….was decorating a Sonia handle purse with Paper, stickers and printed acetate from Narratives Oceanside collection. Purse and paper can be found in the Creative Imaginations shop. You can also find Bare Element merchandise at Eclectic Paperie.

I thought this paper was perfect for the pictures I took this March when we went to the beach.

I traced the sides of the purse onto the scrapbook paper and cut it out. Then I added Aegan Blue DewDrop ink on the edges of the purse and let it dry.

I used mod podge to adhere the paper to the purse. Then I added sticker and StarDust stickles (front sand dollar) and added another mod podge layer. The clear round stickers are from A Muse. You can find them in Ellen Hutson’s store.


I only covered the inside lid with matching paper. I left the rest of the inside blank.

Check out the special gallery Creative Imaginations started for the SCS design team. You will find some incredible work there!

I am sitting here stamping a card with Bundle of Joy. I am puzzled as to what the stamp with the two dots on it is for! Can you believe that? It’s bugging me that I can’t figure it out!
