CTMH Ariana and Ivy Lane purses

July 13, 2014

Welcome back.

A special warm welcome to my new followers and I hope that you find a lot of inspiration here.  I enjoy trying new ideas and techniques and Close to My Heart has been the catalyst for going to the next level for my crafting.

Today I will be showing some purses that I have made out of Ariana and Ivy Lane papers.  I love these papers and sorry to see them go but I know that there are some amazing new products coming next month.

The idea for these purses as come from Pinterest here.  They were really easy to make up and it took a lot longer to sort out the decorations on them.  To hold the purse together I have used the tiny hook and loop dots from CTMH.  These are great as they are tiny and unobtrusive and hold really well.

CTMH Ariana and Ivy Lane bags.

Here is a close up of both purses:

I have been invited to enter this post on a new challenge website called Take Heart Inspirations Challenges here.  Please visit this site for lots of different ideas using Close to My Heart products.

I am very excited to update you on my shop. It is goodbye to Craft Hutt and hello to Gift Hutt (although I am still waiting for Facebook to change the name) and here is the first ad to go into the local paper.  I love working with the local artists and crafters and it is a real pleasure having their items in the shop.  Most of the items I have been showing on my blog are also for sale at Gift Hutt.  So if you are in Lower Hutt then do pop in and say hello,  I would love to meet you.

Kia Ora Koutou Welcome back.  I don’t know about you but I feel that I have been coming out of hibernation after being in lockdown for so long.  Here in New Zealand we are in the fortunate position of very few new cases and a country opening up again but I am still very wary …
