Tech Talk Blog Hop

I have to say that this is my favorite set out of the whole release.  I am a total geek and I work in IT at a Credit Union, so this set is perfect for me. Melanie is my hero for designing this set. :o)

I made two projects for the Tech Talk blog hop. This first project is for the girls.  I had to have Carolyn's template after seeing the samples during the release party.  I made a cute little "leather" purse with Pure Luxury Tan Leather card stock.  I printed the template in two sizes.  I made the purse in the larger size and then used the smaller template to make a little pocket for the front.  I sewed the edges to make it look more real.  I stamped several smaller images from the Tech Talk set all over the purse.  I made a little sewn tag for the front of the purse with two of the phrases from the set.





















My second project is a card that could be given to a boy or girl in your life.  I loved all the scenes that everyone created and decided to make one of my own.  I made a little window frame and used some DP from my Basic Grey Mellow stack.  I stamped the little doe from Life is Good on the DP to make it look like a doe in the forest.  The little clock on the wall is the face of one of the clocks from Nina's set, Special Fathers. 

















Below is a picture of the inside of the card.
