Mom's "Steppin' Out" Mothers Day Hat and Purse Box Set

Well, hello again!  Did everyone notice my reference to the Haiti Disaster?  It's at the top of the page -- thoughts and prayers definitely radiate too!

Wow!  I'm so excited about all my new following friends!  Hello and welcome!  Make sure you don't be strangers; visit often -- I love company!

Now that we've got the blog candy box all opened up, I thought I'd post a little something I hope will inspire your Mothers Day preparations.  It's a hat and bag/purse box set.  I think I'm going to put an embroidered scarf or hankie in the purse; candy is definitely going in the box.  Of course, you can put what you'd like in it!

Here it is:

Here is the hat box open:

I did the purse box by hand, but used my cricut for the heart and whatever that "other thing is" cut-outs (LOL).  I have a cut.file just about ready for the hat box (gotta "tweak" it a little more. I used the George cartride for the set.

Ummm, did I overlook any request(s) for my cookie/candy box?  Used George on that one too (since I neglected to mention it)
Anyway, tell me what you think of my Mom's "Steppin Out Set"!

I'll be seeing you!

OmG!!! you are so creative!! I am in awe! I have just downloaded the cut file. I hope to recreate it for mother's day. However, I am a beginner to the whole scrapbooking/cricut thing. So, I hope I can do it justice. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Audery
I love your blog..You are so very creative. Do you ever offer your files as SVG's? I don't have Design Studio and I don't have the George cartridge. It didn't come with my Cricut expression and as you know, it is very hard to find. I would love to be able to make the Mom's Stepping Out purse and hat boxes. In fact, most of your projects look like something I would love to be able to make. Thanks for sharing even if I can't make them. Bobbi bjm1952@gmail.com
