Let me show you how to make this really roomy box bag! I found this idea on a video by Kelly Gettelfinger who posts videos on YouTube as Always Stampin.

Hi Jan ~ Love this purse! off to the craft room to make a couple for the earrings I made for my mother in laws birthday. I have something that may help you a little. I too struggle with measuring, grrr! When I make my purses, I'm going to cut a little square of paper an inch square and use that for making my Mark. I think it will be easier and take out the frustration for my lack of measuring ability! let me know if this helps and thank you again for the awesome video!
Many thanks, Janet. I'm so pleased you've successfully made the smaller version. ☺ I think this is going to be so useful, especially in the run to Christmas. Did you see my other Kelly bag - the Kelly's Clutch Bag? Same idea but it closes! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
Beautiful! Love this bag, and will definitely make a couple to hold greeting cards or maybe a few treats. Thanks for Sharing. Also, yes please do a video on that small clutch bag. Would love to see that!
Hi, Rose Marie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this tutorial. I posted the video for the Kelly's Clutch Bag yesterday. This is the link - I don't know if it'll work from here! Let's see - LOL: https://youtu.be/XmJi82GxDJw ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
I just found your Channel and I must say I love your videos. What I especially like is that your videos are truly tutorials because you create in real time and actually explain what you are doing. So many others say their vids are tuts, but they only show the completed item while just telling you what they did. I like it so much better the way you do it. Thanks so much for sharing.De
I would love to see how you made the clutch purse style one as well.................this are very, very cute. You did an awesome job and I LOVE your videos. They are so easy to follow and now I want to try this!!! Thank you so much for sharing all your terrific videos!
Hi, Patricia. There's been a lot of interest shown in the clutch bag so I'll get a video made. I have two ideas how I might be able to sort out the side panels - there's a solution there somewhere! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
Thank you for sharing your video. I love your project. Your video is very clear and the instructions are great. I love watching your videos. I will certainly try this project and many of your others. I especially loved the pink one and the white one. Of course Pink is my favorite color.
Really love this box bag. I have been looking for a box that was bigger, love the amount of cards/envelopes it holds! Thank you so much for explaining how to do those folds, I will definitely be making a couple of these! Love them all, but the one you decorated with the flourishing phrases is my favourite! Thank you Jan!
Very classy project! I like the clarity and pacing of your speech, as well as your nice nails! Some people's pitch and/or pacing makes it hard to stay 'interested. Your diction is great ! Thank you so much!
This is a great project. I love the soft suede bag. I have to tell you I had to laugh when you were trying to do the 1" measurements for where to place the handles! That is something that I could see happening to me! When you said "That was painful wasn't it" really tickled me. Thanks for making me smile today.
Yes thank you Kelly, and Jan B cards! I honestly love each and every one of those bags. The one that looked cream colored on my phone, with lace handles; OMGosh just Gorgeous. Did you say that maybe in the future you'd teach us the clutch bag, or was it the lace handled one? Either one, I'm up to kearning. In the meantime, I'm m a king this one for my niece. It's perfect to put her birthday gift in. TY4S again and best wishes, Pat
I like them all Jan, especially the Pink one. Love Soft Suede too. Thanks for sharing your tutorial and a video for the Clutch Bag too please. Like your idea of 'pegs' to hold things in place and I notice your's are personalised. xxx
Many thanks, Christine. Yes, I will do a video for the cltch bag too. ☺ Some of the "personalised" pegs are a few I had left over from a craft show I did and some I've receieved as swaps!! Happy crafting, JanB.
Wow, amazing, wonderful, the 3rd box using your Stampin Up is the best please please say you have all the information on your blog. I want to make that one. Also you did this project in under an hour I am going to be lucky to do it in 2 or 3 hours. Lovely box. Hugs from Canada :)
Hi, Suzy Q and a big hi to Canada. YouTube has done it again. I've responded to your comment but it's not appearing. Sorry if this is the second time you're receiving this - better twice than never!!! If you're referring to the Very Vanilla Box Bag, yes the details are on Sunday's blog. If you're referring to the clutch bag, I'll be making a video very soon! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
Hi Jan, sorry flower i have been making along with you today and going to make some for wee gifts for some special friends that i am meeting up with in October, thank you flower for a lovely idea especially the fancy one which you know is going to have to be made. x
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
