This tour is OVER! There will another in July.

I hope you enjoyed the Blog Tour. The links are gone for this tour, so I hope you bookmarked all your favorites. Our next tour will be July 27 and 28. It will coincide with the launch of our yearly catalog, so be sure to stop back here in July for updates! Please subscribe to my blog to continue to get updates. My set to demo is 'Dream A Little' - Stampin' Up's Level III Hostess set. This cute little purse is made using 2 5 1/2" circles. After adhering the Bella Rose Designer Paper (let it dry too) I cut the circles using Circle Scissors. Punch 2 ovals for the handles. Decorate as desired. A small white bag is glued between the circles. Makes a cute gift bag for almost anyone! This card was made using Walk in the Park Designer Paper from the Mini-Occasions. I used contrasting Cameo Coral; Baja Breeze & So Saffron Cardstock. The ribbon is from the SU Dress Up collection. The ribbon on the purse is from that collection as well. This card & envelope was made using Baja Breeze & Going Gray. I cut the ovals using the Big Shot and Nestabilities. The envelope is special made for cards using 'thick' embellishments. I did not plan to mail this so I decorated the envelope. This is a quick sympathy card using the verse from Refuge & Strength Stamp Set. Colors are Going Gray & Real Red. I stamped the flower inside the card but still leaves room to write a note. The front pictures were cut using the dog tag (key punch) punch (SU).

Sympathy cards are so challenging for me to create because of the theme idea itself. You've inspired me to just do it!

Super job! I really liked the cute circle bag. I just got my circle scissor, so I need to practice before making this project. I also liked your use of the key tag punch.
