The 3rd challenge for the months Altered pages sponsor month for Gingersnap was " The colour of money" I decided to make a purse, so I used the foreign currency collage sheet from Altered pages and using the tape transfer technique made an A4 sheet, wow did that hurt the arms, all that rubbing!!! Then I backed it with cotton and stitched the purse on the machine.

I made this card for my Dad for this years Fathers day. Its a never ending card made using papers, images and alphabets for the fantastic Crafthouse Press Men's Travel and sport CDrom which is available at a crazy price from Sarah at the Fruit Pixie. The instructions for making this card are available on the Fruit Pixies face book page. If you go the the Fruit Pixie following the link on the right there is a link to the page on the Homepage.
The next challenge for Gingersnap sponsored by Altered pages this month was bags and tags. I made this travel tag from packaging from all those craft items that come in thick plastic packaging. I then collage onto the back of the plastic, both pieces, and then glued them together. I will be able to use this as it is durable enough to be knocked about a bit. Altered pages have some great travel document themed sheets, why not take a look.
