My Pink Designer Day ~ March 2012

Welcome to this month's edition of My Pink Stamper's Design Team Day!  Our theme for this month:
Spring is in the AIR!!!! Let's welcome Spring with the colors YELLOW, GREEN & BLUE. You may use other colors but must have Yellow, Green and Blue somewhere in the project. You must also have some type of Butterfly in your project.

For my project, I created a  charm necklace packaged in a mini purse:

Materials Used:
  • Imagine cartridge Lori's Garden
  • Cricut cartridge Girl's Makeup Party
  • My Pink Stamper's Pinka-licious stamp set
  • Shrinky Dink material
  • Jewelry fundamentals (jump rings in assorted sizes)
  • Misc. beads
  • BazzillBasicsPaper self-adhesive jewels in artesan pool
  • Ranger Distress Ink in crushed olive
  • American Crafts heavy weight cardstock in white
Steps to create the purse:

Flood fill the purse from Cricut cartridge Girl's Makeup Party with pattern from Imagine cartridge Lori's Garden.

Score the purse folds as shown.

Punch two holes on the top score lines.

String necklace through the holes (you can also use ribbon)

Add embellishments and sentiment from My Pink Stamper's "Pinka-licious" stamp set.

And here is a closer view of the charm I created using the Imagine cartridge Lori's Garden and shrinky dink material.  I used the tutorial provided by the talented Nadia at With Glittering Eyes to create my charms and then just added beads as desired.
Thank you for joining me today.  I hope you are inspired to try something new.
