Summer Smooches Petite Purse Sneak Peek

I loved the Petite Purse Big Shot Die (from the upcoming Summer Smooches promotion) the minute I saw it.  My hang-up?  I have two rambunctious little boys, with no girls in sight!
Stampin' Up!'s version
It didn't take much brainstorming before I saw an old-style fishing basket instead, so I went ahead and added it to my pre-order, which arrived earlier this evening.  (One of the perks of being a demo is I get a chance to play with the newest products before they're available).

So here's my first shot at a fishing basket with the Petite Purse Die...

Petite Purse Die, Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, 1" circle punch,
linen thread, 5-Petal Flower and Boho Blossoms punches, Basic pearls,
Crumb Cake and Early Espresso and Brushed Silver Cardstock,
 black permanent marker, bamboo skewer
I didn't even finish my fishing basket before I saw an old-fashioned doctor's bag...
Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red cardstock, Petite Purse Die, Big Shot,
1" circle punch, letter "t" from Alphabet Simple Letters die set
 Of course, looking at that doctors bag now, I think it could use some "rivets" or something, but I got wrapped up in my next idea of making the Stampin' Up! Doctor's Bag (for the Big Shot)....
Petite Purse Die, Big Shot, DSP from (retired, but available on MDS) Love Letters,
tiny little Stampin' Up! logo cut from stamp label sheet in clear mount sets
 And I'm still not sure how I then made the jump to a diaper bag, but there you have it!  All of these cute little boxes, without a "purse" in sight!
Petite Purse Die (x2), Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Packed For Baby stamp,
Victoria Crochet Trim, 1/8" Taffeta ribbon in Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz cardstock, Stampin' Write markers
 This fun little die isn't available for purchase until April 1st, so you might as well get your workshop booked now and earn it for free!  Or, you can always join my team today and place your own pre-order tomorrow - the $125 Starter Kit special expires March 31st, so there's still time!

Happy Stampin'!

Love the amazing ideas you have come up :) Can't wait to use the baby diaper bag idea for some upcoming baby showers!!!!!!!!!! I was on the fence about buying this die until I saw your blog and realized there is so much more you can make with it. Thanks :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think this die will fit into my machine, otherwise, I would buy it in a heartbeat. These 'purses' are all amazing. WAY to ROCK a die!

Hi! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work?

I'm brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
Thankyou!

Sorry for the delayed response, but I was in the hospital for a couple of weeks there.

To answer your question - blogging is not much work, once you've set up your site, which can be done for free (mine is free from Blogger) or you can pay someone to build/maintain your site.
My best advice is to just jump in and get started, then support your site with a facebook page and you-tube channel. Post consistently and you're good to go!

Terry, I'm not sure where the issue lies, as I don't see any problem viewing with Firefox. Sorry to any readers having an issue, as I can't fix what I can't see :(
