A Bella Clutch

>> Friday, May 29, 2009

Hi everyone! Sorry new stuff never went up on the "feeding the habit" blog. My camera wouldnt charge for me, so i was stuck. I think it's charged now though so i'll be off to take more pictures after i get this post up. :)

This is my entry for Lauren Meader's My Timeless Template challenge over at Stampin Out Alzheimer's event

I also needed to create something for the Bella Club meeting at Funkie Munkie Scraps this saturday. Did you know you can use Lauren's templates like that? You can! You just have to keep all copyright into printed onto the template! And i thought her templates would be perfect since we need a project to do, but it's isnt really a full on class. PERFECT! And i'm hoping that the ladies in the club will realize how perfect Lauren's Templates are and go purchase some of their own! :)

I used her Purseonality Clutch template to create this little bella clutch! Inside I've filled it with stamped out bella images, some baubles and other emBELLAshments and something that every girl needs.... CHOCOLATE! :)

Here's the finished project...






I was really pleased with how it came out and how fast it was able to come together! I printed the bottom out on Bazzill Cardstock (that i forgot to check the color on, SORRY!) and then the top (a separate template design making it super easy to have 2 colors) onto Bittersweet Bazzill Cardstock. The patterned paper i cut slightly smaller and then adhered it to the top side of the template centering it where i wanted and THEN i scored it. It makes it a lot easier to adhere it first so that way the score lines are perfectly fit together! I then ran it thru my sewing machine to give that true purse look. :) I followed this same process to the handle.

The bella is the mini Contentobeabella that comes with the larger version. She was the PERFECT size for this project!!!!
