"As soon as I laid eyes upon the Couture range, I had so many visions of making cute clothes out of it! Too bad I don’t have any barbie dolls left these days, they would be sporting only the best! This piece was very fun! The fussy cut dresses were so easy to use" - Miranda

Anne will now take us on a guided tour of her Couture altered purse and mini album. This is just the perfect project for our fashionistas!

 "Hi everyone :-)

 

I made a purse with a mini album inside. Used the gorgeous Couture papers from Graphic 45 and was in fussy cut heaven while I cut out all the images! So many beautiful ladies, hats, shoes and flowers to use :-)

 

For the handle I used black rose lase. Glued metal wire on the back and black ribbon to cover the wire. Then it is easy to shape the handle.

Used a lot of magnets in this album to hold photo mats and tags.

Now learn how to make the chipboard purse with these great instructions from Anne!

 

"Measurements for the purse and album:

Same shape for the album,but made it 1/2 inch smaller  so the top is 5 1/4- bottom 8 3/4 5 1/2 hay.

 

Used a black paper. scored in half and drew around ( bottom to the score line )with the template so it is double.Then you can make pockets or have it open for an extra page.

Cut out 2 of the shape for the purse in medium weight chipboard.

COUTURE-GRAPHIC 45-NINIALBUM-PURSE-CARD-TAG-BOX-TUTORIAL-ANNESPAPERCREATIONS-ANNE ROSTAD-KREATIV SCRAPPING-SCRAPBOOKING-CRAFT- 14

 Flap and top measurements.

For the bottom on the purse cut out 9 1/4 x 3.

Anne's projects are always a piece of fussy cutting heaven, and this purse/mini is another beautiful example. I really like her color choices for each 2 page LO. I have to admit, I love using a sewing theme and Couture is a lovely paper collection. Thanks, G45! Sure would be nice to win By The Sea...love the colors!

Both of these projects are the kind of thing a grandmother of two young ladies can see as gifts down the line... Both of the girls love my handmade gifts which makes it even better! Thanks, G45!! Thanks, too, for a chance to win your beautiful papers and embellishments.

How lovely. Great projects today.

Both progects were absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to try making the purse. Thank you for sharing so many creative ways to use Graphic 45 papers. They are my favorite. I look forward to seeing what you guys have in store fore the new papers.

These projects are amazing!

What inspiration we have here, LOVE IT ALL! Thanks for all the eye candy!

Such lovely and dramatic Couture projects today. Loved them. It would be a great Valentine's Day if I won this week's great prize. This will be our 50th Valentines Day together. So you can see it would take something really special to top that.

The "By the Sea" collection SO reminds me of summer and I can't wait for the cold winter months to end and the flowers start to appear! This collection reminds me of vacations spent at the beach and all of the fun we had.

Fun.....fun....fun projects!!!!! Can't wait to make myself.

Beautiful colours on these two collections, hard to choose which is my favourite, would love to win the By the Sea set.
