I did a craft show this weekend and a few people asked me for gift card holders. I really didn’t have any so here are a bunch I’ll have at my next craft show! I’ll also be doing the snow flake one at my Free Beginner stamp class on Tuesday night!
It’s super simple to make. The card stock measures 7 3/4 x 5. Score at 2 1/2 & 6. The Designer Series Paper measures 2 1/4 x 4 3/4 & the smaller one on the bottom is 1 1/2 x 4 3/4. The piece on the inside where the “To/From” stamp is measures 2 1/4 x 4 3/4 as well (it’s on the back of the flap where the bigger DSP is).
Just glue the sides of the small flap so it will hold the gift card. The band is 1 x 7 3/4. Wrap around the holder and glue closed. I used the small scallop punch with circle punches. You could use the lager scallop if you like or just circle punches. It works up SO fast.
I made these to fit in Stampin’ Up!’s note card envelopes.

One of my new customers purchased a very old stamp set, Lovely As A Tree. It’s been around for 11 years, that’s almost half as long as Stampin’ Up! has been around. There are over 9000 samples up on Splitcoast Stampers of the set!
I did two different designs that are similar, I saw this up on Pinterest. Then I did a more Christmas type card. Again, these look so much better in person. Enjoy!

Did a craft show last week and realized I didn’t have a lot of baby cards to sell. I saw a card similar to this a while back, but can’t find it now. I used some retired DSP, can’t for the life of me think of it now, gaining an hour of sleep didn’t help me much!

I realized I didn’t have any class samples up past this Friday. So here’s a clean and simple card we’ll be doing on Nov 9th. The inside is decorated as well, but my battery died on my camera and I forgot to recharge.
Lovely As A Tree is one of my all time favorite sets. I always do some Christmas card with it every year. It’s been around for 10 years now! Every year when the new catalog comes out, we keep wondering if it will retire. Who knows! Thanks for stopping by!
Card Stock – Always Artichoke, River Rock
Stamp sets: Lovely As A Tree
Accessories: Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon, Striped Embossing Folder, Dazzling Diamonds

Anything with the word Chocolate in it must be good!!! These are actually double pocket Tea Bag holders I saw on this tutorial on Youtube. I actually did it a little differently (besides putting Ghiradelli chocolate in them!). If you watch the video, she folds the 6 x 6 paper on the diagonal in half. I didn’t do this. I’ll show you how I did it below.
These are Christmas ones I made for my upcoming craft show. They work up really fast and are so cute.
We are also going to be making the one with the mitten in my class on Friday. That class is full.
Oops, this one is a little crooked with the cut out words. I never notice it until I take a picture of it!
I’ll have to fix that one before I sell it!
Ok, the way I did it without folding it was I put markers on my Stampin’ Up! Score Pal at 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 4 3/4 & 5 3/4. I have the black line on my 4 1/4 mark all the time. I score so many cards it was just easier to see the score line.
Lay your 6 x 6 piece of paper on the diagonal with the point at 4 1/4 and score at the 3 3/4 & 4 3/4 maker.
Now, turn the paper and put the opposite points at the 4 1/4 mark again. Score at the 2 3/4 & 5 3/4 mark. Now, watch the video on how to assemble. Good luck!

A friend pinned a Batman logo on Pinterest and when I looked at it, I somehow focused on the negative space of the bat. What I saw was the Stampin’ Up Word Window Punch. That’s how I made this Batman Logo! I used the oval Nestabilities in 2 different sizes, the smaller one in black and the larger one in yellow. Using the Word Window Punch, punch out a few pieces of some Post-it-notes (a few at a time because they are thin) and place them on the black oval to form the “negative space” as shown. Then punch it out. I used the 5 petal punch to do the top of the bats head. Now I just have to figure out what to make with this Batman emblem! Pretty cool huh?

I’m trying to make up for lost time Here’s a design I CASED from The Night Stamper. Love her work. I sold a lot of cards at my last craft show so it’s time to restock, plus the show I’m doing in 2 weeks will want a lot of cards. Last year at that show I sold about 30 or 40 cards. It’s at my parents retirement community and they like to send cards to each other, especially “get well soon”!

I didn’t realize I haven’t posted anything in 2 weeks! That’s not like me! But it’s been a crazy two weeks. I finished up school (finally got my degree, 30 years after all my friends did!) so I should have more time to get ready for my craft shows and Christmas projects!
My craft show last weekend was great. Have to replenish all the cards I sold. People loved my tins, too bad I can’t find any more of them. I wish Provocraft would sell them again!
Here’s a cute snowman box I’m going to fill with candy. I have to wait for my Stampin’ Up! bags to come in though!
