Top Note Die Purse& Alota 20% off sale use coupon code CWDTCHAL for the month of Jan!!

Today I wanted to share some purses I designed with the Top Note Die cut from SU!

This 1st purse with the darling little girl and her dolly was designed for Alota Rubber Stamps. I used the super sweet image called "Girl with Doll" she is 8.00 mounted, or 4.oo unmounted. You can save 20% off of the 4.00 =3.20 with my coupon code CWDTCHAL for the month of January!! Save 20% off your entire order, just make sure to use the coupon code at checkout, and if you are wanting all unmounted stamps, be sure to add the stamps you want to your cart, and then change them there :) Have fun and happy stamping!!

The flowers were a gift from a friend Cheri online. I love them, and didnt want to use them:) Im funny that way...lol I added some branches, ribbon, and of course the flowers.

This next purse I made to show for the video tutorial I was working on, and ended up needing to do another video, so YES another purse came along!!!LOL

This pink purse is the one I made in the video this morning, and didnt finish decorating it.

I did want to show it due to the Beaded handle I made for it. I wanted to show you that you could use other things, like ribbon, or make your own handle out of whatever you can think of!! Think outside of the box!!

with tim holtz distress inks and this pattern paper I made is called "distressed Krinkle dp"

This pink and brown distressed purse I made last year, when I was try'n to think of a way to make a purse from the top note die. I did distressing with tim holtz distress inks and this pattern paper I made is called "distressed Krinkle dp" I will be doing another video tutorial later to show how I made this dp!! :) Also on this purse I used for the front and the back Matte board for picture framing!!
Here is a Video on how to make my Top Note Purse!

I just left a comment then realized you had a video tutorial. So I watched it. Seems pretty simple. And I have an 11 year old niece who would love one of these. Thanks for showing us how to do it. I will be giving this a try soon.
