Great gift idea

Hey Stampers,

So tonight is the night that I get to meet my niece and I am just so excited. With the H1N1 flu the hospital is only allowing 2 family members in the building at a time visiting. My brother called to say that he would be at home for a couple hours so that I could go up and see them.

Here is a little day planner that I decorated using my new stamp set Friends 24-7. Using some old DSP but I like the way it turned out. Unfortunately the quality of the picture isn't that good. I've made up a couple others that I hope to share with you in the coming days. These make really nice gifts for the person you don't know what to get or even a little stocking stuffer.

Thanks for checking in!!!

Another gift card holder

Good morning Stampers,

First I want to start with the exciting news I received this morning. My sister-in-law will be delivering her baby sometime today. Her water broke last night, I'm just hoping that it's not too long for her. She's having a girl and I am just so excited to meet her.

On to the project, you've seen this gift card holder in an earlier post but I thought I would try something a little different this time. I put the to and from on the outside and a holiday message on the inside...sorry I didn't take a picture of that, wasn't thinking this morning. I just got this stamp set a couple weeks ago and just love the way it looks on this.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for checking in! Have a great day.

Scandinavian Season

Happy Monday! A start to another week. This is a retired stamp set from last year. I didn't get to use it too much at the time so I wanted to get some use in this year. It is a little hard to see in this picture but there are 3 layers to the tree. There was a lot of cutting involved.

Inspiration for this card came from here. I stamped this first with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder, I had to do this 3 times per card I wanted to make. It was a little more time consuming then I was hoping for.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow with another card using the same stamp set.

Right now I have 3 nephews and a niece on the way very shortly, I have the most fun shopping for them and seem to have a hard time finding when to stop. Anyone else like that?
Thanks for checking in, we'll see you back tomorrow hopefully.

Happy Friday

It's Friday, the beginning of the weekend. I have lots of crafting to do. My aunt and mom's craft show is next Saturday so I'm taking the weekend to do some extra crafts.

I really loved this card when I first saw it here. You can't really tell in the picture but it has a 3D effect on it.

Thanks for checking in, feel free to leave a comment.

Hey Stampers,

I told you I would be back! I got this idea from Corinne aka Roxy (blog on the right). She is definitely a fun lady, you should check out her blog. At the time I didn't have the stamp set she used so I finally used my Dasher stamp. This is such a cute stamp and it hardly costs a thing. This is a gift card holder cut out using the top note die from the big shot.
Hope you like it and thanks for checking in.

How long has it been?

Good Evening Stampers,

Wow it has been a while. This is such a busy time of year for everyone and I am not exception. There are 3 birthdays in November for our family, one in November, a new baby on the way (not mine), craft shows and then finally Christmas. Phew, I'm spinning just writing all those things. I have been working hard in my craft room but just haven't been able to find the time to share these things with you. I've decided that tonight I am going to start. I've made a lot of fun cards the last couple of months and none of them are my own creation, I've cased them from fellow demonstartors. I'm just so inspired when I blog surf the many wonderful blogs of fellow demonstartors....there are a lot of talented and creastive people out there.
The quality of this picture is not the best but it's because they are put in clear envelopes for packaging. I really love the Holiday Lineup stamp set. I saw this card here, and changed it up a little and used So Saffron instead of gold paper. Hope you enjoy and I'll be back tomorrow with more.
Thanks for stopping by!
