Here is the purse bag I made today.....

This is my first effort so please be forgiving, particularly of the photos!!

I enjoyed making this bag and have altered it with different handles and also by using a magnetic closure.

I am quite happy with this pattern and it will make lovely gifts being the perfect size to hold a set of matching cards.

Purse projects.....

I love making various bags from the cricut machine. There are so many patterns, templates and ideas availalble. Tags, Bags, Boxes and more is one of my favourite carts to use.
The purse I have chosen today is compliments of two different artists one is from and is available with directions on is the link...
The other I believe is the original artist (Becky Roberts) at

The little purse I am making requires the cricut accent cartridge and is a very clever creation!!!

I will post the finished product later today.....stay tuned

Merry Christmas.....

Hi Everyone, well Christmas has been and almost gone...

I have to apologise for not having posted for such a long New Years resolution is to be very regular on my posts and not to neglect this fantastic hobby!!!
There are so many new "toys" out there for us cricut lovers.....the Gypsy and so many cartridges and not to forget SCAL 2 and now "Make the Cut" which was my Christmas gift to myself....I could not resist!!!!

I hope you have all had a happy and safe year and look forward to lots of comments and sharing over 2010.

Locally I am planning to develop a "cricut users group", so if any of you read this and are interested please let me know. This would be established locally in the Maffra - Sale area and I am hoping can be run from Maffra Community House which is now located at the Maffra District Hospital site. Stay tuned!!!

I am very excited to have recieved three new carts over Christmas......Hello Kitty, Winter Wonderland and Everyday Paper Dolls. The latter will be so much fun...especially after seeing the kids all playing guitar hero etc...great guitarist on this cart and also for us nurses there is a gorgeous nurse!!! lol

Anyway, on a serious note, I will be back soon and hope to post regularly and with some new creations!!!
