Quilted Rag Purses & the Big Shot

Quilted Rag Purses with the Big Shot 003
Quilted Rag Purses are so fun and easy to make with the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Scallop Square die.  Fair warning though, they are additive to make. They're easy enough for a beginner to make and cute enough for the experienced seamtress to love.

Things I Love...

I can still remember the day that my Stampin' Up! starter kit came. My stomach was doing somersalts waiting for the UPS man to deliver my kit. Imagine, my own business.  I couldn't wait to play with all my new business tools.  Then it was there. I anxiously ripped open the box.  Where to begin, did I really get all this?  Wowzers!

Stampin' Up! really knows what you need to start your business right.  And during Sale-a-bration the starter kit is 15% off.  Not to mention, the added bonus of an additional stamp set of your choice.  You'll be ready to hit the ground running.

Let's get together to discuss the possibilities.  We'll do lunch.  Give me a jingle at 419-560-5014 to set a time to get together.  If you're long distant, I love to send you an information packet along with some chocolate and tea to enjoy while you peruse your packet.  Simply email your name, address and phone number. 

Have a fabulous day,
