Birthday goodies!

Since life if finally starting to slow down a bit I actually have a chance to post about these!  My daughter wanted something special for goodies for her overnight guests and after she saw the video on using the Forever Young cartridge to make a purse with cards we knew that's what we wanted to do.  Since I do not have that cartridge, I turned to my trusty Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I wanted to make 3x3 cards with envelopes to go in the bags so I used my Gypsy to manipulate the bag to accomodate a square card, rather than a rectangle.  I also used the Create a Critter cartridge for the cute flowers on the front.  I ran the blue cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder and I think that helped dress it up a little.  The cards were all made basically from scraps that I had.  The stamps on them are from Clear Dollar Stamps and the sentiments were from Papertrey Ink.  It was a lot of work putting them together but I think they came out pretty cute :)
