Oval Accent Purse

It has been crazy busy around here lately! I feel like I haven't stopped for about a month. I'm hoping my batteries don't run out for another couple of weeks, and then I'll be taking a lie-down! LOL
My New Catalogue Launch Party was yesterday, and I had 45 lovely ladies come and spend the afternoon/evening with me. There was champagne, stamping (of course!), lots of oohing and aahing over new goodies, lots of special offers, prizes and a goody bag to take home. Seeing my house filled with people who really 'get' this is such a buzz :o)
To make up for my absence last week, I'll be blogging every day this week to show you some of the fun stuff from my Launch party.
Here's one of the items they received in their goody bag:

It's a little purse, made using the Oval Accent Die. I just scored it twice, a few millimetres either side of the centre and popped a little fun size pack of Smarties in there (held on using a dimensional). I decorated it using Betsy's Blooms wheel (Baja Breeze), a strip of Patio Party DSP, a flower from Betsy's Blossoms, a Butterfly Embosslit (Primrose Petals) and a Bitty Banner. I made the handle using the small chubby oval punch (I know that's not it's proper name, but that's what we affectionately call it around here!).
Here's a side view:

By the way, for all the US readers out there, our Smarties are candy-coated chocolate, similar to m&ms, not the candy rolls that you guys have!


  1. Thanks Marelle for a lovely afternoon yesterday. I wondered what was in that little purse, yummy!!

  2. I'm sorry I missed the Launch Party yesterday, Marelle, it sounded like lots of fun. I only realised when I looked at the calendar late this afternoon, I have been a bit distracted this week though and today was rather emotional. Helen
