Mother's Day Gift Set

Mother's Day is just around the corner so I made this set for my mom. Thanks, Mama for a great challenge and a little push to get a head start with my Mother's day project! Mama is the hostess for this week's Monday Monia over at Club Anya and Friends. I just have to play along because I love 3D items! Yup, I am like Mama, a 3D person. I love seeing everyone's amazing cards but I love to see more than just cards. I am always amazed at what we can do with papers.
This set includes a purse (approximately 11 x 8 x 4, a real size purse), a mini accordion album (4 1/2 x 4 1/2), a wallet (4 1/2 x 4 1/2), and a card. I bought the purse template from a show show last year and never gotten around to it. I used 3 12 x 18 patterned papers by the way and it was barely enough.

The wallet, I basically used one of my wallet as a template. For the card, I followed the sketch over at Flutterby Wednesday and the sketch for the mini album is from Cute Card Thursday.

I had lots of fun putting this set together. I think I started on Thursday night. I finished all except the mini album last night. I worked on the album today, which it didn't take me long since I kept it pretty plain.

The complete set...


This is a mini accordin album....

....pictures of my babies...
The purse template is from Darcie's but I altered it a little because I didn't like the original handle.

This is the wallet... I still haven't set up my mini sewing machine so I hand-stitched this wallet. And boy, did it take me a long time!

I used velcro for closure but I think I'll use magnet next time....just to see the difference...



Well, I hope everyone enjoys looking at my project! I am still in the process of organizing my craft space so I am going to be MIA for a little....again. :D I am almost done with organizing my nesties. Can you imagine how many sets I was able to store in one of those plastic clear binders? I think well over 18 sets! Wow! I am also done with organizing my loose ribbons as well. I will try to take pictures of how I did them soon. There is still so much to do! Anyway...

As always, thanks a bunch for visiting! Have a great one, everyone!


Challenges:

Allsort: butterfly bracelet photo inspiration
Tamiko's: use nesties. I used several different nesties for my project
Your Next Stamp: stitching
There She Goes: Tag you are It. The tag is on the card
