My Self Made Swag!

Hey Purse lovers and Paper Crafters!

I am talking to you today and showing off my latest creation inspired by Maymay Helms. Yes Maymay, I did it too and love the way it turned out.

Check out this video to see it!


I used Carta Bella’s Botanical Garden paper kit found on Maymay’s Store along with the handle, binder clips, and the small magnetic discs. It was out of stock when I realized I needed two kits to complete this. Luckily, I found some papers on along with the matching 6 x 6 paper set and large magnetic discs. I used dazzles and various other embellishments purchased from

The buckle and chipboard were purchased from Joann’s and I had the glitter paper and colored card stock on hand. It took me several days and I had a hard time inserting the binder clips in the holes. I finally realized I needed to really push them through the holes to make the clip open wide enough to insert the album pages. As I waited for the paper to make the front of the purse, I decorated and made the album pages.

It took me a good week to complete it and I can’t wait to make more.

Let me know if you would make this and what papers you would use.

Thanks for stopping by!
