My upline, Susan Elise, shared these purses at a regional meeting and I just had to teach them to my customers and now I can't seem to stop making them in EVERY color! I used a variety of patterns when "etching" the embossing powder, so that I could show my customers different looks.

  1. Wow! I wanna know how you did the umbrella, the wrislet and the gift card!! These are all incredible!!!! Beautiful work!!

  2. Oh my goodness - they're amazing. I thought those were leather wristlets!!
    Fantastic work!!

  3. If you email for directions, I will send them. As a new blogger, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to get the directions in. Everytime I try to copy and paste them from my Word file, it says there is something in them not allowed. Sorry!
