : (

I thought I would share them.  I found some inspiration from Pinterest.



I sure hope I don't have to make anymore for a really long time.

Cupcake card...

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Been awhile again!  Time just keeps getting away from me.  ;)  I noticed recently it has for lots of bloggy friends to.  So I don't feel so bad.  Maybe its a winter thing??  Who knows?!  LOL!  So I will do my best to do a little catching up.

This is a cupcake card I made recently for Kristine's big birthday.  ;)



Sorry you can't see it very well, but I watermarked the
solid color side. It was more visible before the ink totally
dried.  Grrrr!  LOL!  Oh, well.  
All products used were from The {Stamps} of Life.  Here is the list if you are interested...
