BBTB2 Paisley Purse Cut and Blog Hop



I can't believe it's the last Monday of the month and time for another BBTB2 Blog Hop! This week we're featuring any of the cute purse cuts from the Paisley cartridge chosen by our fabulously talented DT sister Lori Warner. Hopefully you've come from Lori's BLOG which is the beginning of our fabulous hop! Instead of a card this time I decided to use my BIA and make a shopping notepad (or it could be a mini album). I just happened to be talking to my friend Margie on the phone while designing this project and I was complaining that I didn't have all of the layers I wanted and she suggested using the tab feature (shift of the card feature) to get the layer I was looking for and that did the trick. THANKS MARGIE, couldn't have done it without you! I added a mini gel pen attached with a curled ribbon. If you're interested in how that's done, I've explained it in an article for another project HERE.

Inside are pages to jot down your shopping wish list. The title here was welded in Design Studio using one of the Hannah Montana fonts.



Here is the dimensional view. I used mini magnets sandwiched between the popped layers of both the purse body and flap for closure. Now for the good part. Leave a comment here for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate from Custom Crops, to be randomly chosen on Friday, April 2nd and hop on next to my dear and wonderfully creative friend Carole's blog. BTW, there's still time to try out for the BBTB2 design team. The entries so far are fabulous and I can't wait to see who will be joining us. Also, check out the BBTB2's current contest. The winner will be chose on Friday, April 2nd.
