Pink Cat Studio Digi Release and Purse Mini Album SCUT, SVG and Hand Cut Template

Hello Friends! It's Thursday and it's the release of Pink Cat Studio digital images!! Fun, fun, fun! This week focuses on purses! Our girls are ready to shop! LOL! Aren't they super cute or what? These images are perfect for creating purse projects and cards for your girlfriends! Be sure to stop by the Pink Cat Studio blog and check out the awesome cards and projects created by the design team!!

I decided to work on a purse template and with this first project rather than creating a card, I decided to create a mini album. My album has 4 pages. Scroll down for the SCUT and SVG files and hand cut template.

Project Details:

Stamps: PCS digi image
Paper: DCWV Designer paper, CTMH card stock
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Lace, Making Memories Ric Rac, Nestabilities, Darice Rhinestone, organdy ribbon, Cricut, SCAL2

Quickie Instruction on the Mini Purse Album

***I'll post the picture tutorial some time today. I didn't have the time to finish it.

  • If you're using the SVG file, when uploading to your SCAL program, scale the image to a height of 11.25" and keep the proportion. . .the width should adjust accordingly. The SCUT is already scaled and ready to cut.
  • Follow the hand cut template for the score line.
  • To create the pages, reduce the height to "10.75" and cut the file 4 times
  • Score the pages. . .again following the hand cut template score lines
  • Adhere the two large panels of each cut together. Repeat the step for 2 more cuts
  • Stack each page on top of one another and adhere all the pages together by adhering the small flaps together. Adhere Only the small flaps.
  • Punch two holes at the top and thread a ribbon to each hole and tape the ends of the ribbon to the inside of the back panel.
  • Fold the small flap over and adhere to the back panel of the purse album
  • With the last cut, cut off one large panel and adhere to the inside of the back panel.

Hand cut Template

For those using the hand cut the template, using your photo editor program, increase the file to the desired height before printing. I recommend extending the file as large as you are able to print on an 8.5 x 11" paper.

With this second project, I created the purse using the Cricut "Wild Card" cartridge. I REALLY love this cartridge. There's so many possibilities in creating lots of different card projects. I can't wait to work on more projects using this cartridge.

I colored the image using my Copic Markers for both projects.

Card/Project Details:

Stamps: PCS digi image
Paper: K&Co Designer paper, CTMH card stock, SU Creamy Caramel
Ink: Copic markers, Pebbles Inc. pastels
Accessories: Nestabilities, trimmings, Grosgrain stitch ribbon, prima flowers, Accents daisy brad

Photo of the Day

Hey. . .I wanted to share a photo of my cat. Yesterday as I was heading downstairs I spotted my cat Dori hanging out at the corner of the hallway! She found a spot where the sun shines through the window. . .I guess she was cold. When I saw her laying there in that funny position I just had to run and get my camera and take a picture of her.

Hmmm. . .she sort of reminded me of myself right now. My cat is a bit overweight and I think she likes to lay this way because of her fat tummy. It reminded me that I need to get back and start working out again. I've been slacking for the past month. Just wanted to share. . .I thought it was such a cute pose.

Goodness! These are awesome projects, Maria! Love them!! Dori is adorable! My cat of almost 20 yrs passed away 2 yrs ago and she was probably around 18 pounds. She used to sit like that!! Are you near a Trader Joe's? The one near me is doing a Pet photo contest! This would be a great photo to enter!
