Sassy Purse Album

My friend Susan has inspired me many times! in the few years I have "known" her. I appreciate you Susan!! The most recent way in which she inspired me was to post pictures of a great project she created! Check out Susan's take on this fun purse. Be sure to follow her link to the site she found her purse on! It is a funny small world this crafting place we love : )

Several years ago I was introduced to this purse at a Stampin' Up workshop. I fell in love with it!!

Coincidentally to Susan's post I had just finished creating this "sassy purse" for my sweet great niece, Emma. Emma loves pink and orange. I had already photographed my purse before I saw Susan's purse so I didn't get a picture of some of the differences but I will describe them:

My purse is really a mini album which you begin to create using two 6x6 envelopes - these envelopes then create a sleeve for the extra photos sheet. The back of my purse doesn't have an extra piece of paper concealing the ribbon handles because on mine you use SU grommets to thread your ribbon through. The grommets look... sassy! : ) I think the only other difference is that I created the scallops for the purse flap and cut them with my "Storybook" Cricut cartridge.

I chose a variety of fun and "sassy" papers.

All punches used: corner punch and scallop punch, circle punch, ticket punch and tab punch are all SU products.

And my giggling little miniature
Emma is an oldie but a goodie from Stampin Up as well.

I hope you will enjoy seeing this great project and you'll try one yourself they are easy peasy!!
Let me know if I can help.

BIG (((Hugs))) Susan!

I love this purse. OMG....this would be so stinking cute for Allison.
Okay I get the two 6x6 parts. What did you use for the bottom and top?
Wasn't quite sure.
Your paper and details are wonderful.
