looking smart

Hi Hermine here,
Don't you have the same problem or is it me. If its only me I sovled at least my own problem hahaha. When I die cut with my Vagabond I always cut some extra, you'll never know if you make a mistake, but always have some leftovers, putting them somewhere in my art room, my biggest problem is that I can;t find them anymore if I want to use them, so I stamped and gessoed on this smart handbag (a project from Club Scrap) and from now on I can put my die cuts in zipperbag and tuck them into the handbag. Works perfectly :o)

step by step:
step 1. take the project out of the packaging (maybe if you are very handy you can make one yourself) and lay flat on your worksurface. Take a stencil of The Crafters Workshop and sponge with gesso on a few places. Then stamp with different colours ink randomly on the cardboard. tamps that I used are: Harlequin diamond background 18920 , Color wheel lines 19338, Bulls eye target solid 19196Bulls eye target open 19193 , Waybill.Invoise bakcground 19416 and put the box together
step 2: stamp with Stazon black on a seperate piece of paper: Slide to unlock 19534 , NY License plate 19544 , Hello my name is tag 19540 and  Girl in princess costume 19536, cut out and colour with distress ink and a waterbrush.
step 3: glue the images onto the box. Fill it and its ready to use.

Hope you like my project.

Warmly Hermine

Very cute practical art. I keep my extra cuts in a little box but keep forgetting to look there first!! Must have a look through and use a few. Hugz

This bag is so cute I'd be tempted to take it with me out of the house! I keep my extra die cuts in zip lock bags but don't really have a system of organizing them so I need to get something going! It doesn't help to have them if you can't find them!
