Hello, inspiration, where are you?

Last week I made this bag and matching "pouch" with my Designer Flirtatious Fabric from Stampin' Up!  I made this especially for my simply scored as it is an awkward size and I just didn't have a pretty bag that it would fit into ;)  The little pouch will be (like a pencil case) for my "all the time tools".

Well as my title suggests, my inspiration has taken a vacation. You know when you "see" an end result in your head and then it turns out to be totally different? Well, that has been what the last few days have been like for me - in all aspects!  My Mojo Monday didn't turn out how I thought it would, so I went and did a Paper Players challenge.  Anyway after both cards I decided that I need to give Crumb Cake a rest for a week or two and go with something brighter and more "cheery" like the "brights" collection.

This is the sketch for Mojo Monday 250

Here's my Mojo

As I mentioned above I have done a Paper Players challenge too.

My creation... Only Crumb Cake and Versamark ink (plus some glue and Stampin Glass Glitter).

I used the adorning accents edgelit die to make the banner, I scored the bit that folds under to raise the main part then glued and glittered the out side edge then when I looked at it I realised that I had done the wrong side! I stamped this side originally (before scoring and glue/glitter) and thought that it looked crooked so I re inked and heat embossed the other side but did not realise that I was finishing off on the wrong side...  grrrrrr 

Until next time, keep stampin' Marls xx


  1. Well, that is a very cool way to use the embosslit! I would not have known it was the wrong side, either! Very clever! Thanks for playing my "wordsmith" challenge this week at the Paper Players!
    Also, if you don't mind turning off your word verification, it makes commenting go much more quickly if we don't have to type in those pesky words! We want you to get as many comments as you deserve!!

  2. Oh, Marlene... I would never have known in was the wrong side! I think it looks awesome. I love that you used the glass glitter around the edge, it really makes a statement.
    Thank you so much for joining the Paper Players this week

  3. You're so clever! (insert my Tami White voice! - I love her btw!)
    I would not have noticed either!
    Love it all....the bag! WOW, you have been busy! Hope you've been wearing tour special cardigan!
    Go girl, love it all!
