The Crazy Crafters May Blog Hop - Sneak Peek theme

Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! This months theme is all about some of the new products that were available on a super special Sneak Peek just for demonstrators.  All the new products go live on June 2nd, so be sure to hop over to my online store so you can see all the amazing new items - this is the best catalogue I've seen in my 5 years with SU.

I have created a few cards today using the Layered Letters Alphabet Photopolymer stamp set.  It has so many uses too. I love how with the clear photopolymer sets you can see what you're inking and stamping - below you'll see a cool tip from me.
I've also joined the latest craze and made a carry bag for my cards - which is in the shape of a handbag! Its really easy - I have adjusted the measurements for Australian C6 cards - I saw the idea from Linda Bauwin - really cool!!

Here are my creations...
 
For more info on this card - click here

Love this bag!! To make this size bag you will need half a sheet of  dsp (6x12")
x3 - 3/4 x 12" carstock (rims)
x2 - 3/4 x 10" carstock (handles)
x1 - 2 1/2 x 5 1/4"" carstock (base, scored at 1/2" around to make a base)
Carolina's Tip's and Techniques
I used some of the other letters and characters in the alphabet set to create the extra little pieces on my Hungry Caterpillar - the letter 'V' for the antennae, the exclamation dot '!' for the nose, and the letter 'I' for the legs - here's how...
Clear view of what I'm inking makes making other shapes easy!
 

Please leave me a comment I'd love to hear what you think
Up next we have Sue Wdowik, hop on over to see her beautiful creations.

    1. Hi Maggie, thank you! I used the cupcake punch for the pot and a piece of linen thread behind it for the handle, the hearts are cut from gold glimmer paper using the heart border punch. :)
