Maddy at the Mall

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!!! Hope you're enjoying our new designs!! Just wanted to let you know that we now have all the new designs up on our website...so, hop on over and take a look!!!

Our new design for today is Maddy at the mall. I have the pattern for this little purse that you can download here.



Just cut the main pattern piece along the solid lines and fold along the dotted ones. There's another rectangular pattern piece that is the part that holds the gift cards/money. For this piece, cut the slits in the cardstock before you fold along the dotted lines...make as many slits as you want...this is where you can slide the gift cards in. Use double stick tape along the sides and bottom of this piece and stick it on the center section of the main piece.


To attach the handle, I used a slot punch ON the fold line between the flap and center section of the purse (one punch on each side). Then I slipped one end of a 14" piece of ribbon through each slot and tied a knot to hold the handle in place. Use velcro to close the flap.

ok...now that the instructions are done, let's get to the fun part!! Leave a post by Wednesday, July 2 (Hawaii time) and I'll draw one winner at random to win one "Maddy at the Mall" stamp. Tell me the first place you would go if you had $1000 to spend. I'll announce the winner on Thursday morning July 3!!!! (Is it July already?!?!?!)

Jean - another cute idea! Maddy at the Mall is another cute image.
If I won $1,000 - I would want a Coach handbag so I would hit the Waikele Coach outlet.

With a $1000 dollars to spend...I would go to the Food Bank and leave $500 for them to spend and pass out $200 in $20 dollar bills to the homeless near my office and with the rest look for a sewing machine. Love all your new stamps

What a cute idea for the Maddy at the Mall stamp.
If I won $1000 I think I would pick up some stamping stuff that I've been wanting without worrying about the cost.

I love your line of Maddy stamps. If I had $1,000 I would go to Ala Moana Shopping Center and have the time of my life.

Maddy is so cute! She looks like me (younger version) with all the bags (hahaha). I would buy more Dandelion stamps and of course fill my craft room with more craft supplies and tools! I can't ever have "enough" to play with. Cami

I wish I could be like "Maddy at the Mall" with all those packages and still be smiling. If I won a $1000 I would go to craft stores to pick up all those items on my "wish list".

I've got to get Maddy since she reminds me of me. If I won $1,000 I would go to Vegas.

How sweet of an idea! This would be the perfect gift for a little girls birthday card with money. If I had $1000 to spend, I would want to buy a ton of stuff online, or hit some of my local scrapbook stores...

I'm like Maddy at the Mall because I love to shop, especially when there's sales. I love a good bargain. If I won $1000.00 I'd go to Vegas and shop at the Outlet stores and at Trader Joes.
