Well, friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  As usual, they're a little too short for me, and I don't even work!  LOL!


I don't know if it's nation-wide, but here in Chicago there's an insurance company that has a television ad that asks "What's in your wallet?"  And, because my inspiration can come from just about anything, little wheels started turning in my head when I kept hearing that commercial.  So, this little pop-up wallet project was inspired  from my watching -- of all things! -- a television commercial.  This is the wallet closed... (added my initials for a designer look)!

And this is the wallet open...

I've added two (2) little pockets to hold money, credit cards, or whatever will fit.  I'm using my pop-up cube to hold some of my favorite photos that I'd like to show off.

Can you believe I actually paid almost $50 for the pop-up template?  Now I'm feeling ripped off!  When I looked at the template, I thought that it really didn't look worth what I paid and betted myself I could do a cut.file.  So, that's what I'm working on!  I should have a cut.file completed in a couple of days -- okay?

I'll be seeing you!

Hi, guys! I just found out from someone on the mb that the ad is for Capital One, which is a credit card company -- well, goes to show how interested I was in their product! Heee-heee!
