My Stampin’ Up! demonstrator pre-order arrived filled with goodies from the Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Catalog (starts June 1).  At the top of my “must have” list was the Petite Purse Bigz L Die and Bright Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  I was able to whip up these simple and hip purses with a quick trip through the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

  • Each purse measures approximately 2 7/8″ x 1 3/4″ x 1 3/8″ at it’s widest point and the body assembles with two small pieces of Stampin’ Up! Sticky Strip.  Even the strap pops out of the die ready to go!
  • The Petite Purse accommodates treats, jewelry, small gifts and more.
  • Endless possibilities.  Consider this cutie for wedding or party favors, a Mother’s Day table setting, baby or bridal showers, a cute thank you, mini back packs for teachers or a little surprise package tucked in a wee one’s lunch box!
  • You’ll want to be sure to get the Stampin’ Up! Premium Crease Pad to ensure a clean die cut and perfect score lines (with no cut through)
  • So you gotta be asking yourself about those darling Summer Smooches Fabric Designer Brads, right?   I’m imagining them as a dishy centerwith the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set (Wood-Mount 125535, Clear-Mount 125537) and Blossom Punch (125603).  The Summer Smooches Fabric Designer Brads will ONLY be available for a limited time:  April 1 – April 30.
