One of the things I LOVE about the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab is that it often helps me overcome scrappers block. I have a niece getting married this October and I volunteered to make the bridal shower favors. I had picked up some DCWV 12 x 24 adhesive backed paper on clearance at JoAnn's with just such a project in mind. I knew I wanted to cut the paper purses from the Cricut Bags, Tags, Boxes and More Cartridge, and fill the purse with some hand made cards for the favors. So, last month I cut out 30 purses and scored them. Then set them aside, when I hit my scrappers block.
I knew I wanted to embellish the purse, but how? It could not be too detailed because I need at least 30. And then what to do with the cards? So, I saw Moxie's Tuesday Trigger and knew what I wanted: Doilies! Below is the Moxie Fab Inspiration Card: Merci by Tina Fussel.
Oh, doilies are such a big trend right now. Isn't this Die-Namics High Tea Doily fabulous tucked under the purse flap? And I have to tell you my ribbon story! I was out visiting a friends garage sale last month and stumbled upon a cookie jar full of gorgeous ribbon for $2.00. Ok, so if your counting I have spent $18.00 for 30 purses and 60 cards, and I don't need adhesive as the paper already has it! So, I am keeping the cards simple, just a bit of embossing with the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, the thank you stamp is Close to My Heart Solo T, the Hello is SRM stickers. The brown flower is CTMH and white flower is also from Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I love using my Cricut for such a mass production! I cut all 30 purses at my S.C.R.A.P. Guild meeting in June. So, quick and easy and just the thing to take to a crop! I can use the auto fill to cut my flowers and the use of squares and rectangles make the the cards quick and easy too! Now I need only make 58 more cards by the end of August!
