Surprise Pop Up Gift Bag Gift Card Holder

Scrolling through Instagram the other day, I saw a little video by Tanu Creative – it was a card that had this cute little gift bag pop up when you opened it. I fell in love. (I’ve finally created my own video – you can watch it here). I decided to try and come upContinue reading “Surprise Pop Up Gift Bag Gift Card Holder”

Hand-Penned Thanks

I decided to take a a five minute break from all the holiday card-, treat-, and giftcard holder- making (that was a mouthful) and create a quick thank you card. I am always sending and giving out thank you cards, so it was time to replenish my stock. This one couldn’t have been easier toContinue reading “Hand-Penned Thanks”

Holly Jolly Wishes Card

Let’s take it nice and easy for this Friday! A layer of DSP and a layer of cardstock and a snowflake cut in half – your card is done. I used some of the retired Sale-A-Bration paper for this card, but any Real Red containing DSP will do – I’ve included some examples available inContinue reading “Holly Jolly Wishes Card”

Penguin Place Wine Tag

I’ve been checking “techniques I’ve always wanted to try but haven’t” off my list lately – and this wine tag uses the reverse image stamping technique. I wanted my penguins going every which way – but the stamp set only has him going in one. I took a 3 1/2″ by 5″ piece of JustContinue reading “Penguin Place Wine Tag”

October 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternative – #2

After making my first alternative for October’s kit, I was getting ready to make the rest of the cards per the instructions – but …. another idea popped in my head as I tidied my work area: a wine tag! I used similar measurements to an earlier wine tag I made this year (see postContinue reading “October 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternative – #2”

Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack

Something I almost always overlook in Stampin’ Up! catalogs are the Memories & More card packs. Why? I don’t scrapbook and for some reason, I have it stuck in my head that you can only use the contents for making scrapbook pages. Well, I’m here to tell you (and hopefully myself) that this simply isn’tContinue reading “Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack”

Halloween Galore

Where did October go?!?!? I found myself with a very big to-do list this past weekend – a spooky to-do list. I had to make treat holders for co-worker’s children; cards (greeting and the bingo variety) for my oldest son’s class, and the dozen or so cards needed for my family and friends. Fortunately, IContinue reading “Halloween Galore”

More Bay Window Birthdays

I had an awesome opportunity this weekend to attend a retreat run by demonstrator Michelle Halleen. It was a great day – full of crafting, information, and fun. It’s been quite a while since such a number of us have been able to gather like this. With retreats and gathering almost inevitably comes the chanceContinue reading “More Bay Window Birthdays”
