The Crafty Creations Challenge this week was set by Amy; here is what she has to say:
Bonjour! and thanks for joining us for our latest challenge at Crafty Creations. The theme this week is anything but a card, with a Paris theme. A few members of the design team are visiting the City of Light which inspired the idea.
Our sponsor, Black Leaf Studios is back! :
I knew I wanted to make a purse for this challenge using my Forever Young Cricut Cartridge. I used the images supplied by Black Leaf Studios (Poodle in Paris set) and made a collage of them in Picasa 3(free editing software), and printed it on white cardstock for the face of the purse. The whole front is flat piece, but the collage effect makes it look like there are layers! Isn’t that cool?!
I used the image collage as the face of the purse by cutting it out with the Cricut. <flower 5> Purse feature shift at 5 1/2″, using the center point button to make sure it cut around the image that I had printed on 81/2″ x 11″ cardstock.
The purse itself was cut from Grey textured cardstock. <flower9> Purse feature using FIT TO PAGE on 12″ x 12″ cardstock.
I added a few pink rhinestone gems for some Paris chic, and a little Air France tag is tied with embossing thread to the handle.
I really like how this turned out, and I hope you do too!
Join us for the challenge and don’t forget to take a look at what our fabulous DT came up with for this! SO FUN!!
