Creative Circle September Blog Hop and Giveaway



Welcome to the Creative Circle September Blog Hop!  This month we are using the Backpack #2 pattern.  You will have a chance to win this pattern at the end of this post.

It’s a fun, easy pattern that holds 3 cards with envelopes.  I chose to use the Schoolhouse Designer Series paper and Kind Koala stamp set. The cards are the same design in different colors.  They were so much fun to color 🙂

The backpack is large enough to be used for more things than cards.  It could easily hold a gift – and be decorated to suit your recipient!

I put a gift card size pocket on the back –

Creative Circle 3-D

Creative Circle July 2015


I’ve been asked to join the Creative Circle Design Team – focusing on lovely 3-D creations and Stampin UP products.  If you’ve just come from Barb’s post, you’re int he right place! This month’s template is a “murse” – or a man’s purse. You can get your own copy of the template at the end of this post. It’s an SVG file designed by Liz Holloway and I was able to cut it out on my Eclips. (or you can print and cut!)  I chose the Go Wild and Cherry on Top Designer Series paper to make my card holder and cards.

For my closure, I staggered 3 front panels (Go Wild, Tip Top Taupe and Basic Black) and added a closure “button” using Awesomely Artistic.

I used Antique Brads on the handle to help it swing out of the way.

This card uses Flower Shop and Go Wild DSP on a Heavy White base. The leaves are the Bird punch.
