Hybrid Happiness

Hi all! Happy 4th of July to all my American friends! I've got two family get-togethers to attend today, but I got to start my day off with a little papercrafting! And in honor of the 4th, it only seemed fitting to incorporate some stars into my project.

This little purse uses Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Sassy Purse #3 Template Set, as well as a new digi paper pack by Sarah Jones called Pish Posh Paper Pack. Y'all know my love affair for aqua and brown, so how could I refuse this paper? How fun are those zebra stripes? The whole collection of paper has a mouthwatering color palette that I can't wait to play a little more with. Olive and coral and ruby and aqua and brown and saffron. Yum!

The template made it so easy, so there's not a whole lot to talk about here. I stamped the You're Amazing sentiment from Thankful Blossoms on a classic oval cut out and layered it on a scalloped oval. The punches are the large and small star punches from SU! and I added some star rhinestones I had in my stash. I attached the handle with a star punch and a chocolate corduroy brad and then decided to hang some stars from the handle with clear plastic beading wire. The polka dot bows on top hide the place where I punched a hole through the handle and tied down the beading wire.

Then I made a super simple matching card. I loved the way that my friend Karrie used the negative space from her star cutout on this card, so I had to try it here with my punches. Then I just finished off the super simple card with a polka dot ribbon. Easy peasy! Hope y'all have a fabulous rest of today!
