Inking It Up Crazy Birthday Bash Guest Design

Happy Birthday Kassidy!  It's a Birthday Bash all month long at Inking It Up Crazy!  Kassidy is celebrating her Birthday in style with all her friends!  There are giveaways and guest designers everyday in June so stop by and join in the fun!
I am so excited about Guest Designing again this month for Kassidy!  Today Kassidy's favorite item is Brads & Eyelets!  I love making bags and boxes, so I was thrilled when I heard my assignment!  Here is my brads/eyelets project!
I made a set of 3x3 whale cards with a matching bag to hold them!

The large whales were cut at 7.5", layered, outlined, stickled and I added button shaped brads for the eyes!  I made a simple box and attached the two whales to it to form the bag.

I used Stampin' Up! Jumbo Eyelets to attach the handles to the bag.  I was trying to catch a picture of this Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon.  It is Black Diamond from My Craft Spot and I love it because it has a fine mist of glitter on it!  It looks fantastic in person!

The whales on the cards are cut at 2.65", layered, outlined, stickled, and I added small black brads for the eyes.  The background is embossed with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder, then I added eyelets, bakers twine and a blue button.  The tag is hand cut, stitched and stamped with "smile" from My Craft Spot's Inside & Out Set #1.

I added a lot of Dimensionals to get my layers, so many layers that these cards are hard to fit in the envelopes, but they sure are cute!

Products Used:
  • Bazzill Cardstock
  • Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge
  • My Craft Spot Black Diamond Crinkle Ribbon
  • My Craft Spot Baby Blue Bakers Twine
  • My Craft Spot Inside & Out Set #1
  • Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder
  • Stampin' Up! Jumbo Brads and Journaler pen
  • Brads and Buttons from Michael's
  • Stickles
Make sure you swing by Inking it Up Crazy, check out her giveaway for today and wish Kassidy a very Happy Birthday Month!  Thank you Kassidy for having me today and have a wonderful and fun month long Birthday Bash!  Thanks for stopping by!
