Surprise Purse

Good morning lovelies, it's not often I'm here here on a Monday but I just
had to share this little project with you all!

This is Surprise Purse from the Spring & Summer Templates CD Rom

Template banner

available from La Pashe

Here's the inside of the purse, as you open it, the inside panel pops up
to reveal a little gift card, cash or whatever you choose to put inside!
(in this case a gift card for a local restaurant)
To make this little project I used papers from Papermania, 
a little pearl ribbon slider & some ribbon from my stash.
As I don't have a cutting machine, I used the PNG file, hand cut
& used super sticky DST to stick it together.

The lovely Jak Heath will be on Create & Craft TV at 9am & 2pm today
20/01/13, to demo the CD-Rom & let you see just some of the 30 projects you can create!
The files are in both PDF & SVG format, they come with easy to follow instructions
& are fantastic fun to make!

Tune in to Sky 671, Virgin 748, Freeview 36 or Freesat 813
at 9am & 2pm
email in during the live show for a chance to win one of the projects that Jak 
will be making on the show -
You can also watch it online at

Don't hang about if you want this great little CD-Rom, 
I reckon it's going to be very popular!
