Just a note...

Hello everyone!  

Did you all enjoy the blog hop last weekend?  Our design team is so creative.  A lot of diverse projects from all the designers.  It was a lot of fun.

Today I have a really cute purse note card holder for you.  Now I didn't design the purse.  I found the pattern over at the Team KNK forum.  This was posted by Deb M.  It is such a cute idea I had to give it a try.

But first, here are the project lyrics:

Fairy Flower Princess 
Recollections paper in tan, bright orange, hot pink, lime green
Petaloo purple glitter sheets
Doodlebug Design Tangerine chevron orange glitter paper
DCWV Pocketful of Posies designer stack
K&Co. Embossed Specialty Papers

The first thing I did was make this project bigger.  The original is for 4.25 by 4.25 cards and I wanted A2.  (i think this is where i started having problems, my dimensions are off)  So I cut out all of my pieces and made the inside card holders.

Time to put this purse together.  The orange glitter paper has what is called a sugar coating.  Not one of all the glues I had would actually stick.
orange paper on reverse
 OK, now what to do...(only had bought 2 sheets of this dang blasted stuff thank goodness)  Well, I went out to the garage and rummaged through the sand paper.  Found some fine grit and sanded all of the edges to get this sugar krap off.  Finally able with the help of Mr. Elmer to glue down the purple edges.  (had to sand off each and every area that I wanted to glue, big pain)

The rest of the purse went together pretty well.  Until I got to the placement of the enlarged pockets.  They just would line up right.  Finally got it to work.  Purse done and now on to the note cards.  Nothing really fancy, just nice every day cards.  BUT...I did find some tape that is double sided with a waxed paper backing that I put on the envelopes.  I really didn't like sending out a project that the recipient had to tape the envelope closed.

So here are the final project pics.

So I am finished with this project.  Now some important news.  I will be (in the coming weeks) re-designing the blog and adding some new places to see and read about rhapsodyonpaper.  It's time and I really need to add social media buttons for everyone.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Leave a comment and let me know.  Who knows, I just might mention you in a post.

Take care everyone, bright blessings, Jana
