The Greeting Farm August Preview: OA Surprise!

Surprise, surprise!! Today we are previewing OA Surprise set at The Greeting Farm!

What EXPLOSION I have to share? Well, an explosion purse! I found this tutorial a while back and attempted to make some samples...just never got a chance to finish them. LOL I got one done today as you can see! LOL

I used Amelia for this purse. I even used her to make this patterned paper! I simply randomly stamped her all over the cardstock.

I even make a mini card to match this purse! I actually stamped Amelia on white cardstock and shrank her to 50%. I used the copier by the way since my scanner is still no hooked up yet. Yeah, I know it has been months already. LOL

Here is how it looks once you open the purse. It's big enough to hold a few goodies.

Inside the purse, I made two pockets, one for the mini card and another one for a gift card.

Here is how it looks once you remove the card.

So what do you think? This make a wonderful birthday present, don't you think? hehe

Don't forgot about TGF's THREE YEAR celebration blog hop!!!
