Ok...let's get started!  I've had a lot of fun working on my Girly project over the last few days...


These cute little purses are going to be Christmas gifts for my granddaughter and her new step-sister.  I started out with plain, unfinished wooden boxes in the shape of a purse that I found at Michael's...


I spray painted the boxes with black paint first.  Next I traced the shape of each purse onto this fun, Girly patterned paper from the Femme Fatale paper stack by Recollections (great name for a paper stack, huh?).  I trimmed off about a quarter inch all around the lines I traced and distressed the edges of my paper.  Next, I inked up the edges with black ink hoping to give the paper a worn fabric look.  I glued on the front and back pieces to each purse and used my white gel pen to add stitching lines around all the edges.

Ok...for some of the details...


*For each purse I created a "pocket".  I just sort of came up with a shape and embossed it with the Textile Texture embossing folder.  I also added some stitching lines with my white gel pen and that fun rhinestone brad in the center.
* I also ran a strip of tape along the back, top edge of each "pocket" and gathered up my ribbon as I adhered it to the pocket. This gave a nice ruffle effect.
* Using the Paisley Cricut cartridge, I cut sunglasses at 1.5 inches and covered them with Martha Stewart's Sterling glitter.  I also added Glossy Accents to the lens.
* The cute little tag is cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I used the image found on page 50 and cut this tag at 3 inches.  The sentiment is from the Enjoy The Journey stamp set from Pink By Design.  I stamped this is Silver ink and used Stardust embossing powder by Stampendous.
* I added a few clear gems to the handles for a bit more glitz!

Using the Songbird cartridge, I added the girls' monograms to the back of each purse.  This is Emma's....


And this is Joanna's....


And of course, I finished out the inside of each purse...and...added a few goodies....

I used stamps from the Shopaholic and Enjoy The Journey stamp sets from Pink By Design for my tags.  To create the tags, I just free-handed a few shapes then stamped and heat embossed them. A few stitching lines and fabulous ribbon finish up the tags.

And that finishes up my Girly project for you today!  I really had fun with this project and can't wait to see the girls when they open up these gifts!  I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today and I know you are going to love all the great projects the other designers have in store for you today.  But, before you go...I also have a bit of Girly Goodness to share with you today...


For a chance to win this fun Girly stuff...just leave me a comment and become a follower!  I will choose a winner on Friday, September 23rd.  Thanks again for stopping by, your next stop is the fabulously talented Elizabeth at 217 Creations.

Until next time,
Tanya
