I was so lucky to get invited to my upline's house last week Friday for a Hana Hou gathering. Cindy lives on the other side of the island from me, but Wini and I made the drive and we had so much fun. The gathering included a delicious meal prepared by Craig Ikeda whose wife Eve is a demonstrator. What a bonus for us! Thanks Craig! We also got to make 4 cute projects and this one was my favorite! This cute bag was created using the XL Sizzix die called Baskets & Blooms and the basket part was created using a 5X7 cardstock. I love it! So, I have to share with you my story with this die...I was so excited when this die was released, I HAD to buy it. Creating it was another story because of the round base, I had no patience to assemble the round bottom for this basket. What did I do?? I sold this die to my girlfriend, that was it. Now, I NEED to buy another die because I simply LOVE this basket and the easy assembly!! I'll share with you the measurements and do a mini tutorial soon. The flower was created punching out 5 scallop circles and spritzing it with water. I love this flower, don't you? Many thanks to these ladies for the awesome raks...sorry I'm so late in posting my appreciation...I will have more thank you's soon...it takes me forever to get my act together!!
