Little Lady's Big Purse

I'm excited to be participating in my first Blog Hop! Designer Eileen Hull has been hard at work with Sizzix and what you will be seeing on different blogs, are soon to be released Scoreboard Dies. Instead of regular cardstock most dies cut, these new dies cut & score mat board to create a dimensional works of art. Artists will be posting a new scoreboard treat every other Wednesday and everyone of them will be soooooo different! There will be inspiration enough to go around the block several times!

A special treat: Vote for your favorite project on Eileen's blog and leave a comment on any participating designer's blog and YOU COULD BE A WINNER! The ScoreBoard die used in the project will be given to the designer whose project gets the most votes, and one viewer who leaves a comment will receive a ScoreBoard die from the first Sizzix ScordBoard collection. To qualify to win, you must write a comment on any of the participating designers' sites.

Voting ends the Monday following the Wednesday hop at 6 PM.

This is the first sample to begin the Blog Hop off right.


To throw a challenge in the mix, Eileen had us include some kind of office supply item into our design. To keep you from seaching too hard, the item I used were 2 fastner circles with fastners. When I looked at the blank scoreboard before me, I saw a little girls purse with some of her momma's make up in it. Of course she threw in her pony tail holder as well as her necklace.


Covering the scoreboard with Peppermint Rain Drops textured paper (The Paper Company) with Zip Dry adhesive by Beacon......the little purse began to take shape. Using RockCandy Studios copper Dresden Foil, I trimmed the entire purse, including the scalloped areas to highlight them. Decorative pink beaded trim was added because EVERY little girl deserves BLING. Since copper was my main metal used, I coiled some copper 18 gauge wire and fastened it down with Making Memories flowers. Copper jump rings & chain complete the purse!



Remember to VOTE on your favorite project & you could be a WINNER! Go to Eileen Hull's website & look over the other designers projects & cast your vote!
FTC: Material Disclosure: I have a material connection to Sizzix and Eileen Hull. I received samples of the product above to use for this blog post.
