Birthday Wishes by Lesley


Today we feature Lesley Croghan.  We are so excited to have her on the team!  Did you know that Lesley was one of the Top 5 in this year's Gallery Idol?  Way to go Lesley!  

Lesley absolutely LOVES the clear boxes and especially the clear purses from SRM.  For her, using these little purses is a quick and easy way to create a fun and playful birthday gift for a friend.  For her project, Lesley used the medium sizes clear purse


In creating her project Lesley used a new technique called "Freestyle Collage" where you gather unrelated items and put them together on your project.  She used a clear sentiments "WISH" from the We've Got Your Sticker Happy set.


Needing a card to go with her gift, Lesley decided to keep it simple.  She embossed the white card stock, used some punches to create the red flower and white circle and then used SRM's Stickers by the Dozen birthday design for the cupcake image and the "happy birthday" sentiment.  


What a perfect pair! And Lesley said that the "best part about his clear box medium purse is the fact that her David's Tea packets fit perfectly!"  I'll bet she will be using this idea again when she needs to create a quick gift! 


Did you know that SRM has 20 different containers from which to choose?  Take a look at all of them HERE!
