More Purses . . .

Happy Saturday All!

Since Friday is my laundry day and I was waiting for the lawn to get drier from the overnight rain shower so I could mow, I took the opportunity and cut out/made three more of those fabulous little purses that I shared with you yesterday.  This time I added a tag and/or charm along with the tassel.  What do you think?

I have a TON of designer papers that I think would work great for these purses and I can't wait to cut more and see how they turn out!  They are so much fun to create and closer to the Fall Show time, I will purchase a bag of Hershey Kisses and fill each purse.    

That just brought a thought to my mind ... MAYBE I should stamp the word 'kisses' on the tag for a few!  What do you think?

I also want to give a shout out to my friend Anne (Anne-Made) for her inspiration and enabling of the purchase of this die also.  Be sure to click on her name and see the beautiful purse she made.  They are all just a 'little bit different' one to the other!  AND, she even made her own designer paper before cutting ... really cool!  Be sure to check it out!

If you're interested in purchasing this die for yourself, here's the link:

Time to get busy ... first project of the day is to spread the next treatment on our lawn while the dew is still on the grass ... then I REALLY need to get a birthday card for hubby's birthday (tomorrow - yikes) and THEN I can play with more purses & cards.

Have a great weekend everyone!  
And please, please, please stay safe & healthy!  We aren't through this pandemic yet so be careful not to let your guard down no matter what our government officials say in regards to opening back up the economy.  We STILL need to continue social distancing, wearing masks and just use common sense!

Thanks for stopping by ...


  1. Oh my how beautiful all of them, thanks for your friend Anne's link so looking forward to seeing hers too and get ideas. Be safe and healthy too.xx

  2. I just love these. The die is out of stock. :(

  3. Great and beautiful purses. All are so realistic too.

  4. These are super cute. So very creative.

  5. I'm still drooling over yesterday's makes. I can't tell you enough how fabulous these are. [Bunny]

  6. Dar..........what are the dimensions of these purses? [Bunny]

  7. Ack! I want them ALL in my purse collection! These will be a HUGE hit at your sale, which I hope will happen for you considering how things are. Who knows? What an awesome die! I don't know if I'd make enough to warrant a purchase, but it sure is fun looking and I'll bet it's fun to make them, too! Wow! Oh, and I do like the little tag attached because they are a gift. You know, I'm thinking you could give a different purse to the same friends or family every year or for different occasions. I'd never get tired of receiving them and it would be fun to collect them. Hmmm... maybe I might purchase the die! You're awesome, Darlene!

  8. OMGoodness, another set of cuties :-) You know, this could be the start of a new collection! Your choice of papers and colours are lovely, Darlene.
    Stay safe and well.

  9. These are so adorable Dar!! You've got plenty to keep you busy during this lock down... Stay well and safe!

  10. You are doing an outstanding job with these purses they look just fantastic, your choices for the purse and straps look so great together and I do like the tags on them too!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
