These purses hold a Hershey Nugget. They are tiny and so simple to make. I made them for my daughter's birthday party. How sweet!

Here is a link to directions on how to make these Nugget Purses. This blog is for a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I love all of her tutorials and videos.

School Inchie Swap

I joined a swap for 'School Theme Inchies' and came up with these. The edges are all brushed with a brown stamp pad to make them look a little rustic. I used my George Cricut Cartridge to cut out the star and the letter A. It was harder to come up with school inspiration because I do not have stamps or a school cartridge. I actually thought about this until the last minute and finally came up with this layout. I was happy with how they turned out and can't wait to see how the rest of the swap members did.
In all I made 200 inchies for two seperate swaps. I am glad I took the time to learn how to do inchies. I have joined swaps to learn different techniques and to be inspired by other crafters. So far I have learned a lot and really appreciate all the helpful people out there.

Kids Inchies

This was the first time I made inchies. I had read about them and saw a chance to join a swap. I had no idea what to make at first, but decided that since I had a little girl I should make little girl inchies. These would go on so many of my pages. I used the cricut to make the butterfly and flower. Then I used a tiny punch of my daughter's to make flower cut outs on the green paper and added pink to the background. It was a lot of work. I made 50 of each, plus a few extras. My thumb was killing me from the dollar store hole punch, but I love how they turned out.

Valentine Paper Doll Swap

I just got the Paper Doll Dress-up Cartridge for my Cricut. I love it. These dolls were made for a Valentine Paper Doll 3x3 Swap I was in. My five year old daughter helped me design them. She chose the dress, the paper for the dress, and the hairstyle and color. I love how they turned out. I had been making 4 inch dolls and decided that 3 inches is perfect for these dolls. I will start making all of mine in 3 inch from now on.
