All Dressed Up Christmas

I’m in the land of the Mouse this week – annual Disney trip – but I can still post a project!!!

I made this for my team swap last week.  I did add a bit of glitter to the collar on the swap ones, but forgot to put it on this one.  When we do the class, I’ll post the final version.  We will be making this in a class in October so if you want to make it, sign up on my Workshop page.

I won’t be posting until late next week so Happy Labor Day!

Gift Bow Die

Had a great team meeting last night!  My team is growing so big!  I might need to move it to a bigger venue next time!!

The project we made last night (have to make some project when my team gets together) was this really cute gift card holder.

The basic card design is the same as this one. But I used the new Gift Bow Sizzix Die in the Holiday Mini.  The card worked up so fast!  These are great craft fair goodies. People constantly ask me for gift card holders.

The card base is 7 1/2 x 5. Score at 1 3/4 & 5 1/4.  The DSP is 4 3/4  x 1 1/2 and 4 3/4 x 2  The band is 1 3/4 x 8.

We will make these in an upcoming workshop!

Do you know someone who could use some more organization in their craft space? Or could you use some pretty organization yourself? This set will make your space a little more cheerful while helping you stay organized! You can corral all those wonderful ideas and inspirations on the pretty framed pin board complete with rose push pins. You can keep your notes from running away with the pretty clipboard. All your lovely completed cards will be nicely sorted in the hanging card pockets sorted by category making them easy to find.


This great organizational project comes to you designed by Amanda!

Welcome your house guests with this vintage-style topiary welcome banner.  This would look great in any home’s entryway.  Make one as a gift and another one for yourself.  Colors can be customized to match your entryway’s color scheme.  This would also make a great home décor class.
