Bonjour from Paris :)

Last week I focused on Valentine's Day cards.  I hope you enjoyed that.  This week I will be showing you cards I made using our Artistic Etchings Set.  It has a romantic Paris sort of feel to it.  This is one of those stamp sets that did not catch my eye in the catalog, but after I saw this Class planner offered by Angela McKay, I had to have it.  The items you will see this week are the ones we made at my stamp camp last Friday night.   If you are in N. AL check my calendar to see when my next class is.


Here is the adorable purse we made.  I especially love the dog tag :)  If you own a Big Shot, I highly recommend getting our Tasteful Trim Die.    It was used to make the trim on the top and bottom of the bag.  You'll see it again on another card this week. 
 For all of you Alabama Fans, this designer paper has a houndstooth pattern in black and white and with our Riding Hood Red paper, you could make the most adorable Alabama Bag.  Let me know if I can help you make it! I'll see if I can make one this week.

Here's a quick video on how to layer using our decorative label punch.  I said in the video it was the modern label punch.  I was wrong...sorry :)
